This week Year 5 started their new science topic on Properties and Changes in Materials. Over the next few weeks they will be working on answering the Learning Challenge Question: Could you be the next CSI investigator?
The first lesson involved the children taking on the roles of crime scene investigators and looking at the evidence to identify the top secret project the kidnapped Professor Brainstorm was working on.
They had so much fun!
Last week was Space Week. The theme this year was Satellites. In Year 5 we have looked at the uses of manmade satellites and we have also learned about natural satellites such as moons that orbit around planets like Earth.
We then researched and compared the planets and discussed where we could go if we could no longer live on Earth. As a class, we decided on Mars.
