Year 5 - Spain
Welcome to Spain class. We are in Year 5 and our teacher is Miss Walker. Mrs Peel and Mrs Hoolahan are our Teaching Assistants.
Two of the girls went outside and came back with tubs full of soil from our garden, which we mixed into a big tub of water. Our task was to use different materials to make filters, to see if we could make the water clean again. Two groups got pretty close – but we decided that it probably wasn’t clean enough to drink! We found that the best material to use was cotton wool.
We had a go at doing our own Stone Age cave art – and to make it more realistic, we turned off all of the lights, drew the curtains and got under the tables! We chose whether we wanted to use pastels, chalks or crayons, then imagined that we were back in the Stone Age, leaving messages for each other and for future generations. It was really fun – and really messy!
Welcome back although we have been back quite a few weeks now. Everyone has had a good start to Year 5 and we have all been working hard.
Science – Sorting Materials
As part of our science topic on ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’, we had a go at sorting materials in different ways. We chose our own sorting criteria and took pictures of our results. Next time, we will have to use scientific sorting criteria so we are looking up the definitions of words such as ‘permeability’ and ‘solubility’.
Maths – Roman Numerals
In Maths we have been learning to use Roman Numerals. We found a new use for lollipop sticks and made some very big numbers out of them!
