Welcome to Olive and ash class
This is what we are learning, understanding and remembering in Year 5 this year.
We tested a car over a ramp using various different materials (fabric, tin, foil, bubble wrap, paper and wood) to see which material had the most friction. We had to keep the ramp at the same height each time to make it a fair test.
Year 5 learned all about beam bridges and arch bridges and made our own – they discovered that an arch bridge could hold more weight. They then made a spaghetti truss bridge using triangles and that could hold ten times the weight!!
As our school logo is a tree we have all chosen tree names.
In Year 5 we are Olive and Ash classes. Here is a PowerPoint telling you about our trees.
