Persuasive speeches in Year 5
Year 5 have been writing some persuasive speeches in the role of Ernest Shackleton, the famous Irish Antarctic explorer. During his infamous trip to the Antarctic in 1914, his ship 'Endurance' became stuck in ice and the men had a very long wait before reaching safety. Shackleton had a hard job to motivate his men, and needed to use all of his persuasive powers to keep them going. I'm sure he would have been very impressed by our efforts!
Y5 go bionic
We had a great time in Y5 when the Engineers from Sheffield University came to work with us this term. They told us all about 'Bio-Engineering' and we even had the chance to make our own 'bionic' fingers. Incredible!
In PE this term, Year 5 have been developing their gymnastics skills. This includes both jumping and landing correctly (especially landing!).
