Welcome to Year 5, class of 2016-17

We have had a fantastic start to the new school year and are enjoying starting our new topics in Year 5. Our behaviour has already been complimented as we show that we are great role-models when moving around the school and in our learning. We have already started reading our class book: 5C have chosen to read ‘Holes’ and 5L are reading ‘There’s a Boy in the Girl’s bathroom.’

We expect every child to read every night, and bring in their reading record signed every day. We have been discussing this week in Upper School assemblies, the importance of reading at home.

Homework, like with the rest of Upper School is given out on a Friday and expected to be handed in completed by Tuesday. We ask that all children look at the homework over the weekend, and if they do not understand any part of the homework, they have the opportunity to ask questions on Monday to help ensure the homework is completed. Homework consists of 10 spellings, which are to be written out 3 times to practice their handwriting, the meanings of these words are asked for; as understanding what the word means allows them to use the vocabulary in their writing and the last part of the homework is a task to support their learning in Maths from the week.

Homework 20.5.16

Learn the spellings below – make sure you write them out three times using the school handwriting scheme. You will also need to write out the meanings of the words.

To enhance your motes you might want to include a map of the UK showing the location of some of these features.

Can you feel the force?

This term year 5 have been looking at forces as our science topic. We have been looking at the different types of forces and carrying out lots of scientific enquiries into them, recording our results and discussing what we found out.

Winter poems

This week we have written some poetry about winter. Here are some examples of the work we have done.

A Wonderful but Woeful Christmas
By Tia and Sabrina

Wonderful winter so lovely and calm,
but when it gets woeful you need lip balm.

When it rains you get the flu,
when it stops you’ll need to go to the loo.

When it’s freezing you’ll need a bath fast,
but make sure you’re not the last!

Hot coco mmmmmm so lovely and nice,
but please make sure you don’t drink it twice

Come and sit down by the fireplace,
but make sure the flames don’t touch your face.

Did you get a present duck?
If not, then bad luck!

If you wish upon a star,
then your wish may not be too far.

Wonderful Winter 
by Khalid and Firdaus

Winters coming, hip hooray!
Winters coming, “let’s go and play”

Children awake, ready to make
snowmen and do skating on the lake.

Snowballs are thrown,
Children moan!
Snowballs are thrown,
Children groan!

Presents are bought
Snowflakes are taught
Snow battles are fought.

Children wait for exciting gifts,
while their parents take time
off their shifts.

Snowflakes glisten,
While everyone listens,
for the sound of Santa Claus!

Santa arrives at every child’s house with a gift
but sometimes he gets stuck in the chimney
and needs a lift.

Presents lay by the tree,
Kids wake up, run and flee.

Christmas is here!
Christmas is here!

Steve Biko

biko

This week for Black history we have been studying Steve Biko as our influential person. We used the internet to research into his life and then wrote a biography about him. We also learnt the song “Biko’ which was written by Peter Gabriel. We had discussions in our class about apartheid and what it meant to the South Africans. We also found that different people told different versions of events leading up to the death of Biko. We were able to discuss why this may have been and what this told us about how news does not always report the truth.

school - 1school - 2school - 3school - 4

Peter Pan

In English we have been looking at the story of Peter Pan and using it to explore adventure stories. So it’s rather good timing that a new movie is going to be released this October telling the story of how Peter Pan came to be. Perhaps you will be able to persuade an adult to take you to see it over half term! If you prefer to see
panheader live theatre, Peter Pan is going to be this years Christmas show at the New Wimbledon Theatre. I’m sure J.M. Barry, the original author of Peter Pan would be very impressed that his story is still so popular, but Great Ormond Street Hospital must be even happier. JM Barrie loved children so much he gave all the rights to Peter Pan to this hospital; every time a book is sold or someone makes a movie or performs a play about Peter Pan, Great Ormond street receives some money. You can read more about it on their website.

Welcome Back!

Dear Year 5 2015-2016,

Well summer is finally over and it’s time to go back to school. It has been hard getting used to waking up early, remembering where your new classroom is and where to sit. On top of all that you are now in year 5!

As with last year you will need to read every day and bring in your reading record signed by an adult.  You will have homework every Friday which you will need to complete by Tuesday.

PE will be every Friday for both classes. 5T will also have PE on a Monday, 5L on a Tuesday. You will need to bring in your PE kit for this; a white T-Shirt (no patterns), blue shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers.

This year is going to be a very busy one for us with lots of new exciting things to learn but we know that you are all up for the challenge. In year 5 the expectations have increased even more but we have lots of exciting activities planned for you and know that with hard work you will all achieve amazing things.

Mrs Thompson and Miss Lee.

This gave us the opportunity to look at primary sources which we were then able to use to tell us about the Greek culture.

Creativity Week

For creativity week year 5 looked to the USA for inspiration. And what a busy week it was: line dancing in the attic; creating Jackson Pollock artworks; visiting the Tate Modern to look at Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism; using Shel Silverstein for inspiration in our poems; circus performances; playing along to Reggae Music. The list seems endless. But all said and done what fun we had learning!

We looked in particular at Shel Silverstein’s poem about the ‘Whatifs” and wrote our own version. The results were really impressive as you can see from the examples below.

Whatif?

Whatif I loose my first boxing fight?
Then my dad would say it will be alright.

Whatif I get bullied at school?
Then I will look like a big fool.

Whatif I see a clown?
Then I will wear a big frown.

Whatif I make a friend today?
Then I will ask them to come and play.

Whatif I get hurt and fall over?
Then I will go home in my mum’s Range Rover.

Whatif I move house?
Hopefully there won’t be a mouse!

Whatif I can’t do my work fast?
Then my break will be a thing of the past.

Whatif I wake up in the middle of the night?
Then I will jump out of bed and turn on the light.

Whatif I can’t go to sleep?
Then I’ll just start counting sheep.

Whatif I find a creature in my hair?
Then I will pick it out as if I don’t care.

Whatif I overfeed my cat?
Then it would get bigger and fat.

Whatif if my house is full of cats?
Then I would have to get them their own flats.

Whatif you see all of my tears?
Then I would know it’s because of my fears.

By Jake

Whatif?

 

Last night the Whatifs came to play,
they began to spring around and get in my way.

Whatif I get stuck in a small room?
Then I will bust my way out with a broom!

Whatif I am late for the first day of school?
Then my face would go red and I’d look life a fool.

Whatif a stranger starts to creep around?
Then I will creep after them, without making a sound.

Whatif I’m attacked by a huge canine dog?
Then I’ll fend it off with a log.

Whatif when I’m out late, the shadows start to shift?
Then I’ll get a cabbie to give me a lift.

Whatif a huge hairy spider crawls up my back?
Then I will give it a whack!

Whatif opera singers sing in my ear?
Then I’ll have a lot of trouble trying to hear.

Whatif I get stuck up on a tower?
Then I’ll be screaming for help hour after hour.

Whatif the worries always stay?
Then I’ll have to beg them to go away!

The Ancient Greeks.

Over the past half term we have been looking at the Ancient Greeks in History. We have studied all aspects of their life. Below are some photos of the things that we have been up to.

The olympics was, and still is the most famous sporting event. We held our own mini olympics and competed in teams doing exciting events such as ‘The Japanese chopstick race, The Irish Potato race and the Venetian Water Race’. There were some close moments but in the end teamwork paid off.

wordpress - 33 wordpress - 32 wordpress - 31 wordpress - 30 wordpress - 29

The Greeks were well known for their plays and drama. As well as writing our own versions of their myths we joined classes together and acted out our own version of Pandora’s box.

wordpress - 34

 

 

 

Even Mrs Thompson, Miss Benharch, Mala and Nydia put on a bit of performance for the class , which year 5 found very amusing.

Of course we wouldn’t know anything about the Greeks if it were not for the efforts of Historians and Archaeologists who have been able to unlock the past from their study of primary and secondary sources of information. We were fortunate enough to be able to examine some ‘real’ ancient Greek artefacts. Using our skills we carefully unearthed some treasures which gave us a glimpse into the life of the Ancient Greeks.

wordpress - 13 wordpress - 14 wordpress - 12 Using a Paintbrush we were very carefully able to remove the sand from the artefacts. In the sand we found all sorts of things and had to determine if they were genuine or not.

 

 

wordpress - 7

wordpress - 5 wordpress - 4 wordpress - 3 wordpress - 2 wordpress - 1

Once we had found something interesting we then used secondary sources to  find out what the items were. This was a small top that children used to play with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some artefacts were broken like these pots and had to be re-assembled.

It was important to document our findings, detailing what the item was, what it was mode from and what it was used for. Also what it told us about the person or people who used it.

Friday 27th February

Wednesday 25th February

How amazing, when we arrived this morning there were 9 chicks that had hatched! Although the incubator was starting to get a little crowded but you need to leave them in there until they have dried out a little before moving them to the brooding box.

_DSC0516

By the end of the day all 14 eggs had hatched and the chicks had dried off and were ready to move to the brood box. All of 5B and 5T gathered around to watch Miss Benharch and Mrs Thompson move them over to their new home.

Tuesday 24th February

Arriving this morning we were all surprised to see that one of the eggs had started to hatc.

20150224_09520320150224_10005020150224_101419

First it made a tiny hole then within an hour more shell was pecked away. Finally a very tired chick managed to break out of its shell. By the end of the end of the day we noticed that 2 more eggs appeared to be hatching, fingers crossed for tomorrow!

Monday 23rd February

Much excitement in year 5 as the chicks have arrived! There are 14 eggs in all and we are hoping that they will all hatch in the next few days. We will be posting a daily picture of our eggs and chicks as they develop.

Below is the incubator box that we are going to put the eggs into when they hatch.

Life cycles:

We have been looking at life cycles of different living organisms including plants, insects, amphibians and mammals. After drawing the reproductive parts of a plant we dissected some actual flowers (carnations and roses) to see if we could identify the parts. We then drew what we could see. We found that although the carnation and roses had male the same parts they were very different in structure.

We also carried out  an experiment to see what substance beans and peas best germinate in. Surprisingly it was diet coke! To ensure that it was a fair test we had to carefully measure out our liquids accurately and made sure that all the other factors influencing germination were kept the same.

  64. This Is My Book Recount Goal
    Alan Durant
    Book 1
    This book is about Dan and Sam playing football they are in their garden playing football GOAL! Sam cried “Beat cha der” Sam said smugly lying on the grass. It was a warm sunny day Sam’s freckly skin turned pink from the heat “Your turn in goal” Dan said he was 10 a year older then Sam he had a dark face big ears that had a habit of tugging like Sam.

    Book 2
    This second book in a whole book of 4 books is about Dan and Sam going into a cellar and finding an old ball but there is an old ghost and they make him the coach. Of the football team the reason he was a ghost because one day he was playing a match in a football pitch and it was raining. Suddenly a lightning struck on him and he passed away. So he turned into a ghost.

    Book 3
    This book is the third book and it’s about Archie (The ghost) bringing the children (Dan and Sam) to school to tell the teacher that they can play a match on Sunday instead of going on a trip. But on the way to the school to the children’s classes he says that in his days (when he was a kid) that he couldn’t even see a black mark on his shoes. But Dan said back to him “I polish my shoes 1ce a week” Archie said “that’s bad laddie when I was in year 5 I used to polish my shoes every day. But Archie could not be heard or saw only to his family (Dan’s and Sam’s) so the teacher says anymore excuses and they will be in detention.
    Book 4 (Last Chapter)
    In this final book that’s the last chapter (Chapter 13) but I think that my favourite book is the 3rd one because it had some comedy in it .Also my favourite character is Dan because he has my name and age. The End

  77. Moon

    The Earth’s Moon has no atmossphere or wind,and dust on its suface never moves.So the footprints left in 1969 by the apollo astronauts are still there today, perfectly preserved.

    The Earth’s Moon is the biggest brighest thing in the night sky.yet it has no light of its own.It is just a big cold ball of rock, and only shines because it reflects the light of the sun.

    All over the Moon are large, dark patches that people once thought were seas. So they are all called mare, from latin for sea. Now we know they are vast, dry plains formed by lava from valcanoes that erupted early in the Moon life.

    Sun

    The Sun is a star, just like all the stars in the night sky. In fact, it is a medium-sized star in the middle of its 10-billion-year life. But it is close to us just 150 million kilomatres away, not billions of kilometres away like over stars.

    Like the Earth, the sun has a core, where most of its heat is generated. The takes 10 million years to to rise to the surface into a raging inferno. It burns so bright that it floodlights the Earth and gives us daylight.

    The Sun is 150 kilometres million kilometres from the Earth. Because it is further away, it looks the same size in the sky as the moon, even though it is 400 times bigger.

    The temperature at the surface of the sun is 6058’C

    Heat from the sun’s interior erupts on the surface in patches called granules, and gushes up in flame-like tongues called solar prominences.

    Because of the elliptical nature of the earth’s orbit and constant changes in the earth’s rate of spin because of the previously mentioned phenomena, the sun, as seen from earth, is moving at a non-uniform rate. This makes it difficult to use the real position of the sun as a reference for time keeping. For these purposes, a point which moves at a constant rate around the earth is used instead of the real position of the sun. This point is called the mean sun and is the basis for mean solar time.

  119. My poem

    cinderella by roald dahl

    I guess you think you know this story.
    you don”t.The real one”s much more gory.
    The phoney one,the one you know,was cooked up years and years ago, and made to sound all soft and sappy just to keep the children happy.Their house was filled with smiles and laughter.And they were happy ever after.
    THE END.

    BE HEALTHY!

  142. keeping healthy
    keeping healthy is in :
    a) healthy balanced diet
    b) regular exercises
    c) good sleep

    healthy balanced diet :
    There are 5 basic food groups and a healthy diet consists of eating a variety of foods from all of the groups but in the correct proportions.
    Bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, noodles and breakfast cereals.
    These foods mostly contain starch and should be the main part of all your meals. If possible try to choose high fibre varieties. This group of foods are an excellent source of fibre and are rich in vitamins from the B complex.
    2. Fruit and vegetables.
    This includes all frozen, fresh and canned fruit/vegetables as well as salad vegetables. These are all excellent sources of vitamins, minerals and fibre and are naturally low in fat and calories. You should try to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables every day.
    The following is a guide as to how much equals 1 portion:
    • 2 serving spoons of small vegetables, e.g. sweetcorn, peas or mixed frozen vegetables.
    • 1 whole fruit, e.g. like an apple or banana.
    • 1 medium slice of large fruits e.g. melon or pineapple.
    • 2 medium fruits e.g. satsuma’s, plums or kiwi fruit.
    • 1 small bowl of small fruits e.g. strawberries or grapes.
    • 1 medium bowl of salad
    • 2 tomatoes
    • Half a cucumber
    • 2 serving spoons of green and root vegetables e.g. cabbage, broccoli, carrots or parsnip.
    • 1 glass of fruit juice.
    3. Milk and dairy foods.
    Milk and dairy products include cheese, yoghurt, milk and fromage-frais. They are rich in protein, calcium, vitamins and minerals. Eat or drink a moderate amount of these foods – about 2 to 3 servings per day. These foods contain a good source of calcium, which is essential to our diet, but as these foods can also be high in saturated fats try to choose reduced fat versions when possible.
    4. Meat, fish, poultry and pulses.
    Eating fish 1-2 times a week is good for you, especially if you eat oily fish (sardines, mackerel and salmon). All types of meats are included in this category and red meat is an excellent source of iron and vitamin B12, but try to choose the leaner cuts and trim off all visible fat before cooking. Lentils, nuts, peas and beans are also in this food group. Try to use lower fat versions of all these foods whenever possible. You should eat approximately 2 servings from this category each day.
    5. Foods containing fats and sugars.
    This last group contains butter, margarine, cream, ice-cream, low fat spreads, cooking oils, mayonnaise, salad dressings, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, sugary drinks, sweets, pastry foods and crisps. All of these foods tend to be high in fat and calories. Try not to eat these foods too often and when you do only have them in small amounts. If possible try to go for the healthier varieties for example sugar free sweets and low fat crisps.

    The best way to get all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients we need is to eat a variation of foods, no one food can provide us with all we need to keep our bodies healthy.
    Just adding a little movement to your life can:
    Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes
    Improve joint stability
    Increase and improve range of movement
    Help maintain flexibility as you age
    Maintain bone mass
    Prevent osteoporosis and fractures
    Improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression
    Enhance self esteem
    Improve memory in elderly people

    Avoid Caffeine, Alcohol, Nicotine, and Other Chemicals that Interfere with Sleep
    Turn Your Bedroom into a Sleep-Inducing Environment
    Establish a Soothing Pre-Sleep Routine
    Go to Sleep When You’re Truly Tired
    Don’t Be a Nighttime Clock-Watcher
    Keep Your Internal Clock Set with a Consistent Sleep Schedule
    Nap Early—Or Not at All
    Lighten Up on Evening Meals
    Balance Fluid Intake
    Exercise Early

  143. Eating healthy.

    Fresh fruits and vegetablescontain lots of vitamins and minerals.Theyhelp you fight disease,keeping you fit and healthy.

  146. ART
    When I grow up I want to be an artist so I will share facts about the art history. Art, in the first period of history, began with the invention of writing, founded by the great civilizations of Near East: Egypt and Mesopotamia. This period also differed from others because artistic manifestations occurred in every culture of all the continents. In this period appear the first great cities in the main big rivers: Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, Indus and Yellow River.The History of art refers to visual art which may be defined as any activity or product made by humans in a visual form for aesthetical or communicative purposes, expressing ideas, emotions or, in general, a worldview.art is a feeling that wants to get out and show the world who you really are in the inside if you leave it in to long you will never really be known.Arts in the 20th century reached to nine: architecture, dance, sculpture, music, painting, poetry (described broadly as a form of literature with aesthetic purpose or function, which also includes the distinct genres of theatre and narrative), film, photography and comics.Art now can somtimes be seen as a big blob of paint but to others it their feelings if you cant it means others can.

  148. The Water Cycle

    Run and get a glass of water and put it on the table next to you. Take a good long look at the water. Now — can you guess how old it is?

    The water in your glass may have fallen from the sky as rain just last week, but the water itself has been around pretty much as long as the earth has!
    When the first fish crawled out of the ocean onto the land, your glass of water was part of that ocean. When the Brontosaurus walked through lakes feeding on plants, your glass of water was part of those lakes. When kings and princesses, knights and squires took a drink from their wells, your glass of water was part of those wells.

    here is a the website I went on

  152. Here’s some facts I found about the river Nile:

    facts about ancient egypt for kids Facts about Egypt today … information on ancient egypt for children

    The River Nile

    The River Nile is about 6,670 km (4,160 miles) in length and is the longest river in Africa and in the world. Although it is generally associated with Egypt, only 22% of the Nile’s course runs through Egypt.

    In Egypt, the River Nile creates a fertile green valley across the desert. It was by the banks of the river that one of the oldest civilizations in the world began. The ancient Egyptians lived and farmed along the Nile, using the soil to produce food for themselves and their animals.

    • The Nile River is the longest river in the world.

      The Nile flows into the Mediterranean Sea.

      The largest source of the Nile is Lake Victoria.

      The Nile has a length of about 6,695 kilometers (4,160 miles).

      Its average discharge is 3.1 million litres (680,000 gallons) per second.

      The Nile basin is huge and includes parts of Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Congo (Kinshasa), Kenya.

      The name Nile comes from the Greek “neilos”, which means valley.

      The Ancient Egyptians called the river Ar or Aur (black) because of the colour of the sediment left after the river’s annual flood.

      The River Nile flooded every year between June and September, in a season the Egyptians called akhet – the inundation.

      • Rivers and water are fascinating. We depend on each every day, but most of us don’t know very much about water.

        * The United States has 3,500,000 miles of rivers and streams.

        * The Missouri River is the longest river in the United States (about 2,540 miles long).

        * The Nile is the longest river in the world (4,132 miles).

        * The Amazon River carries the most water.

        * Water covers nearly three-fourths of the earth’s surface. However . . .
        o Less than 1% of water on the earth is available for use by us.
        o Most of the earth’s surface water is salty (93%).
        o Much of what remains is in aquifers deep below the earth’s surface (2.5%).
        o Some is permanently frozen in the polar ice caps (2%). Over 90% of the world’s supply of fresh water is located in Antarctica!
        o If all the world’s water were fit into a gallon jug, the fresh water available for us to use would equal only about one tablespoon.
        * If all the water in the Great Lakes was spread evenly across the continental U.S., the ground would be covered with almost 10 feet of water.

        * Besides drinking, we depend on water for all our food.
        o Eighty percent of the fresh water we use in the U.S. is for irrigating crops and generating thermoelectric-power.
        o It takes about 6 gallons of water to grow a single serving of lettuce. More than 2,600 gallons is required to produce a single serving of steak.
        o It takes almost 49 gallons of water to produce just one eight-ounce glass of milk. That includes water consumed by the cow and to grow the food she eats, plus water used to process the milk.
        o About 6,800 gallons of water is required to grow a day’s food for a family of four.
        * 1.2 Billion — Number of people worldwide who do not have access to clean water.
        6.8 Billion — Gallons of water Americans flush down their toilets every day.

        # If all the world’s water were fit into a gallon jug, the fresh water available for us to use would equal only about one tablespoon.

  154. Equinox
    The Autumn Equinox is the first day of the autumn season and occurs when the sun passes the equator moving from the northern to the southern hemisphere so the North pole moves away from the sun. The spring equinox is the same but the north pole moves towards to the sun.

      • The summer solstice is the shortest day of summer.
        The winter solstice is the longest day of winter.
        The autumnal and vernal equinoxes occur when In March; for 2009 it’s the 20th at exactly 11:44 AM.The word vernal is derived from the Greek word for spring, but because it only occurs in spring if you live in the northern hemisphere, it is now properly revered to as simply the March Equinox.

      • Taryn, I still havn’t done my letter from miss Trunchball to the inspecters in independent writing because I was doing house points,so do I have to do it on Monday?(^^^) 🙂 🙂 🙂

  155. Equinoxes occur when the axis of rotation of the earth (i.e. the line form the N to S poles) is exactly parallel to the direction of motion of the earth around the sun.

    Solstices occur when the sun is at its greatest distance from the equator.

      • A solstice is an astronomical event that happens twice each year when the Sun’s apparent position in the sky reaches its northernmost or southernmost extremes.

      • Taryn,we got our experiment from the science fairy today and the challenge was to make a chair for a person to sit on using newspaper and masking tape.The science fairy gave us a clue on how to make it by watching a video but we didn’t get to finish it.

      • I’ve got to have my lunch now so bye 5J and Taryn.

        P.S. I will be on later if i’m allowed.

        Bye!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤

    • An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth’s equator.

      • Got to go,bye 5J and especially taryn.

        By the way I hope that your eye gets better by tommorow so that you dont need to wear your sunglasses.

      • Taryn, today the tests were really easy.

        I’m glad you found the tests easy, that’s good to hear. I’m sure you will all have a great time tomorrow!

  156. FACTORS
    Any one of two are more numbers multiplied together to form a product. For example, since 8 is the product of 4X2, 4 and 2 are factors of 8.

    MULTIPLE
    The multiples is a number that can multiples by a number.For example the multiples of 4 are 4, 8, 12, 16, 20.

  157. Wow! 5J, it looks like you’re doing lots of exciting work, you’re very lucky! We, in 6D, are still waiting for our package from the Science fairy!!

    What is the meaning of axis in regards to a quadratic function How can the axis of a parabola help you to graph a quadratic function

    A force is a push or pull upon an object resulting from the object’s interaction with another object. Whenever there is an interaction between two objects, there is a force upon each of the objects. When the interaction ceases, the two objects no longer experience the force. Forces only exist as a result of an interaction.

    A news tells a story of a couple who wear jumpers knitted from their dogs’ hair, and one of them said:”They are extremely warm and pretty much waterproof. Unless it is banging it down, it is fine.”

    Gravity is the pulling force of the earth .

  167. An icicle is a spike of ice formed when water dripping or falling from an object freezes. Typically, icicles will form when ice or snow is melted by either sunlight or some other heat source (such as heat leaking from the interior of a heated building), and the resulting melted water runs off into an area where the ambient temperature is below the freezing point of water (0 °C/32 °F), causing the water to refreeze. Over time continued water runoff will cause the icicle to grow.
    Icicles can pose both safety and structural dangers.[1] Icicles that hang from an object may fall and cause injury and/or damage to whomever or whatever is below them. In addition, ice deposits can be heavy. If enough icicles form on an object, the weight of the ice can severely damage the structural integrity of the object and may cause the object to break.

  168. My homework i researched on Golden Retriever

    They are easily trained, and always patient and gentle with children. Loyal, confident, sweet and eager to please. It is active, loving and an outstanding family dog. Golden Retrievers enjoy pleasing their masters, so obedience training can be fun. They excel in obedience competitions. Friendly with everyone, including other dogs, the Golden Retriever has very little, if any, guarding instincts. While unlikely to attack, Goldens make good watchdogs, loudly signaling a stranger’s approach.

  169. 5JY, your homework is now due on WEDNESDAYS.

    Thank you to those of you who completed the maths on here over the half term. Please complete the research as well.
