During topic week we were learning about volcanoes. In science we made our own volcanoes using sand and created an explosion with bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. We used red food colouring to represent the lava.
In science we have been learning about life cycles. In class we watched caterpillars go through the process of metamorphosis to turn into butterflies. We then let the butterflies free.

Along with Y6, we went to Haigh Hall where we spent our morning on the low ropes and climbing wall. In the afternoon we went into the woods searching for different bugs and creatures linking into our science topic of life cycles.
In P.E we have been working on our balancing. Our task was to balance with our partner with one of us off the ground.

We had a visit from Matthew Melling (aka The Wigan Runner) who told us about his running journey. He told us how he has persevered and not given up throughout his running challenge and how we can relate this to our learning. In the afternoon Matthew ran a mile with our class.
The Wigan Runner inspired us to run from Wigan to York during our daily mile in the afternoon. We chose York as we have been learning about it's history. Our new challenge is to run from York to London.
