Wembley Stadium Year 5

On Wednesday we visited Wembley Stadium! When we arrived, we were given a talk about Wembley Stadium and we found out lots of exciting facts. After that, we were put into little groups and in those groups we were instructed to make a cake design, then they gave us some yummy lunch, we had fish and chips and it was really tasty! As we got closer to the end of this amazing trip, we got a tour around the whole of Wembley stadium and we even got to stand in their gigantic fridge freezer. In conclusion, we all enjoyed our day at Wembley Stadium.

Designing, building and testing a raft (5JP)

Year 5 have been reading the book A Boy and a Bear in a Boat.

5JP have really enjoyed designing and building a raft to meet the needs of the boy and the bear. In their groups, the children had to select the best materials to build a raft, adding special features making each one unique.

Every raft floated successfully!

This week in school we have enjoyed a range of exciting activities. In the classroom, we have conducted many experiments such as; the ‘Floating Paper Clip’ experiment, ‘Rainbow Skittles’ experiment, the ‘Walking Water’ experiment and the ‘Balloon Rocket’ experiment.

On Monday we were lucky enough to see a number of African animals in school (e.g. snakes, a chameleonand a meerkat).

Additionally, we researched a number of scientists who have changed the world of science!

We hope you enjoy looking at some of our pictures below!

Year 5 CSI trip!

Recently, Year 5 went to Barking and Dagenham College to take part in a Crime Scene Investigation. Our trip was based at their STEM Centre and this stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

Blood spatter

During our time at the college, we were shown a range of blood spatters and informed of how much information you can get from the different spatters. We learnt about high velocity and low velocity and how they were injured and how tall the person is.


After lunch, we were shown three hand built cars one of which was driven by a Formula One racing driver.

We got to sit in all 3 cars and had to get out in under 5 seconds. They all had deep seats and it felt really weird.


In E-Fits we had to make the suspects face using the information that we had, for example the person had curly brown hair and almond shaped eyes. We got to make our own suspects and we really enjoyed this activity.


We learnt how to take an imprint of our fingerprint and were taught how to analyse each print. We then used this skill to find the culprit.


Kiyane, Jeffrey, Ameya and Bethel.
