Space Day - Year 5
Space Day In the second half of the Autumn term, our topic was Space! As part of this topic, we held a Space day focused on astronaut training! Children came in ready to learn and be instructed as ‘Hanslope Astronaut Recruits’. The aim of the day was to pass all three training areas – fitness, food and CV application. We are happy to announce all passed the tests and are now qualified Hanslope Astronauts! NASA watch out!
Year 5 - Shakespeare Art
Shakespeare Art In the Autumn term our topic focus was on Shakespeare. We looked at his plays, his life and the Globe theatre. As part of this topic, we created some art depicting one of the famous portraits of Shakespeare. However, we gave it a little twist. Children, in groups, got part of the portrait and then brought them together at the end to create one group portrait. Year 5 are very proud of their pieces of work!

Larch and Elm Science Day
Larch and Elm had great fun being scientists and investigating on Tuesday for our Science Day. We had lots of experiments out and children had the day to explore all of them. We explored Non-Newtonian liquid, bubble snakes, sensory painting, marble mazes and balloon zip wires to name a few! The children were very engaged and excited during the day. Larch and Elm were great scientists during science day this week. Thank you to parents who were able to come in and see what we had been doing. For any families who would like to try any of the experiments at home please see science day experiments in the science section of this website.
Maple Class Science Day
Maple Class had fun doing lots of science experiments. We experimented with making slime and making potions. In the Foundation section under Children on the school website you can find the experiments that we did in school. Have a go at doing them at home and let us know how you did!

Elm visit Castle Field
Elm visited Castle Field in Castlethorpe to see the site of the Motte and Bailey castle that once stood there. We looked at where the main parts were and pretended to attack and defend the castle. We saw how difficult it would be for the soldiers to climb the steep hill and ditch.
