    Insulation Experiment

    We did an experiment where we wrapped cups of tea in various materials (and left one without any material) and recorded the temperature of the tea every 4 minutes This helped us determine which material was the most effective insulator of heat. We shared the results with people who had a different material and used them to create a line graph of our data.


    Year 5 Nurture Group

    As a HOOK lesson for our new Talk 4 Writing book, FArTHER by Grahame Baker-Smith, we looked at objects that fly.  We then followed instructions for ‘How To Make A Kite’ to make our own kites and then flew them in the playground!

    In the Year 5 Nurture Group, we have been looking at different types of instructional texts.  We followed the instructions below to make our own paper lanterns.  This was linked to our English Talk 4 Writing book, ‘Journey by Aron Becker.’  It is about a girl who goes on an amazing adventure!  She comes across beautiful, golden, lanterns on one of her adventures into a magical land.


    Our Current Topic is; It’s a Material World
