Year 5 have been writing Non-chronological reports about Brazil

Welcome back! We are all ready for our enquiry this term ‘Am I too small to make a difference?’

We have been learning one point perspective in art.

Year 5 had fun making helicopters to learn about air resistance. They flew so well, we didn't think some of them were ever going to come down again!

To hook us into our new enquiry 'How does art change perspectives and opinions?', we created sculptures showing something that represents ourselves.

As part of our enquiry 'Do invasions always result in change?' we visited Perlethorpe Education Centre where we took part in Anglo Saxon and Viking activities.

To start our enquiry - Do invasions always result in change? We took part in an Anglo Saxon and Viking workshop from Dan Tastic Education. We learned lots of interesting facts, handle artefacts and even got to handle a sword!

Our Spring enquiry is here: Do invasions always lead to change? Here's a look at our corridors ready for the enquiry to begin!

Our fantastic learning journey from our Autumn enquiry - Am I too small to make a difference? Some great art work, aspirational writing and lots of geographical knowledge and skills on display!

We are so proud of our narrative writing based on Katherine Randell’s The Explorer. Have a look at our work below, we are extremely proud of our presentation.

As part of our enquiry - Am I too small to make a difference? We visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park where we took part in an endangered animals workshop and were able to actually see real life items that have been confiscated by CITES. We also got to see some of the most amazing animals. We all had a great time and learned lots. Have a look at our pictures below.

As part of our enquiry learning, in art we explored wash and transparency marks and strokes when painting to create these fabulous rainforest scenes.

As part of World Science Day, Year 5 investigated dissolving, identifying materials that were soluble and insoluble
