This term Year 5 have been looking at World War One and using the story War Horse by Michael Morpurgo to write action scenes. We have also written War Poetry, based on In Flanders Fields. Here is some of our learning from this topic.
For Children in Need this year, we wore our pajamas to school! In the afternoon we got to host the Pufferfish (Mrs Argrave's class) and had fun sharing board games with the younger children.
It was wonderful to see how well the children from both classes taught each other new games and helped everyone get involved and have a good time.
This term, as part of our Materials topic in Science, we explored mixtures and solutions and how they can be separated. We were challenged to use a range of resources, including funnels, filter paper, magnets and sieves, to seperate as many different materials as possible from a mixture. This challenged our team work skills and our understanding of the properties of materials.
