Our first Science topic is forces. We can't wait to investigate these and carry out some exciting observations and experiments.
To investigate and observe the effect of air resistance, we have designed and built parachutes. We predict the bigger the parachute, the more air resistance and therefore the slower the fall.
Monday: Words of the Week given out.
Tuesday: Spelling test and new spellings given out.
Friday: Grammar and maths homework given out. Frappe Friday.
At Caldershaw we know how important reading is: not only to enable us to find out about the world and research specific topics, but (most importantly) in giving life long pleasure. Please read a book every night and record it in your reading record (remember: all books count). A few pages will do, but make sure you understand what you've read!
AND remember each time your book is signed you will collect a point towards being our Fra and help your class to become Reading Champions!
WORLD WAR II
Our first topic in Year 5 is World War II. We have found out about the Allies and Axis and some famous leaders. Look at our amazing fact-files!
Year 5 wore yellow to raise awareness of a positive mental wellbeing.
