WW2 broadcasting

In topic lessons, Y5 are looking at the events of WW2. On Friday we investigated what the Blackout was, why it was important and how the Blackout impacted everyday life for the public. We were tasked with creating a news broadcast to inform the public about what they must do to prepare their houses for the blackout. We know that television broadcasting was stopped until after the war therefore the public would not have had television broadcasts like the ones we made, however it was fun to pretend! We really enjoyed practicing and performing these broadcasts!


Regional Science Centre

On the 23rd April, Year 5 went to the Regional Science Centre to take part in a mixing and dissolving investigation.  We had to separate a mixture of rock salt and sand.  We did this by filtering and by evaporating the salt solution using a Bunsen burner.

We are looking forward to the next few sessions with Miss Judge.

This half term we are focusing on the Ancient Greeks and we are reading the book ‘Who let the Gods Out?’ by Maz Evans. As part of our English work, we are going to be writing our own legend story, as we have been studying the Legend of the Trojan Horse.

I would love to hear who you believe is a legendary person. This  person could be alive or be somebody that has passed away.

Who are you going to choose? Why?

Mr Bottomley
