Wow what a week! Busy week with various pieces of learning ongoing, Children in Need day (including our class assembly - well done to the team for being so creative when coming up with it!), and the end of our current dance project!

Super second week in class 5 as things definitely getting into routine. Some superb space learning taking place, a real exploration of the Mayan civilisation, not to mention a superb trip to Winchester Science Centre!
14.09.17 - Winchester Science Centre Visit
Wow - what a super science day! We've explored the effects of space on the body, operated space machinery, taken a trip in and around space and found out a huge amount about all aspects of science! Year 5 have done the school (and the world of science!) proud!
'We all had so much fun learning stuff about space. I loved the planetarium, it was huge and the film was great. The activities were epic too.'
'On Thursday we went to the science museum. We loved controlling the robots and doing space tests. We explored and there was loads of activities and they were very fun too.'
'I loved the mind ball where you strapped a band to your forehead and focused on the ball. I discovered how flexible I am and tested my strength.'
Science heroes at work.
