The Iron Man - Monday 15th October
In Guided Reading and English, we have been reading the story of The Iron Man. We noticed that in Chapter 4 there are lots of references to different places around the world. We worked in groups, using maps, to find all the different places mentioned in the text. We showed fantastic reciprocity! Did you know: The Tran Siberian railway is the longest railway in the world and is 5,772 miles long, stretching across the whole of Russia!
Scratch Counting Machine - Monday 15th October
This half term we have been working really hard in Computing to create a counting machine, using Scratch. We programmed it to count in different multiples and challenge the user to identify the missing number. Once our programming was completed, which was really challenging at times, we focused on making our project interesting by creating exciting backgrounds and changing the characters.
Today we got to test our project out on Year 3. It was great fun, they gave us lots of lovely feedback about how resilient and creative we had been! We can't wait for our next Scratch project.

Science Investigation - Thursday 26th September
Today, we have been carrying out a science investigation around our topic of Space. So far we have learnt about the phases of the Moon and the Earth's rotation around the Sun.
Today we used our investigation to prove that the Earth rotates on its axis. Throughout the day,we measured the length and position of the shadow we created. We noticed that the shadow was in a different position at different points in the day. It had also changed in size.

Welcome to Year 5!
The beginning of Year 5 has been fun. At first it was really scary because we have never been split up since the Owls and Puffins. We have made friends really quickly and we all get along well. Our teacher, Miss Gunner, is full of excitement and she makes us want to come to school. We are looking forward to spending the year with her and doing lots of fun learning.
