Science

Planting a Sunflower

Plant a sunflower seed and keep a record of how the plant grows and devlops each week. Think carefully about  what plants need to grow and develop, what effects their groowth rate and how quickly the plant grows.

Growing Crystals

Chnging maerials. Changes occur when the materials are mixed, heated or cooled. Reversible changes include dissolving nd evaporating. When solids (the solute) dissolve in water (the solvent), the solution becomes stronger and as more solid dissolves a saturated solution is produced. This means that nomore solute can be dissolved in the solvent. Hot solvents can dissolve more than cool nes. If the solvent is left to cool down ad the water evaporate, the solute molecules begin to link up and grow into crystals.

Gestation Periods

Victorians

Y5 have been learning all about the Victorians this half-term. We have been finding out about the people who lived in our community during Victorian times using the Census report from 1901. We have been interested to learn all about the different families that lived nearby. We discovered that some households even had domestic servants!

 

Our Victorian topic was brought to life with a trip to the National Coal Mining Museum. We enjoyed an underground tour of the mine and learnt all about what life was like for miners in Victorian times. We discovered that many Victorian children had to work in the mine instead of going to school. Conditions were very dangerous and they spent many hours working underground. We realised that we are very lucky to go to school rather than be sent to work!

History Van

Last week, Year 5 invited the History Van to school to help us finish off our topic of World War 2 with a day of hands-on learning about what it was like to experience the war as a child in Sheffield.  The children took part in an air-raid drill, put out fires (not real, of course!) from incendiary bombs, took refuge in a community shelter and cleaned up their houses after the air-raid was over.  They learned about evacuation to the countryside, how the Sheffield Blitz affected the city’s landscape and even how to translate German and communicate in Morse Code! 

Our day was led by Kathryn, our guest history specialist, who really made the learning come alive.  Here are some photos of the children getting involved.

Kelham Island Visit

As part of our history learning this term, Y5 spent the day at Kelham Island Industrial Museum in Sheffield.  We had a great time experiencing lots of different aspects of life for children in World War Two.  We became Air Raid Wardens, firefighters, members of the Home Guard and Royal Observer Corps, and got a real taste of how everyone, children included, managed during the war.

As well as all this, we had a tour of the museum and got to meet ‘Colonel Walker’ and Mrs Wilson, our excellent guides for the day.  We had a great time and have learned a lot!

Rainforest Visitor

On Monday the 23rd April, Year 5 were visited by Mr Renzo Paladines, who works for Naturaleza y Cultura Internacional (Nature and Culture International).  He gave a presentation to the children about the work his charity does to promote conservation of the Amazon Rainforest.  This linked back to our geography learning from last term. 

Mr Paladines had an attentive audience who were full of questions, and we are very grateful to him for giving up some of his time to visit us, before he returns to Ecuador to continue his important work.

Victorian Classroom Visit

Both Year 5 classes recently visited a Victorian Classroom.  We were guests of Miss Sharp, a very strict Victorian teacher who was kind enough to let us experience what life was like as a Victorian child in school.  We had a great time finding out about how Victorian children learned, played and, most importantly, how they were rewarded and punished!  Here are some photos of our day.

Design and Technology

In Design and Technology this term, Year 5 have been learning about the importance of a healthy diet.  As part of our learning, we have made bread – this drew on a lot of our skills and learning, including reading and maths, and the end result was very tasty indeed!

Now that we have made them, we will be writing a set of instructions for others to do the same – but will theirs taste as good as ours?...

Y5 Victorian Classroom Visit

Y5 have been lucky enough to time-travel back to the Victorian Era and visited the Victorian Classroom at Springfield School. Children experienced life as Victorian scholars, wearing Victorian school clothes, experiencing Victorian lessons and Victorian playtimes. All the children took on Victorian names, and everyone had a role to play with the acting. Some children even had the misfortune of discovering some of the Victorian punishments, including the finger stocks and the cane. Luckily, modern schools don’t use those punishments!

Welcome to Y5

Welcome back!  We hope you and your family have enjoyed a restful summer break.  We have a very exciting year ahead of us in Year 5 and we will just describe here a little of what we will be doing this half-term.  Our theme until Christmas is Victorian Sheffield and much of our learning will be linked to this.

Thornbridge 2016

At the beginning of March, both of the Year 5 classes went on a residential trip to Thornbridge Outdoors in the Peak District.  Children had a really action packed (and often muddy!) time taking part in a variety of activities.  Here are some photos which give a taster of what they did.

Inter-class Gymnastics competition

Over the course of this term, during our indoor P.E. sessions, we have been learning a variety of gymnastic skills.  We combined these into short routines and held an inter-class competition.  Look out for some of our rising stars at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games!

Autumn 2

Classic Nonsense Poetry

In Year 5, we have been reading the classic poem ‘The Mad Gardener’s Song’ by Lewis Carroll.  This has inspired us to write our own nonsense poems, which are on display outside the Y5 classrooms.  The poems have a pattern of syllables and rhymes – can you spot what it is?

Victorians

Y5 have begun their topic on The Victorians with a focus on a Victorian Story: Street Child. It is about a young boy, Jim Jarvis who has a very challenging life and experiences some of the worst things of the Victorian times: child labour, the workhouse, losing his family and a lack of education.

We have written our own versions of chapter one and researched the Victorian times using our new laptops.

See photographs of our trip in the Year 5 gallery.
