Number Day!

As part of Number Day, in Year 5 we looked at pentominoes (a shape made by exactly 5 connecting squares). We explored how many there are in total (there are 12!)

We then had a go at turning the 12 pentominoes back into a rectangle, which took lots of resilience but many children managed it!

Exploring dissolving

As part of our Science topic of ‘being real scientists’, we have looked at dissolving. The children had to design an experiment to test if fizzer sweets will dissolve quicker in hot or cold water.
