Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Year 5

We have had an excellent Spring Term learning about Earth and Space during the first half term and Extreme Earth during the second half term.

In Literacy, children have created an information poster of Our Solar System, written their own space adventure stories, written a biography of Tim Peake and created a diary entry of a mission into Space.

In Science, during the first half-term children have explored fair-testing, where they had to build their own balloon model car and test its speed of travel.

During the second half-term, we have explored Forces.

Designing and making our paper helicopter spinners proved to be great fun. During our experiment to test the effects of air resistance, we had to make predictions, consider fair-testing, make clear observations and draw conclusions.

Year 5 worked exceptionally hard with their creative modelling skills. They thoroughly enjoyed designing and making their rockets, papier mache Planet models for our class display and their Planet Mobiles.

Children have also created their own mnemonics for learning the order of The Planets and extended their observational drawing skills.
