Year 5

Wow! Listen to our African Drumming!

During African Day, each class took part in composing, performing and recording an African drum pattern. The children used iPads which allowed them to play authentic sounding African drums by tapping pads to compose and record their pattern.

African Day

The children throughout the school enjoyed African Day last week. The children came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and took part in a range of fun activities.

The morning began with an assembly led by Mrs Innerdale. She told us about her son who is working out in a school in Botswana in Africa at the moment. We are trying to help them fund raise some money to buy football kits, guitars and sports equipment for the children in his school.

The children took part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the day;

As well as some language activities in class with Mrs Innerdale.


During our DT lesson, we used the ingredients from the recipe that we had researched to make tzatziki. First, we had to measure out our ingredients. Then we used our chopping skills to slice a variety of ingredients and crush garlic. Finally we combined the ingredients together and mixed thoroughly. To end the lesson we tasted our own batch of tzatziki with some warm pitta bread!



Tag Rugby

Today we practised our tag rugby skills; we developed our skills in dodging, catching and defending. Then we competed against each other in our house teams. We really enjoyed our tag rugby session.




Today we were invited to spend the day at Nissan. Here we completed a range of hands-on interactive workshops.

 First, we found out about Nissan and the Japanese culture and then we designed our own car. In the second session, we visited the training facility and then had the opportunity to use actual production parts and tools.

We really enjoyed the experience and thank Nissan for the wonderful experience.
