Superb Space STEM work

year5 teacher (S.Cropper) on: Year 5 Blog

As as launch(!) to our Moon week, Mrs Cropper arranged for a STEM ambassador to come into Year 5 for the full day.  It was a brilliant day and his space knowedge was just phenomenal, awesome and very inspirational.  We were full of questions for him....and he could answer them all! WOW! 


Starry Night artwork in the Lytham Gallery Exhibition

year5 teacher (S.Cropper) on: Year 5 Blog

Our amazing artwork has been chosen to be on display in the Lytham Heritage Art display during February. This work was inspired by our Moon Week and we used techniques similar to Van Gogh in his work - Starry Night.  Can you see the swirling, circular lines we have used to create these pictures?  Evie's work was selected as a prizewinner in the exhibition. Well done Evie!! 


Y5 & Y6 Cookery Club

year5 teacher (S.Cropper) on: Year 5 Blog

Last week in cookery club with Mr Swift we made vegetable fajitas. We learned how to use a knife to prepare vegetable safely and how to cook on a stove! The fajitas smelled delicious and they tasted great too! 


Learning about Pneumatics

year5 teacher (S.Cropper) on: Year 5 Blog

In DT we carried out investigations into pneumatics and had great fun seeing forces in action. Just look at those smiles! We have been able to see how pneumatics are used to move smaller items in our classrooms, adn learned about how they are used in heavy lifting equipment and machinery in industry and daily life.
