Y5 visit to Warwick Castle 11th July 2018
To bring our topic ‘The Medieval Times’ to a close, we went on a trip to Warwick Castle. It was scorching hot, but there was lots to see and do. Most of us managed to climb up the tower built in 1395, which consisted of over 500 steps! We watched great shows for the Trebuchet and Birds of Prey, and walked inside the Great Hall. All our work this term paid off, as the children could identify lots of features of castles and how people would have lived in the medieval times. We had a fantastic day and got back to school tired but happy.

Thanks to all those parents who came to witness our Year 5 show and tell session.
We thought your home learning projects on the Medieval Times were outstanding.
Many thanks to all parents and families who helped their child to create their masterpieces.

Year 5 have been working hard on the Darlaston Community Allotments. New photos will be added weekly to this site
Here are some photos of the children clearing weeds, throwing seed bombs, and planting our growing sunflowers in the Forest Area at school.
We are really enjoying our time on the allotments, and are learning lots about how to grow and look after vegetables and plants.
British Science Week and Family Homework project ‘Show and Tell’ session
On Friday 23rd March, Year 5 parents were invited to our British Science Week and Family Homework Project ‘Show and Tell’ session. We were very excited to see so many parents turn up to spend some time with their children. Parents were able to look around the different homework projects the class had completed, and look at the work from British Science Week on Cloning. The parents commented on how impressed they were by the high quality of work they could see in the books and around the classrooms, as well as the creativity the families had shown in creating their projects.
The responses we had from parents about being invited into school was very positive, and the children all loved having them join us to showcase theirs and their parents’ talents.
Many thanks to those parents who managed to join us. Look out for more opportunities to come into school and spend time with your child in the near future.

World Book Day - March 2018
We took part in World Book Day and read the story of Charlie Small and Pirate Galleon. This was a book about a boy who is kidnapped by vicious lady pirates. We all had a wonderful day walking the plank, making pirate hats, making pirate puppets and making pirate passports.
Have a look at our photos and see if you can spot your own terrible pirate!!!!
