Outdoor Learning

Year 5 children had a blast learning about space whilst outdoor learning! They identified how the Earth moves and proved it using shadows and even created planets out of natural materials.

Stardome

Year 5s had a visit from Lincs Star Dome planetarium as an introduction to their topic of Stargazers, where they were wowed by the massive size of the universe around them!

Making flat bread

In preparation for our curriculum evening, we decided to check out the cuisine of the Ancient Egyptians and tried our hands at making flat bread. The recipe was incredibly easy and we all thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the tasting part!

Year 5 Curriculum Evening

On Tuesday evening, we welcomed our parents in to school to look at the amazing learning that we have been doing this term. We have loved our Pharaohs topic and had the opportunity to show our clay canopic jars, mummification posters and our homework projects. 

As well as this, our parents got to try our home-made Egyptian flatbreads, have a go at mummifying a pharaoh and use the iPads to walk through Tutankhamun's tomb.

A great event. Thank you to all of the parents who managed to attend, it was great to see so many of you there!

Outdoor Clay canopic jars

Today, we took our DT learning outside. 

Before this lesson, we designed our own canopic jars based on our research in our history lessons. We learned about how Ancient Egyptians used canopic jars to store the organs of the dead pharaoh.

Our next step in our learning will be to paint our jars and add the finer details using a marker pen. We will then evaluate our final products and show them to our parents at our curriculum evening.
