Welcome to Year 5F’s blog for this week.


This week has been quite an exciting time. On Wednesday, we all went to Martin Mere Wetland Trust. The children have been looking forward to this for quite some time now…and it did not disappoint. We had a fabulous day. The children were able to get up really close to a wide variety of wildlife. They fed the birds; some of them even ate out their hands! After washing our hands, we all had a delicious slice of the Fruits of the Forest cake that we made last week. Yum! Yum! Later on, the children took part in a pond-dipping activity. With nets, they were able to dredge the pond and found a whole new world of mini-beasts living underwater. After lunch, we spent some time on the adventure park. Here are some photos from the day. We hope you enjoy looking at them.

Maths - This week we have been multiplying and dividing numbers by 10, 100 and 1000. It has been quite tricky to get to grips with. However, once we mastered not just adding zeros but moving the digits up or down places we had it all sorted out.


Try playing this online game to see how good you are at multiplying and dividing numbers.

English – We began the week by up-levelling our vocabulary about our woodland creatures. After that, we completed a mind-map on what we were looking forward to on our visit to Martin Mere wetland Trust. To end this week, we have planned and written a re-count about our trip.


Topic – Some of the children went out on the ALPS on Monday to film their documentaries.

The children followed up our trip to Martin Mere with some artwork. They began by sketching some of the wildfowl they saw in the water. Then, after that, they used watercolours to produce a painting.


Science – The children have been looking at life-cycles. They investigated the life-cycle of a frog as well as different birds. Then, they produced their very own life-cycle wheels. They look amazing!


This week the certificate winners were ALL OF YEAR 5F for their exemplary behaviour on our trip to Martin Mere. They made us extremely proud. smiley

All that remains to say is have a fantastic weekend and we will see you back in school on Monday.
