In Year 5 we agree to:
Mrs Wallis, who is a STEM Ambassador and works at BAE, came in to work with Year 5 on their forces topic. We made Stomp rockets, built structures using wine gums and made Harrier Hawks to investigate air resistance.
Year 5 have been learning to dance the Charleston in PE – They will soon be appearing on Strictly come dancing!
Year 5 have been using their maths to measure and weigh out ingredients for their Christmas cakes. They were converting kilograms to grams and reading scales in millilitres and grams. They worked together in groups, following the recipes and learning new baking techniques.
Don’t forget to ask your mums and dads whether you can bake some tasty treats at home to keep practicing your skills!
They decorated their cakes and then used more maths to make a box that would fit.
Year 5 have been combining their knowledge of levers in Science with their D and T skills and making a Christmas card that moves. Behind each card there is a complicated lever mechanism.
