LEARNING ZONE ...
Science - forces
In Science we have been looking at the force gravity. We have identified what happens when we drop things, from various heights, and which force takes place. We used straws and acted out the force of gravity!
Geography - counties
We have been using atlases to identify the counties in England. We then used our knowledge of North, South, East and West to describe the position of different counties.
Tudors have been our main focus. We have completed biographies on Anne Boleyn and have acted out her beheading!
History - Crimes and Punishments!
Crimes and Punishments has been one of our favourite topics in year 5! We worked in groups to research the many crimes and the punishments given during the Tudor period! Some were really outrageous.
P.E - Tudor dancing
In P.E we are learning new steps towards our Tudor dance. It is so much fun!!
Mathematics - Long Multiplication
In Maths, we have been working hard on our long multiplication. We have been multiplying 5-6 digit numbers by 2-5 digit numbers! We are getting really good with it now.
