This term Y5 are looking at creation stories and prayers. 


'God created man in his own image' Genesis 1:27

What does this mean? - God is good. Everyone is different but we can all reflect his goodness and are special in many different ways. 

 

Science

Can you feel the force?

We have been learning about forces around us, including gravity. Y5 loved learning about Isaac Newton and his role in discovering gravity and how it affects the planets. We have also carried out lots of different investigations to test gravity, friction, air resistance and water resistance.
