We had a wonderful time visiting the Ancient Egyptian section of the British Museum. We were amazed to see so many real artefacts.
What a fun science day we have had! Year 5 shared it with Year 3 and had lots of interesting experiments and activities to enjoy. During the first session, half of the children in each class were managers, which meant that they had to teach all the visiting children what to do. In the second session, we swapped roles so that the visitors became the managers of their class activities. Here are some of the photos that our teachers took.
We were very lucky to have a visit from Tony de Saulles, who is the author of the Horrible Science series. Today, he came to teach us about bees because he has a new book called Bee Boy: Clash of the Killer Queens. He showed us how to draw some of his characters and we also had a look at his beekeeping suit. We really enjoyed it because he was very funny and he sang us his Bee Boy song.
If you have passed the Year 5 classrooms recently, you might have noticed our World Book Day displays. We really enjoyed sharing ideas about our favourite books and designing eye-catching posters. Nibbles the Book Monster actually nibbled his way through Class 7's display while Class 8 were busy showcasing their many record-breaking talents. A tornado hit Class 9 which meant that all the characters in their stories became jumbled. Perhaps you can put them back in the right books?

We had a fantastic time enjoying the snow last week. Our playground was like a winter wonderland for us to explore and play in. We were also inspired to create art based on the weather that we were experiencing.
