Spring 2 – Week 6

Last week, Cathedral School celebrated Science Week. On Monday we visited the Planetarium and learnt about the stars in our galaxy. In English, we wrote myths about the origin of these impressive constellations.

In Science, we conducted an experiment to see if we could make a paper helicopter go faster by changing the width of the blades, adding weight, or altering the size. It was a lot of fun and we have definitely improved our measuring skills!

We also had visitors who came in to talk to us about Artificial Intelligence and Engineering in Science. We learnt so much and it was a fantastic opportunity to learn about how Science is used in everyday life.

Finally, for homework we produced posters about different types of journeys. They are very impressive and show lots of super Scientific knowledge.

Well done Year 5 – please comment below and let me know what your favourite part of Science week was.

    My favourite part of science week was making paper helicopters and trying to find out how to make it land on the floor faster.

    My favorite part in science week is the planetarium. This is because I learnt a lot in the planetarium like the star constellations and I learnt about some stars (which is way bigger than the sun). It was also a great, enjoyable experience.

    I also enjoyed doing the poster because it was a chance to be creative. I also did a lot of research
