Year 5 had a fabulous treat this week…Katya Balen, author of October October, read aloud to the children via Zoom. It was wonderful and the children got to see one of our favourite authors in person!
Year 5 have been practising their sewing skills in order to make their Anglo-Saxon bags. They are now able to thread a needle, tie a knot and do various stitches such as back stitch and over stitch. We’ve had some great results.
Our topic in year 5 is Forces and this week, the children have been learning about water resistance. They predicted whether certain objects would sink or float and then tested their theory to see if they were right.
