What have we been up to?


Year 5 had a fantastic time at Letchworth Golf Club, exploring the courses and playing on the par 3 course. Despite the hot weather, they had a blast, and we made sure they stayed safe. More adventures to come!



Our Year 5 students had a blast at the STEM Discovery Centre! They made moon phase boxes, programmed Lego Mars rovers and listened to captivating stories about the stars. 



Year 5 travelled back in time to the Victorian era. They experienced what a school day would be like including some very strict Victorian teachers. They got to write using chalk, created their own Victorian toy and made a pomander. It was a great day! What was their favourite part?



Year 5 had a great first week back! They jumped into new topics with excitement, putting in great effort and behaving well. They loved learning about spreadsheets; identifying cells and how to change their colour and using this knowledge to make cool pixel art. 



This half term, year 5 have been learning about Easter in RE. To help the children with their learning, we visited St Paul’s church and took part in different activities such as tasting some bread and wine (grape juice) and taking part in a trial. Which activity was your child’s favourite?



Year 5 had lots of fun in their Science lesson this week with skittles. They placed the skittle in water to see the reaction. They noticed that the colour came off the skittle and went into the water turning the water rainbow coloured. This was a great example of an irreversible change.


Year 5 had a fun VR workshop today, tying into our geography topic on 'Going Green'. They learned about Earth's problems and how to help. What was your child's favourite part?
