Year 5




Welcome to Year 5

This half term in science we have been looking at living things and life cycles. We have looked in depth at the life cycle of plants and how they reproduce. To help us we dissected a flower and then used a key to identify the various parts and find out their function.

We also conducted an investigation to find out what the stem of a flower does apart from hold the plant up. To do this we took 6 flowers and put half of them in a container with just water in it and the other half in a container with water and food colouring in it to see what would happen. We predicted that the flower in the dye would change colour because the dye would travel up the stem to the flower.


In Maths we have just started fractions and we tried using the Cuisenaire rods to build our own fraction walls.
