Thank you so much to Aine for putting her own money towards buying the class a collection of The Treehouse books. As part of her role as class librarian, Aine noticed that lots of pupils were enjoying the Treehouse series so she decided to use some of her pocket money to buy a few extra books for the class. What an amazing act of kindness, thank you Aine.
States of Matter
In Science on Monday, pupils investigated soluble materials. They had fun playing with oozing oobleck and pre-planned their observations and what would change or stay the same for each experiment to keep the test fair.
Is there life on Mars?
On Tuesday, Year 5 pupils took part in a workshop to investigate whether there was life on Mars. After taking part in a lesson on what life on other planets would be like and finding out a little bit about the current Perseverance mission, we did our own practical experiment using "space soil" to find out what life really needs.
