'Year 5 were revisiting the science topic of 'materials.' We were carrying out an investigation to test the 'solubility' of substances - how well a solute dissolves in a solvent. We had to make predictions, think about how to make our investigation 'fair' and evaluate the results. We were also learning lots of new science vocabulary.'
Y5 were visiting Spitalfields City Farm to learn about about plants, which is part of our science topic of life cycles. We learnt about the different types of plants, how they reproduce and grow. In addition to flowering plants, we saw runner plants, tubers and plants with bulbs. We created our own recycled plant pots and planted some spinach to take home with us. As no farm visit would be complete without seeing the lovely animals, we also had a chance to see the resident sheep, goats, pigs and donkeys
'In Science, year 5 are learning about life cycles of plants. We were investigating what the different parts of a plant are called, which are part of the plant's reproduction cycle and what happens at each stage of this cycle. We also created our own glossaries to help us broaden our science vocabulary.
