Endball tournaments

The sports coaches have recently introduced Endball to the year fives and we enjoyed some inter-house tournaments this week, in preparation for sports day. We look forward to sharing the results of our sports day with you very soon!


In year 5 we have learnt how to input data onto Excel and present it in the form of various graphs. We also learnt how to use the sum function when inputting data and changing figures. We completed come surveys based on tourism in the Forest Of Dean and used Excel to present and evaluate the results.


We have been lucky enough to welcome the wonderful Mrs Pearce into school to do dance with all year groups. Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their time with her and their Greatest Showman routine was AMAZING!!


The job of weeding the very overgrown vegetable gardens was given to Year 5. Along with reception class, they are hoping to plant them up over the summer and grow some veggies to use on our seasonal cooking.

Watercolour painting

Year 5 have been learning how to use watercolours under the expert guidance of Mrs Connor. They are exploring the colour wheel and mixing before building up to a class project! Watch this space for the final piece!

Bike Ability

We were lucky enough to have the Bike Ability instructors join us in school to guide the Year 5s through their Bike Ability course. Great fun was had by all as well as learning how to be safe cyclists on the road! The Bike Ability team were very complimentary about our children's behaviour too!

Virtual Trip To NASA (In our Pjs for National Sleep Day)

Year 5 had their first experience of Now Press Play by going on a virtual trip to NASA. It was a fantastic experience where by they listened and joined in with the experience. We met Neil Armstrong and were stowaways on a space mission- having a near miss with an asteroid on the way back to Earth!


This week we enjoyed the sunshine and went out onto the field to practise our rugby passing skills.



In science we have been investigating water resistance. We designed streamlined boats and tested them. We had some great successes!

STEM Works day

Year 5 were lucky enough to have STEM Works come into school to do a computer control workshop, using Lego robots. 

A great day was had by all!
