Friday 15th June – Happy World Cup 2018!
It has been another busy week in Year 5 with the children continuing their work on their Enterprise projects. Each company is now up and running and the children are working hard towards their target of creating around 40 products to sell to Years 3, 4 and 6.
In Literacy this week, the children have created a set of instructions for their products. They have included lots of interesting time conjunctions and adverbs to make their instructions precise. They have also been creating persuasive posters and adverts to advertise their products. The adverts have been created on iMovie and will be sent to the other classes to encourage them to come and buy from our Enterprise Fair.
In Maths, we have been learning all about profit and loss. The children had to create a finance sheet to discuss with potential investors and talk about projected expenditure and projected profit. They relied on their excellent addition and subtraction skills to calculate different values and presented their findings to the Dragons. They have also continued to work on Prodigy Maths, working on gaps identified over the year.
In Humanities this week, we have used our time to create Dragons Den pitches. The children were excellent and puitched their ideas to investors from the Senior School. The staff have been so impressed with the maturity of the students and their speaking and listening skills. Now that the World Cup has officially started, the children will be using their Humanities skills to find out information about Russia and the participating countries. Tasks will include: creating fact files, plotting locations onto maps, learning about the history of the hosts and participants and learning about the history of the competition. It promises to be an exciting few weeks!
In Science, the children have concluded their work on materials. They came up with a variety of different ways to separate a mixture of materials and showcased their knowledge and understanding by completing their KWL grid.
In Art, the children have created stencils for their enterprise companies. They have then used the stencils to put their design onto different bags and pencil cases. A huge thank you to the Parent Reps for sourcing the bags – they look fantastic and the children are excited about using them.
Finally, a huge thank you for the Long Term Project work. It is clear that so many of you have helped to support a charity and it has been great learning all about the work that the children have been doing. Thank you again for your support with this project!
Enjoy your weekend.
