The Den

First week back

We have had a great first week in the Lions den! We have spent the week getting to know each other and settling in to Year 5.  We were lucky enough to see the Tour of Britain cycle right past our school on Tuesday, which was amazing! The whole school went outside to cheer the cyclists on. We built on this experience throughout the week. In English we wrote a recount of what happened on the day the Tour of Britain came through Timsbury. In Geography we started to research Barrow-in-Furness, which is stage 6 of the Tour of Britain. We will be exploring the human and physical geography of this area and comparing what we find with a Lourdes ( a stage of the Tour de France) throughout the term. In science we investigated how having a rest between exercise affects how you perform during a time trail. We collected this data and created a graph to display it. Finally, in DT we designed a Lion team jersey!  We ended our amazing week with our Tour of Timsbury, where we had great fun cycling around our very own race track.
