Welcome to Year 5

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 visited the University of Hertfordshire inflatable planetarium. They experienced an amazing journey through space and met Pudsey bear!

The Solar System

Here we are making the orbits of the planets ourselves-this helped us to answer the question ‘what is a year?’




Viking Ships


During Science we really enjoyed investigating the properties and changes that occurred when adding water to sodium polyacrylate-otherwise known as instasnow! 

We loved mixing and separating different materials, with some surprising results.

Wild Science

Meeting animals close-up helped us to develop our understanding of reproduction and life-cycles of a range of animals, including the hairless rat!


A fabulous day out at Cranfield university combining Design technology, Science and Maths. We designed, built and raced cars and were given a tour of the factory. Children were able to see their learning in Science come to life! (No cameras were allowed in this bit-the development of the latest models is very secret!)

Priory Church

We spent a fascinating day learning about the founder of our school and her family, who were very important benefactors for our town of Dunstable.

Learning about the Priory buildings circa 1450, was very interesting and we stood on the spot in the Lady chapel where King Henry VIII’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon was annulled.

Design Technology

Children have really enjoyed designing and making their own bags from recycled t-shirts and vests. 

Some very cleaver ideas incorporated with developing applique techniques and some tye die produced some fabulous results.
