Year 5

Teacher – Mr Gould (Deputy Head)

TA – Mrs Armstrong

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.

Big Arts’ Week. We enjoyed dressing up for our arts’ week. Our theme this year was the sea.

Robotics. We’ve been looking at gears and building robots as part of our design technology. Once we’d built them we programmed them using control programming as part of our computing topic.

Computing with microbits. We have been programming microbits using if statements, random functions and variables to create an electronic ‘rock, paper, scissors’ game. We then had fun playing against each other.

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.
