Kestrels have been using excel to handle data. In today’s lesson, we focussed on sorting and filtering data on a database.
Year 5 have enjoyed a reading session with Year 2. They listened to each other read and encouraged each other to foster a love of reading.
This afternoon, year 5 were testing the electrical conductivity, magnetism, transparency and hardness of various material as part of their new topic in science, ‘The properties of materials’.
Today Kestrels we’re learning about the key events that happened during the Viking invasion of Britain. They created a ‘living graph’ to show how the Viking’s control over Britain changed during this period.
Year 5 have been experimenting with levers and pulleys in science today.
Today in history, Kestrels considered the Viking raid on Lindisfarne from the perspective of Anglo-Saxon monks and Viking warriors.
Today Year 5 began their new disposition of Being Open, Honest and Truthful.
Within this, this week we looked at why truth matters.
We started with a game.
Mrs Sabir whispered something to Isla, who passed it on to Charlie, who passed it on to Bethany, who passed it on to Yusif, who passed it on to Olivia, who passed it on to Oliver……who….looked very blank!
Unfortunately, by the time it got to Olivia she had struggled to hear anything and so could not pass anything on to Oliver….
But, what had been said?
Olivia heard- nothing
Yusif heard- something about a sword
Bethany heard- something about a sword
Charlie heard- something about a sock
Isla heard- something about a jellybean and food
So what did Mrs Sabir say? “I put a potato in a sock with a jellybean.”
What does this show us?
The children initially said this showed that it showed people can tell lies when then share information.
But as we discussed it further it was reaaslied that that is not the case- each person did not change what was said on purpose- they did not hear correctly and so passed on incorrect information. Not really the same as telling a lie.
Passing on information can have negative effects- you have to be sure the information is correct.
People who have a faith always look to their faith for answers too. Over the next few weeks we will be looking into different faiths and how they look for the truth in their faith.
Today year 5 were investigating gears and how they can affect the amount of force needed to move something.
