Notes from the class
What we have been learning...
The first term of Year 5 has absolutely flown by! The children in 5D have worked exceptionally hard this term and have made good progress.
Our topic this term has been World War II and, where possible, lessons have been linked to this theme. All of the children enjoyed taking part in our Remembrance Service and, as well as creating the poppy display in front of the school and some poppy art, they have since sewn and stuffed their own poppies (there were plenty of tangles and knots along the way!).
In Science, we have been learning about States of Matter. We have investigated factors that affect dissolving. We are currently learning about thermal conductors and insulators and the children have worked in groups to design a cup that keeps drinks warm; we will test which designs are the most efficient next week.
