Lest We Forget

Year 5 took part in a whole school remembrance service on Friday 9th November. After planting our poppies in the Boundary Remembrance Garden, we observed a two minute silence in honour of those who lost their lives. In the afternoon, we created poppy art.

Science

In Science this week, we have continued to learn about the planets in our solar system and how shadows can help us to tell the time. We made a model of our solar system using PE equipment and made our own sundials. We are waiting for the sun to shine so we can test them!

WOW - Watch this Space!

To introduce our new topic - Watch this Space! - we had a visit from the Wonder Dome planetarium. We learned about the planets in our solar system and looked at how the Moon orbits the Earth. In class, we made the phases of the Moon from Oreo biscuits!

This week, the children have been working with local artist, Jane Voss. They looked at a number of techniques including drawing portraits, printing and mark making. Their work will be collaged into a final piece based on our topic, Blackpool Rocks. Watch this space for the finished product!

In Science, we continued to learn about properties of state by looking at reversible and irreversible changes. We made toast, jelly, boiled/fried eggs, made a cookie mix and discussed if we could get these items back as they were before.

We have been investigating properties of materials this week, in Science. We used different methods to separate mixtures and solutions; we used sieves, filters, funnels, magnets and heat to separate our materials using their properties.

Year 5: A Year in Review 2017/18

 

This year, Year 5 have had a fun-packed year, not only beginning their Upper Key Stage 2 curriculum journey but finding out lots of interesting things in our varying topics.

We began the year finding out about our local history in Blackpool and had a visit from Jamie who works at Blackpool Tower, who taught us about how Blackpool had changed.

We have worked very hard on our growth mindset with resilience training with the Headstart team during the Bounce Forwards sessions

We have experienced real-life work when we took over the school for the day. Not only did we need to apply for the job but also, we needed to have interviews and then plan activities for the day before TAKING OVER the different roles!

We found out all about Samba dance and drumming in the carnivals in Brazil as well as learning lots about rivers including the Amazon. We found out all about the journey of the river and we even made our own.

 

We have had a fantastic year in Year 5 and we have learnt so much that will help us in Year 6. Miss Dodgson and Miss Crystal would like to say Well Done to Year 5 on their fantastic work this year and know the children will be fantastic as they continue on their journey to Year 6.
