Family Learning Week

Year 5 have had a very exciting family learning week. We have carried out a range of activities where we have had to apply our scientific and design knowledge to solve problems. On Tuesday, we designed tiny breath powered rockets.  We worked hard to add features that allowed them to travel the greatest distance possible. Wednesday saw us develop tin foil boats using our knowledge of upthrust and gravity. Finally on Thursday we solved a mystery using the separation technique of chromatography. During each session we came to recognise how vital it was to work as a team and listen to each other carefully. 

Thank you to all the parents who made the time to attend. It was wonderful to learn alongside you all.
