Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

 

Welcome to Year 5! The teachers are Miss Young, Mrs Rossall and Mr Parker. We are helped by Mrs Beetham, Miss Hughes, Miss Linney and Mrs Yusuf.

 

Last half term we enjoyed our science topic, ‘Music, Lights, Action!’, where we were learning that light travels in straight lines and used this to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye. We carried out investigations to explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes. We had a few sunny days for our shadow investigations which explained why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.

In electricity, we compared and gave reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches. We associated the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit. As young ‘Sparkies’, we used symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.

 There was a great trip to Springfields BNFL where we looked round a OFC (Oxide Fuels Complex) site as well as recapping on all things electrical.

 

Next half term our topic is ‘Eco-warriors’ in which we learn about sustainability, linked to areas such as: Food and drink, Energy and water, Travel and traffic, Local community and Global citizenship

We will explore and explain practical ways in which science can contribute to a more sustainable future.

Our PE days are on a Wednesday and a Friday, where we will be enjoying developing our ball skills.

Homework is given out on a Monday and is to be handed in on the following Monday!
