Treehouse Theatre - Vikings
Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their Drama workshop with Ben from the Treehouse Theatre company. They all played a part in retelling the history of how the country was ruled during the Anglo-Saxon and Viking period.
Welcome to Year 5!
In Year 5 we are taught by Miss Coupe, Mrs Oswald and Mr Greenley. We are also lucky to have dedicated support staff Mr. Wise (LSA) and Mr. Anderson (HLTA) to help and support us with our learning in and out of class.
We are looking at the circulatory system in Science this term. We have been learning how the lungs take in Oxygen and transfer it into the blood and then how the carbon dioxide gets exhaled from the body. We used balloons and worked on the playground to create a 3D model.
Our creative curriculum topic this term has been North and South America. We have particularly been looking at Mexico and had a go today at creating Mexican nachos! We made out own. Guacamole from avacados and salsa from tomatos and spices before topping them with cheese and melting it. Delicious!
In science this half term we have been learning about reversible and irreversible changes, and what we notice when a change is irreversible. This week we have looked at how heat can affect a substance and proved how a substance changes when heated by baking shortbread. This also linked into our maths work on measures as we had to convert the units of measure for the recipe.
As part of our Health and Wellbeing unit on "Who's in charge?" Year 5 visited the Houses of Parliament for a tour of the buildings and a workshop on law making. We were delighted that our MP, Maria Miller, was able to join us for the part of the day and take our questions too.
