Welcome to Year 5. Year 5 staff are: Mr. Newman (Teacher) and Mrs. Ledger (Teaching Assistant).
Our topic this term is Scream Machine; we will be designing our own Space theme-park and learning about the science of roller-coasters. We will also find out more about the geography f the world through the different theme parks around the globe! We will be watching clips from Saving Mr. Banks and reading Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone as our class book.
Our PE days this term are Mondays and Wednesdays and this will take place outside so make sure you have your outdoor PE kit.
We are always here to help and will make every effort to deal with questions or issues as efficiently as possible. Either contact the school office or speak to us before or after-school to arrange an appointment.
Can you slow the fall of an egg to prevent it breaking?
As part of our learning about gravity and air resistance, we attempted to answer the question using a range of resources provided to us. Mr. Ambrick helped us drop the eggs, in their baskets, before we analysed the results of our experiment.
We used two footballs and a torch to model how we have night and day.
We have learnt some of the myths from Ancient Egypt including the stories of Ra, Osiris and Horus. We are using paint pens to paint these stories onto our wall like the inside of Ancient Egyptian pyramids.
