Year 5 have been getting ready for Easter by creating hats and bonnets!

In Forest School this week, the children whittled their own wands. We were also treated to a hot chocolate and marshmallow's from Mrs. Parker!

In Science, Year 5 came up with their own way to test how exercise affects heart rate. We also found out why.

In Forest School, the children were building shelters. They had to try and keep themselves dry and add different features to make theirs unique!

Year 5 continued their work on the circulatory system by making a working model of the path the blood takes around the body.

Year 5 have been busy at Forest school, they have created hats using natural resources. They have also been creating animals using clay and natural items they have found and then they had to create a shelter for their animal to ensure they stay dry. 

Year 5 have been learning all about the circulatory system in Science. They then created posters to show all the things they had learnt. Then they presented these to the class. Take a look at them below:
