Year 5 have had a very busy Spring term. We have been to Classroom in the Woods where we built dens out of trees, some of us got very muddy in the process, but we thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
In DT we have been looking at structures. We looked at various structures and then worked in groups to build a tall free-standing tower out of straws. We also spent an afternoon designing and creating marble runs. We learnt how to join tubes together in a way that could speed up or slow down the marble.
This term our topic is Ancient Greece. We will be learning about the Olympic games, democracy and some Ancient Greek gods, goddesses, heroes and monsters. In English we will be writing our own myths using what we learn about the monsters and heroes of Ancient Greek mythology.
