To begin the day, Year 5 were introduced to thought provoking videos which described the advantages and disadvantages of an increasingly global world. We then took the idea of ‘Comparative advantage’ and played an innovative game making use of resource tokens (such as gold, coffee beans and electrical products) and currency tokens.
In addition, we created art work to represent the flow of globalisation using watercolour paint, straws, and world map templates

For Year 5’s Launch Day, we immersed ourselves in a range of activities about Spain. Children brushed up on their geographical knowledge so that they were able to locate and identify Spain and its key settlements. In addition we prepared a classic Spanish dish, gazpacho soup, which received a mostly positive reception.
In the afternoon, we had an art session where children imitated the painting style of Pablo Picasso.

Today, the children of year 5 were introduced to our new topic for the half term- the ancient Egyptians. Firstly, we explored important dates of ancient Egypt and compared them to other countries within the same time period. After break time, we recreated ancient Egyptian pyramid wall art which featured the myriad of gods and goddesses which were believed in during the period. After lunch, we acted out Egyptian legends, designed sarcophagi and researched hieroglyphs.
