Working together, learning together


Year 5 Blog 7.5.21

This week we have really enjoyed playing volleyball matches in PE. We have all noticed an improvement in our skills.

We have also loved writing recounts in English about Philippe Petit and his amazing stunts. Petit walked on a tight rope between the Twin Towers in New York City with no safety equipment. How amazing!


In Science, we have been creating graphs to show how babies grow.


We also loved our DT lesson where we designed our own spaghetti Bolognese recipe.


In RE this week, we have learnt about the story of Noah’s Ark.

Here are some questions you might like to ask your child:


  • What do you know about how babies grow?
  • How did Philippe feel when he completed the challenge?
  • What is your favourite thing about volleyball?
