Year 5!

On Tuesday 13th October, Year 5 went to Benhall Park to study the environmental changes to the local area. We built habitats for invertebrates, we explored the trees, we looked for environmental changes and most importantly we had a great time learning about Science outdoors! We can't wait to go back again! 

Science - Invertebrate Hunt

We went to the Forest school area to carry out an invertebrate hunt. We used a key to classify them. We then caught a specimen to study.

Music - Living on a Prayer

We have been enjoying our adapted Music unit. We have been studying the song 'Living on a Prayer.' We have loved learning to sign the song (rather than sing) and we have begun to learn the notes B, A and G to play along using glockenspiels. It has been great fun to learn new skills. 

Science Enquiry - Do different liquids cause tooth decay?

In Science this term, Year 5 have been learning about 'Animals Including Humans.' During this unit we learnt about our teeth and their different functions. We then asked the question 'Do different liquids affect our teeth?' We wanted to find out which liquids can cause tooth decay. We used milk, water, orange juice and cola. Each group was given 4 boiled eggs. We used boiled eggs as the shell of the egg reacted in a similar way to the enamel on our teeth. To make it a fair test we measured 100 ml of each liquid into a cup and placed the eggs in it. We spent the next five days observing our eggs to see what would happen. It was great fun and very messy when the eggs shells began to change. We were very surprised to find out that orange juice caused the most decay and that milk protects teeth, making the shell of the egg stronger.
