    Diversity Day!

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    As part of our Passport around the world day, year 5 (and all the other KS2 year groups) joined me in some Bollywood inspired dancing! Well done year 5 - you were fantastic and great fun was had by all, especially as it was followed by Indian snacks - poppadoms, naan bread and mango chutney!

    Our writing unit this term is discussion writing and year 5 were today becoming familiar with our model text about whether it's better to be a child or an adult! We decided to take this outside as it was such a lovely day!

    Maths - Capacity

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Year 5 went outside to find out about capacity. We ordered the containers into size order and then estimated the capacity of each container before checking using measuring jugs. We also looked at the conversions between millilitres and litres.

    History/DT - Stone Age

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    As part of year 5's history this term, we have been finding out about the changes that occurred during the Stone Age and for our DT unit, we have been sewing tunics from the Stone Age times using the over stitch. Some of the children loved them so much, they even wore them home!

    Science - Growing plants

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    As part of our topic on changes, year 5 have planted seeds and are watching to see how they change and grow. Each child is looking after their own seed, deciding when it needs water and when to leave it alone! Lots have already started to grow!

    Science - Life Cycles

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    In year 5, we have been dissecting plants to find and label all of the parts. We put photos in our books of it though as we didn't think the dismantled plants would be very nice in our books!
