As part of their topic on space Y5 were challenged with the task of designing and making a moon buggy with similar features to the Lunar Roving Vehicle used on the Moon in the last three missions of the American Apollo programme during 1971 and 1972. As you can see they all did a great job!
Year 5 enjoyed joining in the BBC live lesson on Safer Internet Usage. They learnt how the internet is a great source of information but they should always check that what they read is reliable. They made their own newspaper headlines and we all had to guess if they were real or fake.
Over this half term year 5 have been reading The Firework Maker’s Daughter by Philip Pullman. They have created some wonderful work related to the book including reports, diary and newspaper writing, designing fireworks, character descriptions and finally some impressive book…
During Mental Health awareness week Y5 learnt about the importance of Well being and made posters to show how this can be achieved. We discussed what we like doing to make us feel happy and made worry boxes to put all our worries in so we can focus on happy things instead.
Year 5 have been reading 'The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ and were asked to design a firework that could help Lila and Lalchand win the competition! I think you’ll agree we have some future pyrotechnicians in the making!
Y5’s home learning on Space.
Y5 created dioramas to show their understanding of the world’s biomes.
Year 5 have been learning about the importance of recycling, reusing and reducing what we use in order to protect our planet.
They have also created posters to show the importance of living a healthy lifestyle by having the correct amount of sleep, exercise and healthy food.
Y5 were given a Maya civilization project. They could create something of their choice to show what they had learnt. This is what they came up with. The imagination and creativity has been absolutely amazing. Well done everyone!
Collective Worship in year 5 on the Ten Commandments and Noah’s Ark. This was organised in the children’s own time and resources made at home to enhance it. Well done.
Y5 enjoyed taking part in a Pentathalon today. They practised their running, jumping and throwing skills.
Y5 have had a spooky spectacular day making creepy cookies and bats, writing spooky stories and playing some gruesome games!
