Year 5 have been having an amazing time becoming historians! They have been using iPads and books to carry out research in order to create a short document based around an enquiry question to do with the Viking invasion!
The enquiry questions include:
-Why did the Vikings want to invade Britain?
-How much fear did the Viking raids cause?
-Were the Vikings all bad?
They have been building the skills of carrying out historical enquiry and using sources as evidence.
Awe. That's what Dr Kathryn Adamson felt when she heard the drip, drip, drip of melting arctic glaciers. The Drip project has used this experience to bring climate change science to young people in Greater Manchester through science-and-art sessions in which Year @Springfield had a leading role! Do you recognise the voices?

Science - Hubble were using the science enquiry strand 'Comparative and Fair Testing' by designing and creating a range of boats using foil. We tested different shapes to see which boats travelled through the water more quickly - this showed that there was less water resistance acting on the boat. We found out that the most streamlined boats were the fastest! The children worked amazingly well in teams demonstrating our 'Together we are a team' school value!
