Mr Hughes : Year 5
Welcome to year 5, we hope you enjoy reading all about the learning that we are undertaking this year.
In D.T. we have been creating anglo-saxon brooches and necklaces to link to our history topic. Here are some photos of the children creating their wonderful historical pieces of jewellery
In Art/DT we have been designing and creating an Anglo Saxon house as part of our cross curricular work with our History topic. We have been sketching, designing, creating and ultimately evaluating our buildings. The children's learning has been amazing and they are having brilliant fun.
In Geography we have been looking at the different types of Erosion that take place along our coastlines.
In Science we have been looking at shadows within our topic of Earth and Space. We have been undertaking an experiment to see how shadows and there lengths change as the day progresses. We have been looking at why this happens and how the planets in our solar system actually move.
In Science we have been investigating the gravitational pull various objects generate using Newton metres.
