Our Own Hindu drawings!

Following our Hindu temple visit, we were inspired to create our own Hindu drawings of significant Hindu Gods using pastels.  See if you can guess who these Gods are..!

Our Hindu Temple Visit


As part of our RE topic on Hinduism, we had an exciting opportunity to visit a Hindu temple.  Following an extremely long walk to the centre of Bolton, we went into the Mandir Hindu Temple and had a wonderful learning experience.  We were guided by Hirendra Patel, who told us about all of the amazing artifacts and decorations that we could see.  Check out our gallery of pictures below to see more..!Class sitting quietly during chanting

Journey to Jo'burg

Take a look at our fantastic display board about our English class read 'Journey to Jo'burg'.  We produced our own diary entries about Tiro and Nalidi, who were looking for their mother, Mma.

Extraordinary Ordsall Hall!!

As part of our topic on Tudors this half-term, Year 5 took a visit to Ordsall Hall in Salford.  Please take the time to look at some amazing photographs of the day and read some comments by the children...


'It was such an amazing place, I'd recommend it to anybody who wants to learn about Tudors.'



'I liked going into the attic to see where the servants slept.  It was cramped!'



'I loved the kitchen.  We saw animals hung up waiting to be cooked! It was gruesome.'
