5MC’s Pots arrived back from the kiln this week ready to paint! The children looked at their designs and used traditional colored paints to recreate their designs. They really do look great!
Year 5 have been movin’ and groovin’ this week with Ex-Cathedra! They have loved doing the dances and they sound great!
This morning, 5GS were very excited to learn how to create collaborative maps in order to share information. Mr. Knight showed the children how to pin-point places and challenged them to locate their favourite restaurants in Bangkok, add information about the food and service as well as change their icons to reflect the cuisine. The children enjoyed sharing their information in such an interactive way and they look forward to creating their own maps in next week’s session.
5CH have made a smart and enthusiastic return to school, with lots of excitement building towards our residential trip to Khao Yai. All information for this can be found on the parent portal.
We have finished our work on addition and subtraction word problems and will begin to look at multiplication and division next week.
We have also begun to study our new literacy topic, biographies. We focused upon the features found in examples written about Usain Bolt, J.K Rowling, Roald Dahl and Isaac Newton.
Lastly, we finished painting our Greek pottery,which involve some very unique designs! They will be making their way home next week.
Following on from last half-term’s work on air-resistance, the children were challenged to build their own parachutes taking size, shape and type of material into careful consideration. The teams chose one runner each and measured the difference in time taken to run a certain distance with and without their parachutes. The teamwork carried out during this activity was exceptional, every child fully participated and all suggestion and ideas were acknowledged. Well done 5GS!
The children have enjoyed learning about biographies this week. Using biographies about Ronald Dahl, Usain Bolt and J.K Rowling, the children worked collaboratively to identify the features of a biography and text mark the models.
Happy belated Greek Day! The end of Term 1a has been a whirlwind and 5KP have really enjoyed their Greek day! Take a look at some of the amazing activities below. After half term, we will be focusing on Bangkok and Khao Yai as our topic work, biographies for literacy and multiplication and division for maths – check your child’s class googledrive for more info! Wishing everyone a happy and safe half term!
5MC have had an action packed week this week. One of the highlights of this had to be Greek Day. The children loved getting involved in the activities and it was great to see them try some new foods in our taste of Greece session.
All the children looked fantastic in their outfits so thanks again for making Greek Day so amazing!
