Year 5 spent a fun and informativmorning at Ahlulbayt Cultural Centre learning about Islamic beliefs and practices. There were lots of interesting resources to look at and the children learnt how their name is written in arabic. At the end of the morning the children took part in a quiz and impressed all our friends at the Mosque with their amazing knowledge.

Properties of Materials Homework – Due in Wednesday 8th February

Towards the end of this half-term, we will be doing our science topic: Properties of Materials.

You need to find out about different materials that things are made from (eg. wood, different plastics, glass, different metals) and why these materials are used.

You can present your findings in any way you choose, such as:

  • an alphabetic list with a different material for each letter of the alphabet
  • a collage of different materials – with a key to show what they are
  • a poster showing lots of different things made from one material
  • drawings or descriptions of objects made out of materials that wouldn’t work and why they wouldn’t work (eg a wooden jumper)
  • or your own ideas!
