This term in Year 5....

During the autumn term, we have been 'Learning Like Leonardo!' As part of our topic on the Renaissance, we have become scientists, mathematicians, engineers and artists.
Our visit to Techniquest inspired us to learn more about flight and forces. We have created our own parachutes, paper planes and helicopters, and have used these in our scientific investigations. We are looking forward to using our findings to design and make model flying machines!

We had great fun learning about Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man drawing. We used our numeracy skills to look at the proportions of our own bodies, and we even drew scale drawings of ourselves by dividing our measurements by 10.

Literacy has been all fun and games! We are learning to write detailed instructions for a board game, and we are now planning on designing our own games.

Our regular visits to Pentrehafod Library have been extremely relaxing and enjoyable. The children have had the opportunity to borrow books and have been involved in lots of creative literacy activities.

We have taken part in Indian dancing lessons and some of us even performed in the Waterfront Museum for Diwali.

Some key moments from last year!!!
