 Spelling and Writing Resources

Welcome to Year 5!

Magpies have made a great start to the year, it has been wonderful seeing how much they have grown in confidence (and height!) over the summer, ready to start upper Key Stage 2!

This year, we have brilliant topics in store for us – ‘The Victorians’, ‘Invaders and Settlers’ and ‘Is it fair?’ to name a few! To kick off the Autumn term, our first topic was be ‘Out of this World.’ The 20th July 2019 marked the 50-year anniversary of the first steps on the moon - making space a hot topic!

Since returning from a relaxing half-term, we have been learning about the Victorians! We had a themed morning, where the pupils and teachers went back in time and pretended to be Victorians! Here are some pictures of what the children wore!

The National Space Centre

On the 26th September, the pupils went on their first trip in Year 5 to the National Space Centre in Leicester. We explored the rocket tower, took part in a Life in Space workshop and went to the UK’s largest domed planetarium! The pupils showed great enthusiasm and a love for learning, a true credit to Bramingham! Here are some pictures of what we got up to whilst we were there!
