Summer 2022

Hooke Court Residential 2022

Year 5 have had a fantastic time away (3 days, 2 nights) at Hooke Court as part of their Tudor topic.

The children had the opportunity to take part in an array of activities, from Tudor boat building to cooking! Tuesday was our dressing up day, which ended with a Tudor Banquet!

We won’t give away all of our experiences, as we don’t want to spoil it for future Year Groups!

Thank you to the children for their fantastic behaviour and participation – Hooke Court staff commented that they were a credit to the school.

Finally, thank you to the staff who volunteered their time to enable the trip to take place.

Autumn 2021

Live Science: Space

Year 5 and Year 6 children joined in with a Live event, hosted by the BBC. The theme was Space – Presenter Grace Webb was joined by scientist Greg Foot for an epic space experiment, where we discovered how the moon got its craters by creating a miniature comet in the studio. We also learned about how space tech influences our lives every single day – from watching tv to crossing the road. We even got to hear Professor Brian Cox speaking about space!

Autumn Treasures

In Forest School, Year 5 have been on an ‘Autumn Treasures’ scavenger hunt!

Forces in Science

We have been looking at how the force of friction affects movement on different surfaces. We investigated how much force was required to start a shoe moving across different surfaces when it was pulled.

Mayan Masks

In art, Year 5 have been creating Mayan Masks.

Pen Licences

Well done to 11 children in 5H, who have received their Year 5 Pen Licence. The children have worked very hard to achieve this! Keep up the excellent handwriting!

Feeling a sense of achievement
Perseverance pays off!

Forest School

Year 5 have had a brilliant first week of Forest School! Check out the photos:
