Welcome to Year 5!
This term we will be learning all about the Stone Age.
Hadleigh Country Park Trip.
Wow! What an amazing trip, the children really impressed the staff at Hadleigh and they learnt so much.
This week we had lots of fun organising our Stone Age presentations with year 6.
This week we have been learning about the importance of Skara Brae. Watch a clip of an interview!
This week we modified paper parachutes to increase air resistance.
Grammar School Presentation
On Tuesday 7th March an Assistant Headteacher, from Westcliff High School for Boys, gave a presentation on entry to Grammar School. This was very informative, discussing some of the myths about Grammar Schools, looking at examples of the 11+ test and how to prepare for it. The presentation contains the main points from the meeting and a number of links which might be useful. Mr Curtis attended the presentation and would be happy to discuss this if you want further information.
We have now begun our Times Table Challenge! Everyone has begun on Bronze to show they know all of their tables up to 12x12. Here is the Bronze test to practice.
