Year 5

Boardroom Challenge

Earlier this term, Year 5 had a visit from representatives of Newcastle Building Society. The children were set a challenge to create a small business that would generate funding for a local charity. The group with the best idea would be selected to take part in the Boardroom challenge. Over the past two weeks, the six children have been working very hard with Mrs Myers to perfect their presentation and make sure everything was just right. On Friday 12th July, the children did us proud by delivering a fantastic presentation to Andrew Haigh (CEO of Newcastle Building Society), Liz Twist MP and three other judges. Well Done!!


In-Flight Meals

As part of our Erasmus project, year 5 have been designing their very own “In-Flight Meal” for an airline to promote. We decided to create a healthy option for passengers to enjoy, with a set menu that could be selected during any flight. The idea of these menus is to promote the importance of nutrition and a balanced diet with a range of healthy eating. Well done Year 5!

Flight paths through Europe

Year 5 felt it was really important for us to know exactly where our Erasmus partners lived in Europe. We used grid referencing on a map of Europe to locate all of the schools from our project. We then took this information and cross referenced it with atlas work to locate the specific towns. Finally, we then researched different flight paths between all of these placing, we discovered that most routes would have to go through Paris or Amsterdam airports before arriving at their final destination. Well done Year 5!

The Boardroom Challenge Round 2!

The Boardroom Challenge Round 2!

We welcomed back to school the judges for the second round of the Newcastle Building Society Boardroom Challenge. This time Kay, Steve and Tracy were here to see the two teams selected from Round 1. Both teams we tasked with pitching their own fundraising event for our school charity, The Food Bank. Each team had their own unique ideas and presented themselves wonderfully, however there could only be one team that could advance to the Grand Final at Proto in Gateshead. Well done to the team of Maya, Jamie Sutton, Solomon, Alice Lancon, Olivia and Alex.
