The St Augustine's Year 5 Lobsters Experience

Welcome to Year 5 Lobsters class! You are going to love the learning we have in store for you. Take a look at what's coming up for our Lobsters this year...


Year 5 compared different periods of history in their Ancient Greeks work. It was fascinating to compare time periods and how long they lasted. 


Y5 have had great fun exploring materials in Science. Doing a challenge..."What's the fastest way to melt an ice cube?" within their work on solids, liquids and gases. 

Ideas ranged from put it in your sock, eat it, pour salt on it,  melt it with a hairdryer or take it to space. 

Obviously, some ideas were easier to test than others...

Evaporation investigation and fun with non-Newtonian fluids in Y5

Science Day

 Year 5 had a great day investigating how many worms they could find within a meter square of ground. They all enjoyed getting a bit muddy and digging for worms! They were able to identify and classify the different types of worms. We learnt that there are 20 different types of worms in the UK. We talked about why some groups of children found more worms than others and how we could charm worms to the surface. We collated all our findings to feed back to other schools as part of the KSCP video link at the end of the day.


Year 5 had a great time planning, designing and making their Spaghetti Truss Bridges. They then put weights on to assess the strength of the structure.
