This is how 5T is shaping up today!!

Marvellous Morecambe


Our local area has been our whole school focus this week and we have been amazed by how much our locality has changed through time.


We kick-started our week with a 'Hey Day' dress up day to consider what Morecambe was like in its prime during the 1960s.

We looked fabulous! 


Wednesday brought a trip to the Promenade through Happy Mount Park, where we sketched and considered the importance and features of some of our lcoal landmarks such as the Venus and Child statue, the Clocktower and the Peninsulas of the Lakes.


A picnic lunch was enjoyed and we managed to keep it all for ourselves, safe from the lurking gulls who were desperate for a hula hoop or two!


A HUGE THANK YOU to the gentleman in the park who gave us all a complementary train ride - we LOVED whooping our way around the choo choo track!!


On Friday, we worked collaboratively with other KS2 classes to consider how we should regenerate the area to bring it back into the spotlight and make it a fun and thriving place once more. We have come up with some super ideas... who knows where they will lead?


We designed super seeds that would glide away from the parent plant. ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒบ

Cancer Research North West laboratory day at Lancaster University. We had an awesome and informative day and want to turn our classroom into a lab! Please, please, please, Mrs Taylor!

'Be the Change' student union day at Lancaster University. We enjoyed a fun day all about teamwork and leadership. Who in Year 5 will become a great leader?

Fantastic Fractions! "Can every lesson be this fun?" cried the children.

Life Cycles ๐Ÿข๐Ÿฆ‚๐Ÿ๐ŸฆŽ๐Ÿ…๐ŸŠ

We enjoyed finding out about the life cycles of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and insects. We then presented our projects to each other.

Who inspires us?

Today we helped professor Bubble to make some crazy bubbles. We found out that 3 D shapes worked really well.

A Milky Way of Metaphors

We have been exploring figurative language in Literacy this week and we have created metaphor poems linked to our Space topic.

Here are some of our ideas below.

Can you create any metaphors over half term to add to our collection linked to Halloween or your holiday antics?


The Moon is a bead on Earth's necklace, sliding along on its string. Megan


The stars are shiny, silver beads embroidered on a silky, black quilt.



 Saturn's rings are a running track for alien Olympians.



Saturn's rings are a baby's swim float keeping him up.



The stars are shimmering lantern bugs guiding your way through the darkness.
