We have had a very settled week back in class and the children were very excited to see each other, despite a few sleepy starts!
This week we have begun our topic:
‘Mission to Mars’ and we are beginning to share what we already know and ask questions about what we would like to find out.
We began researching objects found in space today and creating a collage, using our understanding of colour and texture.
Welcome back and a very Happy New Year to all of 5CH and their families!
This week, 5GS have been studying the life cycle of a plant. Each group became experts of a particular stage and designed an informative poster before presenting their research to the class
5KP have worked really hard this week on division and interpreting remainders in word problems!
Have a look at their work below!
5CH are setting a super example and remembering to stay focused, despite getting so close to Christmas.
We have been discussing the life of Sir David Attenborough this week and the children are so enthusiastic about his conservation efforts. They are using this understanding, and the skills we have learnt in class, to write a biography about him.
During our Maths lessons we have been using division and multiplication skills to solve tarsia puzzles and tricky word problems.
Finally, in Art, the children will be drawing a picture of Andy Goldsworthy’s ‘environmental art’, so we have been practising our shading and sketching techniques, producing some wonderful results.
Keep up the good work!
We’ve made some beautiful krathongs to celebrate the festival of Loy Krathong today and 5KP look amazing in their traditional dress! Wishing you a happy and safe 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.
