Summer Term 5
1940's Themed Day - 24th June 2022
Today, the children in Year 5 have taken part in a 1940's themed day. They have learned about the different shelters that were used to keep safe during the blitz, taken part in a morse code treasure hunt learning facts about Bicester during WWII, and experienced an air raid - practising to shelter under the tables with their gas mask boxes each time the siren went off. Take a look at the photos of the children's fabulous costumes and amazing model gardens each with their own Anderson shelters that they have made on our website and Facebook page!
The Lifecycle of Animals - 21.03.22
This term Year 5 are learning about the life cycles of different animals. So far we have researched life cycles of mammals, amphibians and insects. Children have created their own life cycle creations that clearly demonstrate the metamorphosis process. Have a look at their fabulous work here!
