What's new?

Weaver Hall

For our Topic, we visited Weaver Hall to learn all about the Anglo-Saxons. While we were there, we met Olaf the resident Anglo-Saxon. We found out how his ancestors were invaded and about village life including farming, hunting and crafts.

We worked as archaeologists to discover what a burial can tell us about Anglo-Saxon art and culture.


Which Way Now?

The Which Way Now? Project is a 4 week programme which offers Year 5 the opportunity to develop their team work skills, leadership skills, communication skills and cooperation skills.

Through outdoor and adventurous activities, these skills help to play a major part within a balanced curriculum.

Lest We Forget

Remembering our Heroes.


Our class Amaryllis

We hope you have noticed our class flowers that the children have grown on their tables. As part of a circle time exercise, we were looking at how different we can be and how through lots of nurturing, we can grow to be very special. I think you will agree that they have looked after them very  well!


The Mayans

In our new topic we have been learning all about the Mayans. Through our art work we have produced some stunning face masks which we discovered were decorated with hieroglyphics and other symbols.

We also got our hands dirty making our very own clay pots which again we decorated with Mayan symbols and hieroglyphics. We are sure you agree that Year 5 are a very talented bunch!


Stations of the Cross

Some children from Cardinal Newman High School came to teach our children all about the different Stations of the Cross. Our children worked in small groups creating pictures and stories and learnt hoe Jesus felt during this time in his life. We ended with a lovely prayer and gave thanks to God.
