This week we have been celebrating National School Sports Week. Year 5 took part in an afternoon of activities. We selected four children to report on the day. Please take time to read their reports below.
'Hello to the the year 5 and 6's Sports Week, this blog is to recount what happened on Monday 25 June.This was a day full of sportsmanship and relaxation.
Our reporter contacted 5E's top goalscorer:
He explained that he didn't care about losing and it's the taking part and trying your best that matters. Unluckily, we lost all our games. Through all this tiring work the children enjoyed the rest of the day in the shade of the cool trees
After this courageous day children stated they had the time of their lives'

This week we brought our literacy to life! We created characters using punctuation, then used plasticine and an animation app to create short films.
We loved spending time enjoying the activities to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Last week 5E celebrated British Science Week by taking part in a number of different experiments. See the photos below!
5E recently visited the Manchester Museum where they were able to have first hand experience with real artifacts! Some of the objects were very precious and were over 3000 years old! They visited Asru (the local Mummy) and learnt about her life in Egypt.
5E have enjoyed looking at the book ‘Du Iz Tak’ during World Book Day. We spent time de-coding the story and deciding what each of the nonsence words might mean. We then created our own page of the book using the English words. Take a look below.
5E have been working with fractions for a few weeks. As a challenge they were asked to decide why some questions were harder than others. We loved discussing reasons why we thought certain questions were harder than others. Take a look at our thoughts below.
Wilbraham Primary School are taking part in 'The Mile a Day Challenge'
The challenge is for every class to run/jog/ or walk for a mile every day starting Monday
15th January. All of the children and adults are joining in.
Year 5 have already started this and have attached some photographs - can you find yourself in any of them?
You can watch a short video link on youtube - Movement is Life - Dr William Bird.
This explains why we are joining this challenge and what the advantages are.
Year 5 have been researching some famous black people throughout history to find out how they helped change society.
They have also looked at some African Art work and drawn their own copies of this.
Wow! What a start to the new year we have had! We have talked lots about what we would like to hapen this year and we are already looking forward to all the exciting events coming up this year!
We have been getting to know our new classmates better. We did this by playing some teambuilding activities. Pictures below!
