Year 5 Spring 2

It has been a busy half term with lots of new learning!

In English, we have been learning to write suspense stories and information texts. The suspense stories we created were fantastic; we shared these with Year 2, who really enjoyed listening to our stories. 

In DT, we all assembled torches. We first evaluated torches, designed our own and then created ours. We used an electric circuit, including a switch, and several junk materials to create our torch. Although this took a lot of perseverance, they turned out fantastic!

In maths, we have been focusing on decimals and fractions. Lots of children enjoyed these units and were brilliant at them too!

We have been learning about rainforests, focusing on the Amazon Rainforest, in geography. The children were really interested in learning that there are many people living in the rainforests!

In science, we have been investigating materials and their properties. We will be carrying this on after half term.

We had the opportunity to visit Manchester Airport Aerozone. We had lots of fun and learnt lots relating to jobs at the airport. Some of the activities we did were:
- learning some interesting facts about the airport
- role playing different jobs including air traffic control, cabin crew,check in assistants, aircraft Marshalls andsecurity (we used thereal baggage security machines and scanners!)
- to end our day, we explored the new terminal, asked the workers our questions and found out what flights were departing that today!


Have a lovely Easter break!
