Our Big Question is:
How would you have survived in Medieval times?
It's so wonderful to see all the super learning you are doing at home. Keep working hard Year 5, we are really proud of you.
How can I make a difference to our planet?
The Mysterious Mayans
Year 5 have gone back in time to find out what South America was like 4000 years ago!
We've had a brilliant day learning about the Maya. We've tried on traditional clothing, completed Mayan maths puzzles and shown great team work skills!
Line dancing fun today!
This week we have been researching and debating using our reading and speaking and listening skills. Should we chop down the rainforests? Are we causing climate change? What does Greta Thunberg have to say?
We've been learning about hydraulics and pneumatics! We're using our design and technology skills to create moving rainforest toys.
This week we have been learning about the difference between natural and man made disasters.
Our worship about courage was a roaring success!
Using our football skills to play matches in Year 5.
What is so special about the USA?

Year 5 have had a wonderful time visiting Beacon Park retirement village. We've been demonstrating our school values by showing care in our community.
