    Geography - Fieldwork

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    As part of our 'We can be heroes' theme year 5 are going to be using the fieldwork skills that they learnt during the previous theme to investigate a question that they would like to find out about within their local area. They are hoping that with some of them, they may be able to make a small change and become heroes themselves!

    DT - Marble Runs

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    After making their marble runs yesterday, year 5 evaluated each others marble runs. They scored the way it looked, how it worked and how long it took the marble to reach the end. They also offered some great constructive criticism to each other and then they evaluated their own marble runs and thought about how they would improve it if they got to make it again. Well done year 5!

Some groups are investigating Benin food, others are investigating where they live, some are investigating the fall of Benin and others are finding our about the Benin art work that is all over the world and whether it should all be returned to Nigeria where Benin was.
