Put a nose on it!

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!

We tasted lots of foods which have origins in Yorkshire. Some we liked, some we didn't! It was good fun though.

Islam afternoon - January 2017

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!

More Bouldering - January 2017

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.

Islamic Art Printing - January 2017

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!

Science - Spring Term 2017

We are having a great time learning about different materials and their properties. We have been carrying out lots of investigations and thinking scientifically.

Robotics - January 2017

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.

Parents' Guide - Leeds Climbing Lab

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!

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.
