PE at Cottages

The children will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Fridays. They should come to school in their PE kits on those days rather than their uniform. It would also be useful for the children to bring spare footwear to change in to on a Friday in case their trainers get muddy in the PE session.

Monday 16th November - Maths in the Real World Day

We used census data from 1851 and 1891 to find out more about life in West Bridgford during those times. We then produced bar charts or Venn diagrams to help us answer questions. Here's some of the results of our hard work.


Maths in the Real World Day

Highlights from this half term...

Friday 16th October: 'Wear Red Day' for Show Racism the Red Card


Black History Month

We've learnt about slavery. We've looked at the lives of famous African Americans and black British people. We've looked at the work of  African American artist Alma Thomas and then had a go at producing our own abstract work in her style.


We investigated which ball was the bounciest.




We made some peg dolls after we learned that poor Victorian children often played with hand made toys like peg dolls.

Year 5 are really enjoying Paceball this term
