AMRC Visit

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

Year 5 visited the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC)  this morning. They were shown some of the new technology that is being designed, which is why companies like Boeing and Rolls Royce have their own factories near by. This is too state of the art to photograph. They finished off with a visit to Factory 2050 where amongst the robots doing amazing thins they saw how augmented and virtual reality could be used in industry.


Making Stonehenge

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

We got into three groups to make Stonehenge. One group made Stonehenge with Lego, another group made Stonehenge using clay and the third group made Stonehenge using PlasterPlay. We worked together to make it strong and solid. The groups used pictures of the Stonehenge to get ideas about building it but, their own version. Miss Allen (our teacher) was really impressed about our teamwork and how we were getting on. It was educational.


Division Questions

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

This morning, Miss Allen wrote division questions on the window. During maths, we answered the questions in groups. We had to work out the answers using our times tables knowledge.Some of them had remainders because they were not an exact multiple.After we’d finished our maths, we checked the answers as a class.

Everyone wrote their loved ones name on a tag and hung it on the tree. We lit a candle and said prayers.


Year 5 go ‘Bear Grylls’

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

Year 5 braced the cold conditions and developed important life skills such as cutting with a bow saw and creating shelters. After all the hard work, we huddled together to enjoy hot chocolate just like Shackleton and his men during their expedition.


Wath Christmas Lights Switch-on

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

What a lovely start to Christmas. We were in the Christmas spirit with 40 children singing beautifully and Alex helping with the light switch-on after winning the Christmas drawing competition.
