End of Term 2

Jun 20, 2019 | Mātātā - Year 5 blog

Wow, what a fun-packed few weeks we have had.

Thank you to those who were able to watch our fantastic Music Festival. The class had a wonderful time, and did incredibly well indeed.


This week we have been looking at road maps. We have been estimating and measuring length, using metre sticks and rulers. We have also been converting measurements. The class have really enjoyed working in pairs to complete their tasks.


Our Science topic is Evaporation and Condensation. The children have been investigating this, using ice and warm water. They made careful observations in their investigations.

Vector Visit

This week, we enjoyed learning all about how to stay safe around electricity.
Watt (the friendly robot on the screen below) demonstrated what not to do, and we discussed how we can stay safe. The children asked some interesting questions, and listened very carefully to important information regarding electricity. Each child was given a stay safe booklet, which includes a home safety inspection. Our visitor from vector was impressed with our fabulous knowledge and interest.
