We have been discussing global poverty and looking at the difference between our wants and our needs.
We have been investigating sea defences and built sea walls to try and hold back the tide.
We have been exploring how erosion can change the shape of the coast line over time. We have made and explored caves, arches, stacks and stumps.
We have been supporting World Mental Health Day and the Hello Yellow campaign
We also explored how the huge Sarsen and Bluestones may have been moved.
We have been exploring Stonehenge today and made a plan of our own henge. We then used clay and tools to create our vision in 3D
We have been thinking about how life changed from the mesolithic to the neolithic and we thought life might have become easier. After spending a VERY LONG time using stone age tools (stones) to make flour, we might have changed our minds!
Year 5 have had a wonderful afternoon with Mrs Treadwell making a planet for a display at Tesco. We are delivering it in the morning so if you go shopping please keep an eye out for out handy work and aliens!
We have turned the classroom into a giant science dictionary, finding definitions of words to do with materials and labelling anything we could.
The Gardening Club/Eco council have been busy after school weeding some of the beds and planting bulbs ready for Spring, we can't wait to see how they look next year!
