This week was book week where the whole school focused on the text 'The Day the Crayons Quit' In year 5 we wrote persuasive letters from someone elses point of view. We explored 3D shapes in maths and enjoyed taking part in the whole school spelling bee competition. In science we designed and made foil boats which we thought would hold the most amount of weight.

Spring 2 Week 1
 

This week we started our new text, The Man who walked between the two towers. In Maths we looked at the different methods for multiplying, including decimal numbers. In Science we calculated upthrust and we continued our learning of databases in computing.

Spring 1 week 3 

This week in English we have been enjoying retelling the story of ‘The Time-Slip Scarab’. We worked in groups to add actions to each section to help us to retell the story. We then created freeze frames for each part of the story, thinking about conveying the characters feeling through their facial expressions and body language.

Spring 1 week 2 

This week year 5 took part in an Egyptian theatre workshop day. The workshop focused on many elements of the ancient Egyptian life, the children were engaged in the characters and supported them in solving challenges to remove the curse which had been placed on the explorer. 

They also learnt Egyptian stories from different Egyptian gods and supported them in retelling the stories through actions. We are looking forward to using this in our upcoming work.

Spring 1 week 1 

This week in Science we began our new topic 'Forces'. We looked at the different forces which affect a falling object and used this to investigate how the surface area of an object affects the rate at which it falls. We kept all the variables the same, changing only one variable which was the surface area.

We discovered from the investigation that the smaller the surface area the faster it falls due to less air resistance acting on the object.

 

Autumn 2, Week 6  

This week in science we have been learning all about the phases of the moon, we really enjoyed showing the phases of the moon 🌑 🌒 🌓 with our biscuits. We then drew the phases of the moon and named them.

We have had great fun learning all about common multiples by playing the common multiples game with our partner, we had to roll the dice to find two numbers and then workout the common multiple before crossing it off on our sheet. We then used this knowledge to help us to find factors.

Autumn 2, Week 4  

This week we worked on our narrative writing and wrote our own stories based on the story structure of ‘The Tunnel’ by Athony Browne. We created our story mountains and developed this ideas into paragraphs building and developing our narratives. We used a variety of grammatical features to aid cohesion in our writing.
