Science: Crime Scene at Golborne High School

This afternoon we happened to come across a crime scene at Golborne High School!  Thankfully, Miss Hillidge had secured the area prior to our arrival and she had a couple of forensic scientist suits that we could use.  


At the scene, some peculiar white powder was found and what seemed to be a note… it turned out that it was in fact a shopping list! We can’t help but think that they were both left by the culprit of the crime!

Over the next few weeks, we shall be investigating the scene further by examining the evidence closely… we wonder who was responsible? We can’t wait to find out!

27.10.17: What are we learning next week?

Welcome back to a new half term – I hope that you’ve all had a great break!

In English this week, we will be completing a set of instructions based on a great science experiment.

Maths will focus upon problem solving.

In our topic lessons, we are going to be completing our 3D collage sculptures – we can’t wait to share the finished product with you all.

Also, this half term Year 5 will be going to Golborne High School on a Monday afternoon to have a science lesson with Miss Hillidge. We will leave school at 1.40pm and return by 3pm.  We will be completing the science unit ‘Could you be the next CSI Investigator?’ I’m sure that the class will really enjoy it.



If anyone could donate a new item to go into our shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, remember that they need to be in school for Friday 10th November.  See a previous BLOG post for more information! Thanks everyone for your donations so far.

Homework: Amazing Art!

Once again,  we’ve had some amazing homework come into school this week.

I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the amount of effort that some children have put into their homework – it’s a delight to see it and display it in our classroom!

I’m sure you’ll agree that the children should be extremely proud of themselves.

SMSC: Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

Today we launched our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal.

As you can see from the letter, we are aiming to complete shoeboxes for children aged 5-9.

Any items that you can donate would be much appreciated – your child can bring them into school and hand them into their class teacher

All items are to be brought into school for Friday 10th November.

Thank you for your support with this – it’s much appreciated!
