As part of our Stargazers topic, for Design and Technology we have been designing, making and evaluation a lunar rover, which would be sent to the moon to explore this relatively unknown place. We have had some fantastic designs!
As part of Science week and our pollution experiment, we designed different modes of transport and rated them on how environmentally friendly each vehicle was.
For one of our Science week activities we explored the impact of polluted waters vs non polluted water.
We had 2 different samples and added red graph juice to see what happened to the 2 different liquids. We were shocked to discover the polluted water turned black!
We set a homework project to find out about a planet, star or moon in the solar system. We had some amazing posters. Here is a display of just some of the great projects received in Pine class!
To start off our new topic ‘Stargazers’ we took part in astronaut training to see what it is like to train to be an astronaut.
Some of our training activities included: fitness, first-aid, logic puzzles and Maths puzzles.
This week we took part in Hour of Code, which allowed us to explore different coding games! We had lots of success in a variety of games.
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!
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.
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.
For our assembly, we are learning a Horrible Histories song.
You can use the link to practice the song before next Thursday!
