What we ‘saw’ in Year 5 this week

This term, all children in Year 5 have had the opportunity to earn some ‘Specialised Learning Time’ on a Thursday afternoon. This time gives the children the chance to try their hand at a new, creative or fun activity in order to learn new skills.
So far they have explored the art of quilling, undertaken construction tasks with lollipop sticks and art straws, before this week trying out some woodwork. For many, it was the first chance to try out their saw skills!
A few photos of their efforts this half-term are below.

Gears, Levers and Pulleys

Year 5 have been busy investigating gears, levers and pulleys over the last two design technology sessions. Today we had great fun with the Lego sets in order to build simple machines.
