What an amazing trip we've had! On Tuesday 10th May, Year 5 travelled to Lotherton Hall to experience life as an evacuee. Mrs Taylor was the lady who looked after us and she was quite scary! Mr Morris was our billeting officer and made sure we got to Lotherton Hall safely. We learned about Morse code, did First Aid training and we even had a wartime sing song in the shelter when there was an air raid siren.
In DT this half term, we have been learning about rationed food and how people in the UK made what was available stretch further. We had a look at different ration recipes and chose to cook pancakes and carrot scones. We used a range of different skills including measuring, grating and manipulating. We tasted our food and the pancakes were delicious! The carrot scones didn't go to plan but Mrs Davis made a fresh batch for us to try on our school trip, which were very yummy.
Our model text this half term is a setting description based on Narnia.
During our P.E. lessons, we have been learning what makes a good balance and using these in our own sequences. We have also been learning how to safely use different apparatus and jump off.
For Children in Need, we dressed up in our favourite fancy dress outfits and brought a £1 donation. We hope you like our outfits!
In our Art lessons we have been improving our use of oil pastels. We have practised many different skills including shading and blending.
In Science we have been learning about Materials and their properties. Some of our children used magnets to find some magnetic items in school.
Year 5 have enjoyed beginning to learn the clarinets this half term. We are also learning how to read music.
Here is this half term's model text. We will be writing our own story openers.
