Eggnaut Experiment

5RP spent a busy afternoon making an eggnaut- a safe capsule for an egg to return to Earth. They dropped them from the balcony and did well to keep four out of five eggs intact. Well done 5RP.

They moved onto the nature area - digging, playing, climbing trees and building shelters.

Designing Eggnauts

Today, Year 5 had a very busy time. They started in the studio designing an eggnaut. Our eggnaut had to withstand re-entry into our atmosphere and landing on the Earth. Keeping the egg safe was the priority and it could be no larger than 30x30cm and weigh no more than 500g. The children developed clear ideas and many included parachutes to try to combat the force of gravity. They dropped these from the balcony. Our results were exceptional, only one egg had a little crack in it. Good job Year 5!

Year 5 moved onto the nature area, having fun, digging, making flag poles, looking for bugs and playing on the swing and see-saw. A game of eagle eye followed which was a success for some, whilst others were found quickly.

A productive morning

Year 5 had an enjoyable morning in the nature area. Firstly, they moved pots, trays, baskets, bird boxes donated from Mrs Miller's neighbour. We are hoping to use these in our new sensory garden. Year 5 then discussed how materials react to fire, they discussed reversible and irreversible changes and were excited to observe what happened to plastic, paper, tissues, biscuits, marshmallows, foil and cardboard. After this, all the children enjoyed a smore - marshmallow encased in biscuits. Looking at materials again, Year 5, in groups, designed kites and as the wind became stronger tested them. They made improvements and assessed how they flew.

World Book Day


Science- Plants

To see how much we could remember about the parts of plants, we had to guess the part of the plant from the clue and then create it out of collage materials.

Rosa Parks in the Nature Area

5RP had a busy day in the nature area. Firstly, they explored, finding fairy doors and bird boxes. Next, we lit a fire and discussed what materials would burn and the reasons for this. We discussed the properties of these materials and used a wide vocabulary - reversible, irreversible changes and flammable. After this, we all enjoyed smores - some for the first time!

To finish the morning, we built our own dens, again thinking carefully about the materials we used. In the afternoon, we evaluated these dens, again thinking of the properties of each material. Our last activity of the day was to build and test a kite. As it was a windy day, it gave us good flying conditions but we had a mixture of success!

Paper Gliders

5 Walter Tull took part in a STEM challenge to create a paper glider. They had to design, make, test and evaluate their gliders in teams and had lots of fun.
