Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas


YEAR 5 – Scream Machine

The new projects run for the Second half of the summer term. This project is due on Friday 3rd July. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home. 

Below are a list of ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.

  • Plan a trip to a local theme park for your family. Calculate how much it will cost, how long it will take to get there and write an itinerary for the day
  • Research the history of fairground rides and create a PowerPoint presentation that includes information, timelines, pictures, film and sound clips.
  • Make a flipbook to animate a roller coaster ride that includes a loop the loop.
  • Research online to find information about roller coasters from around the world. Which is the oldest? The longest? The scariest? Record your results in a table.
  • Make a loop the loop using flexible track. Modify the track until a marble or toy car can successfully make it round the loop. Challenge other family members to get the marble or car to fly off the end and land in a pot by changing the trajectory. Keep a tally to show your success rate.
  • Become a pendulum on the swings at the park. Swing as high as possible and time how long it takes for you to slow down and stop completely. Time friends and family then identify patterns in your results. Do heavier people slow down more quickly?
  • Research and write a biographical account of Walter Elias ‘Walt’ Disney, animator and entrepreneur.
  • Find the location of Disney theme parks around the world.
  • In science, we are learning about forces. What can you find out about different forces? Can you design an experiment? 
  • In RE we are studying a thematic unit: What does it mean to have a good life? What can you find out about the different values within different faiths?
