Welcome to Year 5!
This year marks the beginning of the journey for Upper Key Stage 2 and we have worked hard to ensure the children have an enjoyable and inspirational experience throughout this academic year.
Over the course of 6 terms, we will be covering these exciting topics;
Our teachers are Mr Kearney (Ocean Class), Miss Claridge (Atlantic Class) and Mr Barnett (Pacific Class). We are looking forward to lots of exciting learning experiences ahead.
National Gliders Competition workshop part 1
A group of Year 5 children are taking part in a national competition to build a glider working in partnership with Writhlington Secondary School. Our first workshop focused on the features of a glider and then they started to create the basic shape of their glider in teams of 3 or 4. Using foam board they cut out the shape and then put it together, demonstrating great team work skills! With some test flights completed, the next session will focus on adapting the gliders and personalising them to get the longest flight possible!
