We investigated through models how we get day and night, then had to explain it for this blog for other children. We hope these different different explanations help with your learning too!
Today, Ash told use all about healthy and unhealthy foods and the importance of the food groups we eat.
We worked in teams to complete mini quizzes.
Thank you to all the parents who came to watch our class assembly showcasing this half terms work. We thoroughly enjoyed explaining the importance of the world’s rain forests through drama, dance, art and geographical explanations.
Our class will be represented by our two elected school councillors.
Our class will be represented on the sports council by:
Our reserve councillor for both councils is an important role. To stand in at a drop of a hat requires quick thinking, enthusiasm and excellent communication skills.
We have started to create 3D maps for the 4 continents where tropical rainforests are located. Great team work and perseverance was used from our rainbow skills.
During geography today, we practiced using an atlas to locate the tropical rainforests of the world. Using the index and co-ordinates really helped us to realise that all these rainforests were located near the equator and between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.

Welcome to our class blog. We are really excited to start learning in Year 5! During our first half term we will be learning all about the human life cycle and the rainforests of the world.
We will be making use of our local community by inviting different generations to visit us and explain how their bodies and lifestyles have changes as well as sketching their portraits.
As a class, we will be building on how we like to learn differently. Some of us like to learn using pictures, texts or by moving around so we’ll be learning through all of these styles this year.
Keep your eyes open for our latest news on here!
We are Sycamore!
We had a fantastic morning with James, the Scoot Fit instructor. He showed us how to ride safely while having lots of fun and learning new skills.
We now feel as if we know a lot more about how to protect ourselves from scams and fraud. We have also learned how to dispose of used credit cards and junk mail safely. Do not just put them in the bin! We now know that scamming is not a thing to just ignore. You must be aware and deal with it.
We really enjoyed the workshop about Caitlin being caught out by a fraudster. Solving the case was great fun. We were even able to make up a name for our team of investigators. SCS (Secret Crime Solvers) and Fighting Five were two of the names we chose.
