Year 5 Hawking

Sponsored Walk

Well done Year 5! We had a glorious 10-mile walk. Thank you to all our volunteers for helping to make it so successful.

British Science Week

World Book Day 2020!

In R.E. we have been reading quotes from The Bible demonstrating the powerful impact of love. We read together a poem taken from Corinthians, and used this to create our own powerful love poems. Take a look at some of 5 Hawking's beautiful depictions of love below.

Our very own Dominique Wilkinson came 2nd place OVERALL at the Stockport Grammar School competition!! She is such a talented artist and this is well-deserved!

A huge congratulations to these children for getting their self-portraits selected to be entered into the Stockport Grammar School art competition - good luck to them all! Well done to the whole year group for the amazing effort put in.

Jodrell Bank

5 Hawking enjoyed a fantastic trip to Jodrell Bank, asking lots of questions, showing curiosity and learning even more about Space. We did a Mars Rover Challenge Workshop and also visited the Inflatable Planetarium as well as exploring other exhibits and outdoor spaces - I'm sure they will be able to tell you all about it!

Our Solar System - the planets

This week in Science we had some exciting items on our tables to put in order. We decided that the items (mainly fruit) represented each of the 8 planets and put them in order from the Sun.

We then took this outside to make a playground-scale model of the Solar System, learning the relative distances between each planet and those distances in relation to the Sun.

We then made our own mnemonics, such as My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos!

After that, we did 'Solar System Speed Dating' to find out interesting facts about each planet before making our own 'Solar System in your pocket'.

Lots of learning, participation and curiosity!

Spanish - Toma Tomate

During Spanish this week, we practised the playground song 'Toma Tomate'. Here it is for you to enjoy!

Christmas Party time!

Year 5 enjoyed a fun-filled Christmas party with lots of dancing and games. Thanks to all who made this possible!

Who should be king in 1066?

This week we have been researching the 4 contenders to the throne in 1066 and their leadership qualities. We are going to use this research to create campaigns to argue why each contender should rightfully earn their title as King.

Computing - Scratch

In computing, we have used Scratch to learn about algorithms and how to use coding to make a game. These are some examples of our finishing product - a maze game! We let different children in the class have a go at playing our games.

Lily's poem

Today we have had GIST in to talk to us about road safety, especially in the case of lorries on the road. They told us how to be safe and demonstrated the blind spots that lorries have. We were surprised to learn the large distance it takes for a lorry to stop and turn corners but were very excited to sit in the driver's seat!
WOW 5 Hawking - Miss Landi is blown away with the exceptional effort that has been put into your Anglo-Saxon projects this half term. As ever, thank you to parents and carers for making this possible! Please see below photos from our exhibition which we did to showcase all our hard work.

World Mental Health Day

In light of World Mental Health Day, we wrote about times/situations in which we felt excited, angry, relaxed, upset, worried, embarrassed, grateful and proud.

We discussed how important it was to talk about our feelings, and that it is OK to feel these emotions.

Our Anglo-Saxon Villages!

Air Resistance

In Science, we measured the effect of air resistance by making parachutes and testing the way they fell. Different groups could change one thing about their parachute: size, shape, material. This meant they could measure these variables against the effects of air resistance.
