Year 5

Class 5 celebrated World Maths Day on 6th March. We learnt about the radius, diameter and circumference of a circle, and then created some artwork inspired by Wassily Kandinsky.

Inspiration and Invention newsletter

We have been practising our sewing skills by making Christmas baubles. We used templates to cut out our felt pieces, sewed around the edge of the bauble and then stuffed them. The finished products look great!

This half-term, Class 5 have been learning about forces in our science lessons. So far, we have investigated friction, air and water resistance. We dropped different shaped objects into water at the same time to find out if the shape of an object affects how quickly it falls.

In our History lessons, we have been learning about Ancient Civilisations (Sumerians, Indus Valley, Egyptians, Phoenicians and Shang Dynasty). So far, we have learnt about early writing and the first alphabet, and we have learnt about what the civilisations did before money. We played a trade game by acting as buyers and sellers in a busy marketplace, and used tokens to trade for items. We thought carefully about how to earn the most tokens possible.

Splat Circus

Year 5 enjoyed the start of our Mystery and Magic topic- a visit from Splat Circus. We learnt how to balance feathers, and then learnt a scene of a show, which we performed in front of the rest of the school.
