WELCOME TO YEAR 5!
Autumn Term 2023:
We have been working very hard in year 5 and we are proud of our learning. Here are a few things that we have been doing:
In Science we have continued to learn about properties of materials. We have enjoyed working scientifically by carrying out a number of different experiments and investigations, making solutions and helping our friend MArv decide which material will help keep the drinks warm in his cafe!
In History we have been learning about the Roman invasion of AD43 and its impact on Britain. We have used our historical skills to act as advisors to Emperor Claudius and we became Celtic spies to find out about the Roman army. We are currently learning about Boudicca and her rebellion and preparing for our Roman assembly.
Our Geography learning has been around the theme of Roman Britain. We used our mapping skills to find out about the Roman empire, Celtic tribes and Roman towns. We have learned how Roman towns emerged, their features and how they compared to Celtic hill forts.
In computing we have continued to explore Scratch Junior. We have designed and made our own maze games and practised writing and debugging our own algorithms.
We have been perfecting our French pronunciation, learning how to say French sounds correctly in words.
In Music with Mr Nield we have been exploring dynamic and how this affects our singing and playing. We have also been using our learning of the solar system to compose our own star percussion.
