This Week in Year 5…
This week learning in Year 5 has been in a slightly different format. Year 6 have been using the classrooms for mocks, so Year 5 have had a range of different activities in the hall. Firstly, we have been really impressed with the attitude and behaviour of all the children and they should be extremely proud of themselves. Lots of the activities we have done this week have involved the children collaborating with a range of different children over both classes. We have continued to explore ‘The Wolves in the Wall’ by creating pieces of art work and writing poems which show how Lucy is feeling throughout the story.
In Maths, Ayres Class have continued to look at comparing and ordering decimals. While Hockney Class have been measuring and comparing angles.
In the afternoons, both classes have started to explore Space where they evaluated different theories about whether the Earth is flat or spherical. The children in both classes have also come up with a range of questions that they want to find out about Space.
Hockney Class have also started to make prototypes in DT for a moving toy. The children have worked exceptionally hard in the preparation and designing stage and they thoroughly enjoyed finally being able to make the prototypes. Keep an eye out over the next couple of weeks as the children will be evaluating their prototypes and making changes before they finally make their finished product.
