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.

Year 5 assembly

Last week, Year 5 performed their assembly all about the Black Death to parents and children. It was a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate what we have been learning about and all the children did a fantastic job at learning and presenting their lines.

All of the Year 5 team are very proud of the children.

Becoming scientists!

As part of our new science topic, we are learning to do what REAL scientists do! For our first lesson, in pairs we had to design and carry out our own investigation to measure the force of friction without any guidance from our teachers. There were some really creative ideas and it was great to see such fantastic teamwork and communication skills.

Exploring our time capsules

We have had some time to explore our time capsules in class. Everyone had put such amazing effort into their homework project, and it was lovely to see the range of different personal items everyone had included. Miss Caldwell especially loved seeing all the baby photos!

Year 5’s trip to Hylands

On Tuesday , all of Year 5 were invited to watch a performance of Hylands school production of The Acrobat & The Escapologist, based on the book and film Matilda. It was a fantastic production and the Year 5’s had so many positive comments about it!
