During Book Week, we designed and made some wonderful board games with the help of Mrs Hayhoe. We had a good time testing them out on Friday. We also wrote the beginning to our own Sci-Fi stories, designed our own planets, created fact posters about space themed topics and had a go at drawing characters from our book 'Fortunately, the Milk' by Neil Gaiman.
Ancient Greek Olympics
We competed in our very own version of the Ancient Greek Olympics. We all competed in a sprint, shot putt, long distance, long jump and howler throw. We then crowned a female and male winner for each of the events and they received a wonderful olive wreath crown. Everyone competed brilliantly and had a real go.
3D Shape models
In Maths we have been studying the properties of 3D shapes and had a go at making our own. We tried to focus on making different pyramids and prisms.
We had a go at making our our Greek temples from either Lego or Plasticine. We concentrated on choosing either Ionic or Doric columns and making a statue of the god or goddess our temple was designed for.
Our Greek names
Audio Script performance of Theseus and the Minotaur
Welcome to Year 5. We have a fun,challenging but exciting year ahead. Already we have been studying an array of Greek myths ready to write our own, completed our own fitness circuit and begun Greek dancing. In Science experiments this week, we investigated which materials made good thermal insulators.

These were just a few of the wonderful character descriptions about their mythical beasts written in our English lessons.
