Our day 07.02.18

Today we started our day with English. We were making edits to our first draft of our Coraline setting description. In maths we learnt how to find the area of shapes. This afternoon we had P.E… yes! We played football and basketball with Curtis from Swansea City. It was amazing and fun.

Last week in year 5

Last week was so fun. In assembly PC Norris came to talk about internet safety week. In art, we looked at various propaganda posters from World War 2 and using a paper window we looked at specific parts of the propaganda poster to draw. Then, we finished off our Welsh ‘Gwelais i’ sentence pattern.

In our books, we finished off our topic and in English we wrote the final draft of our discussion text on should football be banned in primary schools.

My favourite part of last week was our two trips. One to Gnoll park and the other to the Liberty stadium in Swansea. We also met Lee Trundle and we had a book called the striker boy by Jonny Zucker.

Funky smells!

Today we started our science investigation…we are finding out whether fruit and vegetables will get lighter or heavier being left out in the open air for a whole week. The only problem is that this afternoon we had to cut up a weird mixture of fifteen different fruit and veg like lemon, swede and grapefruit. yes…fifteen!! Let me just say this…they do not mix well, as you can imagine. We may have a stinky classroom for a week…!!

I’m excited to find out what happens.

Year 6’s

busy day

Today we finished of doing our pitch (presentation). In maths time we did  mega maths. Every Friday we do mega maths where we solve problems. This week’s was linked to measures and recipes. We got into our groups called snakes tigers and monkeys. Snakes did the work in their books first, tigers practiced their times tables and monkeys played maths games. After that we went out to play. When we came back in we read some of our books,  did some Drillio and then we did guided reading. This afternoon we had our Chromebook slot. We made charts/graphs using Excel. Then Miss read our David Walliams book…we’re nearly finished. It’s very funny!

Today we presented and recorded our settings pitch based on Coraline. Three groups didn’t get to do it because we ran out of time but they will do it tomorrow, I’m looking forward to watching them. We also did topic work comparing diets of people living in World War Two and the 1960’s. My favourite bit was when I finished topic and got to design a booklet explaining what children who were evacuated needed to take with them and a rationing booklet. Miss said that some can go up on the wall for display.

Year 5 – Literacy at Gnoll Park

Another exciting day for Year 5.

Using the environment as their stimulus, Year 5 walked to the Gnoll Park to write some poetry with our creative lead practitioner, Francesca.

Children walked to the grounds observing the different objects and animals along the way, and loved having a little run around at the Gnoll House ruins where their imaginations really did run wild!

At the Visitors Centre, the children wrote down words and phrases of what they had seen. They then added adjectives, verbs and adverbs to change each word/phrase into a poem. The children had lots of fun and some lovely examples were shared. Francesca went on to ask children to imagine what was behind the bamboo that they had seen on their travels. WOW!  The children’s ideas were great. From glowing black lanterns to start a quest to magical shrunken worlds full of tiny people.

At the end of the session, Francesca shared one of her favourite poems about a hedgehog that the children acted out.

Another great day Year 5. Well Done!

Year 6’s fun day!

Today we did gymnastics in PE. It was lots of fun and we did lots of different moves e.g: Pike, Straddle and Happy Cat. We all practiced our gym routines and tried out new moves ready for next week! Earlier in the day we did English, recording and practicing our ‘Coraline’ presentations ready for tomorrow. It was lots of fun recording and rehearsing! At break time we ran around and had some fresh air. Then we went inside ready for our maths lesson and did a warm up sheet. We learned about weighing with different types of weights e.g: g, kg, pounds and ounces. At dinner time we filled our self up with lovely foods, we had curry today. Some people had packed lunch. Then we did some Welsh and kept a food diary! It was a fun day!

Year 5 – Super Science

Year 5 – Super Science

Year 5 have been learning about material changes.

Today, children cut fruit and measured the weight of each segment to investigate the water content. After, they made predictions in groups as to what the weight of the fruit will be one week on if we left them on the windowsill.

Will they be lighter or heavier? Can you use scientific terms to say what will happen?


Measuring using decimals
Writing results in a table
What will happen to the fruit?




Year 5 @ Liberty Stadium Swansea

Year 5 Liberty stadium

29th January 2018

What a lovely day Year 5 had today at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium.

First, the children went to a workshop where they had to complete a variety of challenges. Yikes, they didn’t even have a chance to take off their coats, yet they were already underway on a team challenge holding hands trying to move a hula hoop from one side of the line to the other. What a giggle!

The children then completed challenges and fed back to the leaders. The challenges were based on resilience. Some challenges were easy and others difficult. The leaders homed in on how even though life throws obstacles in the way that can make it difficult for us to keep going or brings out emotions that we don’t like, it’s okay. It’s how we overcome them and to keep going is what is most important.

After a great discussion, the children were presented with a signed book from Lee Trundle then given the tour of the stadium. Extremely excited, the children were able to experience the home and away changing rooms (what a difference), become reporters, managers and captains in the press conference room, sit in the players pitch-side seats and finally take a peak at the hospitality suites where they could view the lush pitch being prepped ready for tomorrows game.
