Our week in year 5

In year 5 this week, we have been studying the Ancient Maya.  We used the Maya number system to solve some different problems and learnt about how they were one of the first civilizations to use the number zero.  We also looked at their language and used Mayan runes to write our names!

In science this week we explored chemical reactions. We used baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to see how different reactions took place and looked at what was produced during these reactions. When bicarbonate of soda and vinegar reacted, they produced some gas which was able to blow up a rubber glove!
