During today’s Computing with Mr Baddhan, Kestrels have been learning about Microsoft Excel and how it can do alot of Maths work for you.
The children worked through some historical weather data and added it into Excel. The date they were focusing on was the average rainfall for a specific year. They then were shown how to get the average, sum and create a bar chart.
The children worked out a quick of doing this through formulas on Excel.
In science, year 5 have been investigating the best sun cream to use on their skin. They smothered some UV beads in various factors of sun cream and put the beads into the sunshine to see which turned colour, showing the sun’s harmful rays. We’re waiting for the results!
Anti-Bullying week kicked off in year 5 today with the children discussing how the school ensures children are safe both physically and mentally while they are in school.
They came up with many suggestions detailing all the help and support they receive and are currently coming up with ideas for their placards that we will produce for the anti-bullying march on Friday, in the school playground.
They also completed the KS2 online survey for Mr Baddhan. We’re all looking forward to more fun activities during the week. Stay tuned!

Year 5 have been looking into the importance of being environmentally friendly in order to preserve our precious planet. They are extremely knowledgable about how effective recycling and reusing materials would be.
