Toilet twinning
Thank you to everyone who helped Year 5 to raise over £240 for the Toilet Twinning charity. The photograph of the school toilet block in Pakistan that the money we raised has contributed to is on display in the school reception area. 
Year 5 recently visited York Minster together with Year 6. What a lot we all learned!

Year 5 Visit to Read School, Drax.

Year 5 have been writing non-chronological reports about river creatures.

Here are some of our favourite facts ...

 

Swans live in cities and countryside. Interestingly, their sleep standing on one leg or whilst floating on water with their head tucked under their wing - Zara

 

Kingfishers usually begin breeding in February - Sophie

 

A Yellow Spotted River Turtle's gender can often be deciphered by the colour of their chins!! Females have orange or red chins; males have black chins - James

 

Capybaras are the largest rodents in the world and can start to have babies as early as 19 months age - Lily

 

The otter population of the world is 150,000 - 300,000 - that's a lot of otters!! - Jake

 

Mink are semiaquatic mammals native to North America - Grace

 

Escrick's Got Talent

 

On Friday 12th May, Year 5 held a talent show in aid of the charity toilettwinning.org. We enjoyed watching a range of performances, including dancing, singing, magic, football skills, one-handed Rubik's Cube solving and some fabulous gymnastics. We were particularly impressed by some of our youngest children performing solo to the school! Escrick has so much talent that there wasn't time for everyone that wanted to perform to have their chance on Friday, so we will be watching the last few acts on Thursday.

Well done to our Year 5s who organised the show - they have learnt a lot about planning and organisation from the experience! We raised just over £73 from entry fees and an after school collection in the playground, so thank you to everyone who took part and donated. The aim of our fundraising is to raise enough money to pay for a toilet block to be built at a school in a developing country. We are now only about £40 away from our target, and hope to raise the rest at our Cake Bake Sale on the last Friday of half-term.

More Talent Show photographs will be on display outside Maple Classroom soon.
