For the summer term in year 5, the children are really excited about our new topics The Highwayman and The Rainforest. We have already arranged a fantastic visit from 'Rainforest Dave' who will be visiting Year 5 later on this term.
In DT, the children have been finding out about which types of food and drink are healthy. The children enjoyed trying a range of fruit and vegetables before making their own healthy fruit smoothies. Each group's smoothie was then given a score before we decided on the winning smoothie.
As part of our Hydrosphere Topic, the children began to consider the bigger picture of protecting our environment. The children found out that plastic pollution is the biggest threat to our environment and set about researching and writing phenomenal persuasive letters to McDonalds to reduce the use of plastic in their restaurants. The letters were delivered to a local McDonalds restaurant and we are awaiting a reply. Their powers of persuasion were so timely that already, paper straws and cups are being used in some of the bigger restaurants. PEOPLE POWER! Watch this space for more updates and enjoy reading a selection of their fantastic learning.
Year 5 love art. Here is a selection of some fantastic masterpieces we have created so far this year!
Year 5 enjoyed tasting a variety of food that originates from Greece. To conclude our Ancient Greek Topic, the children investigated food and nutrition in Greece and created their own menu which would be fit for a Greek God/Goddess.
The children enjoyed making red Pom-Poms as part of Red Nose Day/Enterprise Day and raised lots of money for charity. These were sold as amazing book marks, critters and key rings.
For World Book Day, the children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters. The children loved being able to DROP. EVERYTHING. AND. READ throughout the day.
In addition to raising funds for charity, we had a lot of fun trying to make the longest line using 2p coins.
