Welcome to Year 5's news
Topic: Anglo Saxons
We made Anglo Saxon Houses from cake, chocolate, polymer clay, lego and wood. We have also made Grdendel eyes from the story of Beowulf!!
We used 150g of plastecene to work out the relative sizes of the eight planets in our solar system. We found out that all the planets could fit into Jupiter two and a half times over. It is huge!
Year 5 have been using their working scientifically skills to investigate their questions about forces using milk bottles and rocket mice.
Space Day! Visit from New Horizons Planetarium
Today we were finding out about space, meteorites, the space race and toys from the 1950's and 1960's.
Our Moon investigations.
Year 5 used flour, cocoa and various objects to simulate meteorites hitting the moon's surface to see the size or crater and ejecta that formed. This helped with our undertsanding of how craters on the moon were actually made over the last 4 billion years!!
