For science this term the children have been working on experimenting with different materials to see if they were; durable, transparent, opaque, magnetic, permeable, impermeable or if it conducts electricity. 
The children had great fun testing the different materials. 


In English this term we have been looking at the book Way Home. During this book, the children were hot seating and discussing how Shane was feeling in the book.  The children really enjoy hot seating in Year 5.


In PE Year 5 have been looking at Gymnastics and  they have been learning new balances. The children were asked to put the balances into a choreographed sequence within their group.
