A letter was sent home on Friday 7th June detailing the 'kit list' for our residential on 17th-19th July. If you haven't got one, please ask your child for a spare or let one of us know. Thank you.
Summer term - 2nd half term
Welcome back for the final half term of Year 5!
We have two exciting trips this half-term. We will be going to Bewilderwood with the whole school on 21st June and the Royal Norfolk Show on 26th June alongside Year 3. If you are free on Wednesday 26th June, and would like to give us a hand for the day, that would be fabulous. Free entry to the show as well! Please see Mr Hilson or Mrs Prior. Thank you!
Science Day: 4/1/19
Year 5 are learning about the topic 'Eureka' this term, and as part of our topic we took part in a Science investigation. Mr Heasman gave us a problem to investigate and solve.
Mr Heasman recently encountered a curious situation... He went swimming in the sea and his hair gel washed out and left his hair flat, however when he was in the rain the next day, his hair gel remained. He wanted us to find out why this differed. We mixed hair gel with water and hair gel with salty water to see what happened. The salt water broke down the salt particles and turned the gel to liquid, making it easy to wash out. This did not happen with normal water.
Here are some photographs of our investigation:
Science Day - 10th October 2018
The whole school enjoyed making bottles erupt. In Year 5, we learnt why adding Mentos sweets to fizzy drinks makes them erupt. We predicted what would happen in our experiment, thought about what we could change and then compared our predictions to the results through evaluation. We had great fun!
West Stow Anglo-Saxon Trip
On Monday 24th September, Year 5 visited West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village, where the children experienced life during the Anglo-Saxon era. They were able to experience how the Anglo-Saxons lived by visiting the various reconstructed buildings.
Later, they visited the museum, tried on various items of Saxon clothing, looked at artefacts and were transported back in time listening to an exciting talk by the museum staff.
Here are some photos showing how they spent their day!
Welcome to Year 5!
We are looking forward to a packed year of learning and this half term our Topic is 'There and back again'. The document below outlines the first half term's learning.
