Year 5 spent the day creating their Moving Animal cam mechanisms. After spending the first part of the day building the cam mechanism, the children then went on to create their animals in their habitats. After completing, two special guests popped in to take a look at their finished creations - which were all absolutely outstanding!

As the country went to the polls in the General Election, the children in Year 5 held an election of their own. They formed parties, choosing names, and discussed policies to include in their manifestos. They presented their manifestos to the whole school and then everybody - staff included - cast their votes in a ballot box. The votes were counted and the winning party was announced. Well done to the Strong Smiggles (Smiles and Giggles) Party!

We learned about the digestive system by simulating what happens inside our bodies when we eat and drink. We crushed different foods and mixed them with orange juice and water. After that, we squeezed the mixture through the leg of a pair of tights. It was messy and smelly but fun.
