Paper Weaving

Maple Class had a Scottish theme to their day on Friday 30th November as it was St Andrew’s Day. A reading activity enabled the children to learn more about the Patron Saint of Scotland, adding to information they had already heard in their Year 5 assembly earlier in the week.

In the afternoon, the children had a chance to create some Tartan-inspired designs by weaving coloured paper strips to make these attractive and vibrant patches.

It was pleasing to see the children working together in pairs and really co-operating well to choose their colour scheme and then carefully weave the paper strips together.


National Space Centre

All 4 of the Year 5 classes took a trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester last week!
It was a day packed with lots of fun, facts, interactive displays and a wonderful planetarium show to end the day! Here are some photo’s to highlight

just how amazing it was!

Homework Heroes

In Year 5, we challenged our pupils to create something based on everything we had learned so far about Space  – whether it be a poster, a piece of art, a fact file or even a model. Here are some of the fantastic pieces of homework that we thought were ‘out of this world’ !
