Here are a collection of photos from our year so far...
As part of our RE curriculum, studying Christianity, we were welcomed into All Souls Church, which is a local church within our school's community. This gave us chance to learn more about what you would expect to find in a church and how this changes in the run-up to Christmas. Our resident pianist, Sathana, was even able to try her hand at playing the church organ, and she wowed us all with a lovely performance of 'Silent Night'.
We enjoyed making wobblers in our DT workshop with Steph from D&T Primary, using our science knowledge (from Autumn 2) of electric circuits.
As part of our PE unit on gymnastics, we looked at combining balances, shapes, travelling and flight.
Look out soon for photos of our Y5/6 Residential to Robin Wood!
We learned about natural and man-made light sources, and how our planet relies on the sun for light. We investigated how light travels and how we are able to see objects.
We studied different biomes and climate zones, and using maps and globes to look at the locations of these around the world. This linked well to the work we did on Russia in the Autumn term, when we studied biomes like tundra and steppes.
Following on from Spring 1, we are continued our study of WW2, going into more detail about some of the key battles that took place.
We were all totally hooked on our class book, The Boy at the Top of the Mountain, by John Boyne, so we started another class book to understand WW2 from a different perspective, reading 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman. This story looks at the war from the viewpoint of a young Jewish boy, who is escaping from the Nazis; this allowed comparisons between the experiences of the main characters in both stories.
