Welcome to year 5
This term, year 5 will be studying the world of the Ancient Greeks. We will also look at the properties of materials. In the second half of the term we will be studying Forces in science and using mechanisms in Technology.
Year 5 made plastic out of Milk (yes really - ish).
Watch the video narrated by Scarlett to find out how.
...and here are some of the Christmas decorations that they made.
Year 5 have been writing short programmes using the language Logo. They have used repetition, sequencing and variables to create the output they wanted.
They had to show many of our LEARNING DISPOSITIONS.
They were RESOURCEFUL in using the help guides and friends.
They were OPEN to suggestions about how to improve their work.
They were ASPIRATIONAL about wanting to create more complex designs.
They had to be RESILIENT when things didn't work first time.
They were REFLECTIVE about how successful they had been and what they could try next.
The programme that we used is Logo. You can download this free programme from here.
We have never had any problems with this source.
Make sure that your anti-virus software is up to date.
The children each had a European country to research and produced a poster about it. They have written quizzes using the Hot Potatoes programme to test your knowledge about the country.
