The Moravian Settlement It was an absolute pleasure to take year 5 on their local field trip to The Moravian Settlement. We discussed what it would be like to have lived in the Moravian Settlement in the 1700's and researched how it has changed overtime. Observing animal behaviours Today we researched David Attenborough and how he describes animal behaviours around the world. We ventured onto the school field and observed a range of invertebrates and used a code to note down their behaviours. Science Week - March 2017 This week we celebrated Science week. We learnt about flowering plants and we have conducted a number of fair tests. Additionally, Mr Derbyshire visited our school and he showed us how the Earth has changed over time. We had the opportunity to explore a range of different fossils; we even touched a dinosaurs foot print!

We created prayer flags asking God for guidance and support in this coming academic year and hung them on our special tree in front of the school.

Reading Restaurant 

Year 5 have kicked started the year off by participating in our class reading restaurant. We had a taste of lots of book genres and read lots of blurbs to get us excited to read a range and a variety of books this year. Remember it is essential to read every night and record it in the children's reading diaries.
