Year 5 have produced some wonderful maths through art. They have been very creative in lessons. In their last activity, they explored parabolic curves. The children had to follow a pattern and join selected dots to create their design.
This week, Year 5 have had many of their maths lessons outside. They have had to find angles (acute and obtuse) in the natural environment and set maths trails using the outside area.
Today, they created free-standing newspaper towers. They were only allowed to use newspaper and cellotape. The highest tower reached 2.16m!
Year 5 were lucky enough to be able to join part of Year 2’s visit. This was an excellent way to begin our topic too. We really enjoyed meeting different animals. Mrs Karmock was impressed by what the children already knew!
Year 5 have produced some amazing work as part of their Home Learning grid this half term – well done – you should be very proud!
The children have been busy designing, making, drawing, writing, researching and even baking! We have certainly enjoyed tasting the delights made. Keep up the good work Year 5!
On Wednedsay 12th March, Year 5 took part in a Tag Rugby Workshop. They had great fun and really improved their skills. Challenge Sports told Miss Esom what a polite and hard-working class Year 5 had been – well done children!
During the week commencing 3rd March, the whole school took part in Maths Week. We had a real-life maths day, outdoors maths day, vocabulary day, shape day and operations day. It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to use practical maths with a variety of different equipment. We had great fun!
The children had the opportunity to bake fairy cakes. They were set the challenge of doing this totally independently – reading the recipe, collecting equipment, weighing and measuring and more! The children did amazingly well and all cakes were a success – fabulous!
We also had great fun drawing coordinates on a large grid on the playground.
Finding acute and obtuse angles in the dell and school grounds was great fun too!
An excellent week was had by all! We will definitely enjoy working in the dell more and more for our lessons!
It was lovely to see so many of you at the ‘Meet the Teacher’ session today.
