Year 5



This week...


  • 5CS Engineering Workshop - Wednesday 22 March. The children will be designing rollercoasters and, ultimately, building them using scrap materials. We want the children to consider the differences in the materials they use and how it will affect their rollercoaster, so it would be good to have a nice mix. Please can your child bring in some of the following materials by Tuesday 21 March: toilet roll and kitchen roll tubes, cardboard (such as cereal boxes and thicker cardboard from things like Amazon parcels), plastic bottles and milk cartons would all be ideal, as they should be easier to piece together into a structure.


  • THE READ-A-NATOR. When your child has read at home, simply hit the button and click your child's class to add a point to their class tally. The class with the most points at the end of the term will get one hour on a bouncy castle in the Big Hall!

  • For more bouncy fun, make sure to log on to TimesTable Rockstars because the class with the most points this term will also win an hour on the bouncy castle, and the top three times-tablers overall will each get a 30-minute bounce with a friend!
