Our wonderful trip to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre where we had our very own guided tour. We then had an exciting drama workshop to supplement our learning about Shakespeare's "The Tempest".

5R have been training in preparation for Sports Day.

Our Science topic of "Circulation" involved studying blood: it's movement round the body, if people had different types of blood and how much there was of it there was in our body. We also examined how exercise affects heart rate. We constructed bar charts and pie charts to present our data, analyse and evaluate our results.

5R had a great educational outing at The Natural History Museum.

For their "Moving People" IPC topic, 5R have explored why people move and studied natural disasters, displacement, migrants and refugees. We have done this through drama, literacy and art

5R have enjoyed developing their scientific enquiry skills through the practical investigations based around Materials and their properties. How can we classify certain materials? What is the most effective way to seperate a mixture? Which changes are reversible an irreversible?

5R Computing - Lego WeDo Video

5R have been using the Lego WeDo kits to make models. They have then used the computer to control the models. Watch this short video to find out what they have been doing.

Our Active "Big" Maths lessons have allowed us to carry out group and class investigations into working out how to get the largest share of chocolate using our knowledge of fractions; working out branches, leaves and twigs on trees using our knowledge of place value!

5R Music, based around the blues, with Mr Bainbridge- our Music specialist.

5R's new Science topic is "Earth and Space". We constructed scale models of the Sun using pairs of compass' and then using a trundle wheel we investigated how far the Sun is away from the Earth. For every metre we walked, that was 1,000,000km in scale. The last photo is only 50metres away, We would have had to have walked another 100metres and way out of the school to see the real scale distance which is 150metres = 150,000,000km!

I am the number 10! 5R were given the task of using all four operations, fractions, decimals and percentages- as well as various resources to come up with the number 10. Which team would find 10 in the most imaginative or difficult way?!

5R produced their own Egyptian art based around the Gods and the different Myths we have been studying.

5R researched Myths from different cultures (China, Native American, Egyptian and Norse) using reference books, netbooks and ipads. They then, in groups, gave a presentation to the rest of the class.

5R spent the afternoon recreating the Greek Myth, "Theseus and the Minotaur" using freeze-frames. This myth tells the story of the brave Prince Theseus, who after hearing of the sacrifice of Athenian children to the evil Minotaur- vows to defeat the half-bull monster! Theseus travels to the kingdom of Crete, ruled by the evil king Minos. With the help of the beautiful Princess Ariadne, Theseus enters the terrifying, twisting Labyrinth and finally defeats the Minotaur once and for all!

Clay Modelling- Year 5 were sculptors for the afternoon, modelling their own Greek Amphora's (urns).

Big Maths; Year 5 were given the task of constructing 2D polygons and a variety of 3D shapes using spaghetti and marshmallows!

In their Science learning Year 5 are looking at Forces. In these photos we went outside and looked at Newton's laws of motion. We used the climbing frame, balls and beanbags to explain the different laws.

Numeracy- ordering decimals on a number line

In our IPC (International Primary Curriculum) Topic, "The Great, the Bold and the Brave" we made Ancient Greek temples out of junk.
