Year 5 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 5! We have lots of exciting things planned this year and activities linked to our topics.
Our first topic was Beast Creator:
MISSION: A super-strong aphid is destroying crops across the U.K. United Nations scientists have decided to use selective breeding to create a super-minibeast that can exterminate these greed aphids. As a member of the selective breeding team, you must create your own super beast in order to control or exterminate this outbreak.
The children will be using their Design and Technology skills to create their own superbug using a range of materials; naming it, finding its Latin name and adding details about its main features.
Our current topic, in Autumn 2, is Alchemy Island:
The focus of our topic this term is scientific investigation. We will be looking at the properties of materials; change of state in materials; electricity and circuits and how to plan and design our own experiments. In English, we will be creating our own character descriptions of a mad scientist.
Well done to all of the children whose attendance has been over 96% and congratulations to 5J who were the first class to earn the £30 reward for their attendance.
