Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to the Year 5 website page. Here you can find information about our learning so far this year.
Today we had a visit from GSK who ran a workshop which looked at Bacteria and Malaria.
The children were quite shocked at how quickly and easily it is to pass on bacteria and germs.
They were given quite a lot of information about Malaria and found out how fast Malaria can spread to different people from one mosquito!
Odd Socks Day
As part of Anti-Bullying week the children (and teachers!) wore odd socks to school. It was an opportunity for the children to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique! It was a fun day and the children enjoyed wearing their odd socks!
Science and Art!
This week we have been busy making the planets of the solar system. The children have worked well in their teams – designing and then making the planets.
The children enjoyed acting out the story of Abraham and Sarah. They have started to reflect on how these Bible stories can affect their own lives and beliefs.
Design and Technology
To finish off our theme of Robin Hood and Medieval Monarchs the children designed and then made drawstring bags.
They all enjoyed the sewing and figuring out how to ensure their ‘Gold Coins’ wouldn’t fall out!
In Science we have been looking at the Life Cycles of animals and insects. We looked at endangered animals and the children researched and produced posters to promte the wellbeing of these animals.
RE Sources of Revelation
During our lesson on the four Sources of Revelation the children worked hard in their groups to produce some great posters.
