Welcome to the Y5 Class Page
Our teacher this year is Mrs. Size and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Kelly.
We are a class of 17 fantastic boys and girls.
We have PE on a Tuesday and Friday.
Homework will be sent home on Friday and will need to be returned by Wednesday the following week.
Keep checking back for pictures and videos of what we have been up to in school!
The Pendle Witches
In 1612 a famous trial took place. The children have acted out that trial today. They gave evidence to the court to see whether or not they were guilty of witchcraft.
Family Fun afternoon
Year 5 and 6 had an afternoon with their parents taking part in fun activities.
Today we had visitors in school helping our pupils develop a range of skills for working and life. They completed a series of tasks in groups of 6. The children worked extremely well together, mixing with children from different classes. Ask the children about the different tasks they completed, i'm sure they will enjoy telling you all about it.
The Highway Man
For the past few weeks Year 5 have been learning about the Highway man. This is them acting different parts of the peom out.
Messy Morning Y5
Family members came in to help the Year 5 children build settlements. The finishing products were fantastic! Thank you to everyone.
The children in Year 5 have been working about internet safety, watch our news report to find out more.
Year 5 and 6 Maths breakfast morning
Thank you to everyone who attended our Maths morning on Friday, the children had a great time.
Year 5 book club
We are currently reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Last night with some very unusual ingredients, Sean's wand and a touch of Hogwarts magic we made some very interesting potions.
Gateacre School STEM project
On Friday afternoon we attended a workshop at Gateacre School. With the help of Gateacre students, Norman Pannell pupils had to make a parachute using a variety of different materials to protect an egg when being thrown from 3 different heights.
There was only one parachute which survived 3 drops (from 3 different floors in Gateacre School). The Reindeer team won! Well done!
Year 5 wanted to complete the Mannequin challenge during a PE lesson, since they've worked so hard this week we decided to give it go.
Teddy bear hospital
We spent the afternoon learning about basic life support and what to do in an emergency using teddies. The children really enjoyed the session.
