Welcome to Year 5!

Ancient Greece

In history, we have been learning about Ancient Greece and how the Greeks influenced modern society.

We learnt about the two main city states, Sparta and Athens, and the differences between the two states. We have also found out the different roles of men and women in society during ancient greek times and the difference in roles for women in Sparta and Athens.

Check back next week after our 'Greek Workshop Day' with Living History Workshops!

As part of our homework challenge, Dan, Halime, Ruby and Sam made Greek bread and honey cake as one of their courses for their Greek menu.

The bread was delicious with dips, and the cake was very sweet!

We also used our multiplication knowledge in a PE circuit. We tallied up our points, then multiplied it by either 4, 6, 7, 8 or 9 to find the total points for that station - it was great fun!

 

Science

This week we have been learning about Earth and Space - it's been out of this world!

Making a scaled model of the solar sytem using ratio, division and measuring.

PE

In PE we have been learning how to play the invasion game netball. We have been practising our different passes including: bounce pass, shoulder pass and chest pass. We have also had to learn how to pivot so that we can pass the ball to our team mates.
