Merry Christmas Year 5

This week we have worked really hard and also had lots of fun!


In DT we finished creating our automata models. We had to measure each piece of cardboard carefully to make sure that our framework would be stable. Then we had to measure the centre points so that our wooden dowel would be straight. We cut out our cams carefully and assembled our models. We had so much fun testing them out and sharing them with our friends. Here are some photos but don’t forget to check out the video on the school Facebook page!

We also had a great time dancing and playing games at our Christmas party!

Year 5

I am so proud of all of the children in Year 5 for their hard work and determination this term. They have all achieved so much and deserve a restful and relaxing Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone!
