Year 5

What a half term we have had in year 5! To kick things off we travelled back in time to the Victorian era where all of the children were arrested! Their punishments included transportation to Australia.

We heard from young children about their experiences of life in reformatory school and prisons. We learnt all about Queen Victoria and her life making interesting crown shaped booklets to display our knowledge. At Milton Mount we are lucky to have a large collection of replica Victorian artifacts which the children  explored, drew and wrote about. And even better than this Mrs. Swinson brought her own collection of genuine Victorian memorabilia including a bed  warming pan and a sewing machine. In addition we have learned about the industrial revolution and workhouses.

What We Have Been Up To

Here you will find all the exciting things we have been up to recently.

PE

In PE the children have learned about basketball and gymnastics ending the half term with a hip hop dance workshop which-judging by the smiles on their faces - the children really enjoyed.

 

Science

Science has been really exciting this half term. We finished off our learning about forces and moved on our new topic Properties of  Materials. Ask your children how they would separate different   mixtures, for example rice and salt, sugar and water, water and sand. They should also be able to tell you the difference between melting and dissolving and explain conductors and insulators.
