Spring 1

Week 1



Week 1

What a fantastic start to Year 5! We have got stuck into some challenging work and have had a fun introduction to our new topics. We investigated dissolving different materials in liquid to form a solution and loved working scientifically to find out what would happen.

Week 2

We are celebrating National Literacy Day and we have made some personal bookmarks for our class reading books!



Investigating soluble and insoluble materials

This week, we worked scientifically to find out which materials are soluble and insoluble. We had to find out the best ways to separate materials in a mixture.


Week 3 and 4

The children have been working hard practising for their assembly which was a huge success. We have some very talented children in Year 5, they all worked extremely hard to show the school what we have been learning in  our topic lessons about the Vikings.

Week 5

We have been learning about reversible and irrversible changes this week. The children have had their scientist hats on this term and have been carrying out various investigations in relation to Properties and Changes of Materials. During our parent afternoon, we investigated chemical reactions which create irriversible changes. The children mixed together warm milk and vinegar to create a new material: Casein Plastic.


We also really enjoyed taking part in World Mental Health Day, by wearing Yellow and designing our own Growth Mindset brains where we wrote positive statements to challenge the 'Fixed Mindset' brain.

Week 6

WOW, it's the final week of Autumn 1! Where has this term gone?! 

We have started the week off with a trip to the library where we researched information about Viking Life using the library resources. We have some very keen librarians in the class who mentioned that they couldn't wait to go to the library in their own time.
