Pupils » Class Pages » Year 5
The children worked incredibly hard over the last 2 weeks producing some fabulous Anglo Saxon projects. They then presented what they had produced to the class this week.
We have been very bust investigating forces in science this half term. We began by investigating what we measure for in (a unit called Newtons) and tried to find out if there was a link between mass and weight. Using Newton meters we found that 1N = 1kg. We have also looked how to show forces on a diagram and learnt that there is always lots of different forces acting on us in different ways - including gravity (thank goodness!), air resistance, reactionary forces, water resistance and many more. We then investigated how the shape or material of a parachute can affect the air resistance slowing the fall. We had a great time making different parachutes to see which fell the slowest - giving us the best parachute. We are looking forward to investigating how shape affects the amount of water resistance on an object next week!
Only a 'wreck this page' for the half term holiday.

They learnt about Roald Dahl and his life, wrote Revolting Rhymes, made strawberry truffles and watched 'Roald Dahl live'.
Some of the Revolting Rhymes will be available to listen to on Thursday at our prize giving ceremony.
I hope you have all had a good weekend.
Don't forget it is Roald Dahl day on Tuesday so it's time to put the finishing touches to your costumes.
