Year 5 were transported back in time (and to Orpington) yesterday to spend the day as archaeologists at a real-life excavation of a Roman Villa. The classes were able to find out about the discovery of the site and explore what remains of what was once a farmhouse. They also had the opportunity to create mosaics, sketch genuine artifacts from the site, try brass-rubbing and dress in Roman clothes.
Today, we went on a boat cruise down the Thames.
We travelled from Greenwich all the way to Westminster Pier, where we disembarked and had lunch.
Along the way, we saw so many landmarks and went under lots of bridges.
Year 5 fully embraced the laws of physics today as they headed to Crystal Palace Park to learn about the Physics of the funfair. By being thrown around on waltzers and dodgems, and working their way through the Crazy House, 5C experienced all of the forces we have been talking about in class, and looked in more depth at the rides when they returned back to school.
Today, we visited the Horniman Museum to look for lots of different types of birds to help us with our work in Art.
We took the 185 bus all the way to the museum.
We found lots of different animals to look at. We were amazed by them all. We sketched some of our favourite birds. We looked at them very carefully and took our time so we could include lots of fine detail in our drawing.
Then, it was time for lunch. Yum!
Afterthat, we found a little farm in the park.
Then, we found some musical instruments and a big bird!
We also found some signs of Spring in the gardens!
Daffodils and Daisies!
We had a brilliant day! A big thank you to our adult helpers who came along with us. We couldn’t of done it without you!!
