Y5-Buggy day DT

Today has been full on for year 5!

We have finally found the opportunity to lead our Autumn term Design and Technology unit focussing around the design and manufacturing of drag racing buggies.

With a slightly later start we had a great job squeezing as much in as we could! The entire of year 5 have been amazing! We started by evaluating previous drag racing vehicles and looked how forces affect them, with a great link to our previous forces module in science, using this knowledge to develop a design brief.

We then worked as a group to create a team design with a focus on what our groups project will have specifically.

Following this we looked back at our knowledge around circuits to give our buggies power and created a simple circuit.

Following this we needed to build up the chassis of our buggy, with a strong focus on how to ensure it continues to meet our design brief.

And finally today, we started to focus on an aesthetic touch of our buggies, ensuring they followed the theme our team had suggested.

Unfortunately, that was all we had time for, so tomorrow afternoon we will be joining together again to have the exciting drag races, giving the children the opportunity to evaluate their design and build process.

Take a look at the photos from today and keep your eyes open for some exciting races tomorrow.

It was a brilliant day and as DT co-ordinator it was amazing to see the skills, discussion and use of vocabulary. As well as a bucket load of team work!!!

Well done year 5!

Year 5 Friday Home learning

Dear Parents and Year 5’s,

The engagement of year 5 home learning has been amazing so far!

Please bear in mind the following:

  • These activities are a guide for what you might work through with as a year 5 child.
  • You may wish to complete additional work using the links provided on the school website or suggestions on the NJS Home Learning information page in the Home Learning books.
  • If the activities provided are too challenging or too much for your child, please adapt the work or amount that you do. There is no obligation to complete every activity set each day. Sometimes the tasks may take too long – don’t feel as though you have to complete them all that day, you can always catch up tomorrow! Likewise some of the tasks set are designed to be completed across the week – we have tried our best to emphasise this on the slides!
  • TTRS and learning off by heart times-tables, general reading, spelling patterns previously sent home are all also very important – these can be completed across the week to suit.

All three teachers are looking forward to seeing your work – please feel free to email any work you have completed to us so we can look at it. Also let us know if you would like any work sharing as we can publish it on our school website (the year 5 page) so other children in the year group can see what you have completed.

Make the most of this extra time at home to enjoy and learn things you wouldn’t normally have time for.

Stay safe and keep smiling!

Love Miss H, Mr M and Mr L x

World Record Breaking TTRS

I just received an email explaining that the Guinness World Record company have decided to add a record attempt for the most questions answered in one minute on Time Tables Rock Stars.

I know that there are many of you who could have a very good attempt at this and could attempt to be a world record breaker. Make sure you clearly follow the rules if you are interested and want your attempt to be counted.

I would advise some serious practise to make you as quick as you can be!

I have attached the letter explaining the rules and how to enter this competition!

Guinness World Records – TT Rock Stars – Letter to Pupils

Whether you are going to enter or not, why don’t you set your TTRS timer to 1 minute and see how many you can answer. Then you can compare with the record breaking attempt!

I cant wait to hear what scores you managed. My highest today was 38… can you beat that to start with?

All the best,

Mr Lawson
