Autumn One - World War Two

This half term we are learning all about World War Two in history. Miss Scott brought in a letter written by her Great Uncle Jack who served in India as a Private. His letter gave us a brilliant insight into the life of a soldier during World War Two - we even read about how he learnt to swim! Watch this space for more of the fabulous learning happening in Year Five!


Autumn One - Science

As part of our topic all about material properties we carried out an investigation to explore the question 'What is the best material to keep Miss Scott's cup of tea warm?' We recorded our results accurately and wrote up our findings to create an amazing display in our school hall!
