Roller coasters!

To begin our new ILP ‘Scream Machine’ this week, 5W created a simulated roller coaster in our classroom. Using on screen real footage of a roller coaster ride and a computer-generated simulation, we sat in our ‘cars’ and experienced falling, twisting and looping movements, thinking about the emotions, feelings and sensations involved. Just like the real thing!

Year 5 Science

This week, children in 5W and 5S met in the Learning Hub for a science lesson. Each class had been studying different life-cycles (of Mammals and Amphibians) and they were given the opportunity to ask each other questions and find out about what each class had learned. Some children also chose to address the room and present their findings. Classes
