Autumn Term 2020
Our class teacher is Miss Mugglestone.
Mrs Hunt and Mrs Dalgas are the TAs in Year 5
Year 5 have been enjoying our DT project on moving mechanisms. We have explored how levers, pulleys and gears make different tasks easier. We have used some construction kits to make our own.
Learning outside the classroom week
Year 5 had a wonderful time at Crabtree farm as part of outdoor learning week. We were so fortunate to be able to see the pigs and chickens at their feeding time and interact with the animals. Some of us even saw hens laying their eggs! Afterwards, we enjoyed a scavenger hunt in the woods, finding clues to solve a wildlife-themed mystery. At 11am, we joined in with the rest of the school for our 2-minute silence for Remembrance Day. Later, during our free time, we made dens, bows and arrows and charcoal paintbrushes. Some of us drew the animals, others whittled sticks and others made a fire. At the end we sat around the fire and reflected on how being in nature contributes to our mental wellbeing. What a day!
