Today, 5R had a wild time on the rodeo bull as a hook for our new topic ‘Is Spain just for the holidays?’
As a hook for our new topic, 5R spent their morning around some creepy crawlers! They observed the behaviours of locusts, grasshoppers, beetles, worms and crickets and completed observational drawings. This links in to our new topic ‘Evolution and Inheritance’.

Today, the children had a visit from the science circus!
They watched some excellent tricks involving balancing, riding a unicycle, fire eating, juggling and many more. They learned about the forces involved in each of these tricks and what it takes to be a good scientist; fair and repeat testing, creating a hypothesis, observations etc.
The children had a go at balancing a peacock feather on various parts of their body and balancing spinning plates.
The children in 5R visited Spaceport where they experienced life beyond the stars. They whizzed through space on an interactive simulator ride and became fully immersed in other planets through a space dome show.
Thank you to everybody who contributed to this trip for making this possible.
This week, 5R have been creating papier-mâché masks of different characters from their Theseus and the Minotaur playscript. I can’t wait to see how they turn out!
5R became scientists!
Today, the children in 5R became scientists in Co-op Academy North Manchester. They used a lots of scientific apparatus and methods to separate rock, sand and salt. The children behaved so well and were incredibly safe during the session - well done everyone!
Mythical beast creation!
In year 5, the children are learning about Greek myths and legends. After reading a variety of myths, the children were given their opportunity today to create their own mythical beast as a villain in their writing. They labelled their beast’s strengths and weaknesses and gave it a name. Please see the above pictures.
