Year 5 - Spain
Welcome to Spain class. We are in Year 5 and our teacher is Miss Walker. Miss Adcock and Miss Maxam are our Teaching Assistants.
This week we have been visited by engineers from a company based at Hethel called Connected Energy.We were shown how they use old car batteries to create larger batteries that are able to store electrical energy generated by clean sources like solar and wind power.
This provided inspiration for the children when thinking about STEM subjects:Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, using these skills to help solve real life problems to help our planet.
Thanks to Pete Beasley and Connected Energy:see c-e-int.com for more details.
This week, we started the first of our new RSE lessons. This week was focusing on emotions and how these might change during puberty. We had fun drawing
‘emotional rollercoasters’ and thinking of different emotions that a person might feel at different times during their day or week.
Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh is going to be the inspiration for our next piece of artwork. After learning a little about Van Gogh’s life and his artistic
style, we had a lovely and relaxing session exploring swirls and shades of blue in our sketch books. We also listened to Don McLean’s song, ‘Starry
Night’, at the same time.
Thank you to everyone who came to our assembly last week. The class had all worked hard preparing what they were going to say and show and it was great to have so many parents with us. They also did a brilliant job with their first whole-class music performance - hope you enjoyed it too!
