Welcome to Year 5!
This week Year 5 debated the question: "Should Year 5 leave Adel Primary to form its own independent school?"
In groups the children were randomly allocated 'Remain' or 'Leave' and then had to create a campaign to support the viewpoint.
Year 6 were invited into the class to listen to speeches, watch campaign videos and read the materials each campaign had created. They then voted on the issue.
As Year 5 were the reigning attendance champions Bobby Bear, our attendance mascot, was allowed to come on the trip with us.
He certainly enjoyed himself!
In literacy Year 5 have started reading 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. They used ideas from the text to create a descriptive piece of writing set in Victorian London.
Click on the images below to see some examples of their work.
As part of our Earth & Space topic Year 5 have been designing and making rockets. See below for a video of our test flights!
School Attendance Winners!
Well done to Year 5 who were the class with the highest attendance at school for a fourth week this year. Bobby Bear, our school attendance mascot, will be spending another week in Year 5 and by now he certainly feels at home.

Year 5 had a great morning at the Rugby World Cup Fanzone (despite England crashing out of the tournament only days before).
They played games to work on their rugby skills and also tag games that tested them mentally as well as physically.
Thank you to the parents/carers who attended the Year 5 information session.
