Science Week


This week has been VERY exciting as we have all been scientists! On Monday Miss Miller showed us lots of fascinating experiments during assembly. We were then giving a box of 'stuff' and had to come up with our scientific questions and experiments. It was very messy, but very exciting! On Tuesday, we had a session with Mad Science, who did a workshop with us all about Space. Kinetic Kate was very impressed with all of our knowledge on Space! On Wednesday, we got to choose from two different investigations - space nappies and squashed tomatoes. We had to make a basket that could transport tomatoes at least 1m from the height of a table to the floor, or create a nappy that would hold enough liquid for an astronaut! On Thursday, we drew what we thought a scientist might look like and then researched lots of different famous female scientists. We were incredibly interested by some of the amazing work carried out by these women!


Finally, we ended the week with a Science Fair. It was amazing to see such a brilliant turn out! So a huge thank you to all the parents that attended - we hope you enjoyed it.

Trip to Bramhall Hall


In our Topic lessons, this term, we have been looking at the Tudors and the Stuarts. Today we got to go on an exciting school trip to Bramhall Hall, in Stockport. We were able to impress the staff with all of our amazing knowledge about the Tudors! We took part in lots of exciting activities such as, making nose gays, writing our names in Tudor handwriting, practising a Tudor dance, making our own wattle and daub and picking out rich foods and poor foods, to name but a few. Take a look at the slideshow to see what fun we got up to!


All of the children were a credit to Stamford Park Junior school - well done Year 5!

World Book Day



This week we have been celebrating and engaging in lots of different activities for World Book Day. Each teacher chose a book they would base 5 lessons on and the children decided which teacher they would like to work with for their English lessons.


The children all came dressed up as a character of their choice - based on a book. They looked fabulous! We had a World Book Day parade (pictures below) to show off the efforts made by all children (and parents)! We also had an illustrator join us on Thursday. He hosted a brilliant assembly in the morning and did a workshop with the children throughout the day where they came up with their own setting descriptions.


All children have been very engaged all week - roll on next year's World Book Day!

Today we put our artistic skills to the test and painted our own Tudor portraits! We had numerous monarchs to choose from including - Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Edward VI and Henry Tudor. We used dark colours, just as painters would have done during the Tudor period.

Maths Day

Today, the whole school took part in Maths Day. All lessons were linked to maths and we even managed to include maths in our English lesson. 

During English, we wrote poems and raps about maths and the different calculation methods. We then investigated whether taller people can run faster than shorter people, based on a clip of Usain Bolt running the 100m, during our maths lesson. The data we collected will be turned into a scatter graph to see whether we can prove this hypothesis true or false.

In the afternoon, we used Scratch to code different tessallations and make repeated patterns. 

The pictures below show of the work we carried out today. 

The class has a great time and worked really well together to create some great pieces of work.

Our very own solar systems! Today in 5LC, we learnt about the size of the planets in our solar system. We then worked in pairs to create our own model using plasticine. Miss Quinn (our student teacher) was very impressed with the work we produced!

Science - Desiging the Perfect Parachute 

Today, 5LC investigated the effects of air resistance by designing a new parachute. They had lots of great ideas and experimented with lots of different shapes and sizes. We discovered that the greater the surface area of the parachute the better it was at falling slowly. 

Friday 8th September


As part of year 5 computing, the class got to explore and use semaphores. They used the flags to send messages to their partner. Some of the signals were trickier than others but the class worked really well at perfecting the signs.
