St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Year 5

Botanical Illustrations Gallery

admin on: Year 5

We have been researching about Living things (including plants) in Science, but did you know that this could link with Art?

Scientists have records that go back over many hundreds of years that identify each stage of reproduction within plants. 

In class, we dissected a white lily flower and looked at all of the male and female gametes. From this, we became scientific artists and and drew our very own botanical illustrations of a white lily flower.

GIG Day 2019!!!

admin on: Year 5

Together with Y5's from other schools, we participated in a GIG (Growing In God) Day. The theme was all about service. There were many professionals to talk about their service to the community. In smaller groups we visited different stations from NHS practitioners teaching us CPR, firefighters, police, road safety officers to a very exciting Message Bus. This bus included amazing technology, consoles, climbing wall, slide and even watched a video about Jesus' ministry on earth. We were made to feel very welcome from all the pupils and staff from St. Bernard's showing their outstanding service to primary schools. We finished off with a very uplifting Liturgy.

Rotherham schools tag rugby

admin on: Year 5

A group of our Year 5 class were drawn to represent St Mary’s at the Rotherham school tag rugby tournament. Whilst we all had a great time and played some good rugby, it was quite a difficult day out as we were the only Year 5 team in a group full of Year 6 teams. Nonetheless, we scored lots of tries, we collected lots of tags,  we got very wet and had lots of fun!

Slimy Science

admin on: Year 5

As we have been learning about materials and their properties, one of the things we have looked into is how materials change state. 

With this in mind, we used the creation of slime as an example. We investigated how some solids and liquids can have chemical reactions and how these may or may not be reversible. 

In groups, we did our best to both keep the classroom tidy and make some slime!

Science Week Visitors

admin on: Year 5

Mr Pink currently for MEDTECH and has worked as a medical device consultant for 22 years, flying all around the world working in many different countries 

He brought in a titanium hip, stethoscope and blood testing kit, as well as many 3D printed body parts such as spine, skull, liver, stomach and gall bladder.

Professor Swinscoe is a former professor of Radiotherapy and Oncology at the University of Sheffield. As a former consultant, turned professor, he brought a vast field of knowledge to our classroom and ensured that we all left with our questions answered!

Both of the speakers that we have had in over science week have been wonderful to listen too and have inspired a little more of a love for science in us all!
