Year 5 have been investigating gases. Because many gases are invisible, we have been experimenting with equipment to find ways to prove that air exists. We filled bags with air, created pressure and sounds, weighed air, created bubbles and used air as a pushing force.

To Kick off our topic on Greece, Year 5 had a Greek WOW day. We dressed in togas, tasted Greek food, created Greek vase paintings and even tried some Greek dancing. We have shared some images and some videos below. What was your favourite part of the day Year 5?

Year 5 are studying explanation texts and have started to create a text map and created actions for an explanation text about trolls. Using images and actions to memorise a text helps with language when you come to write your own explanation text.
In groups, Year 5 were each given a paragraph to text map and memorise. We would like you to continue this at home.
Who can memorise their paragraph?
Who can memorise the whole text?
