Year 5 LT

Welcome to Year 5 LT!

 

 

As part of Science Week we had a special visitor from The National Marine Aquarium! Dorinda showed us different marine food chains using an underwater VR headset. We then had to search through the contents of a sperm whale's stomach to separate the squid from the plastic! 

We then had the opportunity to dissect squids. As you can tell by the looks on our faces we were both excited and at times disgusted!

We learned lots about how plastic is affecting our food chains and the dangers sea creatures face today.

As part of our Space Science topic, we have been learning about the different phases of the moon, using oreos to help us!

We recently visited the Open Zone at The Word where we got to film our very own E-Safety video. However, we also enjoyed looking at all of the lovely books during our lunch break! Hopefully some of your children have been telling you all about how to stay safe online!

This half term we have been studying the book "Letters from the Lighthouse" by Emma Carroll which is set during the Blitz. We have immersed ourselves in the topic, and have created our own war scrapbooks where we have written diary entries about our experiences of air raids and empathised with children who were evacuated. 

 

Many of us have discussed the topic with members of our family so we have also shared some amazing stories, photographs and letters with our class. Thank you to all of the family members who have helped contribute to our topic!

In 5LT we love our times table challenges! Each week we focus on one of our times tables, play lots of games and take part in times tables speed tests to help with our maths. We love the thrill of watching the timer go down and there's no better feeling than achieving our next sticker!

Our artist for the autumn term is Vincent Van Gogh. Do you like our colourful starry night inspired paintings? They are certainly brightening up the classroom!
