Welcome to Year 5!
Scroll down to find out what we are up to this term!
Our teachers this year are Miss Staward, Mrs Houghton, Miss Simpson and Mrs Richardson.
We began the year with an eco topic linked to improving the school grounds. We asessed the area and decided on ways in which our school garden could be made better. We were able to get our hands dirty and remove all of the overgrown weeds and rubbish from the garden.
Our aims for this area are:
To tidy and ensure it is a safe and usable environment for all
To create habitats for small insects and mammals To plant fruit, vegetables and herbs to be used by the school kitchen and in our cookery lessons.
We hope to have this completed by summer 2018! Watch this space for updates.
Is There Anybody Out There?
We have had so much fun learning about space in science. We have found out about the universe, the planets in our solar system, why we have day and night and how the moon appears to change shape throughout the month.
Our investigations have been amazing!
We tested the impact of different sized asteroids
We made sun dials to show how the earth rotates every day
We used different size food to show the difference in the size of planets in our solar system
We used Oreo cookies to demonstrate the phases of the moon
We used toilet tissue to plan out and show the differences between each planet in our solar system.
