Year 5 - Spain
Welcome to Spain class. We are in Year 5 and our teacher is Miss Walker. Miss Adcock is our Teaching Assistant.
As part of the school’s 8 week plan on using iPads, the children have all created their own presentations about Space – linking their knowledge from our Science topic and their new Computing skills. We have had some really nice sessions with each child doing a presentation to the rest of the class – and they’ve done all a great job so far!
Thank you to all of the parents who joined us for our Maths café last week. It was great to have so many people there – and even better to have so many who were willing to join with our times tables quiz at the start! The children enjoyed learning to draw parabolic curves and many were able to create their own pictures afterwards using their new skills.
On Thursday mornings, the children who have not been swimming have been working on a sequence of dance lessons. During these, they have worked brilliantly together to create their own routines in small groups and they have really impressed us with their imaginative moves, use of gymnastics, their teamwork and enthusiasm! For the final performance, they learned a routine from Mrs Purvis which they could all perform together to finish off their group work. Check out our Facebook page for a video!
As part of our learning about Earth and Space in Science, we went outside to improve our understanding of how the Earth and Moon move.We had to be much closer to the Sun than the Earth should really be; but we had a lot of fun rotating and orbiting at the same time. We all decided that being the moon was definitely the hardest job!
