P.E. is a compulsory part of the curriculum (all children must take part)

and for Health and Safety reasons full P.E kit must be worn.


The Glade Hill PE kit is a plain white t-shirt with black shorts or trousers.


P.E. in Year 5 is on Thursday mornings and sometimes on Friday afternoons.

Please can the children have their PE kit in school every day as in the summer term we like to take the opportunity of the nice weather and play more sports on the field!


Also please can children bring hat, sun cream and water bottles (every day) to school so they can stay protected from the sun and hydrated.

Summer Term!

Evacuee Day!

Today we have celebrated the end to our WWII topic by having an evacuee day!


We dressed up as evacuees, wore our gas masks, and name tags, carried round our identity cards, tried food from during the war, made propaganda posters and made our own Anderson shelters!

Take a look at all the fun we have had!

Science Week!


We have been really lucky to spend a whole week learning about:




We had many different learning experiences and we learnt an awful lot about what it would be like to be an astronaut.

We explored these questions:


- What would an astronaut wear?

- What do astronauts eat and drink?

- How do astronauts go to the toilet in space?

- What would an astronaut see in space?


We explored astro nappies, experimented with the absorbency of materials to design our own astro nappies, we tried astronaut ice cream and we went to space in a Infliverse!


Take a look at the amazing science we have been up to...

Creative Conductors.


We were really lucky to have a member of EON come in to visit us and teach us all about conductors

and insulators. We learnt that materials have properties which can be really useful - such as allowing electricity to pass through it. These are called conductors.


We made models using a variety of conductive materials and connected them via wires to a programmed computer. When the circuits were complete, the model would make different noises! It was so much fun!


Take a look as us in action...
