We've had a busy first half term in Year 5. We've started our new topic about the Ancient Greeks by making Greek theatre masks, we've been trained as play leaders for Keystage 1 and we had a fantastic Science week experimenting with optical illusions, static electricity and stabbing potatoes with straws.
