Year 5! What a strange time it is for everyone! We've worked so hard so far this year but school is going to look a little different for the next wee while! As a result, I will be posting different activities every couple of days during this time....hopefully it will keep you busy!
You know how much I love sharks so why don't you have a go at following the step by step guide for drawing a shark and send your pictures in so we can see them!

Don't forget about this great way to practise your times tables!
Another couple of problems for the day!
Watch this clip about why they send animals into space. Should animals be sent into space? Write a balanced argument giving reasons why they should and why they shouldn't be sent into space. Remember to include an introduction, both sides of the argument; paragraphs and modal verbs. Take a photo of your piece and send it in!!
We didn't get to finish reading "Cosmic" in class so I will be posting some audio recordings of the rest of the book in parts! Here's the first part!

Hi Class 5, Happy Monday!
I thought that you might miss our Science on Wednesday so I have attached some fun Science activities for you to do at home with your family. Remember to stay safe when carrying out any practical Science and make sure that you have an adult to help you. I'd love to know what you think about these activities so why not send in pictures or any comments you might have. Have fun!
A Hint for you: The Lava Lamp can be made using sultanas or raisins instead of peanuts, these work just as well!

Happy Thursday Year 5! Mrs Cook here, just a reminder that this Sunday is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week.
As we think about what happened that very first Easter, I thought it would be really lovely to share some ideas.
Thinking especially about Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, create scenes from these events. You could draw, paint, build Lego, craft, sculpt or any other creative way you can think of.
I would love to see your creations too!
Stay Safe. I miss you all.

Year 5 usually visit the Ouseburn area of Newcastle as part of their study of the Victorians. Did you know that there is a tunnel that runs underneath the city? It's called the Victoria tunnel and was used to transport coal from Spital tongue down to the river! During the second world war, it was used as an air raid shelter to protect thousands of Newcastle citizens!
Have a look at the short video clip where you can see inside it!
More Fun Home Science Activities
Hi Class 5, It's been a while since I gave you any fun Science to try at home so I thought you might like to give these light activities a go. Ask an adult to help you and remember to always work safely. Maybe you could let me know how you get on and what you think of the activities on your class blog.
