Welcome to Year 5 Class 2018-2019!
Space Centre and Camp
Year 5 had a fantastic trip the National Space Centre in Leicester. They learnt all about rockets and space. After their trip they returned to school where they had their tea. After tea, they had a visit from Warwick University who showed them the moons craters through some large telescopes. They also had a look at the night sky to see if they could recognise some of the constellations. When all of the excitement was over, they 'camped' in the school hall. A big thank you to all of the staff who gave up their time to supervise the children overnight.

Fire Safety Visit
We had a visit from the local Fire Service for a fire safety talk. We listened and learnt about how to react when there is a fire. Mrs McLaren put on a suit that the fire crew wear. It was very hot!
Visit to Compton Verney Art Gallery
We had a great day at Compton Verney Art Gallery. As part of out topic on the Tudors, we looked at some of the portraits. We drew our own portraits and looked at some Tudor costumes. We even got Mrs Hill and Mr Anderson to dress up! We went out to play in the extensive parkland designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown in 1768. It was a fun day.
Gallery from 2017-2018 Year Group
We had a fantastic trip to this outdoor activity centre trying out new and often daring activities. The children really did each other proud encouraging each other to take part.
They came home with a real sense of achievement and some very tired adults!
Year 5 along with the rest of Key Stage 2, enjoyed this themed afternoon during which they became pretend tourists for the afternoon learning the vocabulary of directions and using a map to find a location as well as other activities including restaurant role play.
We looked at Picasso's work for inspiration and re-imagined some of his artwork
adding our own style.
El Salvador Crosses
Year 5 made the vibrant El Salvador Crosses as part of our Cross of Nail Display to celebrate the centenary of The Diocese of Coventry.
Jacob and Sons
Congratulation Year 5 for your amazing production re-working
the classic "Joseph" story.
Jacob had 12 sons and Joseph was his favourite which the brothers did not like
and took their revenge....
Other Key Stage 2 classes joined as the chorus and with the costumes, lights and music
it was a fantastic sell out show.
Well done to everyone who took part.
World Book Day
Year 5 taking part in The Key Stage 2 Carol Concert in St James Church
Tudor Museum Day
Our Tudor Museum Day was a great success with our visitors and the rest of the children in school really enjoying their visit to our museum and watching our dances.
We looked fabulous in costume and Mrs McLaren and Miss King were very proud of our choreography. Everyone thought the dances looked truly authentic to the era.
In the museum we enjoyed sharing some of the interesting and even fascinating facts
we have learnt about the Tudor times during our topic work.
Some of our Tudor Portraits
Christingle Service in Coventry Cathedral
On 5th December we attended The County Church of England Schools'
Christingle Service in Coventry Cathedral.
Some of us had written our own prayers and were extremely brave in standing in front of the large congregation to read them out.
Christmas Art Day
Purple4Polio Crocus Planting
Year 5 really enjoyed taking their part in this Rotary event, part of their

They created this display, visualising themselves achieving great things.
