    DT - Marble Runs

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    After making their marble runs yesterday, year 5 evaluated each others marble runs. They scored the way it looked, how it worked and how long it took the marble to reach the end. They also offered some great constructive criticism to each other and then they evaluated their own marble runs and thought about how they would improve it if they got to make it again. Well done year 5!

    RE - Can you challenge 'right and wrong'

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    Today Year 5 debating the question 'Is it ok to lie?' They came up with some well thought out points for and against this statement and respectfully listened to their peers. The children agreed that telling a lie when you know you have done wrong is never ok, but they came up with some scenarios where it may be more acceptable. For example, when the lie would save someone's feelings from being hurt or even to save a life. It was a really interesting to hear their points of view and they thought carefully about each response!
