Our temporary home

As you probably know, we are now in our temporary accomodation on Moderna Industrial estate. But class 5 continue to work hard and make excellent progress! Our literacy text, Pax has stimulated a lot of discussion and brought up a number of philosophical and ethical issues.

Our current topic is Rainforests and children have learned about the diffferent layers from the forest floor to the emergent layer.

We have also continued our work on forces in science including gravity and Sir Isaac Newton. This week we have looked at the effect of friction in the world around us and what life would be like without friction.


This PAX inspired artwork was created for homework! 


What happened next?


Our rainforest display, featuring lots of facts, diagrams and illustrations.


Class 5's extensive research on red foxes prior to reading Pax.

Don't forget our year 5 website Mr Brown's Class. There are loads of links to useful websites - useful and fun!
