This week in Year 5 we have been working hard in all areas of the curriculum.
We completed our focus work on angles in Maths and have now started looking at reading and interpreting data and graphs. In Science, we completed our space learning by discovering why we have day and night. To help us see the effect of our planet turning, we went outside to measure shadows and monitor their direction using compasses.
In Geography, we compared two mountain ranges: the Himalayas and the Cambrian mountains. Year 5 were surprised to discover how much older the Cambrian mountains are and could identify how erosion has changed their shape. We also investigated the Cambrians by looking at their climate and made climate graphs. We also considered how this wet and cold climate impacted local farmers.
Wishing you and your families a lovely weekend.
