Year 5

Food For Thought

Leicester University medical students visited Year 5 to discuss various aspects of healthy eating. They investigated the amount of sugar in drinks, healthier ways of snacking (with tasting too) and they discussed the health risks around eating too much sugar and being over- weight. They discussed diabetes, its dangers to everyday health and the causes.

 
 

When the Vikings came to Stokes Wood

The Vikings visited Stokes Wood in the spring term. The children were able to try out the weapons, dress up, play Viking games and role play a battle. I expect the Viking will be back to meet next year’s Y5 pupils in 2021.

 
 

Saint Thomas More visit

Year 5 pupils visited Saint Thomas More Catholic Church as part of their RE curriculum. They met with Year 5 pupils from Saint Thomas More School , who showed them around gave them information and answered their questions. This was an interesting and fun way to learn about the Christian faith. You can spot Father Michael, the Catholic Priest in some of the pictures.

 

Science

Last half term Year 5 learned about forces and how forces are applied to falling objects. This half term Year 5 are learning about classes of animals and their life cycles.

 
 

War Memorials

As part of this topic about World War 2, Year 5 visited the war memorials at County Hall.
The children were able to learn about 2 different memorials, showing how people are remembered in different ways.

 
 

World War 2

Year 5 kick started their year with a trip to Cosby Air Show. The children were able to engage with artifacts and many knowledgeable people which made them feel like they were really in the war!
