Termly Curriculum Letters
Year 5 2019
The Year 5 & 6 athletics teams took part in the borough athletics tournament last week. 34 schools competed to become borough champions. The children had to take part in sprinting, throwing, jumping and long distance events. We had some fantastic individual performances and at the end of the day, the Year 5 team finished in 8th place overall. Well done everyone!
School Trip - Fairlop Waters
Year 5 enjoyed a memorable day at Fairlop Waters on Friday. We spent the morning playing in the the adventure playground, making good use of all the climbing equipment, and following our lunch had a great afternoon sailing on the lake. Six of the children sailed solo, and the others paired up in the two man boats.
They all had a great time, even those that were a bit nervous! A great day, and the rain stayed away until home time!
Year 5 Assembly: Bake-It
Today Year 5 had their class assembly about bread and linked it to The Last Supper. They all did so amazing, we are very proud of the confident children they have become. Well done Mrs Hatton and Year 5!
Year 5 and 6 performed their end of term dance to some of the teachers after school. They did a fantastic job, we were all so impressed with how much they learned in such a short space of time.

Young Shakespeare: Hamlet
The juniors got to watch a wonderful performance of Hamlet. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learned so much from it. They have already been asking what next years performance will be.
Year 5 were invited to watch a performance of Hairspray at All Saints Catholic School. They really enjoyed the performance and had to opportunity to see some of our past students in the show. We were very grateful to have been asked to attend. It has inspired some of our children to get into drama and performing arts.
IPC Space Explorers
Year 5 have been learning about space and recently had their whole school assembly. They shared all that they learned and exciting lessons that they had. They made rockets and tried to make them fly using a balloon and a straw, made astronaut helmets out of paper mache, watched videos about the daily lives of astronauts in space, learned all about the planets in our solar system and so much more.
Year 5 had to both teach and learn a skill to/ from their peer. Some children found it easier to be the teacher rather than being the learner. We discovered that we all have different learning styles and what works for one child to learn better may not work for another child.
World Book Day
Year 5 had so much fun today! In the morning the children read a story to the Nursery children, then Mrs Healy read a story to them. I read a story called Tiddler that I had previously shared with the children when I taught them in Year 1. In the afternoon we did our Daily Mile in our costumes and then made bookmarks.
