Restart a Heart

On Thursday 16th October, year 5 attended the ‘Restart a Heart’ day at North Middlesex hospital. The children learned how to help someone if they go into cardiac arrest and how to perform CPR. We learned the 3 S’s: Safety, Stimulate and Shout for help, and the ABC for resuscitation: Airways, Breathing, Circulation. Thank you  to Belinda Okyere, a Resuscitation practioner from the hospital for giving us this opportunity

Autumn Term

In maths we have been learning about place value. We used counters, dienes and place value charts to help us represent 6 and 7 digit numbers.

In literacy we created freeze frames to imagine a scene in a story.

In science we are learning about forces. We used lolly sticks and play dough to investigate levers. We tested the most effective way of moving heavy loads.
