SPRING 1

National Justice Museum

The children had a fantastic day at the National Justice Museum! They took part in a re-enactment of a trial in court, investigated a 'murder' scene, explored the museums, visited the dungeons and 'tried' some Victorian punishments!

MAKING BREAD!

 

Year 5 have done a brilliant job in learning all about bread! They have learnt how the flour is made, tasted different bread, written instructions for making bread, designed logos, created packages and finally made and evaluated their own bread!

Reminders:

  • Parent Workshop on Shared Reading - Tuesday 22nd January at 9:05 - 10:00
  • Trip letters and money to be handed in asap please, for The National Justice Museum (Monday 11th February)
  • Indoor PE will now be on a Monday, due to no swimming on a Wednesday, can we make sure all children have appropriate kit please.

As part of our new topic on Crime and Punishment, the children created a court scene in class. They were brilliant at taking on a variety of roles and at the end had to decide on a suitable punishment for the accused.

CHRISTMAS AMIGO FUN!

AUTUMN 2

This half term, our topic is SPACE

Meteorite and Crater Investigation

After discussing what meteorites were, we carried out an investigation to find out the impact of different sized objects falling in a tray of flour.  We made predictions, carried out a fair test, made observations, recorded the method and based our conclusion on our evidence.

     AUTUMN TERM 1     

Our topic for this half term is WORLD WAR 1.   Our work in reading, writing, history, geography and art all focus on this event.  Our topic had an exciting start with our 'WOW Day' where we listened to the sounds and noises of warfare in the trenches and carried out drama, art work and writing based on it.  We also made remembrance messages and poppies to take to next term.  Our day finished with finding out some WOW facts about WW1 using the internet.  A fun and informative day was had by all!

Separating Trench Water in Science

As part of our science work, we mixed up some trench water to link with our topic of World War 1.  We mixed up water, oil, shrapnel (paper clips), stones (marbles) and soil.  In groups, children planned, predicted and used a variety of resources to separate each component part.
