Potions in Pendle
What a fantastic start to the year we had in Year 5. Our topic was Potions in Pendle, where the children learnt all about the Pendle Witch Trials and they even had the chance reenact the trial!
In Science, our topic was forces where the children discussed different forces and were able to complete some investigations looking at forces in action.
To end our term, we were lucky enough to visit Gazegill Farm to learn about how food is produced on farms which has led us onto our next topic of........ "Food Footprints"
Take a look at some pictures from the trip below!
Trip to Gazegill Farm
On Thursday 17th October, Year 5 were lucky enough to visit Gazegill Farm in Rimington.
This trip was directly linked to our learning about where our food comes from. This forms part of our new 'Food Footprints' topic.
We were lead around the farm by Suzanne and Mark who showed us all the workings of a real life farm. We loved looking at the pigs, visiting the milking shed and walking the goats (Unicorn and Star).
Have a look at some of the photos from our fun day out:
