We've been asking ourselves, what is a mountain?
Originally, we all thought of triangles and pyramids, but we discovered a whole range of different types of mountains and their features.
Can you remember what a plateau mountain is?
Next week, we'll discovered how these and other mountains are formed.

-- Can we fall off the Earth? --
We had to convince Miss Mitchell that the Earth is spherical not flat.
For thousands of years, many people believed that the Earth was flat; after all, when you look at the horizon (where the sky meets the land) it looks that way.
Scientists, astrologers, explorers and even holiday day makers have helped prove that the Earth is spherical. Have a look at some of the evidence we found:

-- New Blog Alert --
With our new blog up and running, we shared lots of ideas about the stories we wanted to share. Check out this special post by two pupils in 5AM, updating you on the best parts of the year so far.
I’ve enjoyed lots of things in Year 5. Especially, on the first day when we were playing lots of games - I loved it. I really like geography. At break ztime, I like when I play with my friends and when we all play with the Lego.
I loved it when Year 5 went to the Theatre: On Wednesday October 24th, we went to the Old Rep Theatre to share our Shakespeare play [A Midsummer Night’s Dream]; it was awesome! Our play was about 30 minutes long, then we had to stay in the dressing room for 30 mins, while the other class were performing their play [Romeo and Juliet]. We had to rehearse and stay at the theatre until 10pm. All of the food made me full. It was a great experience.

It might be grey skies outside, but Year 5 know how to make the most of wet weather playtimes.
Whether it's a good book, lego creations or a bit of extra practise on the ukulele before a lesson with Mr Wood.
-- Are you ready to be scared? --
We've been inspired by the mystery and suspense of Tom's Midnight Garden.
The story, which was written by Phillips Pearce, includes a strange grandfather clock which strikes thirteen, ghostly figures and a garden that disappears in the day.
Would you be brave enough to open the door?
-- Black History Month --
During Black History Month, we celebrated many inspiring people.
We learnt about Maya Angelou, a poet and writer, who fought for equal rights in America.
We wrote our own poems about standing up and being brave, even when people puts us down.
