Year 5 today did a lesson on estimating capacity. They measured the sizes of different containers in ml’s. They found out what a spoon could hold and then found what a cup and a jug could hold. Afterwards they could determine the size of the various bottles in the class according to their own judgement. A fun and practical way to engage their own predictions.
Miss Birmingham’s feeling was correct. On their return to the class room on Wednesday, Year 5 discovered a crime scene.
Yellow markers were found where evidence had been discovered and on the teachers desk was a very clear space which used to house the class computer.
Luckily the criminal had put his fingers in the ink pad – still out after yesterdays science lesson. He left inky finger marks all over the tables. A note was found saying “Sorry I need this today” and a muddy footprint was found by the door.
One person is thought to have witnessed event through the window.
Will this witness come forward? Were year 5 able to use their scientific forensic skills to solve this crime? Who will be able to report all the answers to this mystery?
Miss Birmingham has a feeling year 5 will be able to!
What an amazing visit from the mad Professor himself. He had come all the way back from visiting Ancient Greece to tell Year 5 Kestrels all about it.
We learnt about the ancient Greek coins and heard some amazing facts already from the class about the Gods. The professor showed us the different work they did; sewing, fishing, selling and making armour.
The girls were thrilled to hear that in ancient Greece they wouldn’t have gone to school. That was until they realised they would have had to clean and wash and cook for the boys then marry a 40 yearold at 14 years old.
Some children had a go at dressing like the ancient Greeks did.
Look at our pictures and please comment about something you remember Year 5!
Thank you to all in Year 5 who handed in their finished room designs. There has been an enormous amount of creativity seen here and they all look great. Don’t just take it from us, have a look at the pictures of the finished products!
