Safari Phil and Spiky Dave Visit!

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Spring Term

Year 5 had some very interesting visitors in their classrooms this week! A visit from Safari Phil and Spiky Dave was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The children were given the opportunity to handle a range of exotic animals from South America. As well as handling these animals, the children found out all about their habitats, adaptations and how to protect them.

We are Artists!

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Spring Term

As part of our study on South America , we have been looking at work of artists who base their paintings on rainforests and jungles . The children have been busy mixing their own 'rainforest' colours, creating simple collages and doing observational drawings.

A Taste of South America

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Spring Term

Year 5 children became chefs for a day, when the Classroom Kitchen company came in. All pupils were given the opportunity to help prepare and cook a sweet and savoury dish, both originated from South America. They all had a brilliant time and enjoyed their South American feast to finish.

Thank you for all of your kind donations for the Children in Need charity. It was great to see the children in their own clothes, they'd gone to a great effort.  Y5 enjoyed taking part in some Pudsey themed activities throughout of the day.

Wrap A Mummy!

Bethany Kendall (bethanykendall) on: Autumn Term

In History, Year 5 have been learning about how and why the Egyptian's mummified the dead. They discovered that there are many interesting steps to the mummification process. They finished this learning journey with a spot of mummification role play!
