Year 5 Spring 1 Newsletter
As part of their topic this term ‘Time Traveller’, the children in Year 5 invited their grandparents into school to share photos and memories from when they were younger. The children and grandparents had a great afternoon sharing stories.
Comments from the grandparents:
‘I have enjoyed meeting the children, answering their questions and showing all my photos to them. The coffee was good too!’
‘What a wonderful experience talking to such interesting children, I really enjoyed the day.’
‘An excellent project! Glad I could pass on some of the things that happened when I was younger. All the kids were brilliant and asked good questions.’
‘I have enjoyed this afternoon, the children asked some really good questions and the surprise on their faces at some of the answers was priceless (I think they enjoyed it too).’
As part of their theme work ‘Scream Machine’, Year 5 visited Flamingo Land. First of all they took part in a workshop where they learnt about the forces and working mechanisms of some of the rides. After the workshop the children were able to test their nerve by riding some of the adrenaline-fuelled rides or visiting the zoo and conservation area for a quieter option. Everybody had a great time and arrived back exhausted – a great end to their learning about forces and mechanisms.

Through the decades theme day. Can you guess which decade we represent?
The children in Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed their theme work linked to World War One ‘Fallen Fields’. To celebrate the work they have produced they invited parents into school to take a look at some of their hard work including propaganda posters, diary writing, artwork, songs and also home learning.
Take a look at our pictures from outer space during our visit to The National Space Centre.
