Recently, Year 5 visited Preston park. Year 5 combined their Victorian topic work with the Christmas period to examine what a Victorian Christmas might look like.
The children had a wonderful time. Firstly, they took part in a Christmas workshop where they created crackers, calendars and Christmas cards. Amazingly, children got to visit a Victorian Police station. Luckily, all staff and children behaved, so no arrests had to be made!
The fun wasn't finished there; the children then got to see the exhibits in the museum! After all that excitement it was time to get back on the bus and return to School.

Children are required to bring reading books into school every day and regularly change them. We would appreciate your support in signing your child’s reading diary on a regular basis.
In Year 5 we expect the children to try their best in everything they do. In return, they will be supported and challenged to achieve their potential.
Every Monday your children will be issued with their spelling homework and it should be returned on a Friday when they are tested. The words will be linked to the spelling learning objective being taught that week. Below are links to your child's spellings should they not make it home on a Monday
The word-list for years 5 and 6 is statutory. The lists are a mixture of words pupils frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell. Some of the listed words may be thought of as quite challenging, but the 100 words in each list can easily be taught within the four years of key stage 2 alongside other words that teachers consider appropriate.
We enjoyed exploring and tasting 'Fruits of the Rainforest'
We visited the 'Beacon of Light' in Sunderland where we had an interesting day finding out all about careers in Engineering.
At the Winter Gardens, in Sunderland, we became 'Rainforest Explorers' and ended the day having fun in Mowbray Park.
