Hello and welcome back to the last half term, for many of you it will be the last half term of your Benjamin Hargreaves life, so lets make it a memorable one!


Science Week - 1st week back

Granulated sugar and sugar cubes in bowlsFor the first week back, Class 5 will be investigating what is actually in the food we eat, especially focusing on SUGAR, what foods to avoid and what foods to embrace for our health. We'll be designing posters, producing infographics, writing explanation texts and hopefully presenting an assembly on the danger of too much sugar to the whole school. 




Investigations into dissolving - which temperature of water does sugar dissolve in quicker and why?

Think before you drink! Class 5 weighed out the amount of sugar in each drink! UNBELIEVABLE!

English - Summer Term 2

We will be studying the text 'Cloud Tree Monkeys' and using it as a vehicle to explore the North East region of India, tea plantations, Fairtrade and langur monkeys. 

We will be writing a diary entry, a newspaper report and an explanation text throughout the half term.

As well as consolidating all that we have learnt in KS2, we'll be focusing on statistics and producing data/analysing data and presenting data through bar charts, line graphs and pie charts both in pencil and on spreadsheets. 

The data will partly be from science experiments we will be conduction throughout the half term and partly from the English topic we are covering, as well as our science week on food. 

                                            Our Topic Assembly - Pompeii!   Friday 1st February

Class 5 treated us all to a modern twist on the events of Pompeii last Friday 25th January. The children added to the script, acted and delivered the play all from memory - well done!

          World War 1 Accrington Pal


Class 5 have been reading poetry about World War 1, focusing in particular on Wilfred Owen's protests against the war. The children quickly picked up the figurative speech and vocabulary used in these poems and inspired them to write their own.


Niamh Brotherton proudly brought in the medals that her Great, Great Grandfather was awarded during the war, including the Victoria Cross. We also got to look at his personal diary in which he had written in during the war and even had his clothing measurements in. Sadly, he lost his life during the war and his wife received The Dead Man's Penny. Thankyou Niamh - the children were really wowed by these artefacts! 


Below you will be able to see a selection of our poetry and visit to Oak Hill Cenotaph, along with Niamh's Great Grandad's medal, diary and Dead Mans Penny. 




Class 5 are studying life in the Victorian period and particularly the living and working  conditions of the time for millions of people.
