Year 5 are currently taking part in Bikebaility- a cycling proficiency programme designed to help children ride safely on our roads. Here they are gearing up for their Level One assessment. If they are lucky enough to pass they will be venturing onto our local roads next.

We were lucky enough to have to have Vinnie, a qualified cricket coach, deliver a FREE workshop this morning. Just look at that blue sky....perfect cricketing weather!!


MAD Science Workshop!

Look at all the fun we have had with our MAD Scientist Neutron Naomi! Our experiments involved black bin liners, bubbles, straws, flour, golf balls and all sorts! We LOVED it (other than the mess we had to clear up afterwards, haha!) 


MAD Science! 

Today we had a brilliant MAD Science Assembly! The special scientists proved to be so clever with their experiments! Luckily some of Year 5 were chosen to be volunteers.

5 Fabulous Reasons to Read

WOW, wow, wow! I have been so impressed with all of your AMAZING posters that you made for your homework! We all really enjoyed sharing our '5 Fabulous Reasons to Read', some of my favourites were 'It relaxes me before bed', 'You can share it with friends and family' and 'You can get lost in a book' - I definitely agree with this one! 



KS2 Bakeathon- Easter Theme

Wow, what wonderful baking creations Year 5! You have been busy this weekend! Thank you for all your donations towards the KS2 Bakeathon, hopefully we will have raised a lot of money for school and enjoyed tasting the yummy buns at the same time! Well done everyone.


Refereeing Input

We were lucky enough to have a visit from a professional referee today, Darren England. We had lots of fun exploring the equipment used by match officials and even had chance to design some improved products of our own. We loved the session and would like to say a HUGE thank you to Darren...especially as he gave us some of our own Vanishing Spray to use! If you would like to find out more about this programme, please have a look on Twitter. The Professional Game Match Officials Ltd (PGMOL) don't have a page of their own so please search the Hashtag #RefsInSchools

Book Buddies

Today we paired up with FS2 and Year 2 to read to a 'buddy'. We really enjoyed reading to the younger children! Please look on FS2's and Year 2's class pages to see more photographs of us sharing our reading! 

Multicultural Day 

We had a wonderful time celebrating Multicultural Day! We discovered so much about our chosen country, Brazil. Everyone looked fantastic in green, blue and yellow!

Barnsley Tennis Club

This afternoon we had the opportunity to work with a tennis coach from Barnsley Tennis Club. We learnt so many skills such as serving, returning and some of us even managed to have a rally with the coach! How lucky are we?


Super Science

 Our Science topic for this term is 'Living things and their habitats'. We had great fun dissecting flowers to look more closely at the male and female parts. This helped us to understand pollination and fertilisation, although the pollen did make us sneeze a little!
