Year 5 have had some creative homework activities this year and our latest was no exception. The children are studying plant life cycles in Science and were asked to investigate carnivorous plants and then create their own carnivorous plant. The children created some amazing plants with features and special adaptations to enable them to catch bugs or animals. Here are a few of these, though all children should be commended for their efforts.

Not only have we been learning about plant life we have also been visiting the Science Department at AP2 to dissect hearts as part of our  IPC and Science topic. The children had the opportunity to open up a heart and identify the different chambers and blood vessels. Hands on experiences are a really valuable part of learning and this was no exception. The children returned with a much better understanding about how the blood moves through the heart. Year 5 would like to thanks Mr York-Smith for organising this, and his wonderful team who gave up their time to work with our children.
