What an incredible week! Trip to Intech, boys football tournament, busy science afternoon and much, much more!
Plus our award winners for this week!
Yesterday, Year 5 and Year 6 visited Intech Science Centre in Winchester.
We we had an amazing day filled with loads of activities! First, we explored the space exhibits downstairs. After this we ventured upstairs to visit the other exhibits. It was great fun! During this time, we visited the gift shop to spend our money.
At 11.30 we had a workshop led by Luke. This workshop was all about the Webb telescope and the light spectrum. We did two different investigations. In the first one, we had to test different materials to see which would be the best protection from the sun. In the second, we had to see if we could get the laser beam to reach the rocket across a grid. In the final part of the workshop, we used special glasses to look at the light spectrum. This workshop was amazing!
Later in the day, we visited the planetarium. This was an extraordinary experience. We learned all about the different planets, galaxies and constellations.
At 2pm we left the centre and travelled back to school. Once we were back in the classroom, we collected out things we had bought in the gift shop.
Thank you to the helpers: Mrs Futcher, Mrs Paddock, Mrs Barnes and Ms Savage.
Today we journeyed into space to visit our solar system. We made our own space helmets and packed our imaginary suitcases with five items.
Can you remember the order of the planets? What five things would you take with you into space?
Today we made a model of the Earth. We used plasticine to work together in our talk partners to build the earth.
Can you remember the four layers? What was each layer made of?
Our first full week back as Year 5 and what a fantastic week! Well done to all the children on a super start to Year 5.
In maths, we recapped column addition and subtraction.
In English, we learned our modeol text for writing autobiographies. We also learned how to draw a story map and box up a text.
In topic. we began our Ancient Greeks topic with a carousel of activities. Take a look at the photos to see what we were up to.
