In Y5, we have really enjoyed our #whodunnit topic this half term!

We have learnt all about DNA, nature vs nurture and what makes us different.

We had a great trip to the Life Centre where all children extracted DNA from a Kiwi and most enjoyed the 3D motion ride. We have also learnt a cheerleading routine that took lots of practice.

We had a fantastic trip to Seven Stories in Newcastle. This trip allowed us to develop our writing and illustrating skills.

This half term Y5 have been learning about the Tudors (Henry VIII, his wives and their punishments) through our topic Off with Her Head!

We have also looked at author and illustrator Tim Hopgood, who we met at Seven Stories on our trip, he showed us how to draw using simple shapes.

As we got nearer to Christmas, Y5 have had lots of chances to sing. We been carol singing at Sainsburys, North Tees Hospital and at a care home. Alongside lots of other things to prepare for Christmas.

This half-term we have been learning about Mexico in our topic 'Hola Mexico!' We have talked about different cultures; through music, art, food, daily routine and festivals. The children have particularly enjoyed learning about 'The Day of The Dead'. We have also been learning about lots of other things. For example, we are currently working on creating our own picture books- working as authors, illustrator, editors and publishers. We have also been working alongside MFC to improve our reading as a team. 

Everyone Different, Everyone Loved
