Keep your eyes peeled on our page as we'll be sharing some photos of the exciting learning that we'll be doing over the next few weeks.

 Getting Dizzy with Dissolving 

 We've been investigating soluble and insoluble substances. It was great fun; if not a bit messy. 

       

 Making Maths Fun

 Year 5 pupils this week demonstrated all the learning journey skills when they planned, designed and created their very own maths board games. Skills such as communication, being adaptable, working together, imagination, respect and helping each other to learn were all awarded with a plethora of stickers. 

       

 

 Bikeability Level 1

 Year 5 pupils honed their cycling skills, confidence and safety with the help of a two day course from Bikeability.

     

Anglo-Saxon Stunning Start

 Carden was 'invaded' by a host of Angles, Saxons and Jutes for a magnificent stunning start to this term's topic. 

         

Planets Workshop

Year 5 worked with students from Sussex University to explore our Solar System. It was out of this world!

British Wildlife Centre

Year 5 learnt a great deal about British wildlife and our native habitats when we visited the British Wildlife Centre. We got to see all sorts of amazing animals, such as: Scottish wildcats, otters, foxes, badgers and hedgehogs.

Yellow Wave and Pirate Adventures

The children of year 5 and year 6 have been learning all about the ways of Pirates and life on the high seas. We have written poems, researched facts, penned pirate themed art and solved piratical maths problems, as well as learning about famous pirates and singing sea shanties. The highlight of our week was a trip to the sea front to take part in a range of sporting activities at Yellow Wave.
