Year 5

D.T. in Year 5. Today, the children learned about the use of cams to create moving parts in toys. They investigated some old toys to see how they worked, learned the names of the different components involved and designed and made their own space themed toy using a variety of cams.

Science - investigating thermal conductors and insulators. We set up a class investigation to find out which materials would act as the best insulators to slow down the melting of an ice cube. Ask the children what we did.

We are so impressed with these group landscape pictures in the style of David Hockney, the year 5 children used oil pastels to create these master pieces.

Year 5's Olympic projects have been superb! It's been lovely to see such a wide range of learning demonstrated in a variety of ways.We have even had some real Olympic medals brought in by Josef, his great grandad won gold in 1948 and silver and bronze in 1952, in gymnastics. We felt very honoured to see something so precious.

Year 5 worked very hard on their Europe Homework Projects, we have been so impressed with what has been produced!

Year 5 had great fun plotting the route of our sponsored walk and spotting physical and human features using Digimaps.

In our RE lessons we have been learning about love, check out these beautiful poems written by our Year 5 children.

Our Climate Change All Change project has come to an end. We were so impressed by the 3D designs and images the amazing architects from Levitt Bernstein had created from the children’s designs. We are very excited to see more of this work on display in school later in the year, and at the Victoria & Albert museum too!

As part of the the Trafford Singing Festival all our Year 5 children sang beautifully at The Waterside Theatre. Each class sang two songs individually and then a number of songs with the other schools taking part. What an enjoyable and memorable experience!

We had such fun on World Book Day, sharing our favourite books, creating poems and songs about reading and enjoying a range of other activities!

Our recent trip to Jodrell Bank was out of this world!

We have been using Tinkercad (a computer aided design software) to design houses for the future. The children have further developed their ideas from the CCAC sessions earlier this year to create their own houses for the future. We have some budding architects!

More amazing gymnastics in Year 5. Our focus for this session was 'mirroring': the children had to work in pairs to create a routine that showed them copying moves learning in previous sessions. We have some very talented and creative gymnasts!

In Spanish at the moment, we are learning about keeping fit. The children have collected some useful vocabulary, using bilingual dictionaries, and have created a weekly fitness plan.

Today we demonstrated our knowledge of geocentric and heliocentric models of our solar system on the playground. Can you spot the Earth and the Sun on each picture? What is the difference? What do modern humans now believe to be true?

Happy Lunar New Year from Year 5! Some children brought in items from home and told their classmates how they celebrated the new year.

Year 5 created some fantastic book projects for their class homework! Just look at this amazing work!

Coding in Year 5 - Miss Copley taught us how to use our coding skills to create a quiz show about Space on Scratch.

Spanish - 5 Hubble have listened to a story in Spanish. They then sequenced the events in the story before writing some sentences about the main character, in Spanish of course!

Fantastic Friday - children have been learning how to play table tennis. We've had some frantic games of 'round the world'!

We made a solar system that fits in our pocket!

Is the Earth flat or spherical? Year 5 Newton had a whole class debate using theories, facts and evidence from their learning to support their opinions.

On Monday we took a group of 15 children to Sale Leisure Centre to take part in an Aqua Splash festival. The children took part in fun relay races as part of a team whilst improving their swimming skills. Well Done!

Dance. Linking to our Science topic of Space we are creating our own dances using a variety of moves.

Fantastic Friday - Obstacle races followed by planning and delivering a warm up session to the rest of the group.
