Y5 launched their ‘Mountains topic’ by making concept maps. They wrote what they already know about mountains then did some research and added facts.⛰
Y5 have researched, designed and made Viking Shields.
Y5 dressed up in blue to show they are against bullying. We had a fun afternoon playing games with our friends, decorating biscuits in blue and creating a graffiti wall with reminders of how to prevent bullying.
Y5 have worked hard to create their own versions of Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. We have some budding young artists!
Year 5 carried out an investigation to see if they could separate a mixture of sand, salt and water. They discovered that filtering the mixture separated the sand and evaporation separated the salt and water.
Y5 had a great day on their Anglo-Saxons and Viking Trip. They learnt how to make ink and quills, how to weave and how to make coins on a furnace. They also learnt how to handle weapons and re-enacted a battle.
After reading a paragraph from Viking Boy describing the ‘God Temple’, Y5 drew a pencil sketch showing their interpretation of the description.
Year 5 studied different styles of art created in the Viking era and drew their own pencil sketches in a similar style.
We all had a great time dressing up as rockstars and practising our x tables on TT Rock Stars!
Y5 enjoyed choosing and reading new books today at Egremont Library.
Year 5 enjoyed making Viking butter today by shaking cream until it turned into butter. They learnt that Vikings would have done this in a butter churn and it was one of the many ways they preserved food.
