5SH Orienteering

Year 5 and 6 have taken part in an orienteering experience within our school grounds. This involved looking at a map to follow a trail, having certain check points, recognising some clear reference points and locating clues. This lesson formed part of our PE curriculum of Outdoor Adventurous Activities. 

Science Day


We are learning about changes of materials. We investigated how to recover a substance from a solution and learnt that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes. 




We had a great afternoon singing Christmas carols at Queen's hospital and raised money for charity. 


Christmas Performance 


Thank you to all that came to watch our performance.


In English, we have been reading Walter Tull’s biography. Walter was a professional footballer player and a soldier during World War One. He had to give up his career as a footballer when he became a soldier, but he then became recognised as the first black officer to lead white British soldiers into battle.


We have written recounts in the role of Walter and explored his thoughts and emotions through the use of drama.

Black History Month

As part of our Black History Month Celebrations, we have been learning about Stevie Wonder. We learned about his early life, musical career, challenges he has overcome and his charitable work. We created fact files, posters and pop art.


We have been learning the history of the Kingdom of Benin, in what is now modern-day Nigeria in West Africa. We have used a variety of sources to find out how the Ancient Kingdom of Benin was ruled.

Benin Mask Making 

Benin Workshop


We took part in a workshop led by Horniman Museum about Kingdom of Benin. We looked at artefacts that are kept in the museum, how replicas are made, what Benin is like today as well as having the chance to ask our expert historian any questions we had. This workshop is the finale of our AD900 unit and a culmination of all of our history learning for the past few weeks.
