Making a mess in Y5

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been busy getting messy in Y5 in different and exciting ways. In science, as part of our unit of work on properties and changes of materials, we learnt about non-Newtonian fluids and investigated Oobleck, a mixture of corn flour and water that has some very interesting properties. Our classrooms have also been full of old socks, wool and scraps of material as we have started to create our puppets in DT. We're looking forward to seeing the finished articles!

We've been journalists in English - covering the brutal murder of Banquo in Macbeth, statisticians in maths - interpreting line graphs, and have learnt to safely perform forward and backward rolls in PE. To top it all off, the children's Djembe drumming sounds superb!
