5WH 2017-2018

Ice Skating


During the spring term year 5 will be skating on a Monday afternoon. After 3 sessions the improvements we have made have been amazing, everyone is now going around on their own and some of us are even starting to go backwards! Check back later in the term to see our progress then.

Autumn Term


Greek Food Tasting


To finish off our topic of Ancient Greece we tasted typical Greek food. This was great fun and we all tried at least one thing that we hadn't had before. The halloumi was a big hit with the year. We found olives split opinions; some of us loved them and some were not so keen!


After tasting all the food we made tables describing the sensations of the food and how we could use our different senses to explain them.

Testing Upthrust!

Thursday 7th December 2017



Today we have been experimenting in science to discover the effect upthrust has on an object. We formed different shapes out of plasticine and placed them in water to see if they floated. To work out the strength of the upthrust we measure the Newtons on a Newton meter, here are some pictures of us in action!


Olympic Medal Making in Art & Design

Friday 24th November 2017


5WH have been working hard in Art lessons, planning and designing our medals and then making them out of clay. We worked hard to make the best design and then once they had been made we let them dry and painted them a lovely shade of bronze, silver or gold. Please have a look at our amazing work!

Year 5 Class Assembly 9th November 2017

YEAR 4 2016 - 2017

25.05.17 - Fiesta Day! Today we enjoyed some Mexican music, tasted some classic Mexican dishes (including Chilli de Crawford), competed in a Mexican quiz AND had a go at creating our own Mexican folk art paintings that were almost as tall as some of the children! Have a look at the fun we had.

22.03.17 - If you would like to have a go at practising the song that we have been learning in Spanish, follow this link -

Please remember to get your adult's permission first.

21.03.17 - Look how busy we have been in 4C! We have applied our superb team working skills and our river knowledge to create these amazing river scapes. Aren't they fabulous?

09.03.17 - We had an amazing time at Castleton this week! The children were absolutely brilliant! They asked lots of interesting questions, played beautifully together and represented Haydn so well. We were all so proud of them. Look at some of the fun we had!


06.03.17 - Today, we enjoyed some Kodu training with Mrs Simner. She introduced us to the coding program and showed us how to use lots of its features. If you would like to use the program at home to practise your coding, it can be found here for free!

Alice in Wonderland


Well, what a busy time we have been having in 4C! All of the children in Year 4 have worked tirelessly to create, produce and perform our spectacular version of Alice in Wonderland. The show was a real treat and a joy to watch every time. Below are some of our pictures from rehearsals. Enjoy!

International Day - 29.11.16

For International Day, our country was Germany! We learnt how to say "hello" and "goodbye" in German and learnt how to count up to 12. Miss Elson was very busy all day, baking pretzels with the children. We tried sauerkraut and even some spicy mustard!

To tie in with our history topic, Ancient Egypt, we have made a bread salad called a fattoush. It is delicious! If you would like to make a fattoush at home, scroll down for the recipe.


1 loaf of crisp bread

3 finely chopped tomatoes

3 finely chopped cucumbers

1 finely chopped onion

3 crushed garlic cloves

1 finely chopped lettuce

a few fresh mint leaves, chopped

2 tbs lemon juice

1 tbs sumac

2 tbs oil

pinch of salt

1) Cut up the bread into small pieces.

2) Sprinkle with cold water and place in a salad bowl.

3) Pile all the vegetables and mint over the bread.

4) Mix lemon juice, sumac, salt and oil.

5) Pour over fattoush and mix together.

In Science, we have investigated pitch with bottles (and tried to play Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star with them) and tested what sound can travel through.

We also had a longest sausage dog competition. We had some spectacular entrants, with two of them being over 5 metres long! Some of them were made from loo rolls, some of them were drawn on enormous sheets of paper and some of them were even made out of clothes!
