The past few weeks studying types of volcanoes, volcanologists, tectonic plates, seisometers and the structure of the Earth came to a head this week as year 5 produced these fabulous information sheets all about volcanoes!
As tempting as it was to construct our own volcanoes and create eruptive chemical reactions in science… we instead continued looking at the chemistry of solutions; investigating the solubility of different solvents and experimenting with separating soluble substances.
We began looking at tenths of a whole in terms of decimal representation this week. You can find our maths sheets here:
Our spelling focus was ‘ious endings, a requirement of UKS2. Here is our spellings list:
STEM Day Thursday 25th November 2021
We would be most grateful if you could find and bring from home any of the following for our STEM projects in year 5:
- Plastic bottle tops (e.g. milk container tops)
- Teddies or other small zipline riders!
English: We will be watching edited clips from the film The Impossible and looking at the impact of tsunamis & flooding on communities.
Maths: Continuing with decimal place value and skills (e.g. adding and subtracting decimal numbers)
- Swimming for Fuji and Olympus on Thursday.
- PE lessons continue for all classes on their usual days. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school including trainers, hair ties for those with longer hair and tape to cover earrings.
- As the temperature starts to drop, please make sure children have weather appropriate clothes for school, PE and break times.
Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school. Children in Key Stage 2 may bring in healthy snacks for their morning break.
NO NUTS or products containing nuts are to be brought into school
