                                                       HMRC - Civil Servants

 

Civil Servants from HMRC visited Year 5 this morning to talk to us about the 'World of Work'. We discussed the value of a range of different objects and thought about how money is not always the most important factor when considering these things.

 

The Civil Servants then encouraged us to think about the possible jobs that we would like to do when we are older. We had some imaginative and interesting thoughts ion how we would like to be employed when we grow up.

                                       Animal Zone- Beast Creator

 

 

Year 5 had an amazing treat today when Animal Zone came in to show the different types of Arthropods to help them with this terms topic ‘Beast Creator’. They got to meet a great range of Creepy Crawlies, which included Hissing Cockroaches, Scorpions and Dave the handlers hairy friend; Molly the Tarantula! Dave taught the children about the creatures' habitats, their diets, how to care for them and how they have evolved.

 

Let’s hope Year 5 have remembered it all ready for when they create their own Mini Beast!!

                                                    STEM Week Science

 

Year 5 continued STEM week by carrying out a science experiment to determine whether the height in which a pebble is dropped would affect the size of the crater it made. They first looked at the craters on Mars, which enabled them to make their predictions.

 

Year 5 had lots of fun carrying out the experiment and used the information gathered to create a chart which recorded their findings.

STEM Week Lego

As part of their STEM week activities, Year 5 have been working with Lego to code and programme their own version of a Mars Rover space explorer. Each member of the group had a different role to carry out in order for their space explorer to collect objects.

 

Why not ask your child what their role was?

Year 5 have had a great start their first topic. They visited St Fagans to compare and contrast the clothes of the gentry with those of wealthy farmers. They explored the Tudor buildings and enjoyed looking at how people during those times lived.
