- About Us
This week Year 5 have been working on comparing and ordering fractions as well as finding equivalent fractions. They have worked hard using cubes and bar model to show their understanding.
Year 5 are also learning how to play the guitar this term! They have really impressed us by playing a Justin Bieber song from scratch. If you have a guitar at home, we are sure they will show you what they have learnt.
Miss Golightly's fabulous class have been chosen to take part in our Regional Shakespeare Festival which will be held at King James 1 Academy on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th March 2018. Our children will be performing their scenes on the Tuesday at 1pm.
The festival is led by Crook Primary School, and a further ten schools will be joining us to perform William Shakespeare's tragedy, 'Macbeth.' All the teachers have been trained by The Royal Shakespeare Company in preparation for this annual event.
The children are working hard in rehearsals, exploring characters, plot lines and enjoying Shakespeare's wonderful language. Their performance requires precision timing and using stage space to its maximum effect, both very difficult skills to master, but they are giving 100% effort and concentration. Well done 5G.
Parents will be allocated two tickets per child free of charge and we hope you can join us for this fabulous celebration of Shakespeare.
Some of Miss Golightly's and Miss Oxley's children have been chosen to meet with the actors and rehearse with them so they can contribute to the performances of Julius Caesar on Wednesday 28th February. We can't wait to see what they come up with and we know they'll represent Year 5 and our school really well. Bravo Year 5!
Look out London Fashion Week! Today, the Year 5 children have held an amazing fashion show to exhibit their t-shirt designs.
The confident children strutted their stuff down the catwalk whilst the school watched. There were so many different colours, designs and techniques on display.
After the show, Year 5 shared their design process with the other children. They hope they can inspire you to be creative with your clothing. Well done Year 5!
We're all very excited that The Royal Shakespeare Company are visiting us again to give us a community performance of 'Julius Caesar,' by William Shakespeare. Following their huge success when they brought us, 'The Famous Victories of Henry V,' they've chosen the bloodthirsty tale of Caesar who was assassinated by his friends, starting a war between the generals of Rome. It promises to be even better than their last performance and is 90 minutes of pure entertainment.
This performance is packed with action, lots of sword fighting and daggers drawn. It's especially adapted for families and is suitable for children over the age of 7 years. If your children are not old enough to attend, come by yourselves and bring your friends.There'll be plenty of audience participation as you cheer for Caesar and Brutus. Which side will you be on?
Tickets are available from Mrs. Gentles or from the office at Crook Primary School, priced at £5 each. Children must be accompanied by an adult. There are a small number of tickets left so don't delay. Join us at 6pm on Wednesday 28th February in our main hall and meet the actors before the play starts. We guarantee you will be more entertained by than anything on TV that night!
Today Year 5 and 6 were visited by a construction company; GallifordTry- for an assembly on the dangers of building-sites. We spoke about how to look out for danger signs and the importance of following them!
This half term Year 5 are learning about fashion throughout history. We began our topic discussing our favourite clothes and sharing the scrap books some of the children had made over the Christmas holidays. We were so impressed with them!
Our first practical activity involved creating our own design onto a piece of fabric using dye. The children had some very creative ideas!
We can't wait to try different techniques and create a final product. We will post some pictures to show you what we make.
