This is Year 5 and we are called Admirals. Admirals are taught by Mrs Moll and Miss Robinson.
Admirals have had a fun Science Week, we made plastic using warm milk and vinegar! We also inflated balloons using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. We took cuttings from a parent plant and we are trying to create identical plants from this.
We have finished reading Charlotte Web and the children produced some fantastic instructions and letters during Literacy.

Year 5 went to Kidzania on Thursday, the children had a fantastic time learning essential life skills: The importance of working hard, earning money, keeping their money safe, time management and most importantly having fun!
Leading up to our trip the children researched different jobs and looked at what careers they may want in the future.
What a fantastic week!
This week is Anti-Bullying week. The children have been taking ;part in lots of anti-bullying activities across the school. We did a role play activity to explore the differences between 'rude', 'mean', 'bullying' and 'kind'.
In Literacy we have been continuing our lessons on Robin Hood. We compared and contrasted the movie and the book and we also explored character traits.
Our topic this term is North America. The children worked hard together to create information posters about the climates in different places across North America.
