    DT Ancient Greek Food Tasting

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    We found out about the legacy of Ancient Greek food that we still eat today. Year 5 found out that the Ancient Greeks ate these sorts of foods because they couldn't grow lots of other things because of the rocky terrain that made growing crops tricky. We then had a chance to taste some of these foods, things like feta and goats cheese, olives, figs and we tried pitta bread dipped in humus and olive oil. Some children were pleasantly surprised by the goats cheese and the figs!

    Welcome Back

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Welcome back Year 5! It has been great getting back in the classroom with you all after the unplanned start to the term! I loved seeing your smiles as you came back through the classroom door and finding out all about your holidays. This terms theme is Achievements and Legacies, where we will find out about the achievements and legacies of the Ancient Greeks and within space. I am also looking forward to finding out what year 5's achievements and legacies are going to be throughout this term.

    Art

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    On Friday, we started designing our theme book covers - As our theme is Achievements and legacies, we wanted our covers to represent that. We looked at how to blend colours to give us a good background colour. Any ideas what legacies linked to the Ancient Greeks our covers will end up showing? Our final pieces will follow shortly!

    Science - use modelling to display planets movement in relation to the sun

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    This week in Science we have been recapping the order of the planets and how they orbit the sun. We used a range of materials to create a model to display this and ensured the size and order of the planets were factually correct.

    RE - understand how Sikh's show commitment

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    This week in RE we have been learning the origins of the religion of Sikhism. We also learned about the tradition of Langar and how sikh's devote a their time, possessions and money to make sure people from all religions are looked after. After learning the 5 key principals, year 5 came up with lots of ways they thought they could act as a class that would make themselves and others happy.

    Science - investigate celestial bodies in our solar system

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    Today year 5 have started learning about space. The more we learnt the more questions we had! We discussed the characteristics of stars, planets and moons, then went on to create a model using fruit/sports equipment to demonstrate size differences amongst the planets. After this we created another model of our solar system which helped with ordering the planets from nearest to furthest from the sun.

    English

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    During English today, we looked at some blackout poetry. Children used newspapers to find words they wanted to form a blackout poem linked to our topic on diversity.
