After the announcement last night we are happy to be welcoming our classmates back to school in two weeks! We are super excited, so excited that we took some selfies to show you how much we miss our classmates. We can’t wait to see you all and begin our journey to normality!
Today we channeled our inner Elsa and took part in a snowman competition at school. We built our own Olaf, Miss Gallagher even brought us a carrot from home! Here is our finished product and even though we didn’t win we had a lot of fun in the snow. Well done to Year 4 who won!
Today we tested the effects the surface area of a parachute has on the speed of a falling object. Our parachuter’s were made out of eggs and we discovered that the larger the surface area the safer landing that the egg had. So if it was a real experiment we would want a parachute with the largest surface area as the forces out way each other to create a safe landing.
Today we worked as a whole class to solve a puzzle about our four operations. We all worked together on whiteboards and discussed as a class how we could solve it. Lots of us had many different ideas, so we also learnt how to listen and take on feedback from other people. We solved the problem and it felt great! We really worked hard today.
Happy New Year, Year 5! Hope you had a lovely Christmas break and lets hope for lot’s of fun and good memories this coming year!
At the start of this topic I told the children they had a piece of optional homework and this was to create something linked to space. This was anything they liked. Safe to say they have blown my socks off yet again. Here are some of the Space Projects we have has in so far.
Today we had a visit from active lifestyles and we practised our throwing and catching skills. Safe to say it was a fun but wet and cold day!
Welcome back and welcome to Year 5! Well it has indeed been a strange year but it is now time for a fresh start and new adventures! I look forward to seeing your smiling faces tomorrow morning. Miss G
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!
