A big thank you to all those who submitted their wonderful water cycle models and English film trailers. They were fantastic and very amusing to the class. Da iawn all! nosmiley


Pupils are to login to ‘ActiveLearn’. smiley

Year 5 this term have been looking at solids, liquids and gases, investigating how they can change their state with different processes. As we progress through our science work we will be focusing on the water cycle. Pupils are to design their own 3D model of the water cycle as part of their project work. There are lots of examples on the internet and YouTube, showing you how to do this. The models should not be over 30cm x 30cm in size. no

Pupils are able to present the water cycle through a detailed powerpoint presentation.

Pupils are to complete a movie trailer for the story 
‘This isn’t a fairytale’. 
iMovie is a great app for completing this task and provide them with step by step support when adding music, pictures, videos and text. The trailer is to be no longer than 30 seconds! Pupils are to present themselves in the trailer as Luke and reflect on his adventure! I look forward to watching the trailers. smiley

I hope you all have a very relaxing half term!

For homework this week, pupils are to complete given reasoning questions in their homework book and play the game below. Click on the link and it will direct you to the top marks website. 
The reasoning questions are examples from previous test papers. This will build pupils confidence and allow them to become familiar with different types of questions. 

This week I would like pupils to write a diary entry about their trip to the ‘Big Pit’. They are to reflect on the overall experience, focusing upon the inclusion of feelings, different senses and what they enjoyed the most from their trip. They can start their diary entry with ‘Dear diary'.
