Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

The Year 5 Teaching Team consists of Mrs Maloney,

Mrs Wheatley, Mr Lofts and Miss Hutson. 

 

On our page you will find key information for our year group and see all of the exciting learning which is taking place in Year 5. 

 

Please remember that our homework is due in on a Thursday, and new homework will come home on a Friday.

 

Our PE days will always be a Thursday or Friday - please make sure your kit is brought in on a Monday morning and kept in school all week in case this changes.

Being a Historian

We have spent some time looking at The Tudors this term, in particular Henry VIII. During our lessons, we have worked collaboratively on our tables to find the key events of Henry VIII's life and put them into a time line making sure they were in chronological order.

Being a Scientist in Year 5

In year 5, we have been sorting and comparing everyday materials.  We learned that, not only can we sort materials by type but also by magnetic / non-magnetic, conductivity, hardness and solubility. 

 

We completed an experiment to sort things by their magnetic properties. We made predictions and then tested to find our results.  We then proved that magentism is a non-contact force.

 

Poetry Workshop - We had a fabulous day creating our poems after our workshop with Ian Bland. Everyone performed their poems in class, and we voted for our favourite to perform in assembly.

Maths - Key Instant Recall Facts

Lab Rascals - Lego, Wind Energy Workshop

Lab Rascals - Lego Wind Energy Workshop.

 

Over the past week, Year 5 have been fortunate to have Lab Rascals visit the school.  

Our challenge was to make a wind turbine (out of Lego) that could power a car.  First we had to construct our wind turbine (following the instructions carefully) and investigating which way the paddles worked best.  We experimented with the number of paddles and the effect on the joules that were measured.  We changed further variables, such as how the strength of the wind affected the energy that was generated.  We then used the  energy we had created to power a Lego car that we made. 

What a fabulous time we had, learning a great deal in the process and collaborating with our team mates to produce the required results.  

 

Thank you Lab Rascals!

We had a fun-filled day completing activities linked to Roald Dahl. Each class experienced working with a different teacher from the year group to look at a range of Roald Dahl books and characters. Mr Lofts chose to look at Roald Dahl's life, Miss Hutson's activities were all linked to The BFG and considering hopes and dreams, Mrs Wheatley focused on Matilda and Mrs Harker explored James and the Giant Peach. It was great to see so many children dressing as their favourite Roald Dahl characters and embracing the day... We are already looking forward to World Book Day!
