In our rainforest topic this week we have been locating the rainforests of the world using globes and maps.
Today we enjoyed a visit from a photographer for our Aim High week. She brought in lots of different cameras for us to try out and talked about being a photographer. We all had lots of fun and managed to take some really good photos.
During British Values day, year 5 have been looking at British fashion through the decades. they then used these fashions as a starting point to design and make their very own royal wedding outfit.
Year 5 went on an intergalactic journey through all things Space this week at Spaceport in Liverpool. This trip provided the opportunity for children to explore their new topic of Space out of the classroom context.
Whilst there, the children enjoyed 3D shows about what it takes to be an astronaut, an introduction to space by Tim Peake, took a ride on a virtual space roller coaster, measured their weight on several different planets, explored the constellations and extended their knowledge of the planets in our solar system.
Lastly, they launched their own rockets to infinity and beyond!! The class thoroughly enjoyed the trip and lots of hands on learning took place!!
Year 5 has a really special visitor in this week to extend our learning of the Victorian. Mrs Harvey came into our class with lots of artefacts from the Victorian era. She told us lots of information and allowed us to ask lots of questions! We loved it and learned lots! Thank you Mrs Harvey for your time.
