We have had an action packed week in Year 5! We’ve been everything from bakers to painters and investigators! As part of our Maths topic this week, we have been focusing on Measurement. We practiced weighing ingredients and scaling recipes down to make our own fairy cakes which were delicious! Some of us could give Mary Berry a run for her money!
On Wednesday, we were given an investigation focusing on different measurements of capacity. We had a 10 litre tank and lots of bottles with different capacities. We had to find as many different ways of filling the tank using the bottles we had been given. We found that there was a lot of different combinations and began to convert different measurements.
In the afternoon, we became abstract painters after looking at the work of Jackson Pollock. We used paintbrushes, straws, glue sticks and whisks to create our own abstract splatter paintings. Although we got a bit messy, we had lots of fun! Our artwork looks fantastic!
Well done for a super week Year 5!
