On Tuesday 5 March, in French , Willow class enjoyed learning about the way Mardi Gras is celebrated in France. Without a doubt, the highlight of the French session has been the preparation of the crêpes (French pancakes) during which the children weighed various ingredients, mixed and whisked to get a lovely batter. Later, this turned into over 70 crêpes that the children were delighted to taste.
Welcome to Year 5!
This term, our topic is Temples, Tombs and Treasures where we will be learning all about ancient Egypt.
Our big question for this term is "what is the significance of the afterlife for the Egyptians?" and we have already been learning lots about the process of mummification as part of our English text "The Story of Tutankhamun."As part of our History topic, we will soon be learning about Egyptian gods and goddesses, the importance of pyramids and we will even be doing some mummifying of our own!
Below are some of the activities from 2017-2018
We have made an awesome strart to the term investigating our Ancient Egyptian topic. Drop in and have a look at our lovely art work or have a read of our fabulous fact files.
In 5AT this week, we have been beginning to look at space as part of our topic ‘To Infinity and Beyond!’
In Art, we have been using Jackson Pollock’s techniques as inspiration to create Solar System scenes.
In Science, we have been discussing different theorist’s views – is the Earth flat or spherical? Next week, we will be writing a letter to a flat Earth theorist, using scientific evidence to try and persuade them that the Earth is spherical!
Finally, in History, we have been learning all about the race between the USA and the USSR to become the first people in space.
We will very soon be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we’ve done and more.
