The children have made a fantastic start at the beginning of this new academic year. We have been getting reacquainted, and it has been lovely to see how much they have matured over the last year. There enthusiasm and thirst for learning is still clear and we have enjoyed many new challenges already.
This is our first topic of the year. We began with recapping our geographical knowledge about the continents of the world and the location of Europe.
We then spent an afternoon completing an Ancient Greek Murder Mystery! This was great fun - but very confusing. The clues were misleading and we found it difficult to identify the correct suspect - it could have been all of them!
Come back here soon to find out what we're looking at next!
THE TROJAN WAR - Freeze Frames
We worked in groups to create freeze frames for different parts of the Trojan War.
1. The Greeks arriving for battle.
2. Men hiding inside the wooden horse while the Greeks are pretending to sail away.
3. The Trojans bringing the horse to the gates.
4. The Greeks climbing out at night and letting the army in.
5. The final battle.
CAN YOU TELL WHICH IS WHICH FROM OUR PHOTOS?
Year 5 have begun their first Science topic with Mrs Moore all about Space. They begun with finding out about their prior knowledge and looking for any misconceptions.
We will be linking this science topic with our English and looking at our first class novel of the year 'Cosmic'. All about Liam a boy who is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he’s the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force-defying Cosmic rollercoaster - or to be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn’t all about being a grown-up.
COME BACK SOON TO SEE HOW WE'RE GETTING ON!
