Year Five made erupting volcanoes.
Year Five investigated soluble and insoluble materials
and explored ways of separating mixtures and solutions.
Our Mission day theme was `Building bridges, not walls, love not hate'.
Our year group looked at inspirational people and used their messages.
We wrote letters to our partner school in Rwanda
and wrote messages of hope on our handprints.
Our theme for Poetry Day this year was Freedom.
We looked at the poem `High Flight' and used this as a stimulus
to write our own poems using this theme.
On Bonfire Night we learnt how to be safe and designed our very own firework pictures using pastels.
From the letters we wrote to our Rwandian school in September,
we were over the moon to receive replies in November.
We hope to Skype with them in Spring term.
Christmas is always a wonderful time and in Year Five
we had a fun time at the disco and party.
Year Five have been working hard since September on their Anglo-Saxon projects and in December we held an exhibition to show all off our hard work.
Year Five explored the effects of air resistance on a moving object.
We discovered gravity pulls an object down
but air resistance slows down the speed it travels.
On Tuesday 19th September Year Five carried out some work in our local community. We travelled to Derby Park to do some litter picking.
We were able to help clear up the environment and enjoyed our morning.
