We have become fraction, decimal and percentage experts! Here we are convincing each other that 22/4 = 5½!
We have been exploring how to test our hypotheses (ideas) scientifically. We planned an investigation into air resistance, carried out fair test and then drew conclusions. Here we are as budding scientists!
Turquoise class have been sampling fruit from around the world, so far black grapes and pineapple are the most popular. Dates and lychees have come in last!
Thanks to Mrs Taylor, the whole of year five won tickets to visit Shrek’s adventure! We had an amazing time meeting the characters and travelling around Far, Far Away. Here we are celebrating our return to London with Shrek himself!
In Science we have been investigating materials. This week we were learning about dissolving. The children had to investigate whether skittles would dissolve in a range of different liquids. We found our results very interesting and the investigation allowed children to construct a range of different questions about different materials.
In Computing, we have been looking at communication and signalling. Last week we investigated semaphores, and this week we compared it to Morse code. The children had a great time creating Morse code signals using flashlights for their classmates.
In English, Year 5 has been looking at proper nouns. The children had fun investigating different proper nouns and adding them to large sheets of paper around the classroom. We had lots of fun trying to think of different proper nouns to include under all six different headings.
