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.
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!
