Forest Activities

We had four fantastic forest sessions where we have built dens, bridges and natural sculptures. We can't wait for our next sessions in the new year. 

Class 5- Autumn Term 2023


We are learning about properties of materials and reversible and irreversible changes.


Our first experiment will focus on thermal insulators. We will investigate which materials are best for maintaining the temperature of of water.

Ed Shed

All children have an individual log on for EdShed so that they can access Maths Shed to practise their mental maths skills and Spelling Shed which is updated each week with new spellings to be learnt. 

If you need another copy of these details, please ask. 

Shackleton's Journey

In literacy we have started reading the text Shackleton's Journey and over the coming weeks we will be learning about this epic Antarctic expedition. We will discover more about his crew and apply for a position onboard ourselves. 


Forest School

Forest school sessions will continue this half term and we will let you know dates and days shortly.

Science / topic

This half term in science we will be learning about the earth, the planets and space.

Topic lessons will focus on the history of the local area. We will look at changes over time and investigate the railways and the Cragg Coiners.


This term we will have swimming lessons on Tuesday mornings until the Christmas holidays. Children need to wear swim shorts or one piece costumes.

Long hair needs to be tied up and jewellery removed for sessions.
