This term, the children have been identifying the value of each digit within numbers up to one million as well as ordering and comparing these numbers. They have also been rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000 and 100000 and have also looked at Roman numerals. Class 5 have been using the column method to add and subtract as well as calculating missing numbers.
The children have been writing around our topic of space. They have used ambitious language, fronted adverbials and different sentence openers to write description of their own planet. They have also used speech, synonyms for said and different sentence types to create their own narrative. Their writing has been amazing!
Class 5 have been learning about the effects of gravity and air resistance. They planned, predicted and conducted their own experiments which included creating a parachute for an egg!
This term, the children have been testing their strength in a variety of ways. They have recorded their times running 400m, recorded how many sit-ups they can do in 1 minute and timed how long they could hold a plank for. The children have also designed and presented their own workout routines to the rest of the class.
Class 5 have produced some amazing and detailed art work this term. They used paper Mache to create their own planet which they then painted. They also looked at ‘Starry Night’ by Vincent Van Gogh in which he used swirls and short strokes to create this work. The children then replicated this technique to produce real high quality work!
