Year 5 have been learning all about gravity today and are looking forward to learning even more about space tomorrow at The Space Centre. We are leaving at 9.00 and should be back at school by 5.30 traffic permitting). All children need to be in school uniform and have a packed lunch in a bag.
In Year 5 this term, we have been learning about Words of Wisdom from Christianity, Sikhism and Islam. We have been reflecting on what we can learn from various aspects of these three religions and some of our work is on display in our classrooms.

Year 5 have started their new unit of Stargazers. They were visited by Astronauts Sadler and Berkshire who had lost an expensive piece of equipment on a planet.
