5JK are now angle measuring experts!
We had a competition in pairs to see who could be the most accurate with a protractor. The winners were Nopp and Kari!
Everyone can now measure angles within one or two degrees of accuracy.
Play this game online to practise your angle accuracy!
Welcome back Year 5!
This term, we are studying persuasive writing and have started by looking at advertising and logos. During our Art lessons, we discussed why logos were so important and copied some famous ideas using different media.
We were also very inspired by the Shark Guardians visit and created some of our own persuasive posters to educate people about how important sharks are to our oceans.
We have had another busy term in 5GS. The children have demonstrated a great deal of resilience, which has been our character strength for this half term. In maths, we’ve been using our knowledge of fractions to link to decimals and percentages. Their skills gradually improved throughout the term and no doubt will support their learning across many aspects of the curriculum.
In literacy, we have been using figurative language to create excellent suspense stories. Please let your child scan the QR code to show you their published story on Google Drive!
In science, we have been looking at how the circulatory system works. We have learnt how the blood is transported around the body using scientific vocabulary such as oxygenated, deoxygenated, arteries and veins. We even demonstrated our own beating heart!
This half term, the children were also able to put their detective skills to the test at a Ticket to Mystery. The escape rooms were very challenging but all of the children managed to escape in the nick of time!
Finally, to finish off a jam packed term, it was wonderful to see so many children and parents from 5GS taking part in the fun run yesterday!
We are thankful for a good and fruitful term and look forward to more fun and learning in term 3a.
As ever, thank you for your continued support.
What a lovely first experience of Songkran the children provided today. They were so respectful and explained the important meanings behind the celebration.
Have a happy and safe holiday and enjoy Songkran!
Today 5CH returned to find a crime scene in their classroom. What could have happened?
This week, we have been using figurative language to create suspense, making links between fractions, decimals and percentages and discovering how the circulatory system works.
We also visited ‘Ticket to Mystery’ escape rooms, where the children put their detective skills to the test and escaped all 4 rooms!
As well as being ‘Daring Detectives’, 5CH have been exploring mixing colors and using varied brush stroke techniques, creating some beautiful patterns and shades.
We even discussed the fractions and decimals related to the colours in our colour wheel!
