Year 5 started of their new Science topic, 'Stargazers', with an investigation. They were given a tray full of fruit and a table including some confusing information about the size of the planets in the Solar System, as well as their distance from the Sun!
By the end of the lesson, they could all explain the size and order of the planets! Amazing work Year 5!
Year 5 completed their 'Innovate' challenge this week! They were tasked with building a rocket, along with a launch system, that would firstly, fly as high as possible and secondly, survive the landing!
Year 5's new topic is 'Scream Machines' which is all about rollercoasters. They have been exploring the different forces at work when a rollercoaster completes a loop the loop! Here are they are, taking the 'Centripetal Force Challenge' and trying not to get wet! Year 5 discovered that the bucket had to be going fast enough so the water didn't fall out. Great work!
