The Role Model and Merit winners from Y5 this week.
The latest Pen Licence hero.
Phases of the Moon through the medium of Oreos. The children pulled a phase of the moon from an envelope and had to nibble their Oreo to match - everyone wanted a Full Moon! We learnt lots of tricky language as well as knowing which side the moon appears in each phase - waxing on the right and waning on the left.
5P's 1st Role Models and Merit Award winners of the year. Great manners, behaviour and attitude as well as the first pen licence given out.
5E’s Merit winners this week go to this impressive duo - never has a Pen Licence been given out so quickly! They have proved their worth with consistently accurate joins and neat presentation. Well done!
5E’s Role Models last week. They both settled back into school quickly and hit the ground running. A super attitude for week one.
In Science, we have been learning all about the Solar System. We carried out an investigation today to see how the position of the sun in the sky, at different times, affects the lengths of shadows. We used chalk to mark our shadows throughout the day on the playground. Next week, we will put the information into a line graph and discuss the patterns.
In Art, we have started to sketch the background for our Egyptian figure painting. Who would've thought there could be so much Maths in Art! We discussed pyramids (obviously!), fractions (dividing the paper into equal sections) and parallel lines. The next stage will be to paint the different layers of the background.
