Money Week activities have included a visit to our class from Mrs Chambers to help us think about how best to save our pocket money and even doing chores for our parents in order to save up for something special. Year 5 have been focusing on 'Fair Trade' so we brought in a variety of items and had a chocolate taste testing session.
We used torches to find out if different materials are transparent, translucent or opaque.

Measuring in the classroom
Working in pairs we estimated and then used our rulers and measuring tapes to find items in the classroom which were shorter than, longer than or exactly a quarter of a metre. We also measured our partner's height. Everyone enjoyed this practical Numeracy lesson.
We played the 'Yes / No' questioning game to find out which famous person or character was on our card.

Science Week Activities
We have been enjoying lots of different science activities in class. We are growing cress, leaf salad, peas and tomatoes as well as experimenting with celery and food colouring. Our 'Blobs in a bottle' group work created a lava lamp effect using oil, water, food colouring and alka seltzer. We even managed to get a hard boiled egg to fit through the neck of a glass bottle when Mrs Dunlop lit pieces of paper with a match.
