Year 5

In Science Year 5 have been looking at the properties of materials, the children created their own experiments to investigate which materials would dissolve. 

Today was home learning presentation day and as always the children did not disappoint, this afternoon we have had artwork, information sheets, posters, models, power point presentations and even a video! We can't wait until Wednesday when we get to see the remaining projects. 

For his home learning Robertson created this amazing video about Climate Change, well done Robertson!

In class we have just finished our latest DT unit of work, designing and creating our own steady hand games. The children were great at using their Scientific understanding of electricity to create the circuits in order to make the game work. We had great fun trying each other's games out although some were definitely more challenging than others!

In Science we have been investigating the properties of different materials. Last week we carried out an experiment to find out which materials were the best thermal insulators. 

In class we have been designing and making our own stuffed toys. The children have learnt how to use a blanket stitch and running stitch and have then used these skills to produce their toys. Well done Year 5, you impressed us all with your sewing and if a button falls off your uniform you will all know what to do now! 

Well Being Wednesday In Year 5

Wednesday 3rd March 2021

On Wednesday 3rd March we had a Well Being day in class where we found ways to learn whilst also taking a break from the smartboard and our other devices and getting in touch with our creative side.

We had a challenge to see which team could make the highest tower using spaghetti and tape, the winners of this were Zac, Mohamad and Britallia with their tower which measured 62cm! 

We then made sock animals using our spare odd socks from home. 

The children at home also had enjoyed Well Being Wednesday and created some fantastic pieces of creative work, went outside and enjoyed the garden, took part in physical activities, baking and lots more. 

Here a just a few photos of what we got up to in class. 

Year 5 enjoying their Christmas Dinner and then party time!!! Covid 2020 style anyway!!!

In our History topic we learnt about the story of the worry dolls. After we had written our own version of the story we then made our own worry dolls. 

This week in Year 5 we have concluded our Scientific Enquiry looking at the effect different drinks can have on eggshells (used to represent our teeth).

We were very surprised by the results but also very happy to finally get rid of the week old milk from our classroom. 

In Year 5 the children have been learning about South America and the Amazon rainforest. As part of our Art work the children designed and made their own headdresses for the Rio de Janeiro carnival, we even had a dance in the classroom. 

Linked to our topic on South America the children delivered their home learning projects which were fantastic. We had quite a few children this year bringing in food they had made at home, as you can imagine this was a resounding success with the rest of the class. 

In Science we have been learning about Electricity, the children really enjoyed investigating different circuits and trying to make the bulb light. 

To celebrate Bonfire night the children made some beautiful firework pictures using oil pastels.
