3D printer

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

Today, y5 went to the ICT to see a 3D printer! Mr Niels showed us how to make a design so he could print it over the holidays. We got the start of a design that Mr Niels had made and we had to guess what it was. At the end, he showed us the finished design and it was a unicorn! We had lots of fun and some of the things y5 made were amazing.


A visit to the Gallery

AMRC Visit

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

Year 5 visited the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC)  this morning. They were shown some of the new technology that is being designed, which is why companies like Boeing and Rolls Royce have their own factories near by. This is too state of the art to photograph. They finished off with a visit to Factory 2050 where amongst the robots doing amazing thins they saw how augmented and virtual reality could be used in industry.


Making Stonehenge

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

We got into three groups to make Stonehenge. One group made Stonehenge with Lego, another group made Stonehenge using clay and the third group made Stonehenge using PlasterPlay. We worked together to make it strong and solid. The groups used pictures of the Stonehenge to get ideas about building it but, their own version. Miss Allen (our teacher) was really impressed about our teamwork and how we were getting on. It was educational.


Division Questions

Year 5 (Year 5) on: Year 5's Blog

This morning, Miss Allen wrote division questions on the window. During maths, we answered the questions in groups. We had to work out the answers using our times tables knowledge.Some of them had remainders because they were not an exact multiple.After we’d finished our maths, we checked the answers as a class.
