Year 5 at Blakesley Hall

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Year 5 visited Blakesley Hall as part of our Princes, Peasants and Pestilence topic. We learned lots about the house and the Tudor way of life. Some of us got to dress up as a range of rich and poor people from 400 years ago.

Would you have liked to live at Blakesley Hall during Tudor Times?

Would you want to be rich or poor?

Check Blakesley Hall website to find out what’s going on just up the road.

Science in 5JS

As part of our topic, Alchemy Island, we became scientists. We tried mixing acids and alkalis, yeast, sugar and water and the best was making plastic by mixing hot milk and vinegar. We then tried making our own solutions by mixing different solute into the solvent of water. We also tried hydrating, dehydrating and rehydrating jelly marbles.

Why not try some of these experiments at home?

Let me know how you get on.

Year 5 Budding Astronauts

As part of our topic Stargazers, we went to The National Space Museum at Leicester. We learnt lots of amazing things, landed on the moon with our astronaut suits and managed to launch a probe to track and intercept a new comet which we called Hobmoor Gazer.

Bug hotel by zulqurnain and Megan and fizzah

Today year 5js and class 5s went on a mission . Not really it was 5js vs 5s . We had to bring in bricks,stones , leaves,twigs,and lots of materials. All together as a class we worked as a team and built a bug hotel .we also went around the field and found lots of other materials. We did this because it is getting cold and we can help them stay warm.

We learnt about Richard Smalbroke, the owner of this house. We also looked at some of their plates and cutlery and learnt about the smells there would have been in the house. In groups we had to match herbal cures to their ailments and we were fortunate to be able to make our own lavender soap and tussie mussies.

If you want to know more then please ask any of our Year 5 experts.
