This week in english we have been publishing our brochures for Pandora can we persuade you to visit? Maths saw us problem solving, to date we have cracked codes, played the Chinese game Nim and sorted numbers based on their properties.
This week we welcomed parents to our class assembly where the children had the opportunity to share all their hard work. We were very proud of them and impressed with their performance.
It has also been science week at school, in year five we have created density towers, made glowing lava lamps, tested the powers of friction, created colours and made slime!
This week, Year 5 have worked extremely hard with their Summer assessments. We are very proud of all of the effort and dedication they showed.
A group of Year 5 children have spent their mornings learning how to be safe when cycling, taking part in bike ability. They showed great responsibility and independence when taking to the roads. The remaining group are really keen to hop on their bikes next week.
During the afternoons, we took part in the Joe Wickes challenge. We got very hot and sweaty, but it was lots of fun. On Thursday afternoon, we joined together to play our Alchemy Island games. We have spent a lot of time and effort designing and creating our very own board games so we were eager to play them with our friends.
In small groups we had to research into the pros and cons of importing bananas from Costa Rica. The factors we had to consider were: air pollution caused, how much money is costs and the hygienic nature of how the bananas are transported. We then had to debate and present our cases as to whether we should import them from Costa Rica.
Within our Computing lessons we have started created a quiz using Scratch. This is based on our topic, Allotments, and involves quizzing people on their knowledge of plants. We have been learning about the use of the Ask code block and using the answer variable to check if what the user has entered is the same as the actual answer. Then we have used the IF ELSE block to determine which outcome to display.
Harry Potter Day
