In term 4, Year 5 made Greek pots that depicted an historical event, they all took part in a Greek day and got their photo in the local paper. Another exciting event was a spelling bee competition that was incredibly challenging and went to a tie break situation. In Science they investigated dissolving and carried out an investigation using all sorts of materials.
This term year 5 have been learning about forces in Science. Here, we were learning about how pulleys are used to help transport goods from the top of a mountain. The children created their own pulley systems to transport a basket of grapes from one table to another.
At the end of this term year 5 participated in a first aid lesson. They were all very keen and learnt lots of useful skills.
This term in Science year 5 have been carrying out investigations to explore the changes we go through as we get older. We investigated whether our arm span correlated with our height.
In maths we have been focusing on finding area and perimeter. Here we were using manipulates to help us to find the area of compound shapes.
In science we dissected a flower to help us to name the different parts found
within a plant.
We used our dissected flower to recreate and label our own plants.
In English we have been reading The Iron Man. We acted out different parts
of the story.
