World Book Day 2020
Year 5's themes for World Book Day was Roald Dahl and we had lots of amazing costumes including Matilda, Mr Wormwood, Fantastic Mr Fox, OOMPA lOOMPAS and much much more!
In the morning we looked at how to use our 'Matilda Magic' and moved things without our hands. To do this we looked at magnets, air resistance, water resistance and static energy. In the afternoon we red extracts from various Roald Dahl books and then performed some of these in the whole school sharing assembly.
We have been celebrating Maths week by looking at data handling. This included collecting our own data (how tall we are), making graphs and then answering comparative questions about them. We really enjoyed applying the maths skills to real life!
We have had a whole school RE day where we have been learning about the Hindu festival of light- Diwali. In year 5 we have been looking at the main characters in the story of Rama and Sita as well as making our very own Diwali lanterns.
Living things- Exploring Plants
We have been looking at how plants pollinate their seeds and how plants are formed.
We have been looking at the book 'Treason' by Berlie Doherty and did some research in order to find out some more facts about crime and punishment in the Tudor era.
