Loy Krathong

This week has been a very busy one.  We have returned from our trip to Khao Yai full of energy and ready to continue with our topic work.

Year 5 have been studying David Attenborough, putting their note taking skills into practise and identifying key events in his life.

During maths, we have been looking at multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000.  The children have become ‘teachers’ and created a ‘how to’ guide for this process.

In art, we have continued learning about Andy Goldsworthy.  We decided to create our own pieces of art using equipment found around school and the results were impressive!

Finally, we celebrated Loy Krathong, which was a brilliant experience as a new teacher.  The children explained the significance of the festival and looked wonderful in their outfits.

Monday Khao Yai

We are here safe and sound.

Sorry for no earlier post. We have been super busy and the wifi isn’t that great when uploading photos.

We’ve had a great time team building, navigating low ropes and eating lots of barbecue!

We had singing, magic tricks, dancing and even a haka at Khao Yai’s Got Talent.

Everyone is now tucked up in bed ready for another fun-filled day tomorrow.

Amazing Anecdotes in 5MC!

5MC have been learning about anecdotes and how they are used in biographies. The children loved sharing their funny (and sometimes mischievous) memories with the class.

Brilliant Botonists

5CH have spent another week working hard and preparing for their trip to Khao Yai!
We have been learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers and the children are applying their new skills brilliantly.

We have also been continuing our roles as botanists by exploring flowers and plants, labeling them and discussing the role of each part.

During our art lessons, we have been creating an artist profile about Andy Goldsworthy. He is an environmental artist and we we will be using his ideas to inspire some of our own work in Khao Yai.

Finally, we a have been looking at anecdotes as part of our biography topic. Ms. Jireh , Ms. Woods and I have learnt some very funny facts and stories about the class!

Please have a restful weekend in preparation for next week. The kit list has been stuck into communication books to help with packing and if you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

5GS’ Artist Studies!

This week, 5GS have been learning all about the environmental artist, Andy Goldsworthy. They have carried out lots of research and noticed that he uses natural materials to create his pieces. After reading about the many countries that Andy Goldsworthy has visited to create his artwork, the children located them using Google My Maps and discussed why his artwork may differ from place to place. Finally, they presented their information by creating these wonderful artist study pages. Read through them to find out more about Andy Goldsworthy!
