Year 5 Topic Work Resources


As part of our topic “Enough for Everyone” we will be investigating Hydro Power. On Friday 14th May, the children will be making their own Hydro Power machine as part of renewable sources of energy.

To complete this each child will need to bring these items into school from home:

  • A clean milk or juice bottle
  • A piece of stiff cardboard
  • A cotton reel
  • 8 plastic teaspoons.

We have a number of other items needed which school will provide.

Please could every child have these items in school on Friday 14th May – this will enable every child to bring a Hydro Power machine home.

Thank you for your support

5M Topic Homework

As part of our topic “Enough for Everyone” children will need to find food items in their homes, cupboards and fridges and identify where it comes from e.g. on grapes from Tesco’s on the front it tells us “Produce from Spain.”

The children will be bringing home a table labelled Food item and Where it comes from  – these are the only two columns the children will need to complete.

We will be completing this lesson next Friday (7th), so the sheet need be brought back into school then.

Many thanks

England does the Daily Mile

Our school will be taking part in the   England does The Daily Mile on Friday 30th April.

Each bubble will be timetabled to run at a certain time of the day. As it will be a long run it will be easier for the children to be in the correct footwear, therefore,   your child/children come into school in their trainersfor the day.
