In Science this week we were exploring the effects of gravity. We used Newton Metres to measure the weight of objects and then compared this to their mass.
In Maths, we set up an experiment to test whether the height of a ramp impacted the distance a toy car would travel. We presented our data as a line graph.
We used a range of media in Art to create publications of our Poems from Literacy.
The children worked collaboratively in Maths this week to solve multi-step problems.
This week we started a new unit in Numeracy - Addition and Subtraction. The children took part in various 'active maths' challenges that involved using both mental and written methods to solve calculations.
Year 5 had a visit from Sea Dream this week. The focus was climate change and the children made their own universal indicator and learned about how ocean currents transport plastics around the world.
