While some of our friends were off celebrating Eid, we all worked together for the day. Look at our designs for restaurants that we worked on... which would you go to?
Miss Gee bought us roses.... and we chopped them up! We were scientists for the afternoon and dissected our roses to find out what was inside. Then we created 'exploded diagrams' to show the parts that help a flowering plant to reproduce. Find out about PHOTOSYNTHESIS here...
instead of the usual 'Big Writing' today, we had a challenge! We had to either write a known story, or make up our own based on one of three images... in exactly 50 words!
Here are my favourites!

Welcome back! This is the final term in Year 5 as we continue our hard work to prepare for YEAR 6... time is flying by!
In Summer Term, our main topic will be World War 2 and we will be looking at reasons, results and experiences of people during this time.
Why not find out what World War 2 was all about by watching this video...
Just in case you 'lose' your spellings or 'forget' to take them home... Here are the spellings for this half term! Enjoy! :) - You can even print them out!
We have been learning steel pans throughout this year and we finally got to perform in front of an audience! Have a look at our videos...
I would just like to say a big thank you for all the parents who came to Parents' Evening today. It was a pleasure to see you all and I am really pleased with the turnout! Every parent I saw, I had such a lot to say to... it's a shame we get such a short amount of time in which to talk.
However, if there is one thing I want to make clear, it is that I am so proud of all my children in 5G. They all work tremendously hard and make my job a pleasure! I know we will all carry on the great work and keep shooting for the stars as we head towards the final year of school.
Thanks again for giving time to come and see me. Sorry if you had to wait - I'm sure you'll agree that it was worth it.
You know where I am if you have anything you'd like to discuss.
Miss Gee 😁
Today wi did NO writing in Big Writing...SHOCK, HORROR! Instead, we used images from our World Book Day Book, Journey by Aaron Becker, to rehearse our writing. Have a look at how we did... what could we do better? what did we do well?
What a fabulous day we had yesterday. Every class in the school unwrapped their copy of this amazing picture book and spent the whole day taking part in fun activities in response to it.
We began with some drama work with Ed from Anchor. We looked at the journey from different points of view and also the different types of journey the book explores: adventure, emotion and friendship.
we had a fabulous day out today at Manchester Museum for our topic on Ancient Egypt. I have to say how brilliantlyball the children in 5G were in the way they represented our school, and also at being detectives and finding out more about life 5000 years ago. Have a look at the photos in the gallery and leave a comment if you can tell me anything about what you see....
Inhave been lucky enough to be part of the Forest School with my new amazing team of adventurers. We have had such an amazing time and really developed our confidence and communication skills! Thank you for being amazing, gang! 😁
