Here is what happened to our experiments after we left them in the sunlight over the holidays!
How did we celebrate the Royal Wedding?
In science we are looking at properties of materials and the changes that can be made. We have changed chocolate into a liquid and found that it is reversible as it turns back into a solid. We have also carried out our own investigations involving evaporation and condensation.
In P.E we are preparing for sports day but we were also pretending to be Anglo-Saxons and Normans!
In R.E we have been reading Noah's Ark. We acted out/freeze framed key bits of the story.
In maths we have been looking at shape. We have been learning about nets and how to make a 3D shapes out of them.
We have started to make Anglo-Saxon bows and arrows! Here are year 5 starting to sand down the wood they got from the school maze!
What do you think we will be making with this pile of wood from the maze?
Stunning Start - The Battle of Hastings!
Did you know that before battle both the Normans and Anglo-Saxons would cheer and create chants? Here's Year 5 having a little go in one of our Creative lessons!
During this week we have been looking at measurements and how to convert from millilitres to litres in maths. Here are year 5 making some potions and measuring accurately to make a 1 litre potion!
