Year 5

We had a fun-filled day either training to be Crime Scene Investigators at school or about the 'Art of Manufacturing' at Toyota.

Easter Biscuits - some of our amazing finished products!

Baking action shots and the finished products - our evaluations confirmed they were delicious!

Year 5 enjoyed Bikeability Level 1 training

As part of MJS Science Week 2023, Mrs Hill came to talk to us about her job with the Environment Agency.  We revised our knowledge of life cycles, created different food chains and learnt about invasive species.  It was inspiring to hear about the value of STEM skills in the real world. 

Year 5 visit to the Richard III Centre in Leicester

Year 5 cricket coaching.

Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic cricket coaching session from Derbyshire County Cricket club.

Elf Day 2022. This year we had training on how to make peppermint creams and packaging and how to decorate baubles.

We were so proud of all the children for their fantastic production of 'No-one Wraps like an Elf'. They worked incredibly hard to learn their lines and some complicated songs. To see videos of some of the songs, please visit the videos section of the website.

In Year 5, we learnt and performed 'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth.

Year 5 visited Lea Green on 29th and 30th September.  We completed Geography field work at Lea Brook, undertaking a number of different studies. These included measuring width, depth and velocity of the stream, as well as searching for mini beasts as a way of checking the quality of the water.
