Year 5 had a great time at We the Curious this week! We went into the planetarium and learnt lots about the Earth, Sun and Moon in our workshop. We then had a little bit of time to explore the rest of the science exhibit.
This half term in Literacy, Year 5 will be immersing themselves within the plastic crisis which is currently facing our planet. We have watched the shocking BBC documentary 'Drowning in Plastic' (a filtered version) and is it safe to say that we are all incredibly motivated to raise awareness and have an impact on our locality with regards to the effect of plastic pollution. This week, we have completed a litter pick around the school grounds and adjacent park. It was unbelievable how much litter we found - 3 big black bags full! This rubbish has now been disposed of or recycled. We shall also be creating emotive posters, writing tweets, information texts and letters.
Year 5 Rock out for Times Tables Rockstars Day!
We thoroughly enjoyed dressing up in our best Rock outfits and taking part in the TTRS challenge.
