Welcome to Year 5 where all the excitement happens. You will go back in time to explore Ancient Egypt and discover what it was like to live through the Black Death pandemic. Not only that, you will journey out into the far reaches of space and explore different forces here on Earth through our Scream Machine unit.  You will come face to face with super aphid eaters in our Beast Creator topic and experience the highs and lows of farming and land use in our Sow, Grow and Farm topic. We hope you are as excited as we are.

This half term our topic is Scream Machine.

Roll up, roll up. You’re going on a day trip to a theme park, to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair. Learn about the science behind roller coasters and write poems that are shaped as a loop the loop. Design a theme park and show your ideas on a digital map. Time for some mini investigations. Cam mechanisms, pendulums, pulleys and prototypes. Let’s go behind the scenes to see forces at work. Good news. The engineers at ‘Scream Towers’ love your work and want you to build a death defying new drop ride for their theme park. Make a working model and test it out with uncooked eggs. Cracking stuff. Okay, ready to ride? Don’t forget to scream if you want to go faster.
