And just like that, we have reached the end of the academic year- and what a year it has been!


We have learnt and experienced so many things- it certainly has been a action-packed, fun-filled year. 


As the children prepare for the next step of their journey at Woodlea, I am sure that you'll join all the staff in Y5 in congratulating everyone on all their hard work they have put in this year. Each and every child has contributed into making the year so fabulous- so thank you everyone!

Our curriculum- Spring

We drew visual representations when ordering fractions on a number line. We really enjoyed being able to see (and solve!) the problem in a visual way. 

Exploring night and day in Science

We used torches and globes to understand why day and night happens. We also learnt about why we have seasons and why some days have more daylight than others. 

Making Anglo-Saxon money containers

As part of our History topic, we designed and made Anglo-Saxon money containers. We have learnt how to use a range of stitches; running stitch, back stitch, over stitch and then a back stitch. We had to design the money container before cutting out the fabric, stitching it together and adding tassles.

It took a while but it was worth it!

Taking our Science learning outside

Visit to The Museum of Liverpool and to the synagogue.

As part of our Geography fieldwork topic, we visited the Museum of Liverpool to learn about the history of Liverpool. We then enjoyed a walk through Liverpool, looking at the different types and buildings and had they had changed over time. We also completed a traffic survey which we will use in our topic lessons. 

We ended our visit of Liverpool with a visit to Princes Synagogue- an absolutely fantastic experience. We learnt about the synagogue, religious services and what life was like for Jewish families. We can’t wait to learn more about the Jewish faith in our RE lessons. 

Bikeability- 16th-17th March 2023

On 16th and 17th March, we participated in a 2 day Bikeability course which was run by South Ribble Council. Over the 2 days we practised checking over our bikes to ensure that they were safe to ride, signalling to indicate turns and correct positioning whilst riding on a public road. The activities taught us how to ride safely whilst cycling on main roads with passing traffic. It was tough but we all showed great perseverance and maturity. 

Military School

This term, we have been working closely with UK Military School focusing on improving our determination, stamina and well-being. The tasks that we have completed so far have put our team-building skills to the test as we had to create a working aqueduct, transporting luggage across water without dropping it. 

Anglo-Saxon Enrichment Day

Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their Anglo-Saxon Enrichment Day. They experienced designing and making a brooch or belt for their clothing, eating around a campfire, preparing a meal of Pottage which was then cooked on the fire and recreating Sutton Hoo, all whilst dressed as Anglo-Saxons! We also enjoyed a little bit of Anglo-Saxon music whilst we carried out these activities. 

Endangered Animal Fundraiser
