DT Project - Building Bridges

Year 5 were set the challenge to design and build prototype bridge to replace Tadcaster Bridge which was destroyed by a flood. They went through a process of planning, creating and evaluating:

- looked at and sketched existing bridges

- designed their own bridge to meet a design brief

- created their bridge using the allocated materials and budget

- tested out the bridges

- evaluated

Mental Health

We have been learning about mental health within PSHCE. We discussed what 'mental health' means and how this differs to physical health. We talked about how to control our mental health and what we can do to improve it. We then listened to a visualisation audio clip which helped us to clear our minds. There is a link below if you'd like to listen!

Monet

Year 5 have just started an Art topic based upon the famous artist 'Monet'.

So far, we have used our thinking hats to analyse some of his art work and researched his life.

We then began thinking about how he uses watercolour paints. We experimented with how many different shades we could create using just one colour. 

Year 5 solved the crime! 

 

Today in History, we had a crime to solve. The children we shown the crime scene at Sutton Hoo. We were then shown pieces of evidence that had come from the crime scene, 'Mound 1'. The children spent some time analysing the evidence before being shown the victims. The children decided on a victim and THEY WERE CORRECT! Can they tell you how they solved the crime?

Roman Numerals

Year 5 have been learning their Roman numerals this week. They can now confidently count up to 100!

What happened to Britain when the Romans left?

 

We left year 4 learning all about Romans and began year 5 with the very important question of 'What happened to Britain when the Romans left?' We found out that the Saxons came along to fight the picts and scots! In History today, we looked at a story about Hengest and Horsa. We discovered lots about different characters and used our knowledge to create a piece of drama retelling the story. Can the children tell you the story? 

Water - Friend or Foe?

 

In geography, we have been learning all about the effects of water. We have been intrigued by the recent news of Hurricane Irma. Yesterday, we looked at the causes and consequences of the Bangladesh flooding in 1998. Can the children tell you about any of the causes?

Year 5 Problem Solvers! 

 

In maths, we have been learning all about negative numbers. We've been using our excellent teamwork skills to solve worded problems. It was very important for us to show our working out and all agree on the correct answer.
