SwimInspire with Birmingham Uni

Year 4 and Year 5 were joined for the afternoon by members of the University of Birmingham's elite swim squad. They taught us about swimming and also gave us more idea of what life at university is like. Check out the pictures of a very fun and interesting afternoon!

Year 5 V.E. Day party

Thursday 7th December Year 5 celebrated the end of their topic. War has now ended !! We spent the morning cooking cookies using our knowledge of rationing. We also used our knowledge of measurement to create our very own gas mask boxes. Our challenge was to keep them safe and wear them all day. Next it was party time. We set up the hall with board games, cards and children's work.  Finally our wonderful parents came to see all the hard work we have completed. Year 5 have really enjoyed this topic and have produced some excellent work.

Parachute Fun

Year 5 have had a busy afternoon making parachutes.  Yes - Parachutes!  We have been learning abour air resistance for our Science Topic and finding out lots of facts about forces and friction.  The parachutes we are making also links in with our History topic on WW2 - parachutes were used by our forces during the D-Day landings.

Join us here again on V.E Day to see our finished parachutes.  Will we all fly high....?
