  Think Forensic

Think Forensic visited our school on Tuesday 12th June. Year 5 & 6 learnt how to be a forensic scientist. They collected evidence from a crime scene. They took finger & tyre prints, analysed rock, soil and handwriting samples. We looked at different fibres under a microscope. We all dressed in special suits so we couldn't contaminate the scene. We learnt so much in one day so watch out criminals in Ainsworth!
Please take a look at our 'Forensic Day'.

Diamond Jubilee

 Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

On Friday 1st June we held our Diamond Jubilee Party. All children came dressed as either Royalty or a guest. Please a look at the shows of a fantastic day and fantastic outfits.


Year 5 have been studying the work of the artist Andy Goldsworthy.
They planned living sculptures and selected their own natural materials to create them. On a very warm day we were able to work in teams to produce some fantastic art work.

Well done Year 5!

The school council organised a talent contest in which the whole school could participate. Please click on the shows to see what talent is in our class.

Victorian 2011

Year 5 are immersed in Victorian times during this half term, which culminates in a Victorian Day. We study Victorian History using Primary and Secondary sources focusing on the lives of children. We compare the lives of the rich and poor and use drama to interview children from that time.
We are studying 'Street Child' as a whole class text which tells the story of Jim as he enters the workhouse, then lives on the streets of London before being rescued by Dr Barnardo. The text lends itself to a variety of writing and drama activities exploring the feelings of the characters.
Enjoy Our Slideshow of Yr 5 Dressed as Victorian Children!

Year 5 have created a display of an Autumn tree with their thoughts about Autumn written on the leaves.
