We have had a busy few and exciting weeks in Y5.

Wind-powered vehicles

We set out in groups to read an extract from our class story and 'unpick' what was being described. It turned out to be a land-sailer, whose pieces we uncovered in the sand and reconstructed. We then went on to design our own land-sailers. It involved, not only drawing the design but labeling it with accurate measurements in order to cost the materials using a price list from which to select the resources to construct our designs. The aim was to make a wind-powered land-sailer that would be the least expensive to make but would travel the farthest! We put all our costings into excel and used the PRODUCT and SUM functions to calculate our costings. And then we tested them — 3 attempts with Mrs Cador's hairdryer in the hall.

Here are our vehicles — they were all very different and we had great fun testing them all. The winning vehicle was designed and made by Megan, Tommy, Tom B and Orlanda. It was a brilliant design! Can you guess which was their vehicle?

We're waiting for a windy, dry day to race them outside!













We joined Weston Primary Y5 pupils for a science presentation by Air Products at Shavington High School and saw some amazing experiments involving the chemical 'nitrogen'.




We celebrated success at Townsports and Sports Day! What fantastic athletes we've got in Year 5! Keelie and Josephine have been our Sportscape Sports Stars of the Week! Well done!


We've been busy researching the Ancient Greek timeline as part of our History/Literacy this last week. We discovered how important it is to learn about Ancient Greece: the origins of the Olympic Games, democracy and voting, the marathon (Battle of Marathon), the influence of theatre and architecture and our very own alphabet...and we haven't touched on famous philosophers and mathematicians...yet!

We're very much looking forward to sharing all our work this year with you at the forth-coming Study Work Sharing Afternoon.
