Year 5 had to design a den that was wind and water proof using the resources in school.
We had to show a lot of resilience, teamwork and problem solving skills.
Y5 had a fantastic day yesterday collaborating with their Y5 buddies.
At Bede Burn, the children utilised their teamwork skills to complete maths challenges.
At St Oswalds, we applied our map skills in orienteering.
Year 5 created Lego robots using WeDo 2 coding programme on a tablet.
They designed, controlled and/or stimulated physical systems (adding sensors, motors, sounds, vibrations, winches). They then detected and corrected programming errors and explained algorithms used.
Year 5 have started their new Science unit ‘Animals Including Humans’ by identifying the key milestones in human development.
Year 5 read two versions of the traditional Nativity Story and compared them to find similarities and differences.
Christmas around the world – Australia. Many Australians celebrate Christmas at the beach, drinking fruit punch and playing outdoor sports like volley ball. Australians send Christmas cards with animals (native to Australia) on. A favourite Christmas desert is Lexington’s- a sponge covered in coconut – we tasted some.
Y5 enjoyed listening to, composing and performing Christmas hits!
