Year 5 – October Half Term 2020

In our Geography topic about rivers we created river models and then labelled the features that are found in each course.

Year 5 work hard to earn points for their house team. This half term, Saturn were the winners! Well done to the proud team.

In Science we have been learning how the circulatory system works. We played a game to deliver oxygen and nutrients around the body and to get rid of waste and carbon dioxide.

We have linked PE, English, Art and Science in our topic about Health and Fitness. We have been skipping, learning how to play handball and measuring each other’s fitness in a range of ways. We have also created Artwork that shows movement using different techniques.

We wrote reviews of running shoes – they were very persuasive!

In English we have had many opportunities to work in groups at role play and drama. We particularly enjoyed working on a book called The Journey. We acted in role to consider the feelings and actions of the characters. This prepared us for a follow on writing task.
