What’s been happening in Year 5?

Green fingers!

To start their new topic ‘Beast Creator’ with a bang, the children have had a great time on a bug hunt.  We collected specimens of invertebrates and viewed them carefully to create scientific drawings of them.  We also carried out geographical fieldwork in order to create our own invertebrate map of the school grounds to help other children to locate minibeasts.  We then spent some time planting herbs and lavender to encourage pollinators to our school grounds! 

Skype a scientist

We have taken part in a skype a scientist session with Karen Adler from Leicester University. We learned all about her work as a microbiologist and her studies into bacteriophages.  It was fantastic and the children completed some amazing work with their new knowledge!
