This week the year 5s have enjoyed reading sections of The Jungle Book. We have looked at how the story begins, looking at its setting and the characters, including talking animals. This then led on to looking at how Kipling uses speech to clarify understanding in his stories. We recapped how to present speech in text. In Science, we began to think more scientifically about inventing experiments. We looked at variables, independent, dependent and controlled and what these are. We then went on to thinking about the terms soluble and insoluble and tried to invent an experiment that shows whether a list of food items are soluble or insoluble. We will continue with this experiment next week.
