Welcome to Year 5

In Year 5, all of our classes are named after JK Rowling’s Harry Potter characters. Miss Cardwell’s class is Dobby (5DB), Mrs Mason’s class is Hedwig (5HW) and Mr Elyard and Mrs Freeman’s class is Dumbledore (5DD). We also have Mrs Kiloh-Munns, Mrs Javed, Mrs Calmic and Mrs Manning working in our year group to help support our learning.

Our blog will become a digital scrap book of our time in school so make sure that you keep checking it.

Y5 had a visit from Charlotte from the interactive museum at Silverstone. We learnt about the history of the track, and looked at and compared some historical photographs of drivers and cars. We also looked at some tyres, (one of which was used by Lewis Hamilton to drive to the grid in Abu Dhabi) race suits, and then look at Carbon Fibre and Kevlar components. We had a brilliant, scientific morning.


This week, some of the children learnt about Gravity and Momentum by making ‘Desk Rollercoasters’ an activity first shared on ‘Let’s Go Live’ during Lockdown 1 in 2020. We designed and made tracks for our coaster cars (Table Tennis balls) to travel down and had to compromise, discuss and adjust our tracks accordingly. We had a brilliant time with some amazing coasters.
