Science with Mr Russell – September 2016

We had a very enjoyable session with Mr Russell (from Cartmel Priory School) in which we looked at adaptations including our thumb.  We had fun completing the different activities and are looking forward to our next lesson with Mr Russell!

Thursday 2nd February 2017-  World Book Day

Year 5 had lots of book related fun today, we played ‘Guess the Character’ and wrote 100 word stories (which is much harder than it seems). Also, they looked amazing dressed up!




Wednesday 15th March- Science: Life Cycles

We have been looking at the life cycles of 6 different animals: Mammals, Fish, Reptiles, Amphibians, Insects and Birds.

We have also had some class pets arrive- Bob, Fred, Coco, Fuzz and Creepy- our caterpillars that have doubled in size in the past two weeks, soon they will be forming cocoons and when they hatch they will be….BUTTERFLIES! We are hoping to release them into our outdoor area!

Friday 9th June 2017- Rubbish Rebels

Year 5 enjoyed a visit from Frankie who came in to do a workshop all about Rubbish! We learned a lot about how we can use the three R’s to reduce waste, correctly recycle and reuse. The best part was when we had the opportunity to make our own Rubbish Rebels from our recycled materials!
