Half term information Summer 1 2024

What an amazing half term we have had in Year 5! It was heavily dominated by our Ancient Greece topic including a class assembly from Lacerta all about Greek Gods and Goddesses. In English we studied a variety of Greek myths and the children wrote diary entries, persuasive letters and their own mini-myths. 
Elsewhere in the curriculum, we continued on our maths journey – exploring different types of angles and how these relate to 2D shapes. In Science, we covered the topic of Forces; the importance of Isaac Newton’s discoveries, understanding how resistance is caused as well as investigating different parachute designs. 
The children worked in pairs to create their own authentic Greek papier mâché pottery vases and even designed a net for a trojan horse on purple mash. What an action packed topic!
