Year 5/6- Mrs Gregory

Welcome to Year 5/6!


Have you seen the Kids’ Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites.

Christmas Party fun!
In Maths we have been trying some different problem solving activities from the nrich website. We enjoyed playing 'Totality' and trying to solve the 'Coded Hundred Square'. Below are some pictures of our learning and the websites if you want to try these activities at home.

On Friday 12th December we held our House Enterprise Christmas Fair. It was a great success and we raised over £400 for Ashgate Hospice. The winning house was Lucas who made a profit of £104.23! 


The children worked extremely hard and we were grateful for the support we received from the Design Technology department at Outwood Academy Newbold. Their stall raised £52.72 which they have kindly donated to Ashgate Hospice. Below are some pictures of the event.

On Friday 5th December Key Stage 2 visited the Central Pentecostal Church for a carol service.
Here are some photographs of our visit to Pinxton Puppets. 
As part of the Our Place in Space topic we made and tested moon buggies. Here are some examples.
As part of our gymnastics topic we have been working with Miss Miles.

This term we have completed an art project called 'People in Action', which linked to our work in PE. Below are some pictures showing our work.

Please come and have a look at the display which is outside the Year 5/6 classrooms.

As part of our science topic on forces, we made catapults out of lollipop sticks and elastic bands.
We concluded the test with a competition to see which child had made the most effective catapult.

Making Smoothies!

As part of our healthy eating week, we discussed the need for eating nutritious food. The children then chose from a variety of fruit to make their own delicious smoothies! Some of us enjoyed them... but some of us didn't!

Hardwick Hall

On Friday 5th June, year 5/6 visited Hardwick Hall as part of our Tudor topic.

The children went on two guided walks; one around the house itself and one around the beautiful gardens. They learnt all about the famous and rich Bess of Hardwick and were able to ask any questions and find out lots of new facts and information!
