Residential

This year we went to Cote Ghyll Mill near Osmotherley. It was an incredible few days with great weather. The children represented the school fantastically and took so much from the trip. Here are some pictures of what made the trip so much fun and made them such a pleasure to take away.

Football

With many of the boys thinking they have a real shot at emulating the success of any Nottingham Forest player, a session was arranged to see if that was the case!

Football
Tennis

A fantastic effort by our future Wimbledon stars, through to the North West finals after winning at Trinity. Thanks to all the parents for their support and the children for playing so well!

Netball

Both classes were fortunate enough to go to Trinity to take part in a local competition against other schools. The children behaved terrifically and were a credit to the school. There certainly are some future stars, given that all three finals were contested by our three teams, with two of them winning and the third being narrowly defeated in the last minute. A huge thank you to the families that were able to support the visit.

Planetarium

To finish our topic about Space, the children were treated to a Planetarium experience. They got to travel through space, discuss constellations and Greek mythology and get an experience for what life is like as an Astrophysicist! A huge thank you to the PTA for their support in booking this experience.

Easter Eggs

As part of our school-wide competition, YR5 rallied to the cause to produce arguably the best eggs made by anyone! Congratulations to everyone who took part and to the YR5 winner, with whom it is rumoured that Thorntons are in discussions regarding using her design for their own eggs!

Military Obstacle Course

On Thursday 13th November both year 5 classes did a military obstacle course in the school field with their buddies. We apologise to parents for the state of PE kits but, as you can see, the children had an incredible time.

Author visit

On Monday 10th November Robert Bullock delivered a workshop with YR5. They discussed some of the important techniques in writing and the process all good writers work through. They finished with writing their own section of the book 'Jacob's War' and acting it out.

WW1 Horsforth Hall visit

During WW1 theme week, YR5 have spent time researching the people from Horsforth who fought and died in the war, and those who were involved like the nurses. The highlight was visiting this gallery, in which the children learned more about local heroes, the influx of Belgium refugees and looked at/handled WW1 memorabilia. They have also experienced what it would have been like for those from Horsforth to have trained to be in the army, including marching, press-ups and crawling under camouflaged netting.

Egypt topic

Throughout our Egypt topic the children were able to take part in a variety of practical activities and learning challenges, including learning about Pharaohs and Gods; Egyptian symbols; uses of the Nile River and making Pharaoh masks and visiting the museum in Leeds.

Buddies

Children took part in a skip, scoot and hoopathon in October to raise money for different children's charities. It was a super event for everyone involved and we got to spend time with our buddies doing various activities.

Ballet

Northern Ballet delivered a workshop to YR5 in November to children that wanted to attend. It was a fantastic event and the children had a lot of fun practising a different sport, in which they worked on common techniques and stretches and were able to produce a small routine by the end. Some children were also selected to attend further sessions. Well done to all the children that were involved and the instructors.

Journey to Jo'Burg January 2014

As part of our writing focus on our Journey to Jo'Burg the children completed a piece of homework in which they depicted the book up to where they have read. These were the best ones as chosen by the class.
