Welcome Back!

We hope you all had an enjoyable Easter break and are now looking forward to your final term as Y5 pupils. Wow! What a great topic we have to finish the year with. Another way to learn more about the Ancient Greeks is to read the 'Percy Jackson' series of stories written by Rick Riordan, the first of which is 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief'. You might also want to check out the author's website where there are some great activities to do as well. Click on the link below to access it:

Homework

Remember! Homework expectations are clear. Each child is asked to complete a minimum of 4 reads per week. Pupils are also expected to practise their spellings and times tables. In addition to this, there is a selection of topic-based homework tasks to enjoy. Each child should aim to complete 4 out of the 9 per term. Of course, if they would like to do more, then they should be encouraged.

This term's homework grid is below: 

STEM DAY - We designed and made 'Moon Buggies'

We were given a design brief (our buggies needed to be wind powered) and a budget. Therefore, we had to design our moon buggies carefully considering the materials we could afford to purchase with our 'credit cards' from the shop. We then constructed them and tested them, altering one thing at a time to try and make them as fast as possible. We then raced each other's buggies! See the photos and video below! IT WAS GREAT FUN!
