Term 5

Term 5 has been busy for 5RT. We have been linking our writing to our topic on ancient Greece, including creating our own Greek myth. Everyone should be proud of the incredible effort they put into crafting their sentences and adding lots of suspense to keep the reader hooked.


Everyone really enjoyed our trip to see Matilda at the Bristol Hippodrome. It left us with lots of questions about how they achieved all of the amazing visual effects. Not only that, we have also had the opportunity to make bread this term as part of our DT learning. We thought carefully about how to make our bread appealing both in terms of the appearance and its taste. I was impressed by the creativity and ambition everyone showed in their final product.

Term 4

In Science, the Year 5 children have been learning about life cycles. 10 eggs were brought into school. We watched them hatch and then were able to hold them.

Term 3

In Year 5, we have been learning about the artist Giacometti. He was famous for his slender statues made from wire and mod-roc. We imitated his style in the form of the rainforest animals we have been learning about this term.

Term 2

5RT Ukulele Project Blurb

Thanks to the generosity of the PTA, Bridge Farm are the proud owners of 30 brand new ukuleles! 5RT have been the first class to test these instruments. Their lessons have taught them not only how to play a series of basic chords, but also the history and culture surrounding the ukulele. The project ended with a performance. Check out our band pictures below!

Term 1

In science, Year 5 made Plasticine boats to investigate why some objects float. Our first attempts were not very successful but they improved when we tried again.
