Year 5

Welcome to Year 5
Victorian day - we had a brilliant time at Armley Mills experiencing school life as Victorian children. We found out about their school day and experienced a few punishments too!
John Mee from theatre group Alive and Kicking visited year 5 today. We had a wonderful time creating scenarios and dreaming up wild schemes.

Ripon has its very own Workhouse Museum - well worth a visit on a rainy weekend!

The grim atmosphere of the Workhouse Museum has been carefully maintained in order to give visitors a sense of what life in a Victorian Workhouse could have been.

As part of our 'Lifesavers' lessons we have looked at why we work and what the purpose of working is. We then organised ideas into a diamond nine shape, with the most important reason at the top. I think you will be surprised by their answers!
Today in science we carried out a fact hunt all about metamorphosis, rain prevented us going outside but the year 6 classroom was free and made a great substitute location.
Through our Victorian topic, we are looking at the lives of children working in the mines. A great place to visit is the National Coal Mining Museum in Wakefield, where you can travel down into the old coal mine. Perfect for a weekend activity!

Tiggy Triangles -ask your child about Tiggy Triangles, we used it today to reinforce our vocabulary

We are studying 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty in English, this half term.

'Far From Home' is a companion novel to the novel 'Street Child'. Do encourage your child to read it, if they are enjoying 'Street Child'.

In science today we have performed our first dissection!

Look at our stunning flower dissections, we were able to identify the male and female parts of the flower and name them.
