A fantastic end to a brilliant year.

Lineham Farm

A brilliant time was had by the children and the staff at Lineham Farm.  The children were an absolute pleasure to be around, we had lots of fun and discovered lots of hidden talents. The photographs show some of the things that we got up to but the whole experience will be one we never forget!

There are over 500 photographs -please check them out on a separate page.


Year 5 wrote their own Fairytales from a different characters point of view. They then published them - check out the photographs and read Alisha and Madison's Goldilocks story and Tanisha and Lloyd's Troll story.

Knowsley Safari Park

We had a fantastic day out with Year 2 - watch our Photostory below to see some of the wildlife we experienced.


Science Investigations

Here's a few pictures from our science investigations. We have been mixing materials together and finding out what happens and whether the changes that occur are reversible. We had lots of fun. Check out some of the videos of the experiments on Year 5's video page.


What did you think to our science afternoon? Which was your favourite investigation?

Hi Mrs Ince :) I thought that the science afternoon was fantastic and marvellous,it was interesting to mix two different materials and to see the changes. My favourite investigation was everything that we did !!! I really enjoyed the fake snot, Mrs Ince put some on my hand, Ewww but I got her back when she wasn't looking :) :) :) As well the coke and mentors was good at the start and the vitamin and water was really intresting. When we did the Giants hand with carbon monoxide and vinager it was AWSOME I really enjoyed it :):):)


Roman Numerals

As part of our History topic on the Romans and the new Maths curriculum we have been learning about Roman numerals.  We are so confident that Mrs Ince gave us a challenge to solve with a partner. Some of us had to match Roman numerals with the correct arabic number like a jigsaw and others had roman numeral multiplications to work out and find the answer in Roman numerals. We were all successful and we impressed Mrs Ince.

Making Puppets

Some staff from Corpus Christi Catholic College worked with Year 5 to design and create their own puppets - I think you will agree with the staff from Corpus, they did a fantastic job!


St George's Day


Dragon's Den Winners!

Well done to a group of our Year 5 children who got through to a gas safety poster final.  They had to prepare for a Dragon Den's type final ... with Isabella producing a fantastic powerpoint all about gas safety.  The team did a fabulous job and the judges commented on how well mannered and sociable the children were, something that we are very proud of! We are also very proud to say that our team won which means their gas safety poster will soon feature on the side of the Northern Gas Vans!

Reading with Year 2

During English lessons Year 2 and Year 5 have been learning about Traditional Tales. Year 2 have written their own fairytales and Year 5 have written their own fables. The children joined together to read their stories to each other.


World Book Day


French Food Afternoon

We transformed the Year 5 classroom in to a French café and invited Year 2 to join us, as they too had been learning about France. Year 5 served Year 2 various French foods, explaining what they were and encouraging them to sample the foods. Year 5 also spoke some French to them and we listened to French music. We all had a lovely afternoon.


PE - Leeds United Coaching



We enjoyed the topic of forces. We tested parachutes of different size to find out about air resistance and investigated water resistance with different shapes of plasticine.

We also made catapults to support our understanding of levers.



Last half term we were learning about Biscuits in our Design and Technology lessons. Have a look below at some of the biscuits we designed and made - they were yummy!
