Welcome to Year 5
The year began with 5H meeting their new class pets - crickets. We enjoy watching them in their tank, feeding them fruit and asking lots of questions about them. I wonder what weird and wonderful creatures we might meet next?
Beast Creator Workshop
Thank you to all the parents / family who joined us for our workshop this week. There was a lovely atmosphere in the room and it was great to see you having as much fun as the children.
Smoothie Bike Workshop
Today we learnt all about healthy living and tested our knowledge of delicious fruit before making our own smoothies - using pedal power. It was great fun.
Birmingham University Astronomical Society
We had an amazing workshop today from a third year student at Birmingham University. She taught us some amazing facts about our solar system.
Today our parents joined us for a fun reading breakfast. We used our inference and deduction skills and ate lots of yummy croissant.
To end our space topic we built and launched our own rockets using plastic bottles and a football pump.
Pharaohs Parent Workshop
We enjoyed working with our parents to make an Egyptian Sarcophogus and they quite liked getting messy too.
In science this week, we collected samples from around the school building. We then swabbed our samples across agar jelly in a petri dish and left them to see what developed. You will never guess which samples led to the best bacteria.
Plague, Pestilence and Princes Workshop
Today we made posies and rats with our parents - do you know how they are both linked to the plague?
