Hello Year 5! 

Today is a special day; it's world book day! 


After Science, I have a selection of book themed activities for you to enjoy.

9.00 am Science ZOOM session with Mrs Martin


Meeting ID: 941 0831 3363


We are beginning this term by revisiting our learning on properties of materials.


Today we are exploring thermal insulators.


L.O. To know thermal insulators do not allow heat to pass through them easily.

L.O. To know materials which trap air inside them are good thermal insulators.


We will discuss the attached PowerPoint during our zoom session. 

Thermal insulator: thermal insulator does not allow heat to pass through it easily. Thermal insulators help to keep hot things hot and cold things cold.

Thermal conductor: thermal conductor allows heat to pass through it easily. Most metals are good thermal conductors.




Activity can be found on slides 4,5,6: Complete a bar chart or a line graph.

Examples of this are on slides 9/10. 


We miss you Fat Baby
