In Geography, we have been learning about the importance of the water cycle during our topic about rivers.

World Book Day fun

Some of our clay model heads are scary... or is that the children?!

This week has been children's mental health week. We did lots of activities that make us feel great and we made some bunting to show how we keep our minds healthy as well as our bodies.

This week, we added to our knowledge about the Ancient Greeks. Some of us even found out what it was like to wear a Greek breastplate and hold a sword..

For NSPCC Number Day, we made our very own maths board games... and then we got to play them! Best maths lesson ever!

Red-y to raise money for charity? Year 5 are certainly ready!

This week in Year 5M, we have been learning about shape. We each made a fortune teller to help us learn about sides, edges and vertices of 3D shape.

In English, we have been learning about information texts. Who knew that there was so much information about volcanoes?

This week was Armistice Day. We learnt a little about why poppies are used and discussed the meaning of the poem 'In Flanders Fields'.

Just look at the amazing poetry some of our children have written this week. Wow!

This week we met 'Bikers Against Bullying' and even got to sit on their amazing bikes!

We learnt about what blood is made of and made our own! Well, not really, we made a representation of blood. The cheerios and red food coloring were red blood cells. The yellow food colouring, the plasma. We used marshmallows for white blood cells and purple pom poms for platelets. Lastly we added salt to represent the minerals, proteins and vitamins. Ask your children what is the function of each component, you may be surprised at how much they know!

This week, we have been thinking about using repeating patterns in art and have made some of our own zentangle patterns.

Science and creation, conflicting or complimentary? Great question! We will be trying to answer this question in RE this term and be began by looking at the creation story.

That History Bloke, otherwise known as Richard came to visit us and taught us how Egyptians mummified their pharaohs! We had great fun bandaging one another and even tried our hands at some Egyptian hieroglyphs.
