Year 5 Sharks

Welcome to Year 5!
 
We are known as 'The Sharks' at Walbottle Village Primary School and our teacher is Miss Graham. During the autumn term our topic was World War 2 and we spent the day as evacuees on the farm at Beamish. We also made rock buns using rationed ingredients like they would have done during the war.
 
We had a visit from an 'Astromaths workshop' where we learnt about the solar system. We had a fantastic Halloween party and all got dressed up in costumes for the disco. We have taken part in both a benchball and dodgeball competition and trained with a coach from Newcastle Eagles to improve our basketball skills.
 
At Christmas time, we all took part in a production called 'Ebenezer'. We loved learning our lines and songs and thoroughly enjoyed performing to our friends and family. We had a lovely Christmas party and played lots of fun games including musical statues. Afterwards, we enjoyed a delicious buffet in our classroom and listened to some festive music. We had a great time doing Christmas crafts when our parents/guardians came into school. We made reindeers that moved using a mechanism using a butterfly pin. We were lucky to receive a special visit from Santa before breaking up for the Christmas holidays.
 
Have a look in the 'galleries' section on our website to find photos of what we have been up to.
