Forces in scienceIn our topic of forces in science, we learnt about gravity and how it pulls objects towards the centre of the Earth.We dropped objects onto our “Earth” (made up of flour with a chocolate crust!) and measured the size of the crater.We concluded that the more mass an object has, the more gravity there is.
Early Islamic civilisationDuring our topic on the early Islamic civilisation, we learnt about the Silk Road and how Baghdad were in a good position meaning they could trade goods with either side.We made our own Silk Road and each group were its own country. We learnt that being on the end was a disadvantage as you could not negotiate goods. The children displayed some excellent negotiation and teamwork skills. You can clearly see which groups won!
Mental Health WeekAs part of Mental Health Week, we took part in a range of activities to understand what well-being is and how we can look after it.Here are some photos of Year 5 playing bingo to get to find out things they have in common with their friends. We also created our own posters to teach others how to look after their well-being.
Year 5 – Art
In Year 5, we studied the work of Yulia Brodskaya, a Russian artist whose work focuses on paper folding. We started off learning about Yulia and looking at examples of her work. Then, we learnt how to fold paper in four ways and practised this by imitating one of her pieces. We then finished off by planning and creating self-portraits in Yulia’s style.
Harry Potter trip!
Year 5 enjoyed a spectacular trip to the Harry Potter studios. This trip was a fun filled, informative day with lots of learning! The children had a Harry Potter studio tour. This experience was very creative and aided pupils learning. We had a workshop which gave an insight into the design process of filmmaking. This gave the children an amazing experience, which positively impacted their learning.
