Creative challenge at home: This half term, Year 5 and 6 have been taking on STEM challenges that support design and engineering skills. Can you build a structure or a vehicle at home using any materials you can get your hands on?

Wellbeing in Year 5 and 6 - We are thinking about what affects health and wellbeing (including mental and emotional health) and how to make choices that give us a balanced lifestyle.

This half term, Year 5 and 6 are reading ‘Trash ‘by Andy Mulligan. The book takes us on a journey of three boys who were faced with the harsh reality of living in a third world country whilst struggling to survive on this journey. It is used in class to give students insight on life in a third world country, giving them a chance to compare life in where we live to life in a country where children are not so blessed.

Year 5/6 Autumn class newsletter

3.10.19 - Dance in PE

24.9.19 - Designing and building a balloon car! How does it work? The balloon powered car is a good example of Newton’s Third Law. The force of the air leaving the balloon pushes the car forward. This was an excellent chance for children to practice their design skills, make predictions, refine and test ideas and work in a creative way as a team.

Drawing maps of our local area - 20.9.19. After we worked with maps, we created maps of the local area.

Working with maps. 19.9.19. The class have been working with maps to build their knowledge of 4- and 6-figure grid references, symbols and keys.

18.9.19 - Outdoor Maths - We reviewed negative numbers outside before the real tempertures hit negative numbers!

10.9.19 - The Leaning Tower of Pasta! Children were challenged in science to think about designing the tallest structure possible using only spaghetti and marshmallows! This activity encouraged the design mindset and supported basic engineering principles.

9.9.19 - Year 5 and 6 have been learning about parts of the body in French (Le Corps). We are currently practicing a song called ‘Jean Petit Qui Danse’ or ‘Little John’s dance’.

4.9.19 - The Egg Drop Challenge! Year 5/6 had to create a structure that would protect a raw egg from a high drop. The investigation was not just fun, it helped our teamwork, encouraged us to think about designs and test designs as well as the relationships between force and momentum.
