Height investigation

Last week Year 5 Kestrels took part in a series of activities to do with our topic of Animals (including humans) They studied animals and their skeletons, and compared them to that of a human. Then they carried out an investigation to see if being taller makes you a better jumper. They children worked in teams , measured each otter’s legs and then measured the jump each child was able to make. Later this week, we will study the results and plot the information onto a line graph.

Constructing skeletons

Year 5 Kestrels have continued with their topic of Animals, including Humans, and have been constructing their very own skeleton. They have learnt all about the different bones we have in our bodies and what our joints are called. Next week, we’ll be carrying out an investigation to see how strong our bones are (the bones won’t be human of course!)

Bone shapes

Year 5 have started their new topic in Science – Animals including humans. They worked in teams to draw round a child and we”re then asked to draw on all the bones we have in our body and label them, if they could. They did really well apart from a few suspicious looking ‘bone shapes’ on one or two bodies!

Art using digital media

Year 5 have started their new Art project this week. The children are learning how to create Art using digital media. They have been given a program to trial to see what effects that can come up with. Later in the week, they will be editing a photograph that they have taken themselves. I’m sure you’ll agree, the results are pretty impressive.
