Welcome to Year 5!

Hello and welcome to Year 5!!

We hope you have all been enjoying the first few days of term - we have both really enjoyed getting to know you! Information for parents will be coming out in the half term letter, but for your information our PE days are Monday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor).

We have started this term by looking at space, and we found out just how big the Solar System really is!

Mr Ross & Mr Pavey



NB - there is one tiny mistake on the knowledge organisers that were sent home (sorry!)! They should read that Copernicus was actually a Polish astronomer, not an Italian one!

Nature Art!

Poplar class spent the afternoon looking at the work of Andy Goldsworthy, an artist who creates sculptures using only natural items such as leaves, rocks and twigs. They then spent the rest of the afternoon foraging around the fields looking for things to use - here are the results!
