British Science Week Investigation – What’s the weather like today?

For British Science Week, Year 5 have been looking at the typical Great British weather – the wind!
We used both our maths and enquiry skills to work out the average speed of the wind this afternoon using bubbles! Great work Year 5!

Our news reports on child workers in Victorian mines.

In topic, we have been learning about our local area during the Victorian era and we have looked at what life was like for children at that time. We looked at child workers in the factories and mines and created a news report in groups, discussing the horrific working conditions for children. Lots of excellent learning!

‘Eggs’plaining the mystery of Humpty Dumpty!

Today Year 5 became detectives and forensic scientists as they solved the case of Humpty Dumpty’s murder. First we ‘eggs’amined the scene where we found not just a normal egg, a fried one! After examining the evidence and questioning a long line of suspects, we concluded that it was THE SUN who was infact responsible for Humpty Dumpty’s accident. We realised that Humpty was sitting on a wall made out of chocolate which began to melt due to the sun. This made the wall slippy causing Humpty to fall off and smash. However, as melting chocolate is a reversible change, it appeared as solid again when we examined it. The heat of the sun also caused the egg to fry when it was cracked, turning it in to a solid. As this is a irreversible change, all the Kings horses and all the Kings men couldn’t put Humpty together again!

The children have really enjoyed solving the mystery of Humpty Dumpty and have come up with some SMASHING puns to go in to their newspaper articles!

Google Expedition!

We loved being transported through virtual reality this morning on our Google Expedition! Year 5 travelled to space, a volcano, through shark infested water and through a safari without even leaving their seats! What an exciting morning!

Our Great British Afternoon Tea

As part of our Brilliant Britain topic, Year 5 have been looking at Great British traditions and customs. To understand a true British value, we took part in an Afternoon Tea where everybody got to act like royalty whilst sipping tea and tasting scones and jam.

Maybe you can even spot some children drinking their tea with their pinky out!
