2018 Autumn ll Term

Year 5 have learnt a great deal about the Victorian era. We have read Oliver Twist, written a diary and two biographies – one about Queen Victoria and another about Charles Dickens. Our understanding of forces has increased through our experimentation and investigations. We made parachutes to test air resistance and plotted our results in a graph.
In maths we have developed our calculation skills and challenged ourselves in speed timetables. We will continue with calculations and statistics next half term.
Next half term we are looking forward to a trip with the UK Space Agency to link with our space topic.
