Sky Poems

 

We created our own poems about the sky. We distilled to look for opportunities to practise new skills such as personification and using figurative language. Here are 3 of our poems:

- Momina

- Mallaika

- Haseem

Grimm's fairy tales

 

We listened to some of the Grimm Brother's Fairy tales such as Rumpelstiltskin and Hansel and Gretel. We recreated different parts of the stories. We got 'lost in the woods' and had to find our way out then made some potions!

Bonfire Night

 

Year 5 had a great time learning about bonfire night and activities which take place around this time of year. We got conkers and made them so we could have conker competitions - we had to work on our aiming technique! We also had a fire and thought about how to be safe on bonfire night - we even had popcorn fireworks! To end the day we went apple bobbing, only one of us managed to get an apple though!

Ancient Egyptian Tablets

 

Year 5 have been working towards creating our own Ancient Egyptian clay tablets this year. We completed a variety of tasks to help us to develop the skills to complete this. This included:

- Researching Egyptian art work

- Exploring clay skills using plasticine

- Designing our tablet

- Creating a prototype out of plasticine

- Reflecting 

- Making our final tablet in clay

- Painting the tablet

 

Here are some pictures of our journey.

Ancient Egypt

 

Throughout this half term we have studied the Ancient Egyptian period. Four members of our year group created a green screen to share the information we have found out. We hope this helps you to learn more about the Ancient Egyptians!

Leeds City Museum

 

 

To develop our understanding of the Ancient Egyptian era, we went to the Leeds City Museum. We explored the museum and took part in an Ancient Egyptian workshop where we looked at Egyptian artefacts, made our own amulets, mummified a body and even saw a real life mummy!

 

We had an amazing time - here are some of our pictures:

The General - Information Text

 

While reading 'The General' we found out a lot of information about General Jodhpur. We used this to create an information test. Here are two readings of our information texts.

Separating Solids

 

To begin our learning around the properties of materials, we looked at solids, liquids and gases. We began by separating different solids from each other: sand from cornflakes, sugar from peas, rice from paper clips and flour from raisins. We decided which equipment would be best to help us to separate these materials (colanders, sieves and magnets). We looked at the materials and discussed their properties (magnetic, small, flow etc) which helped us to choose the correct equipment. 

Here is how we got on:

Year 5 Archaeologists!

 

We learned how to become an archaeologist! We used sieves, trowels and gloves to dig for artefacts. We found lots of replica artefacts from Ancient Egypt. We used our noticing muscles to see what they told us about Ancient Egypt.
