Year 5 Blog
We have been learning about the language of music through playing the glockenspiel. The notes D and E were used. A crotchet rest is worth one count, a crotchet is worth one count, a minim is worth two counts and the minim rest is worth two counts. We followed the music sheet and played a piece called ‘Drive’.
In science today, we were investigating ‘Thermal Conductors’ as part of our Properties of Materials topic. We use three different materials (wood, plastic, metal) to investigate which material conducted heat the best. We worked this out by observing which spoon allowed the butter to melt the fastest!
Metal won the race!
Which one do you think had the best conductivity?
First Week Back
We had a fantastic first week back in the classroom and played a lot of strategy/maths games with our classmates!
Year 5 are really enjoying getting stuck into the whole class text ‘Tuesday’ where mysterious events happen every Tuesday.
Year 5 Work From Home
Year 5 you are absolute stars! We are so proud of all the fantastic work you are doing while we cannot be together at school. Have a look at the pictures below to see what your friends have been up to.
Journey into Space
Well done for a great assembly this morning Year 5.
Yesterday, I had the best school trip ever!
As I woke full of excitement, I ran downstairs and scoffed down my breakfast. I got my dad to drop me off at the train station. It was our school trip to the Royal Observatory (known as the best school trip ever). But the best bit, by far, was the City Thames Cruise! My excitement grew more and more as I heard the roar of the engine come to life! After all that happened, the boat gently started its journey through the deep water of London.
As we were on the boat, I saw the Elizabeth Tower being re-built. Soon after, a sea-gull was walking on the roof – that really made me laugh! We were ten minutes into the journey and I saw St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower Bridge. Not soon after, Mrs Nugent took us to the top of the boat (it was freezing)! I was staring at the wavy water!
I had a wonderful day!
Last week we had a workshop to make orreries.
The gentleman who ran the workshop, made it exciting and taught us how the Earth orbits the Sun. Plus how the moon orbits the Earth.
Did you know it takes 27 days for the moon to orbit the Earth completely?
It takes 365 1/4 days for the Earth to orbit the Sun. Therefore, making a leap year every 4 years.
After weeks of training, we competed in the local Fun Run at South Oxhey Playing Fields.
Well done to all as the conditions were very difficult and was not an easy course.
An extra well done to the Elite Team: 1st Place – George Harris, 2nd Place: Liam Matthews, 3rd Place: Charlie Hackett-Goldsmith, 1st Greenfields girl: Amber Greasby
World Of Work For Kids
On Wednesday we experienced a day in the life of an adult. Our journey started off by travelling to London by train. We arrived at Kidzania Westfield and was introduced to a town full of opportunities, experiencing many professions. Most of us took ourselves off to University to gain a degree which enabled us to earn even more money. After collecting our wages throughout the day, we were able to spend the Kidzoes in the gift shop. It was a long and tiring but well worth the trip!
Class Assembly 7th November 2019
