In Summer 2 we will be learning all about musical instruments and then designing and making our own.
There are loads of fun activities for us this week including Martial Fitness, the ice rink and "Heart-Start" Training.
We found out how sound is made and how it travels. We also got lots of ideas for making our own musical instruments next half term!
We were very lucky to have the Firefighters from Cookridge Firestation come into school to talk to us. We are all going to go home and make sure we have smoke detectors and an evacuation plan!
Congratulations to Marykate, the winner of the KS2 prize for 100% attendance week. Happy spending Marykate!
Liz Pichon, author and illustrator of the Tom Gates series, visited school to tell us about her work. We really enjoyed listening to her and we all picked up some top tips. It was great to meet her and she signed our books and some of our doodles!
We researched mythical creatures and then made our own Top Trump cards. We enjoyed playing against each other to see who would be victorious!
We used Mod Roc to create our memory boxes. We also had great fun using sponges to paint and decorate them.
Year Five are very proud of you all!
Here are a few photos of our recent visit to the cold seaside town of Scarborough!
Year Five really enjoyed designing their own Mr Men and Little Miss characters. They also made some fantastic books!
We raise lots of money for different charities. Here are some photographs from Children In Need and Comic Relief.
We had a visit from a Mr Popplewell (a Victorian mill owner). He tried to persuade us (the country people!) to go and work in his factories in London. He said it would be much better for us and promised us better working conditions and more pay. I hope we don't all live to regret it. We even made our own podcasts persuading people to go and work in the factories.
Miss Seel brought her original Victorian dress to show us. We also had a brilliant time at the Victorian school, although we prefer school in 2012!
We visited Lawnswood Cemetery to see the Victorian gravestones and see what we could find out about people from the past.
We went to Asda bakery as part of our science topic about Reversible and Irreversible changes. We also looked at different foods as part of our French topic.
