Science experiment afternoon in Year 5
On Thursday 1st February, Year 5 had the opportunity to complete some experiments as part of their science topic 'Separating materials'. The children were using their knowledge of liquids to test if they would separate or dissolve to make a solution. Using oil, water and vinegar, the children carried out the experiment and then wrote up the results. They had great fun! Well done Year 5- maybe we'll see some scientists in the future!
In PSHE this term, we have been thinking about how to become better learners. The children delivered mini lessons to their classmates thinking about how to best help their students to learn. The children brought in musical instruments, games and worksheets that they had created at home and delivered some brilliant lessons. We then reflected on the qualities that their students had shown that helped them to succeed in the lesson. We definitely have some brilliant teachers in the making!
World Book Day 2018
On the 1st March, the children had a great opportunity to dress up as their favourite book character. We had lots of brilliant costumes in Year 5 this year (Especially Mr Powell's Gangster Granny). The children had to re-write the ending to a famous fairy-tale. See some of their work below.
This week the children have been learning about measures. At the end of the topic, the children used their knowledge of converting measures to help them read a recipe. They sure enjoyed the last day of this topic eating yummy cookies!
