Our year 5 scientists have been hard at work this half term exploring the Properties of Materials. This week saw them planning an experiment based on a material's ability to work as a thermal insulator. We want to find out what type of material will keep a hot drink warm for the longest amount of time, the results are eagerly awaited by staff for their morning tea or coffee!
Year 5 have been working on their History projects again this morning, gathering information to include in their presentations which will be shown to the Cranborne Historical Society. Here are some of their thoughts about the work they have been carrying out.
"I really like getting to focus on one area of Cranborne history." Emily Z
"It's nice getting to work as a group with different people." Daisy W
"I like working as a group as we can split the tasks that need doing. I'm working on the PowerPoint with Jacob and Erin and Emma are getting all the facts for us to include." Sam O
Please add any of your thoughts about the project in the comments.
While one group was carrying out the Acrostic Poems, another was in the process of attempting an assault course while blindfolded. Buddies had to work together to navigate the assault course, giving only verbal instructions to each other to guide them on their way. Here are some pictures of our buddies working together.
Buddy time came early this week as the children worked together on their final activity with their year 8 buddies. 5JH spent the session making funny acrostic poems with our year 8 buddies and we thought it would be great to share some of them with you. Please let us know what you think, leave us a comment and we will reply next week!
This week's Buddy Time Challenge was to create the tallest paper tower using only two pieces of A4 paper, sellotape/glue and the creative minds of our Year 5 & 8s. Well done to Louis and Josh the winners of Room 2 with a tower reaching the impressive height of 27 inches! Here are some of towers in their building phase. .
Year 5 are working with some big numbers at the moment and thinking of different ways to solve problems.
Yesterday they went onto the playground and added some huge numbers using chalk and sports cones!
Why not try something similar at home?
So far in Computing at CMS we have focused on getting to know the school computer system and also creating PowerPoints all about ourselves. The PowerPoints could include extras such as photos from the internet, hyperlinks and transitions. Here are some PowerPoints that have been created in lessons. Please leave comments with your feedback.
McDonalds' have 88,642 Chicken Selects, each fridge can hold 8,000 individual chicken selects. We have sold 58,062 so far.
