Welcome to 5RE!

Spring Term 1

Welcome back to a brand new term in 5RE! We are all very excited about beginning our new topic, The London Eye mystery. Later this term we will be lucky enough to take a ride on the London Eye. Check out the website to see the wonderful sites we will be able to see from the top of the London Eye https://www.londoneye.com/schools/teaching-resources/


So far this term we have written fact booklets about London, using i pads and information books we found out many interesting facts about our capital city. Did you know Angel Tube Station, has Western Europe’s longest escalator with 318 steps?


[line] In science this term we are exploring different forces in our world. So far we have carried out experiments on air resistance, friction, water resistance and gravity. We tested these forces on a range of objects and decided on the forces acting upon them. We had great fun and learnt that gravity is a force which acts on every object on earth however, in space there is no gravity and that is why astronauts float around.

If you want to try a forces experiment at home follow the instructions on this video:
