Year 5 Category
Year 5 have created some beautiful applique designs.
Year 5 had a wonderful time at the Science Fair at Leeds University. They worked in the bio-chemistry labs making baths bombs and extracting DNA from kiwi fruit! Our budding scientists showed real enthusiasm for chemistry!
Today Year 5 completed their Move a Mile at lunchtime!
Your homework this half term is to choose a country and find out about the foods grown, eaten and produced there. Decide how you want to present your learning eg. poster, ICT presentation, story or any other creative idea!
Homework due in: Thursday 23rd March
Year 5 have done some fantastic science work this week, investigating properties of different materials. We will be exploring mixing and separating materials next half term.
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.
Year 5 visited Cartwright Hall to learn about early Islamic Civilisation. They looked at Art Work, artefacts, played games practised their arabic writing and made Islamic patterns.It was a brilliant day out!
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!
