Today we made some WW1 trenches out of clay and other materials, based on our designs.
The children used their understanding of life in the trenches that they have built up this term so far to add some extra details to their trenches, such as rats and mini diaries!
Techniquest Light Dome Experience
This week, Techniquest brought in their light/ colour dome for us to experience. This was brilliant as it ties on perfectly with our light topic in Science this term. The children experienced the effect of wearing 3D glasses on different types of light (UV and light produced by Hydrogen) along with their understanding of how light travels in straight lines being reinforced in a number of exciting ways!
Year 5 Love to Read!
We really enjoyed our visit to the book fair this week and year 5 enjoyed showing me all of their favourite authors. Good to see you so enthusiastic about books 👏🏻
As part of our Welsh culture week, we tested our culinary skills by making some delicious Welsh cakes to fit the occasion! We used our measuring skills to weigh out the ingredients first. Da iawn pawb! 👨🏻🍳👩🏻🍳
Science Big Question:
'Does the size of torch affect the brightness?'
Year 5 investigate.......results to follow!
Tales from Wales
We had a very important talk from the NSPCC this week, all children listened very carefully and contributed some very grown up ideas.
Health and Well-being Week
This week to kick off health and well-being week, year 5 have participated in a yoga session which has improved our mindfulness today!
We are also busy researching different areas of health and mental health, we will be producing mini books to support and educate other children on this important topic.
First day in Year 5
The children have really enjoyed their first day in year 5 and have really taken on board the high expectations for upper key stage 2 already.
The class really enjoyed some team building activities and growth mindset challenges to kick start the year the right way!
I am looking forward to working with your children this year and watching them continue to grow and develop.
At school we have received a letter from a mystery evacuee who was sent to live in the village during WW2. In the letter, a box containing items that were special to the evacuee is mentioned which was buried somewhere around our school site from before the building of our new school.
Today we went to find the box, an exciting adventure which led us to discover an old, rusty box containing lots of exciting items!
