Mrs Broadbent and 4 lovely children were fortunate enough to attend the prestigious Golden Owl Awards last night. We got lots of inspiration for our entry next year and met some famous faces!
Year 5 have had a great day for Red Nose Day. We have all come to school in our PJs and have even explored quicksand as part of our Science Week. What a busy day!
5B have had a very exciting and very exhausting day in Otley and on the chevin today. They will definitely sleep well tonight!
We tasted lots of foods which have origins in Yorkshire. Some we liked, some we didn't! It was good fun though.
5C enjoyed their visit to Otley. We conducted some fieldwork in the town centre and then enjoyed exploring the chevin. Great weather for a great day out!
We have spent today celebrating our favourite books. We even dressed up as some famous characters. Can you spot your favourite?
Our topic for Spring 2 is all about Yorkshire.
We learned all about Safety-Selfies and how to keep ourselves safe when taking and sharing selfies.
Last Friday was NSPCC Number Day and we had lots of fun in year 5. We came dressed in mathematical clothing and took part in maths-themed activities.
Some children brought things from home to celebrate and share their religion with the rest of the class. Everyone had a great time looking at different clothes, objects and tasting a range of different food. Great fun all round!
Some more from bouldering. Half of Y5 have now visited. Half still to go (and really excited about it too!).
We have been writing adverts to persuade people to buy our products. We even got out the 'green screen' to film them with! Here are some of the videos we created.
As part of our topic on Islam, we have looked at Islamic art and have designed some of our own. We thought about our design, transferred it onto a polystyrene tile and then printed them in a range of different colours. The final results look great!
We are having a great time learning about different materials and their properties. We have been carrying out lots of investigations and thinking scientifically.
A few of us were lucky to attend a Robotics day with other local schools. More robotics to follow for the rest of Y5 later in the year.
Our first group of climbers went to The Lab today and had a fantastic morning trying out the sport of bouldering. We were very impressed with every child's behaviour - you represented our school fantastically! We can't wait to take the rest of Year 5.
Here is the Parents' Guide to Leeds Climbing Lab. We are really looking forwards to visiting and having a go at bouldering. If you haven't yet returned your slip, but would like to go, there are still a few places left! http://www.climbinglab.co.uk/
This half term, we are going to become Sports Leaders in PE. The first week involved giving clear instructions and understanding the importance of verbal communication.
Every fortnight, Y5 and Y6 join together for Problem Solving. It is great to work with different children and work collaboratively. This week, the problem involved mixed up tea cups and saucers.
We have started our Fractions, Decimals and Percentages topic in Maths with lots of hands-on and practical activities.
