"This term, Year 5 have been working extremely hard on the Year 3, 4 and 5 production of 'Fantastic Mr Fox'. However, we've still found time to work hard on our other lessons too! Our Design Technology topic this term has been 'Moving Toys' and we have constructed our own toys which use a cam mechanism. We have learnt all about different types of mechanism and different types of movement, and have constructed some excellent mechanisms of our own."
On Wednesday 6th December, Year 5 boldy went to the National Space Centre in Leicester. We encountered many strange and unfamiliar objects and explored the wonders of the night sky - both in our solar system and beyond - in the magnificent planetarium. As always, the Holywell staff were extremely impressed by the behaviour and teamwork of their crew and, upon arrival back at our classrooms, all agreed that this mission had been a massive success.
