5L had a great day on No Pens Day! We created PowerPoints about our new topic of North and South America. It was very interesting as most of us thought that North America was just the USA but we discovered it consists of 23 countries! We then did some Maths problem solving. We had number cards 0-15 and we had to place seven of them in order of a certain criteria - it was very tricky! In the afternoon, we did some PSHE looking at peer pressure and how to respond to it. We got to act out different scenarios and used freeze frames. Mrs Oseman then came in to teach us French and we used the oracy skills of nesting and trios to rehearse our own 'The Hungry Caterpillar' stories.
5C hosted the Key Stage 2 school class assembly on 29/03/2019.
We treated guests to readings from "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, " "The Hobbit" and we wowed with some "Times Tables Kumite" work!
Well done to all of 5C!
On Friday 15th March, 5L had their class assembly. Last half-term, we studied the Ancient Egyptians so we themed our assembly around this topic. We had a lot of fun practising it and it was a great opportunity for us to develop our oracy skills. Miss Curzon was very impressed with how much we developed our speaking and listening skills! We hope you enjoyed it.
5C made sundials as part of an investigation into the movement of the Earth around the sun and shadows.
We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. Some of the class came dressed as their favourite book character. Can you guess who they are?
On the day, we studied the book 'Perfectly Norman' by Tom Percival. We created our own poems and designed our own wonderful wings. We also participated in the BBC Live Lesson and created our own bookmarks for a competition! Wish us luck!
5L had a great day and it was fun to share some of the stories we love.
5L have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We had a full themed day where some of us dressed up as Ancient Egyptians! On the day, we did lots of fun activities including researching famous pharaohs and making our own cubic rods (the Egyptian form of measure). We even played a mummification game and tried some Ancient Egyptian food!
In 5L, we enjoyed learning both Arabic and Spanish. We learned some basic greetings in Arabic and practised conversations with our partners. We also discovered some English words derived from Arabic. We then learned Spanish greetings, the alphabet and numbers. It was interesting to learn each other's home languages!
5C have been working on their times tables - kumite style!
Students that answer 30 rapid fire questions from classmates earn a times tables black belt!
Due to her outstanding effort and insightful contributions to our learning, Halima was chosen as "Student of the week."
She was rewarded with the opportunity to teach a lesson - she taught a maths multiplication lesson.
Well done, Halima!
