This week at St Matthias pupils and teachers have been enjoying a week full of science. This term year 5 have been investigating forces.
The three photos below show us investigating how forces affected different toys that we made.
World War I History Man
Year 5 have been fortunate enough to have an expert historian visit our class. He provided us with a fantastic opportunity to find out lots more about World War I. If you want to find out more, click on the link below. This will take you to our class blog.
Happy New Year!
Year 5 would like to wish everyone at St Matthias a very 'Happy New Year'. We are all looking forward to this term, especially our new topic 'Frozen Planet'. We will investigate and produce work on explorers, countries and continents, animals and lots more interesting, ice-related information.
We are approaching the end of the first term, which means the final two weeks of our current topic 'The Victorians'. All of year 5 and 6 took part in reenacting a school day that was typical of the Victorian period. Children were given the opportunity to dress up and work on their three R's.
We would like to say thank you to the parents who came in during the morning session and we hope that you all enjoyed yourselves.
Here are a couple of pictures from the day.
World War I and Remembrance Day
Welcome to year 5's page
Year 5 have made a very positive start to the year. We have taken part in lots of exciting events already, including the harvest festival where we performed an Autumn poem, circus week, a local history trip and most recently some of the class took part in 'bikeability'. It doesn't stop there though, there's even more to come after half term! In November, year 5 will be going on a trip to 'The Black Country Museum'. Our topic for this term is 'The Victorians' and this trip will be a great opportunity for all of us to get a taste of Victorian life first-hand.
