This term Year 5 are going on a journey around Europe. We are going to be ‘visiting’ a variety of countries to study the human and physical geography and to gain an insight into the traditional culture including food, dress, language and music. These countries include – Spain, France, Romania and Italy.
A real highlight to start this term was that some of our class had the opportunity to be taught a Science lesson in our new lab by one of the Science teachers from WPSA. We learnt how to separate salt, sawdust and water using different methods including filtration and evaporation. Take a look at our pictures below!
Our AMAZING Planetarium visit
On Thursday 2nd February we had a visit from a mobile Planetarium. It was amazing! We learnt so many interesting facts about the moon and the planets and we even got the chance to take a flight through the Solar System! We have listed some of the facts that we learnt below:
THE SPACE CHAMELEONS!
When we returned from the Christmas holidays, we discovered that we are going to be learning about Space! We are going to be working in teams to complete a range of tasks that will help us to learn more about the Solar System, Space Travel and what it is like to be an astronaut. At the end of term, each team will give a presentation to parents and a teacher from WPSA about what they have learnt; the presentations will be judged and the winners will get to name a star! We also have an exciting visit coming up that will help us to learn even more about the stars above - you will hear more about this very soon.
We have been working hard on our homework - take a look at some of our amazing fact files and artistic creations below!
