Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 is an exciting year at St Peter’s. This year the children take on additional responsibilities as play leaders supporting our younger infant children at lunchtime. We enjoy a great residential at Robinwood building our relationships and pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone in amazing challenges. We take the next step in our academic work developing our knowledge and understanding across a wide range of subjects in exciting ways and making links through all that we do.

Computational thinking. We have been investigating how computers think through sorting activities using playing cards and images of people.

Investigating friction. As part of our forces topic in science we have designed an investigation to identify whose shoes have the grips that provide the most friction in our current icy weather.

Jodrell Bank. As part of our science topic on the solar system we visited Jodrell Bank.
