First we began with a parade around the field.

After warming up, we all joined in athletics events including sprints, long distance, relays, throwing and jumping.

Thank you to the helpers and Mrs. Jepson who helped it all run so smoothly.

Congratulations to Jericho.

We all had lots of fun!

Y5 have a Viking Visitor

By History, Year 5

Today, Year 5 had a visit from a Viking.  He told us that the name ‘Viking’ is really a job description. We looked at lots of artefacts and used evidence to decide what they were made of and what they might have been used for.

Strengthening Shapes in Design Technology

By Design Technology, Year 5

Last week in design technology, we learned that triangles are stronger shapes than squares.  Today we learned how to make shapes stronger by adding card triangles. An ‘L’ joint allows two pieces of wood to be joined at right angles. ‘L’ joints are used to make the corners of rectangular frames. Some people also made square frames or ‘T’ joints using lolly sticks.

Mummification in Year 5

By History, Year 5

Year 5 began their work on the Ancient Egyptians by finding out more about what Ancient Egyptian people believed about the afterlife.

It was very important to ancient Egyptian religious beliefs that the human body was preserved. A method of artificial preservation, called mummification was developed by the ancient Egyptians. Mummification was a complicated and lengthy process which lasted up to 70 days.

We developed our understanding of the process using research and hands on experience to write our own instructions.
