Science Investigation

This week we were inspired by Felix Baugartner's world record skydive.  We carefully planned, constructed and conducted our own investigation to ensure our eggstronaut landed safely after being released from a high vantage point.  We looked at how the surface area of a parachute affects the time it takes for objects to fall to the ground.  Ask Year 5 what their results were!

Felix Baumgartner's supersonic freefall from 128k' - Mission Highlights

" Jump into more adrenaline filled aerial action: After flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump for the ages from the edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket-powered airplane.

5B have been studying and replicating artwork based on the moon.  We are using these images to inspire us to create our very own moon kennings.

Science Invention Project

Some members of Year 5 created their own science inventions at home and shared these in class with us.  Well done to everybody who took part!  

Spectacular Science!

To celebrate British Science Week, Year 5 participated in a science assembly and then our own workshop.  We focused on forces and the impact which these have on objects around us.  

World Book Day

World Book Day 1
To celebrate World Book Day the children all celebrated by wearing their pyjamas.  We read a selection of story openers together and played a guessing game about our favourite books.

Today 5B experienced life beyond the stars at Spaceport. We experienced the wonders of the tropical night sky with the help of the world's largest robotic telescope in 'The Observatory' exhibition.  We also saw space as we have never seen it before in the 360 degrees theatre where we were transported to another galaxy.  Finally we took an exciting space ride through the cosmos filled with space-age imagery and futuristic fun!


Thank you for the contribution, which made this a spacetastic trip for everyone!

It's Showtime Greek Style!

5B have been busy design, making and performing their Greek plays over the last few weeks as part of our topic work.  Well done everybody!

Rock Stars Progress!

This week in our LGBT topic, 5B have been classifying secrets.  We looked at secrets which are important to keep and at secrets which need sharing to help keep people safe. 


We have also been learning about the life of Wentworth Miller, who is a famous actor.  He had a secret which he was too scared to share for many years.  He felt like every day was a test and when he failed the test there was a price to pay.  He felt that he was living in survival mode.  He was living a lie.  In 2013 he finally shared his secret that he was gay and now wants all children to know that they are not alone.


5B have produced lots of excellent biographies on Wentworth Miller and some stunning artwork, contrasting his feelings before and after his secret was shared. 

Who Invented Democracy?


As part of our topic hook, all of our children had the opportunity to try some traditional Greek food!  They also learnt about the Greek alphabet, democracy, Greek vases and listened to a famous Greek myth.

Transition Visits


Over the last few weeks, Year 5 have had the opportunity to visit the Co-op Academy North Manchester to participate in science, P.E. and computing activities.  We would like to thank the members of staff who worked with our children to make the experience enjoyable for everybody.







In Maths the children have been perfecting their measuring skills in our practical challenge.  

5B's Sssspecial Visitors


Today 5B started their new topic entitled “Can Animals Survive Without Plants?”  Dylan from Dylan’s Reptile Time visited us to share his fascinating facts about reptiles and the children had an opportunity to handle some very special visitors too.

Well done to everybody who conquered their fears today!  A memorable day for everybody!
