We have continued exploring our topic of the United Kingdom this week, by investigating the Union Jack. We investigated when the Union Jack was created, what flags are included and how it has changed over the years. Next, we practiced recreating the Union Jack and then designed our own flags.
This week in Forest School, we created famous London landmarks using natural materials. We chose to create either the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament or Tower Bridge.
In Science recently we have explored where electricity comes from, how it was discovered and electrical safety. Last lesson , we investigated the different ways we can make complete circuits.
In Forest School recently, we created the United Kingdom out of natural materials.
As part of our topic, we have been exploring how despite living in the same country, we are all different in various ways. We explored how we all have different likes and dislikes, hobbies, family who live in different countries and different strengths. We also learnt about how our finger prints are also unique to us. In order to investigate our finger prints further, we used ink pads to take our finger prints and created art based on the patterns we found within our prints.
During the last week of term, we explored the key features of instructions. After exploring this style of writing and practising adding time connectives to instructions, we followed the instructions and made our own Christmas trees and stockings.
During our last Forest School lesson, we drew images inspired by the poem ‘Twas the night before Christmas’ by Clement Clarke Moore.
Before the Christmas holidays, we had a great time taking part in the school pantomime. Well done to everyone who took part, especially the Year 5s, who put on an amazing show!
