Another super week in Year 5
Enjoy looking through just a couple of the exciting things that have taken place this week. Singing Assembly is always a huge hit and we had some mesmerising maths that, "Blew my maths mind; it makes sense now!" - from Neve.
Today we endured a seven lap race around the field! We worked in small groups and timed each other to see who was the fastest. We all tried our best and took a much deserved rest at the end.
This week, Year 5 children have been introduced to the savage and murderous demon - Grendel - from the oldest epic poem originally told by story tellers from the sixth century.
Here is a little insight into the rich and powerful vocabulary the children have been developing... be prepared for your spine to be tingled!
His reddening face was twisted into a venomous snarl and the vein in his neck pulsed furiously. Ella G
Along with his poisoned heart and murderous soul he raged and appeared as if about to combust into flames of furry. Eva S
Razor sharp teeth lined the creatures monstrous mouth. Ethan G
A face twisted with fury, his eyes menacing slits and a snarl as evil as the devil. Erin H
His fangs, mammoth tusks, glistened from his recent prey's blood. Freya R
Furious as a ginormous werewolf, Grendel barged impatiently through the door leaving broken planks of wood littered around. Alyssa C
Arms like boulders reaching out for human flesh. Kiera B
Teeth bared in the reptilian leer, in two jagged rows of brown rotting teeth. Neve O
His mouth twisted into a menacing scowl as his black blood-shot eyes narrowed into piercing slits. Emily H
The pupils in his blood-shot eyes popped out of their sockets. Joe C
A monstrous demon appeared out of the misty darkness. Phoebe T.
Grendel has the most deadly, menacing fists. Ewan M
Did you know that pulleys have been around for a long time? They were probably used for hauling up water in the Middle East around 1500B.C. Year 5 have been investigating how best to lift an orange - take a peek below!
Year 5 had fun in the forest this week, building towers from natural resources, climbing trees and tyre racing!
In maths, year 5 have used a huge array of skills to solve problems and crack the code to escape from the forest. We tried our hardest to crack the code and used many maths skills, some were: rounding, inverse operation, reading graphs, multiplication and code breaking. The questions were hidden around the forest for us then to answer.

In science today we used scientific skills, such as observations over time, to investigate how the moon’s appearance seems to change over time - this is known as the different phases of the moon. We considered the moon cycle using Oreo biscuits!
