Year 5

Science – Forces

Year 5 have been studying forces in science, looking at the force of gravity acting between the Earth and falling objects. In this lesson they were identifying the effect of air resistance. They designed their own parachutes to see which would be the most air resistant.

In a recent PSHE lesson the children talked about stereotypes, how they can affect our lives and how we can overcome them. The children created their own statements to challenge common stereotypes and took photos of themselves with them.

Year 5 Waterloo Class Assembly

Miss Dobson was hugely impressed by Year 5 Waterloo’s assembly in December. They gave a consummate performance, demonstrating their extensive knowledge of the Tudors.



Trip to the National Portrait Gallery

Year 5 visited the National Portrait Gallery in November to look at Tudor portraits, find out more about them and to have a go at sketching their own. This ties in with their current Enquiry topic which is the Tudors.

Here are some photos.
