As part of our Science topic, 'Forces' we have been designing and launching bottle rockets! We had lots of fun doing this and learning about the different forces that acted upon the rocket.

In Year 5, we have been learning about colour mixing and blending. We used powder paint to create silhouette paintings. Here we are practising our colour mixing.

The Year Five Mathematics Parents' Session

posted 8 Feb 2018, 03:31 by   [ updated 8 Feb 2018, 03:42 ]

What a fabulous morning we have had in Year Five!  The children had the opportunity to be joined by an adult from home in the second Parents' Session of the academic year.  Parents came in to school to work with their children on a range of Mathematics skills.  The sessions were great fun and it was a pleasure to have so many family members in our classes.

The Peasants are Revolting!

The children had another exciting visit from the History Van today.  This time, they were whisked back in time to 1348 to the outbreak of the Black Death.  They met William and Emma de Lovetot - the Lord and Lady of Hallamshire and were quickly introduced to the harsh living conditions of the peasant population of the time.  They were asked to sign an Oath of Fealty to the King of England, meaning they could be asked to go to war at any time.  It was at this point, the children realised something was not quite as it should be: itching armpits, rings of roses on the hands, coughing and spluttering - the Black Death had arrived!  They discovered the signs and symptoms of the Plague and just how infectious the illness was.  The children were horrified at some of the bizarre cures and quickly realised most were based on either superstition or religious beliefs.  It was a fabulous day, which flew by and we would all like to say a big thank you to Miss Bland for bringing the 1300s to life.
