Welcome to the Year 5 and 6 Class Pages

Here you will find articles and photographs of all the exciting things we have been doing this year. Don't forget to check out the useful websites linked to our work.


Check out 5D's amazing World Book Day spoons.

Creating our own periscopes was a great way to explore the law of reflection.

We had a great time at our Lego Workshop with Kate and Jess from Diversity Role Models.

In our science unit on light, we had to create a human model to show how we see objects.

A very enjoyable visit from our Patron of Reading Sean Perkins. Here we are helping develop an animal teacher character for his next book.

We made our own electromagnets using iron nails and copper wire, then tested them to see how many paper clips they could pick up.

We are working scientifically to plan and complete a fair test to identify the effect of changing the length of wire in a circuit.

Here we are investigating what happens when you change the number and voltage of cells in a circuit.

Science: Electricity - We were challenged to make a doorbell circuit with a hand-made switch.

Science: Electricity - We enjoyed investigating different examples of static electricity.

Art: Renaissance Architecture and Sculpture - creating clay relief tiles showing aspects of the architecture of Florence Cathedral, in Italy, and its famous dome

Forest School 11 - Here we are using axes to split wood.

Forest School 10 - We really enjoyed learning how to use the bow saws.

Forest School 9 - Team building skills - Tug of War

Forest School 8 - Creating natural images inspired by Rangoli patterns

Music - we enjoyed the warm-up by moving to the pulse of the tune and then went on to identify different beats of the bar. To finish, we explored simple musical notation and composed our own three beat pattern.

Science - We investigated whether exercise has an effect on pulse rates.

Art - we created 'sun' designs to paint onto plaster to experience how it felt to paint onto this surface using acrylic paint. We were extremely pleased with the results.

Forest School 7 - using clay and natural resources to make animal sculptures.

Forest School 6 - we enjoyed creating visual masterpieces using leaves, twigs, petals and berries that we found in the copse. Working together and producing beautiful designs was such fun!
