Our new topic is ‘Civilised’. We will be learning about the Ancient civilisation of Baghdad and finding out just what we might have learnt from this culture, as well as what it means to be a round city. We will also be learning about the parts of plants and the life cycles of mammals, amphibians, insects and birds. We will be creating press print images in Art.
Previously, we have learnt about World War 1, electricity, Variation and Inheritance, and compared Britain with France and Brazil.
Please see some pictures below of our World War 1 work.
In April, we went to Moat Mount for our residential trip:
On the 3rd to 5th April, the Year 5 & 6’s from St Giles’ Primary School went to Moat Mount in Mill Hill. We did many fun activities; archery, an obstacle course, orienteering and more.
Despite the weather, which was not the best, we had plenty of fun doing activities until 5pm, then we had our dinner and fun in our rooms with our friends.
One of the best things about Moat Mount was the wildlife, we saw herons, squirrels and rabbits, we were told that there was a woodpecker too! The lake was so clear that the trees were reflected in the water. It was so pretty; we took some amazing photos with our cameras!
One of the leaders had hurt their foot, so we couldn’t do the aerial runway, everyone was obviously disappointed, but Miss Bell, Mrs Johnson and Mrs Thrussell came up with a good alternative; have a bonfire! It was Olivia’s birthday so we made smores from roasting marshmallows and putting digestive biscuits on top, she got the first one. We all sang Happy Birthday, had birthday cake and hot chocolate.
