Overview for Week 1 and 2
Year 5 are launching in to the year with an exciting and engaging topic about flying! We are going to learn, question and investigate how flying works and through practical investigation and class discussion we will understand the forces that are relevant to flight. Children will explore the history of aviation and the important discoveries together with hands-on self-initiated scientific testing. We will begin with making different paper aeroplanes and testing them, following this, children will be challenged to design their own flying machines!
The children will journey through the design process from idea to finished flying machine, with a whole year group showcase at the end of the topic to test the most successful flying machines from each class.
