We would like you to go out and about and see as many rivers, beaches and mountains as you can. (Please take pictures to bring in and show us!)

Look at:

  • The shapes of the mountains
  • How people use rivers (swimming, boats, sports etc)
  • The coastline (where the river meets the sea)
  • The shape of the coastline / beach
  • The shape and journey of the river

You could research:

  • How are mountains formed?
  • How are beaches formed?
  • What types of mountain are there?
  • What happens along the journey of a river?

 

You can present what you find out in any form. Poster/ project / notes / labelled photographs etc.

Please be ready to bring in and share what you have found out with the rest of year 5 in our geography lessons. (Tuesday June 5th).

Celebration Assembly!

Today in our Celebration assembly we celebrated the hard work and achievements of children in year 5!

This week they we been working on turning our non-chronological reports about animals into non-fiction books. We have learnt about and compared the life cycles of mammals, amphibians, insects, birds and reptiles. In maths we have been learning how to calculate the perimeter of a range of different shapes!

Congratulations to this weeks role models and TT Rockstars winners!

 

Eggy fun in Science

In science this term we have been looking at life cycles. Today we discussed the life cycle of a bird and how they lay eggs.

We took a closer look at the different parts of the eggs and discussed what they were used for!

We then compared different life cycles.

Did you know most amphibians, birds, reptiles and insects lay eggs?
