This week in Topic, Year 5 have explored their new topic ‘Material Madness’. They have investigated the properties of a range of materials, including a non-Newtonian liquid, as well as seeing which materials are the best thermal insulators and conductors. They also investigated changes of state by making their own strawberry ice cream, which tasted delicious!
This week in Maths, Year 5 have been converting between different units of time (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years). At times, this has involved some complicated calculations! They have worked really hard on this and have also solved problems involving different units of time.
Well Done Year 5!
