Y5 – Mythical Creature Making
During ‘Greek Week’, Year 5 learned about ancient Greek mythical beasts. They played top trumps in order to remember the different magical features of each beast, they then decided on how to sort the creatures into different categories (some chose physical features, others chose scariness or magical powers!) After that Year 5 used their expert knowledge to design and make their own mythical beast, using plastic bottles, cartons and paper mache.
The Big London Adventure!
Year 4 and 5 visited the Capital city for a two night residential trip at the end of April. Highlights included: a night walk through central London, from Piccadilly Circus, along the River Thames to the Tower of London; a trip to the Natural History Museum and a river cruise, where they saw many famous London landmarks. Fun and exciting times were had by all, making it worth the long coach journey!
Y5 – Greek Food MasterChef
The Year 5s had a Greek Food Tasting afternoon as an introduction to our Ancient Greece topic. The children tried: houmous, pita bread, black olives, tzatziki and halloumi. They had to score each food according to the food’s presentation, taste and texture. Many of the children were surprised to find that they liked lots of the new flavours, although we all agreed that olives may be an acquired taste!
