Today, we worked on balances and linking movements in Gymnastics. If you look at the below videos, see if you can identify any balances.

Launch of Stone to Iron Age

This afternoon, we launched our new topic of the half term - Stone Age to Iron Age. Together the children developed their understanding of how materials have evolved through the ages by uncovering items left in soil and sand. Some groups even uncovered significant characters from the past which they then successfully jigsawed together.

All about forces

Today Year 5 were taught by students from Leeds Beckett University completing a carousel of activities all about forces. The children had a splashing time learning about water resistance, zoomed through their friction activity and then the sky was the limit for their air resistance investigation. Here are some examples of the learning which took place. On behalf of the children, I'd like to thank the students for a great day and for all their hard work!

Y5C Planet excavation

In Y5C this afternoon it got very exciting, we had discovered a frozen fossil from an unknown planet! At first, many people thought it was just a snail. However, after using toothpicks to make it clear, we found a big shell. Y5C suggested that as there is a fossil on that planet, there must have been living creatures! Below, are some images of the excitement we had chipping at the mysterious, frozen fossil!
