Katherine Johnson class weekly update 21/05/2021

A fantastic week to end this half-term!

This week we have been very busy putting our creative hats on by making Mayan masks from milk bottles (they’re very versatile!). We had to cut the milk bottle to the correct shape for our mask, then use our paper mache skills to cover the milk bottle (it was pretty messy!) and lastly we decorated them. They look brilliant – well done year 5s!

In maths, we have now finished mastering all 4 operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Well done!

Our class sentence stacker is complete for our diary in our English unit based around Scott from the Antarctic. We have worked very hard to complete our own diary entry in our independent write. Our writing has come on leaps and bounds this last half-term! I have really enjoyed seeing the children’s confidence in writing and vocabulary improve.

An enjoyable half-term had by all the Katherine Johnson Squad! I wish you all a restful and happy half-term break – the sun is even joining us for the week off! I can’t wait to hear what you have all been up too.
