Our class value is PERSEVERANCE
In year 5 we understand what it is to have perseverance and we try hard to demonstrate this value in our every day lives.
Here in our school:
Let us be peaceful at all times.
Let our rooms be full of happiness
and respect for each other.
Let love be in our hearts
Let us show perseverance when needed
Let us support others in achieving their goals.
Let us remember
In learning together,
We grow together
And succeed together.
Welcome to Year 5

Roald Dahl Day at the King's Leadership Academy October 2019
The Year 5 children had a wonderful day at the Kings Leadership Academy on Wednesday. They attended the annual Roald Dahl day which gave them the opportunity to find out more about some of Roald Dahl’s most iconic characters as well as experience a range of secondary school style lessons.
The children created artwork based on Fantastic Mr Fox, wrote witness statements about Goldilocks from Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes and the highlight of the day was completing science inspired by the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the day and staff from the Kings Leadership Academy commented on the children’s excellent behaviour and enthusiasm shown throughout the day. At the end of the day, a special award was given to Isabella Morris in recognition of the effort she put into each of the three lessons. Her enthusiasm and brilliant contributions to discussions were noticed by everyone. Well done Izzy!

Crucial Crew Event - October 2018
The Year 5 children spent a wonderful morning at the Sefton Crucial Crew event in Formby. Throughout the session they completed a range of workshops lead by Merseyside Transport Police, the RNLI, Active Sefton and Bully Busters.

Coding with Knowsley CLC - November 2018
The children had a lovely morning working with the Knowsley CLC team to explore coding on the ipads. Firstly the children learnt how to decompose the game Mr Jump before going onto use the app Tynker to create their very own car racing game.

NSO Christmas Lecture - December 2018
Year 5 had a wonderful morning listening to Dr Jacklyn Bell talking about the training that astronauts have to go through to be accepted into the space programme. We learnt about the different skills required to become an astronaut, including the ability to speak Russian, and had the opportunity to ask Dr Bell questions about her own astronaut training as well as general questions about space travel and the solar system. Some of the questions our children asked impressed Dr Bell so much that she gave them space mission badges.
