      Year 5 become Engineers.

      Published on Friday 26 November 2021 by Mr Askew.

      In Year 5, the children have been identifying a problem that NASA are wanting to have moon rovers on the moon in 2024 and that we would design and build a prototype.

      The children looked at the different mechanisms that would make it function to generate their ideas, before designing their prototype. The children then made their moon rovers and tested them. They then redesigned and made them again. All of the children were successful in making their prototypes move.

      Our children showed great innovation to adapt their designs when they did not work and great resilience to overcome these setbacks.

          Ask an astronomer.

          The children have been learning about our solar system in science and have enjoyed discovering some amazing things. Some quotes from our children:

          "We have day and night because the earth rotates around its axis. When it faces the sun, it is day time, and when it faces away from the sun it is night time." Scarlett

          "The earth, sun and moon are roughly spherical objects." Harriet

          The earth and other 8 planets orbit around the sun. It takes the earth 365 and a quarter days to do one orbit." Kenny

          "The moon takes 28 days to orbit the earth." Charlie

          The children have become experts as they have been reading about a chosen planet that they will be writing a non-chronological report about next week so they were able to come up with very good scientific questions to ask Doctor Peter Edwards, an astronomer from Durham University, about our solar system and the galaxy.

          The children were fascinated and in awe of some of the amazing information and images that Dr Edwards shared.

          Ask an astronomer.

            Published on Friday 15 October 2021 by Mrs Blackett.

            This week our words to learn do not fit into a spelling pattern. They are our challenge words. In our lesson today we looked at each word and highlighted which part we thought would be tricky to remember when spelling it.

            Spelling tasks are on Spelling Shed and expect the children to be practicing these words at home.
