Year 5

Recorders

On Monday, Year Five had their first recorder lesson of the year with Miss Smith. We learnt rhythms, names for different notes, how to hold the recorder and most importantly, how to play a nice sound! We all have very colourful recorders to play! 

White Quarry Farm

Year 5 visited White Quarry Farm as a follow-up to our DT topic of bread-making. We found out lots of fascinating information about arable farming from Tango the farmer and Annie from the Country Trust. We visited the granary, where we practised grinding wheat to turn it into flour. To link with our recent artwork about William Morris, we created some beautiful floral prints using leaves, flowers and herbs from the farm and gardens. We also sketched wild flowers in the meadow and met some of the farm animals. We had a simply glorious day and Tango and Annie were incredibly impressed with the children's behaviour and impeccable manners. You are a credit to St Peter's Class 5.

Bread Making

For our latest DT topic, we have been making and shaping bread in Class 5. We mixed the ingredients together to form a dough, which was quite a sticky process! After kneading the dough and leaving it to rest, we shaped it carefully and then baked it in the oven. Our bread tasted delicious & there are some very talented bakers in Class 5. Fantastic work!

Lineham Farm

Year 5 went to Lineham Farm for an exciting activity day. We practised our map-reading skills during orienteering and learnt den-making and fire-building skills during our bush-craft challenge. Using the low-ropes, we helped each other to navigate a tricky obstacle course and worked together brilliantly as a team to complete the rope swing challenge. We had an absolutely fantastic day & the children were complimented on their beautiful manners. Well done everybody!

International Week

In Class 5, we learnt about Japan as part of our International week. We practised counting up to 10 in Japanese! We also created our own Japanese fans and designed an information leaflet containing lots of interesting facts about Japan.

A special end of year message for Class 5...

Abbey House Museum

Year 5 became detectives for the morning at Abbey House Museum. We travelled through the cobbled streets, hunting for clues to find the culprit responsible for the mysterious death of ‘Mr Sellit’. We also practised taking fingerprints and learnt more about life in Victorian times. The children behaved brilliantly and we had a fantastic time. 

Super space assembly!

Class 5 did a wonderful assembly all about space and the solar system. They had learned lots of facts about the planets, sang and signed and excellent song and performed some brilliant space poems. It was lovely to see so many parents too!

Amazing solar system models

The children in Class 5 were set a task of making models of the solar system. They have done a great job!

God and The Big Bang Trip

Class 5 took part in an exciting workshop at Leeds Minster recently on the subject of 'God and the Big Bang'. We enjoyed experiencing a range of activities led by Christian scientists, who taught us about rainbows, bubbles, fossils and optical illusions. It was a really interesting and informative day and we helped to generate lots of interesting questions about science and religion.

Stardome Visitor

Class 5 had an exciting visit from Mr Lunn and his Stardome. We really enjoyed this experience and learnt lots of new information about our science topic of Space and our history topic of Ancient Greece. We behaved brilliantly and had a fantastic time!

Y5 visit Ripon

In year 5 we were very excited to visit our pen pals at Ripon Cathedral School recently. We spent the morning completing a photo treasure hunt around the school; taking photographs to depict different emotions and exploring their extensive grounds. We then played a fun and friendly game of rounders. What a lovely day!
