Year Five Visit the Great North Museum
This week Year Five visited the Great North Museum to explore the Egyptian Collection. They completed activities to develop their historical skills and knowledge. When asked for their favourite artefact the children chose the fascinating mummy. As a bonus the children went to see the touring Dippy the Dinosaur and even held some fossilized dinosaur poo.
Our French teacher Madame Smith taught us a lesson today all about changing the determiners in the French language from un/une to le/la. We also practised some vocabulary we need to use when going to a cafe and sang some French songs.
Year 5 Class Liturgy 'Ourselves'
Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended our class liturgy. Our liturgy was about celebrating that we were made in God's likeness and how should celebrate our uniqueness and brilliance. The children read out letters that they had written to remind each other how fabulous they really are and made a liturgical dance to the poem Footsteps in the Sand by Mary Fishback.
The children in Year 5 have been concentrating on Basketball this half term in their P.E. lessons. As you can see from the pictures they have been learning about passing, dribbling and travelling skills.
Christmas Fair Biscuits
We all really enjoyed baking our biscuits that were made to sell at the Christmas Fair. We made Christmas tree biscuits in the Poplars, where we practiced our mixing and weighing skills.
Our Trip to Centre for Life
What an amazing day we had yesterday! The children enjoyed themselves so much at the centre; we went into a real laboratory and experimented with different alkalines and acids where we found out about chemical reactions. We then went ice skating and finally enjoyed an engineering workshop.
Today the children in Year 5 became scientists! As our topic in our Creative Curriculum lessons is Alchemy Island, we observed and decided how mixtures might be separated using filtration, sieving and evaporation.
