Year 5 Beech and Elm 2020

Welcome to Year 5 Beech and Elm classes!


We are taught by Miss Clare Dangerfield, Miss Sarah Kuczaj, Mrs Cath Priestley, Mrs Tracey Delaney and Miss Dawn Stevenson. 

Our topic for Summer term is 'Scream Machine'



Roll up, roll up. You’re going on a day trip to a theme park, to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair. Learn about the science behind roller coasters and write poems that are shaped as a loop the loop. Design a theme park and show your ideas on a digital map. Time for some mini investigations. Cam mechanisms, pendulums, pulleys and prototypes. Let’s go behind the scenes to see forces at work. Good news. The engineers at ‘Scream Towers’ love your work and want you to build a death defying new drop ride for their theme park. Make a working model and test it out with uncooked eggs. Cracking stuff. Okay, ready to ride? Don’t forget to scream if you want to go faster.

Please note: Maths homework is sent out on a Monday and is due in the following Wednesday. 

Reading homework is sent out on a Friday and is due in the following Monday.
