Thank you so much to Aine for putting her own money towards buying the class a collection of The Treehouse books. As part of her role as class librarian, Aine noticed that lots of pupils were enjoying the Treehouse series so she decided to use some of her pocket money to buy a few extra books for the class. What an amazing act of kindness, thank you Aine.
States of Matter
In Science on Monday, pupils investigated soluble materials. They had fun playing with oozing oobleck and pre-planned their observations and what would change or stay the same for each experiment to keep the test fair.
Is there life on Mars?
On Tuesday, Year 5 pupils took part in a workshop to investigate whether there was life on Mars. After taking part in a lesson on what life on other planets would be like and finding out a little bit about the current Perseverance mission, we did our own practical experiment using "space soil" to find out what life really needs.
In our Religious Studies this term we have been finding out about the Jewish faith and this week we made comparisons between the festival of Passover with the Christian Easter Story. One feature of the story of Passover, is how the Israelites left Egypt with such haste that they didn't have time to let their bread rise so they had to use unleavened bread.
We had great fun in the forest school on Wednesday having a go at making our own unleavened bread and, to my huge surprise, it seemed to be quite a hit! Pupils got a super fire going and we made hot chocolate, sang a campfire song and enjoyed our unleavened bread on a stick.
Well done everyone for a super week, you have worked incredibly hard and you all deserve a huge rest. We look forward to seeing you again for the summer term.
