Investigating air resistance
Thursday 13th December 2018
We have been learning about forces in our Science topic recently and today we were investigating the effects of air resistance. We investigated using different materials for our Lego sky divers parachute and we found that the safest material to use would be a lighter material as it allows the sky diver to fall to the ground slowly! Good work Year 5!!
5S's Amazing Mathematicians!
Thursday 11th October 2018
Some our our fantastic children in 5S have been displaying their brilliant understanding of number relationships today. We have been looking at factor pairs and commutativity in our Maths lessons and some of us were working with counters and multi-link cubes to visually show our understanding of factors. Well done!
Super Solar Systems!
Tuesday 9th October 2018
We are currently exploring the topic of Earth and Space in our Science lessons this half term and we are loving learning all about other planets as well as our own. This week, we were thinking about the order of the planets in our Solar System in relation to the sun. We learnt a fun new song which taught us the order of the planets and we even made our own models of the Solar System to show we understand the difference in sizes between each planet.
Although things got a little messy - we had such fun!!
