Welcome to Class 5. We are a mixed Year 5/6 class. The children work very hard and we would like to share some of the interesting and exciting activities that we do in school. We are becoming young adults and try to work towards achieving respect, responsibility and challenge. We are now old enough to start thinking about what contribution we can make to the community and the wider world. We hope you enjoy looking at our work.

Year 5

Year 6

We were very lucky to have Tom Palmer visit in school. We have enjoyed reading his latest book called Resist.


Ryan, Kayden, Evie-Mae and Eva all competed in a National Maths Competition at Stockport Academy. Here they are still smiling after a very difficult exam. We are extremely proud of them.

We have visited St Matthew's Church to investigate our RE question "How can religion help us when life gets tough?"


We have been busy learning about fire on science week. The best part was toasting marshmallows.    


 We have enjoyed World Book Day. We dressed up and read the new book by S F Said called Tyger. 

 We visited Manchester Jewish Museum.

We had a visit from Manchester Fire Service so that we could learn about fire safety. 



In Class 5 we visited Edgeley Library and learnt how to use a library. We enjoyed looking for our favourite books and authors. Hopefully we are going to visit the library and learn about the homework area.



We have been learning about black history and we have learnt about Edward Coulson, Stephen Lawrence and George Floyd. We have also taken part in the "Show racism the red card," workshop. We have also learnt about discrimination, prejudice and what the protected characteristics are.



 In science we have been investigating light. We have investigated shadows, refraction and reflections.



We are always happy to help out KS1 by singing at the nativity.
