Well done Class 5 on reaching the end of half term. We have certainly covered an awful lot this term and your effort levels have been excellent. Personally, I really enjoyed yesterday and the EURO 2021 KS2 competition yesterday and thought your attitude to the whole day was magnificent from start to finish. Please keep an eye out on the PE blog at the start of next half term for the pictures.

We have also worked incredibly hard on our recent topic Mountains, where we have learnt about Edmund Hillary and how different types of mountains are formed. We have also written reports about what life would be like on the mountains and studied and compared different mountain climates around the world.

Homework: Your task over half term is to create your own volcano and make it erupt. You can create it however you like: one idea might be a 2L bottle which you can paper mache. The pictures below may help you with your design. To make it erupt there are two ways I know: one involves adding vinegar to food colouring and bicarbonate of soda. The other involves adding Mentos sweets to Coca-Cola. I look forward to seeing your designs. Please add these along with videos of you blowing it up to seesaw.
