Year 5/6

Newsletter - Autumn 1 2017

Welcome to Year 5/6 2017-2018.

Our team: Ms Lord, Ms Chadwick, Mrs Hankey, Miss Vose, Mrs Simmonds, Mrs Sheldon,

Mrs Wilkinson, Mrs Bartels and Mrs Nuttall.

 

 

Welcome to the Year 5/6 page. We look forward to sharing many special memories and learning experiences with you through this page.

Today, year 5/6 took part in a coding session with Mrs Truelove. We designed their own on code bugs, all to do with our topic; World War II. In our previous lesson, we learnt how to code simply, but in our lesson today, we were taught more advanced skills within our learning. 

 

We wrote German codes on our code bugs and showed our classmates. Mrs Truelove also taught us how to download our favourite messages onto the code bug website which is www.codebug.org.uk. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon. It was fantastic!

Today year 5 took part in the eagle eye project. They learnt about road safety, safety in cars and how to be a safe driver. In small groups the children then constructed their own vehicle using card. Some groups were allowed to experiment with reinforcements in order to keep their car as safe as possible for the passengers.

 

Once created we constructed a fair test to see if any of the car would stand a crash. We quickly identified which part of the car needed reinforcements.
