Our Autumn Term Big Question is:

How did the Industrial Revolution change Britain?

 

 Year 5 have been busy learning about the Industrial revolution. After watching a small clip, 5ET wrote down 6 newly learnt facts about important dates and inventions. They then swapped their new learning by having a snowball fight. What a fun way to exchange knowledge!

 

Investigating materials

Y5's have been busy investigating materials in science lessons. They have worked hard to develop their understanding of what a material is, what properties they can have and what states they can be in. Children have designed fair tests by identifying variables in order to test thermal conductivity and absorbency.

  

 

Are you the next Quentin Blake?

As part of Roald Dahl Day 2017, we took part in a live Broadcast where Y5 put their drawing skills to the test. They received a master class from Quentin Blake whilst getting a sneak peek inside Dahl's latest release, The Minpins.

  

 

What is number?

Year 5 have been showing off their understanding with some super discussions, diagrams and pictures.
