Welcome to the Trumpet Class

We are a class of 32 Year 5 and 6 children who have an exciting year ahead. With the guidance, support and encouragement of Mrs Gaskell, Mrs Edwards, Mrs Fairbrother, our families and each other, we are determined to develop a Growth Mindset enabling us to maximise our potential. 

Our new theme for this half term is "SURVIVAL"! We will be learning survival techniques from Bear Grylls in English lessons and studying survival in the natural world through evolution and inheritance. Keep checking in to learn more in the weeks ahead.

Autumn Term 1

Growth Mindset

We took part in an activity to show the power of self belief and positive affirmation. We were amazed! We are realising that we should not limit ourselves. We know that it is good to make mistakes as they develop our capacity to learn and there isn't anything we can't do, only things we can't do yet!


Year 5 had three mornings to develop their cycling skills and learning to ride on the road safely. After a morning on the playground they were ready to cycle on the road. They were fab.

Health and Fitness

Mrs Williams is joining us for our first lesson on Fridays for a twelve week program to gain a better understanding of good health and fitness. We are especially looking forward to the fitness lessons!

Our trip to Blackpool Zoo

Our visit to Blackpool Zoo enhanced our theme of Survival. We learnt more about variety of species and adaptation by attending a workshop "Animal Ancestry". At this, we also enjoyed some hands on experience including handling a tenrec and getting close to stick insects.

We had a great time visiting the animals. The orang-utan was a favourite and we learnt a lot about Kate, the elephant, from the zookeeper talk. It was really informative and we were able to ask lots of questions. Thank you to all the parents and helpers that made the trip possible.
