Our topic in science this term is 'Scientists & Inventers'. We have been taking out research on different animals & creating our own David Attenborough style documentaries. We performed these in front of the class using all of our new animal knowledge.
This week, year 5 have taken part in a half hour skipping workshop. We had lots of fun!
Our Topic this term is Walls and Barricades. We have used the atlas to locate famous walls in the world: Berlin Wall, Great Wall of China and Hadrian's Wall. See some of our great work below.
The children loved wearing their pajamas to school today. This afternoon, we settled down to read a bedtime story. Even Ryan took on the teacher role & read to our class!
In ICT we have been experimenting with the LEGO Education programme & creating water barriers relating to our current topic of 'Walls & Barricades'.
Today, we worked in pairs to investigate whether being given 1 million pounds would be a better option that having 1p doubled every day for a month. Ask your child what they found out.
