Year 5 have had a wonderful week developing their Science and Maths skills. As you can see from the photographs we had a great week, discovering and learning.
We identified and classified the trees in our school grounds using observation skills and branching keys. The children learned how to group leaves using the correct scientific vocabulary. We were surprised to find so many different types of tree in such a small area.
We measured tree height using measuring tools and percentages. Back in class we recorded our results in charts.
On Wednesday we shared our research about a special Scientist or Mathematician and the whole class learned about some amazing discoveries and people.
We also looked at the Fibonacci sequence in Maths and linked this to Science by investigating the number of petals on flowers. We also created some Fibonacci spirals and learnt about other spirals created from circles. We then were amazed to discover the number of spirals we could find in the natural world.
We also learned about Financial matters in our Maths this week – focusing on budgeting monthly bills and learning about the uses of debit and credit cards.
