During Anti-Bullying Week, children took part in a drama workshop during which they considered different types of bullying and the effects of these on their victims. We thought about what collective bullying is and the role that friends and bystanders can sometimes play.
Cadbury World Visit
Year 5 had a great time on their visit to Cadbury World. They enjoyed an Aztec workshop, found out more about the history of the Cadbury family and got to temper some of their own chocolate. The visit was a great way to consolidate and support the learning they've done over the last term. We also got to eat plenty of chocolate!

Re-enacting the Fall of Tenochtitlan
Children worked collaboratively to plan and perform a short scene about the meeting of Montezuma and Cortez, showing the events that led to the fall of the Aztec Empire.
PE - Inventing Target Games
Children have been working in groups to create their own target game. They have needed to select equipment, decide on the shape and area of their playing field, try out their own skills and explain their rules to others.
Investigating Changing Materials
Children have been learning about reversible and irreversible changes. They have investigated what happens when solutions are formed and wanted to find out if these solutions can be separated. They have recapped solids, liquids and gases from their Y4 science work and have found a practical application for evaporation.
Montezuma's Serpent Charm
Children have been using their observational skills to sketch a piece of Aztec jewellery. They have been critiquing their own and each other's work, giving kind and specific feedback so that they can improve their work. Their next steps will be to paint the charm, mixing colours, tones and shades carefully and using different brush strokes to create depth and texture.
Children worked scientifically to investigate whether there was a pattern between the tastiness of different chocolate bars and their sugar content. They recorded their data in scatter diagrams to see if they could find a correlation.
