Y5/6H Grimm and Co persuasion

From using the items and others found at the Grimm and Co market, we attempted to persuade people to buy them. We made radio adverts to persuade people to buy things like a rubber, a bag of sand and a cloth. First we used it on the ‘Dragons’ in the den and then made the […]

Congratulation to @GrimmAndCo

A huge congratulations to Grimm and Co on this incredible news, the children of Rotherham are so lucky to have you and we are so pleased we were able to be a small part of that today. The experiences you give are children are out of this world and we can’t wait to continue this […]

Y5/6H Science investigation

This afternoon we discussed microorganisms and how they can grow. The children then developed an investigation into how mould grows on bread and what the best location for this is. We have bread in cupboards, outside and even in the fridge. We look forward to seeing the results after half term!

Year 5 v Year 1 in Numeracy.

Year 5s are out and about exploring the environment with our Year 1S. We love maths at Rockingham let’s see which year group come out on top. Team work in Numeracy is a wonderful skill especially when children can explain how they calculated the answer.

Y5/6H Gannets

This afternoon we have studied the seabird a gannet and used our art skills to recreate an image of their heads. We discussed colour, tones and shadows to come up with a fabulous final result.

Y5/6H Rockstars

As part of our Rockstars day, all of 5/6H got chance to improve their times tables skills on Rockstars and looked amazing in their fancy dress. We had class battles and even took on Mr Hanson at our tables games.

Y5/6H Maths learning

This week after doing lots of calculation work we challenged ourselves to solve reasoning problems. We carried out the MathsMash with excellent resilience using whiteboards and equipment to solve before writing solutions onto our cards. Well done everyone for using good discussion skills.

Mr Hanson V Mrs Buttree

Today’s class challenge at lunchtime got off to a flying start with Y6B challenging Y5/6H the children were off to a flying start until Mrs Tunks and Mr Hanson decided to play. The competition was excellent between both sides. Josh Oldham Roberts was today’s man of the match, we are so proud of him with […]

Y5/6H Science

This afternoon Y5/6H went outside to test if the boats made in home learning would float or sink. We also tested if they would move along the water. They were a great success and some fabulous learning took place and excellent discussions.

Y5/6 H sports

This week 5/6H have been using their hand eye coordination skills to play hockey. We are looking forward to developing our teamwork skills over the next few weeks! #beactive


This week the children in 5/6H discussed how are world and school could be better. Everyone has an opinion during class discussions and then we put our ideas into speech bubbles for us to remember throughout the year ahead. There were two key messages from our discussions: Our world would be better if there was […]

Blast off!

To finish off our topic, Y4/5D and Y5/6H went outside to launch our bottle rockets. We recorded and compared the timings of each rocket. Then we spoke about the science behind the rockets movement, such as the force of gravity, air resistance and pressure.

Y5/6H Forces

The children in 5/6H looked at the forces gravity and air resistance. We investigated if the size of a parachute would slow a rocket capsule down or not. We discovered the larger the parachute, the longer it took an object to hit the ground. 11DC76E1-9238-47EE-8CFB-6AD57015443B
