Curriculum Overview

What have we been doing in Year 5?

Science Week

In Year 5 we’ve seen looking at flight and have made helicopters. First we investigated how paper falls to the ground and then made paper helicopters. After this, we investigated modifying our helicopters to see if we could make them stay in the air longer. Finally, we had a competition to see who made the best one!
