Please respond again to the AT2 question on the blog.

Your answer this time should be informed by what we have learned in class this half term.

โ€œDoes the celebration of Christmas today include remembrance of God?โ€

Anti-bullying posters

This week we created posters to put on display for Anti-bullying week. Our poems were carefully thought out and had a lovely message. Some children focused on the negative impacts of bullying and other children shared awareness on how kindness and compassion can have positive effects on children’s happiness and school life. We all follow these great messages to ensure our school is bullying free.

RE Artwork

Last week for RE homework, Year 5 were asked to create their own drawing about the story of the birth of Jesus. Some fantastic pieces have come back in and it is clear to see how much effort was put into them.

They are proudly on display in our classroom for all to see. Well done, guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

Science Experiment

Today we designed and created our own parachute’s for a science lesson looking at forces. We looked at how air resistance works against gravity to decrease the rate that which an object falls. We created 3 different parachutes and ensured our testing was fair, as we only changed one variable (independent variable).

Science Investigation (Air Resistance) :)

Today in Science, we were investigating the effects of air resistance.

This was our challenge:

We pretended that The Super Skydiving Company were redesigning the parachute they use to allow people to perform skydives from airplanes. We had to make sure the parachute they used was perfect and allowed the customer to fall from the airplane as slowly and safely as possible.

Each group made three different parachutes using a sheet of card, string and a paperclip. We kept the paperclip and length of string the same each time (these were our controlled variables). Our independent variable (the thing we changed each time) was the size of the sheet of card. Our dependent variable- the thing which we measured- was the time it took for the parachute to reach the ground.

The perfect parachute was the one that made the person fall the slowest. We found that the parachute that had the largest sheet of card took the longest to reach the ground. We found that the parachute with the largest sheet of card reached the ground last. This was because air resistance pushed it up with the biggest force.

Year 5 Jonah: What have we been learning this week?

 

This week in Jonah class, we have been looking at long multiplication (which can be quite tricky to understand at first).

By way of deepening our understanding of the process, we drew on our desks and used place value counters to help us to understand each step.

In particular, this practical lesson really helped us to understand why we use our place holder. We could see that every time we multiplied by a multiple of 10, there were never any 1s left in the 1s column.

Not only did we have a lot of fun during this lesson but the children also now feel a lot more confident with long multiplication! ๐Ÿ™‚
