Science

Today in science, we investigated the effects of air resistance. We had to create a parachute that had the most air resistance. After designing and creating our parachutes, we dropped them from a height. We found out that parachutes which had a larger surface area created the most air resistance!

Chocolatyl

In Year 5 we explore The Maya and their legacy...this includes CHOCOLATE!

We began by trying out the traditional Mayan recipe for chocolatyl; a drink made from cacao. It was very bitter and had a bit of a spicy kick!
We simmered cocoa, and added cinnamon and chili; before using different pouring techniques to create a frothiness that was typical of the Mayan Chocolatyl.

We smelled the spices


We poured the chocolatyl from height to build the froth





We then taste tested and adapted the recipe to suit our modern tastebuds!

Science

We've been exploring forces like water resistance...


We created our own mini documentaries about water resistance to share our knowledge with others!

We've been thinking about how modern music production has evolved and how producers now don't even need physical instruments or a studio, they can just use a laptop/tablet!


You can have a go at home!

Show not Tell!

In our writing we've been working hard to spice up some sentences by making them 'show not tell'.

Here's one of our examples:
He was sad. 
His heart sank and his eyes became brimming pools of glistening sapphire, threatening to overflow.

Can you try your own for this boring sentence?
She was angry.
