Year 5 have had loads of fun investigating, exploring, predicting, testing and analysing during Science Week.  We began by researching different ocean zones and creating giant posters for each – including some of the weird and wonderful creatures which live there. We then travelled the equivalent depth of the deepest part of the ocean by doing laps on the yard scaled down by the power of ten. So one 20 metre lap was equivalent to travelling 200 metres.

We explored how friction can be used to move inanimate objects by using balloons and paper newts – recreating part of the story of Matilda. In addition we have designed our very own lunar vehicles, thinking about the tyres needed and how it could be transported to the moon in the first place.

Most importantly we have all received First Aid training in CPR and how to use a defibrillator. We all agree that Science Week has been amazing fun and packed with learning.

Year 5 have been investigating reversible and irreversible changes. They have also been looking at a variety of mixtures and solutions and how different ingredients interact with one another. In addition to creating a range of solutions and testing if they are reversible we also inflated a balloon using just yeast, sugar and warm water in a bottle. We then investigated different ways of making larger or smaller balloons or ones which would remain inflated for longer. Pupils created and tested different scenarios. We been working on how to write a scientific question and then setting up an investigation in order to try to find an answer.

Take a look at us packing the food we have been bringing in since the start of term with our homework. It was brilliant to see where our food is going to and to personally pack it up ready to be distributed to people. We loved visiting Spacious Place and thinking about others and how we might be able to help more in future.
