London Zoo 
Recently, we have kick started our Mayan topic with a visit to London Zoo! Whilst there we explored various areas including the butterfly and rainforest enclosures. These were most useful for our first piece of literacy writing as explorers entering the Mayan civilisation through the rainforest. Enjoy!

Oats in a Boat
Picture 1

During business week we had the task of creating a food product as well as the packaging. We had to present our idea to the one and only, Levi Roots. As a team we decided to make Viking oat cakes, packaged within our hand-made recyclable boats. Mr Roots himself was so impressed with our ideas we won the dreaded Dragon's Den, winning £50 from him. 

We went on to win business week!

Making Tudor houses.
We have been busy being Tudor house designers and makers. We started off by measuring and calculating the amount of wood we needed. We then moved onto using saws to cut our wood, and used the hot glue guns to stick the pieces together. What do you think?

Spanish Cooking 
During Spanish day, we had the opportunity to cook several Spanish tapas dishes. We had a professional cook come in and help us cook our dishes. We were lucky enough to take our food home with us. It tasted delicious!

Filtration 

This week in science we have been filtering impurities found in the River Thames during the Tudor era. We designed our own filter systems using different materials to test if we could purify dirty water. It was an interesting process!

In SMSC we have been focusing on Christianity. Father Stuart from All Saints Church came in to talk to us about suffering within Christianity. We asked him many fascinating questions and we really enjoyed his talk!

Analysing Tudor poo. 

5L took on a disgusting task this week, as we excavated human remains (POO!)

We analysed the poo to find traces of food that would tell us if it came from a poor or rich person.

Tower of London 
Year 5 went to the Tower of London to explore the place where many people were executed in the Tudor times, (I know depressing right?) It was an interesting day!

Absorbency 

During science this week we were researching absorbency. We decided to help poor Edith, (a servant for Henry VIII), to clean up the horrid messes left by Henry VIII. We tested different materials to see which one would be the most useful in helping Edith clean up, (the most absorbent). We tested this in...BLOOD!
