    Hook Day!

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    We started off our new topic today designing a catapult that will fire a Malteser the furthest! We had great fun and surprised ourselves with how far our Maltesers flew! Our winning design made the Malteser fly 4m and 85cm! - Well done Ellie, Heidi and Olive! Other groups weren't far behind with measurements over 4m. I think they all enjoyed eating the left over Maltesers at the end too! Parents, keep an eye open for the end goal for this theme which you can be apart of too. More information to follow.

    DT Food

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Year 5 designed their own salads based on the legacy of the Greek salad that we investigated a few weeks ago. Children decided on their own ingredients and today, working with their partners, they made their salad. They were amazing! The children worked very well together, using equipment correctly and safely and all enjoyed eating their salads, although some realised that they maybe over catered! The children also evaluated their salads and thought about what they would do to improve their salad next time.

    Achievements and Legacies Theme End Goal

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Today, the children planned and rehearsed their end goal for our theme this term 'Achievements and Legacies'. The children are creating a TV show all about the Achievements and Legacies that they have found out about during this term's theme. Some groups are interviewing each other in character, some are interviewing 'experts' and others are using various methods to put across the information that they have found out about.

    PSHE

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    As part of PSHE this week, the children designed their own simple games using one piece of equipment that they picked from a bag. The children came up with their own games using this equipment and then we discussed the need for rules and why we need rules in the games. This discussion then moved on to where else we need rules and why.

    Maths MOT activity

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Within our MOT session today, the children were doing a maths activity where they had to match the sides of a triangle with the correct answer and fit them all into a given shape. The children found this quite tricky to start with, but with perseverance, they got there in the end! Well done year 5!

    Art

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    During our art session, we were looking at how the Greeks have inspired other time periods with their art. We looked at art from different periods in our history and identified some similarities between the Greeks art and structures with others. We then tried sketching some of these paying attention to detail.
