Year 5 Welcome Meeting Presentation

Cake Sale


We are asking children in Year 5 to bring in homemade cakes/sweets /biscuits  on Monday 25th September to sell to the rest of the school at morning break.  This will be the first event in our week of raising money for McMillan Cancer Support.  If each child could also bring a small float of change (about £1) this makes the selling of the cakes simpler.  


It is a good idea to bring in some pocket money on Monday and Wednesday (Year 6's Cake Sale) as well in order to buy some of the cakes and treats on sale. Happy baking!


Later in the term we are going to be making our own volcanoes. To do this we are asking the children to bring in an empty 500ml bottle, a cereal box and as much newspaper as you can spare!


Many thanks in advance,


The Year 5 Team

Exploding Earth Wow Day!

We have had a great start to the Autumn Term with our 'Exploding Earth' Wow Day. We learnt what to in an earthquake and we built structures out of marshmallows and cocktail sticks and tested them on an 'earthquake' jelly base to see if they survived. Finally, we also created volcano artwork using tissue paper. Pictures and videos will be added soon, so keep checking back!
