This week Year 5 have been taking part in science week! They have been taking part in a filtration experiment where they used sieves, sand filters and coffee filters to help clean pond water. We will continue this filtration by evaporating the water. In English we have been continuing working on our Shakespeare biographies. In Maths we are adding and subtracting mixed numbers. In Geography we are continuing our research of Stratford-upon-Avon using Digimaps.

This week Year 6 have looked at the role of Sir Cyril Radcliffe in the partition of India, the lawyer who created the new borders. We discussed some of the considerations he would have had to make and the information that would have been useful. With this in mind, we had a go at dividing an imaginary country into sections, providing adequate space and natural resources for different groups of people. We then had to explain our process and the decisions we made.
