Year 5 Science

Easy Blog Photo
We’ve been learning all about the Solar System in science today. First we used play dough to show the relative sizes of the planets as well as using them to show how all the planets orbit the sun. We then made our own cardboard models to show how the Earth orbits the sun and the moon orbits the Earth.
Questions : How many days does it take for the Earth to orbit the sun? How many days does it take for the moon to orbit the Earth?

Nursery’s Space Adventures

Following the story ‘Whatever Next! By Jill Murphy the children have created some fabulous works of art. The bears they have painted are brilliant! Super space bottle rockets have been zoomed around the classroom. Boxes and cardboard tubes were joined together to create more super rockets and on Thursday the children used shapes to print aeroplanes.
You have all worked so hard, we are very proud of you!
We would love to read any comments.

We investigated what happens when we mix different liquids with bicarbonate of soda before deciding which would be the best fuel for our mini rockets. Vinegar and lemon juice created the most fizz so we went for those. Apologies to our cleaning staff who will now have to clean our ceiling!!!

Nursery’s Nocturnal Afternoon

Yesterday the Nursery children had a lovely visit from the animal lady, Mrs Reynolds. She had with her a lovely selection of nocturnal animals. She had Willow the barn owl, a little owl called Midge, a pigmy hedgehog called Branston (prickle), Victor the turtle, Zippy the marine toad and a Macleays stick insect called Shelia. The children sat beautifully as she shared information about the animals, we are very proud of you!
We would love to hear which animal your child liked best and why.

We talked about nocturnal animals and then they created some brilliant paintings and drawings of hedgehogs, they have worked so hard. Thank you to everyone who brought in Autumn treasures for us to look at.

Year 1 Autumn Walk.

Year 1 had a busy day yesterday! In the morning we worked hard making our very own litter pickers. Once the glue had dried, we went on an Autumn walk in the woodlands to collect leaves using our litter pickers! We were amazed at the objects that we collected with them! What great work!
