I can't wait to read your stories :)
Forces are often referred to as pushes and pulls.
Forces affect the movement or shape of an object. They can make an object start to move, stop moving, move faster or move more slowly. They could also make an object change its shape or cause a moving object to change direction.
This week we are going to continue looking at forces.
Water resistance is a type of force that uses friction to slow things down that are moving through water. It is often called drag.
Try the experiment attached below:
Mrs Javed has been very busy and has created a home learning challenge for every year group for Design Technology. The challenge for Year 5 is to Design and Build a bridge that opens and closes.
The bridge will need to be big enough and strong enough for you to test it using a toy car or a small, heavy object.
For more details of how to complete the Year 5 project download the task sheet below.
This week we would like to focus on the following reading areas:
2A (give / explain the meaning of words in context)
2B (retrieve and record information / identify key details from fiction and non-fiction)
2D (make inferences from the text / explain and justify inferences with evidence from the text)
2E (predict what might happen from details stated and implied)
Our text focus for this week is Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.
Task 3: Continue to read the prologue from Cogheart. Using the meaning break down check list look at the words included and find these in the text. Read the sentence before and the sentence after to read the word in the context then think about what you know about this word. Record what you think the meaning of each word is then find the definitions for each word in a dictionary – How close were you to the meaning?
