The children have worked really hard on their Monsterology unit of work, combining research, writing, computing and art skills. The Y5 parents were invited in to share all the amazing work the children produced! The written presentation shows how well they have applied their new handwriting skills - there were lots of comments from parents about how impressed they were!

Year 5 Blog - Spring term 2024

Welcome to our Spring blog. 


Children in Y5 have been working hard to design their own dragon eye sculptures in our latest art topic. Children have practised their drawing skills and have had a chance to develop their skills using clay. IMG 1235

Road Safety

On the 30th January, children in Y5 were treated to a visit from Reynold's Catering to learn about road safety and have the opportunity to sit inside one of Reynold's lorries. Children were very excited to get a chance to beep the horn and learn about the safety features of a lorry and what it would be like to drive one. 

Children also learned the importance of speed limits and how this can affect the stopping distance of vehicles and where are the safest places to cross the road. 

Y5 pupils look forward to completing activities for Children's Mental Health Week on Thursday 8th February. 

Children's Mental Health Week

Children enjoyed the Mental Health workshop on Thursday 8th February. Children took part in drama activities where they acted out different emotions and then created freeze frames of how they would respond in certain situations. 


Children have learned how to program a micro controller this half term using Crumble kit software and hardware. This has given them great opportunities to investigate how programming works and develop their problem solving skills.


This week, children in Year 5 completed their additive sculpture art project by creating their final dragon eye sculptures using air dry clay. The children designed their sculptures in their sketch books the previous week and used tools and toothpicks to carve patterns into the clay. 

All of the Y5 teachers are incredibly impressed and proud of the sculptures the children have created. Well done Pegasus and Centaur classes !
