At Stokes Wood the safeguarding, welfare, physical and emotional well-being of our children and their families are a priority. As such, any concerns which contradict this will be acted on immediately.

Year 5

Henry Moore

In Art, Year 5 children have been studying Henry Moore and recreating their own models. They have then used digital art to impose these onto our school grounds.


The children enjoyed a boxing session where they learnt 2 different types of punching and played games that tested their reactions and quick feet!

Studying forces

In Science, Year 5 pupils have been studying forces. In this lesson, there were investigating how and why different shapes travel through water at different speeds.

Space Centre visit

As part of their Science curriculum, Year 5 pupils visited the Space Centre. As you can see they enjoyed being astronauts as well as experiencing lots of Space related learning.

Go Cycling

As you can see the Year 5 attended a Leicester City School Sports Network RESILIENCE event just before the end of term. Once again we were pleased to take several children who hadn't represented Stokes Wood before. The challenges required them to show effort and persistence, hence the title resilience event. Well done everyone.

Viking visit

A real live Viking visited the Year 5 pupils at Stokes Wood. The visit gave the children the opportunity to learn about Viking life in  real life scenarios, dressing up, using their tools, handling artefacts and playing their games. It was a great way to learn. That chain mail looks very heavy.
