    A fantastic afternoon's learning and exploring thanks to Dave Carotti, who came in to school and showed the children some amazing and truly awe-inspiring scientific light experiments.  

    The children got to use lasers, prisms, optical cables and polarised filters to help them explore their knowledge and understanding of light. They even got to look at some electronic sunglasses.  Some great science questions were asked and lots of 'what happens if' questions were asked  and explored.  

    Maths homework this week is Mathletics as normal - great to see some creative and interesting ideas for last week's train journey homework.  Well done to all those that managed to complete.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    Dear parents, We have had another busy week. On Monday we welcomed grandparents into class, and were full to over-flowing. It was lovely to see them helping the children with their literacy tasks, based on a stunning book- The Lost Words. On We

    Dear parents,

    We had a wonderful trip to Lime Wood on Tuesday. Luke Holder (the Executive Chef) gave a lot of his time and attention to the children throughout the morning- he was lovely with them. We saw the greenhouses, The Smokery and The Cookery school. The children worked as a production line to make arancini, which they also got to try.

    We have also been investigating ible/able suffixes, rounding in maths to 1,000,000 and creating a physical geography map of South America. The children are also trying to use the oil pastel techniques they have learnt to create a brand new tropical rainforest plant.


    In Science today, we have been investigating reflection and have created periscopes to aid us in our understanding.  The children have enjoyed using and experimenting with torches and mirrors and trying to make their beams of light reflect in different places around the room. 


    Lots of fun was had first thing as we joined Joe Wicks in a live BBC dance to raise support and awareness of Children In Need today.


    Have a lovely weekend,


    Year 5 team.

    Flour Babies

    Sorry about the delay in getting this information out. We are making flour babies and between Wednesday and Friday, I want the children to pretend they have a real baby. They are not allowed to put it down unattended and must mock feed the baby every two hours (parents be as strict or lenient as you want). The aim is to give a realistic experience of the needs of a baby. 

    The equipement needed is:

    Bag of flour

    3 x plastic bags (to contain the flour and catch it if it bursts)

    Tights or old socks (for heads and legs and arms)


     Baby clothes (if you have them, if not Mr W has spare). 

    Here is a link:

  • Homework

    Published 08/05/19, by Sam Wilcox

    For homework, I would like you to write a review for a New Forest attraction. this could be a cafe, strawberry picking - anything that attracts tourists. It is due on Friday the 17th.

    When writing your review, I want you to think about these questions.

    What was it like when you visited? (tell this part like a story, describe what it looks like and the mood of the place).

    Who is it aimed at? (Children, people wanting to relax, thrill seekers).

    Where is it?

    Why should you go to visit (or not)?

    How important is it that you visit (is it amazing)?
