This morning we practiced all our races for sports day ready for tomorrow.We practiced the sprint, bean bag race, hoops and relay. We all worked well in our teams and cheered each other on. It was so much fun! Well done to everyone!!
This afternoon we put our coding skills to practice. We used Sphero to code different types of shapes and angles. We also used our knowledge on time to code by drawing shapes clockwise and anti-clockwise.
This afternoon, we have tested how air resistance acts upon a force. We have learnt that as an aeroplane files through the sky, it has to push through the air around it. Friction between the air and the plane slows the plane down, which is known as air resistance.
We tested our paper aeroplane designs and measured which aeroplane travelled the furthest.
This morning in Maths we were understanding the purpose of timetables and how to read them. I can now read a 24 hour clock and analysis and interpret data off a timetable and begin to answer word problems.
This week, we have been very busy creating interactive information texts. We have used keynote to create a contents page, glossary, fact boxes and diagrams. We have used our coding knowledge to link different slides together.
During lunch time we had a visit off some of the pupils from the Thomas Telford School. Some of the year 5’s got to share a buffet lunch with some of the pupils from Thomas Telford. We were fortunate to ask them questions about how they got into the school, what their aspirations were for the future and what subjects they enjoy doing at school.
This morning in literacy we used our prior learning to help us create our own non- chronological report on the planets. We have chosen to do it on planets as it links to out science topic. We know to include clear titles and subheadings.
