Year5

Our first topic this term was 'To The Stars'. As part of the topic we had a Space Day in which the children came to school dressed as astronauts, aliens, stars, mission control and other space related characters. We studied the relationship between the Earth, Sun and Moon as well as the other planets in our Solar System.

Year5

Perranuthnoe and Kynance have had a fantastic start to the year and have gone back in time to learn about WW2 and The Blitz. We have read and written powerful stories and biographies about heroes of the time. We have even been able to get hands on with evidence and artefacts from the time.

Year5

Science this term has been all about light. Reflection, refraction, transparent and opaque are all terms we are now familiar with. We carried out lots of experiments to test how light travels and the colours it is made of.

Year5

Cryptography has been our computing topic this term. It has linked in really nicely with our World War 2 theme. How were messages sent securely? What techniques are used today? How can we keep our own information safe?

The picture shows the children sending secret messages using semaphore.
