Welcome to Year 5
Welcome back to school. We hope to be using the website to keep you apprised of events at school that the children have taken part in, and also of what they will be learning from term to term. Please let us know if there is anything specific you would like to see with regards to the curriculum.
Fly, seeds! Fly!
As part of our science topic of living things, Year 5 have tried to do better than Mother Nature this week as we designed our own flying seeds. We have learned that seeds can be dispersed (which means spread over a wide area or in different directions) through many different method like 'Bursting', by water and even with the help of animals who eat the seeds and then... well, you know!
We decided to see which seed design could fly the furthest. We only used 1 post it note and had to use all our scientific knowledge to make it be the one that 'flew' the furthest using only the 'wind' (a fan!). Well done to the eventual winners whose seeds flew well over 1 metre from the drop point!
