Today a very lucky group of Y5 children were treated to a tour of the Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City. This was the final session in a 5 week literacy program, that has seen them engage in a range of different activities, including; scouting reports, match reports, prediction, reading and the occasional game of football. The whole group represented the school fantastically and were fascinated by the tour. Please enjoy the pictures below. Have a fantastic Easter.
Since Christmas, year 5 have been working with Mr Clarke, learning how to play steel pans. They have worked incredibly hard and showed some real talent! Today they got the chance to show off their talents not only to Mr Eccles, but also the rest of year 5 and year 4. They performed with confidence and showed that they had made amazing progress in quite a short time! Pictures and videos can be seen below!
Today we enjoyed reading our book -The Journey. It is a fantastic picture book that has so many exciting details. We worked incredibly hard to create a narrative to go with the brilliant pictures. Can you hear your part..?
Wednesday 1st March was an exciting day for 5E! We went on our trip to the Manchester Museum.
We were able to spend the morning in various different galleries. We looked at fossils, dinosaur artifacts, taxidermy, and various other exhibits featuring the natural world.
After our lunch we had our Egyptian experience. We were introduced to the museum's very own Mummy, Asru. We were then tasked with finding a range of artifacts in the gallery that Asru could take into her tomb for her journey to the afterlife. We also got the chance to handle some real artifacts, some of which were more than 3000 years old! Truly amazing and a fantastic experience.

This week we have talked about what remembrance is, and why we think it is important to remember. We learnt that the poppy is a symbol of remembrance following the First World War (1914-1918) and has continued to be used as a mark of respect to all soldiers who have lost their lives fighting for their countries since.
We found out about Mr Eccles' family who served during WW1. His Great Great Uncle Percy was killed in action, in France. We were able to see photographs of his grave, read his death record and see some other interesting artifacts from the war.
We also spoke about what we will be remembering during the 2 minute silence, that we will observe as a class, at 11am on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month (Armistice Day).
