It's Christmas!!! Year 5 made their calendars ready for 2020 using their sketching skills they have been working on and lots of lovely paint!
Year 5 have had the wonderful opportunity to visit Samworth for a PE enrichment day. Group 1 visited Samworth on the 11th December and had a great time taking part in different PE activities alongside other Year 5s from surrounding schools!
Year 5 have been lucky enough to have a gymnastics coach this term. As a treat, we were able to make the most of the school's apparatus to show off our balances and skills.
Year 5 explored the weighing of the heart ceremony - a belief very important to the Ancient Egyptians. We learnt all about the ceremony and their beliefs and used our Art sessions to draw the Gods and Egyptians present!
On possibly the windiest day of the year so far, Year 5 ventured outside to make papyrus!
In order to understand where Ancient Egyptians came in History, we first looked at different periods and events and created a class timeline!
To begin our Ancient Egypitans topic, we first investigated the embalming process and how the Egyptians mummified humans. It was very interesting so we decided to have a go at mummifying an orange!
To end our amazing Mining topic, Year 5 shared their work and their knowledge with their special visitors!
To continue our Mining topic, Year 5 had a visit from the Coal Authority!
Year 5 attemped to make Brigadero (a Brazillian chocolate delicacy) as part of our Harvest Festival celebrations. Things got a little bit chocolatey!
