Making 3D Boxes

Year 5 were set the challenge of making a structurally stable 3d box this week using paper but no scissors, glue or sellotape. They had to use conjecturing, working backwards and visualising skills. Well done Year 5- we ended up with some beautiful gift boxes to go under the tree!

We got inspired by images and stories of mighty Viking and Anglo-Saxon warriors.

What’s Been Happening -Year 5 – Autumn Term 1

Written by Year 5 reporters.

In Year 5 this half term, our topic has been Space. We have been learning lots of incredible things about our super Solar System.

In Maths this half term, we began by learning about place value up to a million including negative numbers and rounding. After that, we learnt methods for addition and subtraction and finally we learnt about different ways of representing data in statistics. We have drawn and interpreted tables and line graphs.

This half term in English, we wrote a narrative about a lonely baboon on the majestic moon. We have also been writing a newspaper report about the moon landing in 1969 and the 3 American astronauts who went on the Apollo 11 mission.

In Science, we have learnt mostly about the three celestial bodies which are the Sun, the Moon and the Earth. We have learnt that there are different phases of the moon depending on which lit up part of the Moon we see as the Earth spins on its axis. We know about the relative sizes of the planets in our Solar System and the orbital paths of the Earth and Moon.

We hope you enjoyed hearing about our amazing work in our classes. Here are some pictures for you to look at.
