Year 5 took part in a Sikh inspired day as their Stunning Start to their R.E unit of Sikhism. Both classes took part in various Sikh inspired activities throughout the day, beginning by gaining an insight into the history of Sikhism. The children went on to create their own Sikh flags and temples as well as studying a range of different traditional artefacts. The children were also given the opportunity to tie dye their own bandanas as well as trying a range of tasty Indian snacks.

A Welcoming message from UKS2!

Year 5 have had a great start to the year taking part in various thought provoking activities, including ‘Goals for the year’ hands, and self-love portraits. The children very much enjoyed this as it gave them an opportunity to express their creativity.

The children also took part in Viking Day as a stunning start to our History topic of The Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. The children made their own shelters using any local materials they could find in the forest garden. They were even given the opportunity to eat like a Viking, trying some delicious homemade stew cooking by Mr Conder.
In Autumn 2, Year 5 took part in a Geography Project Day as an introduction to their topic of United Kingdom. The children worked in groups to create 3-dimensional landscapes of the UK. They used a range of recycled resources and a great deal of creativity. To finish off their landscapes the children added flags to label the different geographical areas of their landscapes. To view these please open the document below.

The school took part in No Pens Day on Wednesday 26th November. This was an opportunity to promote oracy around the school as well as different learning environments. Year 5 spent their maths lesson outside gathering a range of resources to create and represent numbers and mathematical devices.
