We have enjoyed our final week of this half term. In PE, we have put together gymnastics sequences that we have developed across the weeks and have got better at defending each other in netball. In English, we have been writing formally and have had many lessons on grammar this week. Year 5 have been working with fractions and decimals and we will continue to do so after half term. Yr 6 have been learning about different measurements (length, mass & capacity) Any practical experiences in the kitchen or outside would be a fantastic opportunity to consolidate our learning.
All of us have created postcards written in French which showcase our knowledge learnt this topic. Hope everyone had a lovely half term and a well deserved rest!
In year 5 this week, we have been learning about percentages and thousandths in decimals. In year 6 we have been proving that the area of a triangle is half the area of the rectangle in which it fits, calculating the areas of parallelograms, and we have been exploring volume. It has been a very hands on practical week with lots of cutting, sticking and making but it has been exactly what maths should be- FUN! In topic we have been experimenting with warm and cold colours and created some cactus montages in the style of Andy Warhol. We also worked together as a class to write and perform a BBC documentary on ‘How people have adapted to live in a desert’ It took a lot of organising from the editing team but it was a great way to find out more about the Sahara, Mojave, Atacoma and Antarctic deserts to name just a few. Well done Year 6 – a great week!
This week we have been investigating several questions. In topic work, in year 6, we have been thinking about ‘Why doesn’t the Toco Toucan live in deciduous forests of the UK ?’ and in maths we exploring ‘Do shapes with the same area always have the same perimeter?’ As well as investigating these questions, we have produced some amazing toucan pictures, which when displayed will reveal all. Please ask us all about it! All in all, a great week’s learning- well done Year 6!
In Year 5, we have been answering – why do you find certain plants in deserts not forests? We have done a soil experiment and investigated the ability for different soil to hold water. In maths, we have revised fractions and decimals from year 4 to boost our confidence before learning new skills.
We have carried on reading our book: The Last Wild – the main character has just made a great escape! We have learnt how including dialogue in our writing can help to show character and action and we have enjoyed experimenting with phrasing and working with partners.
In maths in Power class, we have perfected division and have moved on to learning a new method for multiplication.
In Carbon class, we have been learning about percentages and fractions and decimal equivalents. The children have built on their knowledge learnt in French and can now say which country they’ve travelled to, who they went with and how they got there! We have been practising balances in groups in gym and have been naming all our muscles.
On Wednesday the 13th November, Years 5 and 6 children were transformed into city evacuees! We arrived at Gressenhall and were told we’d have to stay there and help out, as there was a bomb on the railway line preventing us from reaching our destination in the country.
The children met some characters from the war and took part in activities. We met a man from the Home Guard and learnt how to defend against an ‘axis invasion’. We also met two ladies that showed us how to make chocolate truffles during rationing time (mash potato was the secret ingredient). Then we were treated to a visit to the horses and piglets on the farm and we experienced life in an Anderson shelter. It was a great day and all the children were enthusiastic and got really involved.
