Year 5

Summer 2

A look back at a great year

As we near the end of the school year, we thought it would be a great time to reflect on all of the amazing work that the children have done during their time in Y5. All of the staff have loved working with the children this year and wish them all of the best in Year 6.

Summer 1

Science Investigation

If there's two things we love in Y5, it's science and teamwork, so when Y2 asked us to help them with an investigation, we were more than happy to join in. The Y2 children were investigating if we get faster as we get older and, with our assistance, they planned a series of challenges. Watch our video to see how we got on...

Trip to Longshaw Estate

Summer term started with a bang in Y5, with an amazing trip to the beautiful Longshaw Estate. Just on Sheffield's doorstep, Longshaw is surrounded by breathtaking, Peak District scenery, which we didn't hesitate to explore. We learnt some of the history of the estate as well as sketching maps of the landscape. What a beautiful place!

Spring 2

Y5 Celebrate World Book Day

Pipworth celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 7th March and, Y5 weren't slow to join in the fun! We teamed up with Year 1 to do some paired reading before striking a pose in our amazing book day costumes. What a great day!

Y5 PE - Netball

This term, we have been learning all about the fast paced sport of netball. For many of us it has been our first try at it, but now we have seen how exciting it is, it definitely won't be our last!

Spring 1

Maths Day = Fun!

In Y5 we know how important maths is, but it doesn't mean we can't have some fun as well! This term saw the annual NSPCC Number Day, and we did lots of investigations, including investigations about chocolate! We had a great time, but the highlight of the day was when we did subtraction - subtracting the chocolates from the box and eating them, that is! Enjoy our video below:

Hallam University 'touchdown' in Y5

Year 5 had a taste of the glamorous world of American Football this term, when students from the Hallam University came to give them a taste of this exciting sport. They learnt all about the different roles on the team, from Offence to Defense, and how to score the all important touchdowns! HUT-HUT!

May the FORCE be with you...

In Y5 we have been learning all about forces and friction, and doing some cool experiments to develop our understanding. Watch our video below to find out more:

It's all fun and games in Y5!

Our PE this term is Athletics, but in Y5 we understand the importance of warming up our muscles before exercising, so, we thought we'd highlight some of the brilliant warm-up games that we have been playing before our PE sessions. My favourite is 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' - so exciting! Check out our videos below:
