Celebrating our Spring 2 Topic
Despite the snow days, resulting in a rearrangement of our trip, world book day and most importantly missing vital learning in school, your children have worked extremely hard, and again done me proud, by creating some fantastic work to display!
Eden Camp 20.03.2018
Year 5 had a fantastic time at Eden Camp. Although the sun did only come out when we were going inside the huts and it rained every time we went outside. We were all still smiling though!
A massive thank you to you all for impeccable behaviour, once again you have made our school extremely proud.
Celebrating our Spring 1 Term
I have been extremely proud to display your children’s work that they completed during our Harry Potter topic.
Celebrating our Autumn 2 Term
Year 5 have produced some fantastic artwork using inks. Our diaries from Bess were brilliant and they really got their emotive language across in their writing.
Swatting up on our Science – 10.01.18
We have began our topic of ‘Separating mixtures’ in Science and we have learnt how sieving work and what sieves can be used for. We were pretty grossed out when we found out how sieves were used at sewerage works!
In our investigation we had to separate healthy and unhealthy food, using sieving
Celebrating our Autumn 1 Term
We have produced some fantastic work this term and Mrs Hales has been extremely proud to display it in the classroom and around school. Roll on next half term!
Practical Maths 25.10.17
In Maths, we have been learning how to find the change from a given amount. Mrs Hales gave us a mammoth task to help her plan Archie’s birthday party. We had a list of criteria for the food that we needed to order. We used the Morrisons brochure to find different party food to include at Archie’s birthday party. The problem that we faced was that therewas a certain amount of people to feed (adults and children) and we only had a budget of £60! It was a tricky one, but we all collaborated well and we think we’ve pulled it off!
Alien Egg! 13.10.17
Mrs Hales found a mysterious egg in her garden while on PPA with Miss Cross. They had to contact the police to report what they had found.
Alongside the alien egg was cuttings of plant samples and a water sample. We studied these in our class and decided to write a letter to the Ministry of Alienology, to help us figure out where the egg had come from and why it is here.
Professor Payne, who is from the Ministry of Alienology, came to discuss with us about our discovery. She explained that we are not to be worried and in fact this finding is quite a momentous milestone in Scientific history.
We discussed why aliens might want to invade Earth and why Earth is such a great planet.
Y5 have learnt about what aliens look like and what their different mannerisms couold be.
We weighed the egg to see if it had grown.
We also learnt that aliens communicate through reading minds, so of course we had to have ago for ourselves! Obviously we can all read minds within 30 seconds of trying!
Election Day! 05.10.17
The big day has arrived. We all went into the school hall to cast our votes for our class representative for the Pupil Leadership Team.
Super Solar Science Investigating!
After waiting for what seemed like forever, we finally have a sunny day to complete our Science investigation.
We wanted to find out if the Earth moved?
Every hour, we tood measurements of the length of the shadow of a runders post and also measured the angle of how much the shadow had moved. This is the first time we have used a protractor, so it was quite exciting to take these measurements.
Back in the classroom we wrote up our investigations of what we had found out.
We love problem solving and had lots of fun trying to ‘Crack the Code’!
We used digit cards to help us to crack the code. This allowed us to move the numbers around when we found that they didn’t fit the criteria of the problem.
We found that there were a number of different ways this problem could be achieved.
We tried to find as many different possible ways as we could.
National Space Centre
Year 5H LOVED their visit to the National Space Centre.
