Quest Adventure

Year 5 spent the day at Quest Academy! They spent the day investigating whether exercise had an impact on focus and intelligence! In order to investigate the children had to come up with a prediction and give reasons as to why they thought this! While at rest, they took a test! This involved a few times table calculations and a spot the difference quiz! This was all while taking and recording the highest heart rate they had during the test! We then went outside and participated in a few exercises and then completed another test!

Handwriting:  

To help you learn your spellings and improve your handwriting, you are to either write a sentence using each of the words above, using your best handwriting or try to use the words within a descriptive paragraph.  This is also a great way to show that you understand the meaning of the words.

Topic

  1. Research the shaduf using online research sites, such as: mrdonn.org, primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk, or bbc.co.uk/education. If you don’t have access to a computer, make sure you take a useful book from the school or visit your local library!
  2. Make notes and draw annotated pictures about the shaduf in your homework books. You will be learning more about this amazing ancient Egyptian tool during your lessons.

To aid us with this fascinating project about the shaduf, please bring in materials (e.g. cardboard, cereal boxes, plastic caps, string, or small sticks) that will help you to build a shaduf).
