Orienteering!

Four children from year five visited Tong Leadership Academy yesterday to take part in an orienteering race. Working in pairs, they had to navigate their way to a specific point on a map and then return to the start to pass the baton on to the other pair. The children were competing against 11 other schools, who were mainly made up of year six children, from Bradford and Leeds. At the end of the competition, the top four teams would progress to a final round at Leeds Beckett Park. Unfortunately, the team just missed out on the top four but did extremely well to finish fifth!

Science!

In year five, we have been learning about how plants reproduce. Today, we took cuttings from fuchsias and planted them in new soil. We are hoping to watch them develop their roots and grow into new plants over the next few weeks.

Manchester Airport

Last week, year five visited Manchester Airport to enhance our topic of flight! Everyone had a great day as we were shown around by two fantastic hosts – Neil and Elaine. There are some photos from our day below. I will be choosing our best recount of the trip and posting it on the blog within the next few days!
