Here you will find all of the blog posts from Year 5 and 6  (Griffin Class)

The newest post will appear at the top through to the oldest post at the bottom of the page.

Over the last week in Griffin class, the children have started their biographies about David Attenborough. We have watched clips from biographies and interviews in order to gain a better understanding of who he is and what he has achieved. As part of our Evolution topic in Science, this week the children have completed an investigation looking at birds' beaks. The children used different sized tweezers and spoons to find out how many raisins could be picked up in 10 seconds. Reflecting on this, they thought about which type of beaks would increase chances of survival. In RE, the children have been learning about Salvation and they have looked in depth at the events leading to Jesus' death. They each chose a scene to recreate through their own artwork, these were fantastic! 

Last Friday, all of Griffin class went swimming, this will continue for the remainder of the term. Mrs Poyner and Mr Umney said that all the children worked incredibly hard and had great fun at the same time! 

During Science Week, Year 5/6 completed a heart dissection as part of their Science topic all about ‘The Circulatory System.’ A few of the children found this quite gruesome to begin with but by the end of the lesson they had fully immersed themselves!

They also took part in an activity where they needed to design a create that could survive on Mars. They all looked brilliant!
