 Spring Term


Year 5 News

After a well-earned rest, the children soon settled back into school and we welcomed Mr Yates back to join the team!  We started our weekly swimming lessons each Tuesday and are lucky enough to have a group of Year 5 children who have qualified for the school swimming squad.  These children have already won the Cluster Gala and are now training towards the District Gala at Daventry.

Choir has also started and we are pleased that so many of the Year 5 children are part of this. They sang beautifully at both the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Easter services, which was their first public appearance! 

Year 5's artistic ability was yet again displayed at The Stantonbury Theatre one February evening, where they performed  some key scenes from some of Shakespeare's most iconic plays. We were so proud of their performances and the effort they put into learning their lines.

Trip to the Space Centre

Early on in the Spring term we enjoyed an ‘out of this world’ trip to the Space Centre in Leicester. The children had a great time learning about our solar system and discovering the wonders of space. After having fun controlling remote drones, riding simulators and checking how heavy a tin of beans feels on different planets, they proved themselves to be excellent future astronauts as they took over the control centre for the NHPS shuttle; working together brilliantly to launch the ship, make contact with an asteroid and return the crew safely back to Earth.

Visit from Catherine Barr

Year 5 were very lucky to have had a visit from Catherine Barr; author of ‘The Story of Life’, ‘The Story of Space’ and many other great children’s books. Her visit was centred around our science topic of space and Catherine engaged the classes in exciting workshops. On the day of Catherine’s visit, her latest book ‘Red Alert’ was published. A book about 15 endangered species from all over the world. We took this opportunity to create some wonderful, informative and rhyming poetry about the animals – Some of which have since been shared by the author herself on Twitter.
