Welcome to the Year 5 class page. Mrs Harris, Miss Hooper and Mr Hunter will all be working in Year 5 this year.

Take a look at the updates each half term to see what the class have been getting up to.
We are enjoying our French lessons, we have been learning all about the Solar System and have now started to learn about different habitats and the weather in them.
During our active maths lesson this week we have been looking at data on graphs and asking each other questions about the data.
We have all been very lucky to have been given the chance to learn how to ride our bikes properly by Lancashire County Council Sports team. We can now ride our bikes safety on the road.
What a busy but fun day! We started by collecting the willow we needed to construct our Saxon house. Once we had collected enough it was time to start weaving (to build the main structure). After a while we were ready to start mixing mud and straw to fill the gaps, this would help to protect us from the wind and rain. We did get a bit messy but our house looked amazing. It was then then time to start preparing our food. We worked hard chopping carrots, onions and parsnips to boil into a broth with oats, once this was chopped we added some delicious pieces of lamb. After making a fire to cook it on, we all tucked into a delicious bowl of pottage, it was so tasty some of us had seconds!
