Titanic research

We have begun our Titanic unit by doing research for homework and researching a passenger in class. We hope to write a biography about our passenger after finding out about them. We are using our knowledge of our Anne Frank biography that we wrote earlier in the year.   

Buddy Groups

On Wednesday afternoon the children did some Easter activities in the afternoon in their buddy groups. We all had an Easter egg hunt and then designed our own Easter eggs in our groups. The children worked really hard and had a lot of fun!                      

Year 5 Computing

Last week Mr Perry and Mr Green worked with all the year 5s, learning what makes a computer work. We discussed the main components and then the children set to a pile of old and broken PCs, trying to find the parts we discussed and seeing how a computer is (dis)assembled.

Multiplying
