Year 5B

To learn about the different phases of the moon, we created our own charts using Oreos.  

As a brilliant beginning for our Blast Off! topic, we took part in a drama workshop. 

To investigate the opposing forces buoyancy and gravity and how they affect an objects ability to float we designed and built boats. 

During our science class, children investigated the effects of friction in order to discover the best material for an Olympic cycling track. 

As part of our Olympic topic we have been looking at life in Ancient Greece. Combining our history and art lesson we looked closely at different artefacts and used the iPads to research them. We then drew our artefacts in our sketchbooks.
