Year 5 have had an extremely active half term: we started with a pizza box!
This enquiry led us to explore fractions with a pizza theme. We designed pizzas, ate pizzas and created our own pizza delivery firm.
This was followed by science investigations related to materials, their properties and uses.
We made towers to support eggs, bridges to hold the greatest weight, an umbrella to keep a toy dry. Following on from this, we looked at reversible and irreversible changes (AKA cooking and chocolate eating!)
Developing this theme of materials, we moved on to explore Forces. Gravity, air and water resistance were investigated by activities involving the design and construction of aeroplanes and boats.
