Autumn Term 2017

 

Our first topic in the Autumn term is ‘Groovy Greeks’ where we will find out about life in

Ancient Greece. This topic will begin with a very exciting Ancient Greek murder mystery to solve!

Children will look at everyday life; they will research who the gods were that the Greeks used to worship, Greek architecture, the theatre and the Arts, and the Olympics. We will be closely linking this topic to our lessons in English, DT, Computing and Music. DT will involve designing and sewing puppets based on famous Ancient Greek gods and mythical characters. We will be learning a number of different stitches some of which are very hard. It will all be a lot of fun!

 

After half term, we will focus on finding out about the earth, sun and moon in our science based topic ‘To infinity and beyond!’ Here, we will learn about our solar system and the conditions on other planets. We will rise to the challenge of designing and making our very own battery powered lunar buggies in DT. We are also excited for our school trip.

Autumn 2 - To Infinity and Beyond 

This half term we are learning about the earth, sun and moon.

This topic will be launched by children planning their own mission to Mars, where children will decide what objects they would take on their expedition. We will also be attending The National Science and Media Museum on a school trip.

We had an amazing day out at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford to launch our new topic about Space. We watched a 3D IMAX film about the International Space Station, explored their Wonderlab and looked around some of the other exhibits.The highlight being Tim Peake's spacecraft and we heard how he travelled up to the International Space Station and descended back to earth in it! We were surprised how small it was!

Bikeability training

For British Science Week, we decided to try and make bouncing eggs in Year 5. We boiled the eggs and put them in vinegar for the whole week. On Friday afternoon we took them outside to test them. What a brilliant egg-speriment!!

We will be closely linking this topic to our lessons in English, DT, Computing and Music. In computing, children will research the Ancient Greek gods using the internet and produce a presentation of their findings using Prezi. DT will involve designing and sewing puppets based on famous Ancient Greek gods and mythical characters. It will all be a lot of fun!
