Moon Phases

In our science lesson, we learnt about the different moon phases. The children created moon spinners to remember the key vocabulary and aid their explanations.

The Space Race

We researched the ‘Space Race’ between America and Russia and then created a timeline of events on our tables.  The children collaborated to learn fascinating facts and develop their Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs).

Fistral Bubble Fun

We had a great few days together designing and decorating our own hats, surfboard bookmarks and making chocolate chaos lollies!  

Antony House

Year 5 had a fantastic day exploring the gardens at Antony House. The children are full of ideas and ready to write stories with tension, using their experiences as inspiration for their settings.

Fistral’s Practical Maths Lesson

This week we have been investigating division. We have been using resources and pictures to understand exchanging in short division. We are becoming division experts!

Great Fire of London

During our topic launch, Year 5 recreated Pudding Lane by building Tudor houses. We invited Torpoint Retained Firefighters in to burn down the bakery. We watched the fire spread and all our hard work burn to smithereens, but it was great fun!
