Year 5 - 2016.2017


We have had a busy Term 3 in Year 5 and we are learning all about volcanoes.  We have explored the different types of volcanoes and how eruptions happen.  Also we have looked at Pompeii and wrote our own newspaper articles about the eruption there in 79AD.  We used PurpleMash to type up and present our newspaper pieces.


In science, we have been exploring materials and their properties; this has included learning about evaporation, burning, solubility and irreversible changes.  We have enjoyed testing out these processes and setting up investigations in class.
