Autumn One

Well-Being Day

Science - Investigating Forces

We have been investigating different forces in Science. We looked at air resistance. gravity and water resistance. To investigate water resistance, we built our own balloon boats.  

Cityscape Artwork

We created 3D cityscape artwork inspired by Charles Fazzino. We looked at examples of his cityscape pop art and then used it as inspiration to create our own.

Football and Netball

During PE, we have been learning about football and netball. We have focused on the skills needed in each sport as well as learning the rules of the games in order to take part in matches. 


Mr Richardson's class (5x), have been taking part in WOPPS. We have all been given a musical instrument to learn. We are learning to play the flute, the saxophone or the clarinet. 

Summer Term

Art - Keith Melling


This term we have been studying a local artist - Keith Melling.  He is based in Lancashire and mainly creates landscape pictures of Pendle Hill, Cumbria, the Yorkshire Dales and the surrounding areas.  We created our own landscapes of local places, inspired by his work.

Edge Hill Visit


Year 5 visited Edge Hill University to get a feel for university life and to inspire us to think about what we want to do in the future.  We enjoyed the Forest School activities, Dance training and had Chinese lessons!  We really liked the contrast between buildings on campus and it was cool that they had their own shops and restaurants!
