A Trip Back In Time with Adam Bushnell

We took a trip back in time to WWI with children's author Adam Bushnell. Adam surprised YR 5 with an afternoon experiencing what WWI was truly like. Adam brought in a range of equipment used in the war, such as bayonets, gas masks, ammo, ammunition boxes, medals and a real war rifle. Year 5 were extremely excited to observe and use the range of exciting equipment. We were able to envisage what life was like in the trenches.

Adam arranged a real feast for the senses and even managed to bring in real smells from the war such as gun-smoke and gas.


We ventured out of the classroom to build camps that would survive a bombing and became war heroes. We finished the afternoon learning about the war mascot Tim the tortoise. Adam even brought in his own tortoise to let Year 5 have a good luck stroke.


Year 5 experienced a fabulous afternoon with big thanks to Adam Bushnell!

Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day 2022
Year 5 came in their fanciest funny costumes to help raise money for Comic Relief.~

This week ,we have played 'Capture the Big Red Nose' with Mr Higgins. We put on our detective hats for a range of puzzles with Miss Johnson. We tested our luck in the school raffle and designed persuasive posters to get people to donate.

Year 5 raised over £400 to contribute to the school total!
Thank you to all our contributors for excellent fundraising!  

World Book Day

On World Book Day, we dressed up in our pyjamas and came to school with our favourite books. Then, after some reading time, we designed comic book strips for our favourite book characters. We tried to use eye catching and exciting speech bubbles to narrate our comics.
Furthermore, once we designed our comic strips, we chose some of our favourite characters from stories to model out of playdough. Once we had modelled our figure, we tried to use expanded noun phrases to describe their characteristics.
