5.12.19 This week we tested water resistance using play doh in different shapes. We also tested Gravity, water and air resistance with our Viking longboats on the water.

27.11.19 Air resistance investigation

Still image for this video
During our science topic of forces, we looked at air resistance. We were challenged with making a parachute for an egg! We used maths measurement and design and technology skills to design and create our parachutes in groups. We then took it in turns to drop it from a height. We discovered that the larger the area of the parachute, the more air resistance it creates, causing the egg to fall slower. We even had two out of six eggs land without smashing! Watch our slow motion video for some of the action.

5-11-19 We role played predictions on how our main character escapes peril in our Viking text. We had a range of ideas on how Gunnar could break free from his chains and captors!

We performed Livin’ on a prayer to our audience. We even played air guitar. Take a look...

13-09-19 check out our amazing costumes for Roald Dahl day. We had the best time learning and reading more on the BFG, our current class book.

Welcome back to Autumn term!

 

This term Year 5 will be learning all about the Vicious Vikings! We will be linking English, Art, D&T and Geography to our topic when we learn about who they were and where they came from.

 

This half term our Science topic is all about Space! We will learn the planets in our solar system, how the sun, earth and moon orbit one another and the various phases of the moon.

 

We are really looking forward to learning new songs in Music, Religious stories in RE and how to look after our health and wellbeing in PSHE. Computing will be on E-Safety and we will also be practicing our maths skills using Sumdog and Times table rockstars once more.

 

Here's to a great half term! Keep checking our page for updates on what we have been up to!
