We are all missing our school community very much in these very strange times. Remember to stay healthy, be helpful at home and keep calm! We will hopefully see all your smiling faces again soon!
This afternoon we welcomed the little ones into our class so we could read them a story. It was a special trip to the Year 5 classroom for Year 2.
Our topic this term is forces. For Science week we designing different size parachutes to see which falls the slowest. We discovered that the larger the parachute the slower the descent. Therefore, the bigger parachute was safest for the paperclip person.
This week we let our classmates teach us all about their religion. It is interesting when our classmates become the teachers!
Today we went to St Cuthberts High School to visit the Kielder Observatory. We got to see the sky as it was over Northumberland last night and we learnt lots about the different planets that you could see in the sky.
This term in Science we have been learning about forces. Today we looked at Buoyancy and Gravity and how they can work together to keep a boat a float. We built boats from recycled materials and tested how much weight they could hold before they sank.
In art this week we have took the time to design and create our own versions of the Mayan Legend that is the Quetzal Bird. Quetzal birds are loyal and represent wealth and happiness.
Back in full force after Christmas. Isn’t it lovely to see all of these smiling faces back in school after the holiday?!
Merry Christmas Year 5! I hope you have a lovely holiday spending time with your loved ones! See you in the new year!
