On Tuesday, Year 5 visited Pizza Express where we made delicious margarita pizzas.
We began by preparing our dough base. We had to flatten out the mixture, and ensure that it had very little flour left on it. We found out that flipping the pizza was the best way to get rid of the flour!
After this, we added the special tomato sauce and some delicious cheese before it went into the oven.
Thank you for having us Pizza Express! We had a wonderful visit! Comment below to share what your favourite part of the trip was.
In Year 5, we have been visiting the library, and browsing the wide selection of books that they have there. It has been wonderful to see the children recommending books to their peers, and sharing their enthusiasm for new stories which they have discovered. Please keep it up!

This week in Year 5, we have been really busy creating our Victorian Horse and Carts. They involved a lot of tricky steps! If you want to know how to create them yourself, then keep your eyes peeled on our blog, as we will be posting instructions soon!

This half term, we have been looking at Victorian pottery. Using Victorian designs as inspiration, we created our own piece of pottery using clay. Once they had dried, we then painted them using repeating patterns.
Beautiful creations – well done Year 5.

Today, Year 5 went to the CLC where we began by learning about Raspberry Pi. We were then given several challenges to complete using Python.
Then… we hacked into Minecraft and even created our own rainbow roads!
Please comment below to let me know what your favourite part of the trip was? Or, something that you learnt as a result of this trip.
This week in Year 5, we have been editing and improving stories which we wrote based upon Oliver Twist.
All of the children put a tremendous amount of effort into writing their stories and I hope they feel extremely proud of themselves for the end result – well done Year 5!

This week in Year 5, we have learning about what life was like for a Victorian child. We discussed working conditions in the coal mines, within factories and mills, out in the countryside, and inside manor houses as domestic servants.
Thankfully, we also learnt about the people who campaigned for the rights for children to have an education. We imagined we were Lord Shaftsbury and Dr Barnado, and wrote compelling speeches to urge other citizens to vote for a change, and thus ensuring a more educated and healthier future generation.
Well done Year 5! Excellent speeches! Bravo!
This week in Year 5, we have been reading Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. We began by writing some setting descriptions about what it would be like to live in a workhouse.
We then discussed whether we would prefer to become an undertaker or a chimney sweep in Victorian Britain. Wonderful writing year 5!

This week, Year 5 received a visit from the CLC. Rowan from the CLC, challenged us to create shapes using scratch. We had to use our knowledge of angles and direction. Some of the pictures we produced were extremely colourful!
Next, we were given some coding and we had to work out what design that code produced. Here’s what we found out:
Our final challenge of the morning was to create a programme to help us learn our times tables. This is something that we are still working on solving!
We had a lot of fun (thank-you Rowan), and we look forward to doing some more work using Scratch soon!
