First week in year 5
In English we are learning about the story of the BFG by Roald Dahl. We watched the cartoon version of the film in class. We have made our own made up words such as:
gloomsquiggler, fibbag, stinkbox,
So far year 5 have been learning the 12 bar blues on the keyboards, in Music. 5B is at the top of the Music chart for behaviour and effort and we enjoyed playing the boomwhackers and singing.
We are finding out about Leonardo da Vinci and have been learning to draw faces in proportion. Some of us are surprised how big our ears are and we all decided that noses are the trickiest part of the face to draw.
In Topic we are finding out about mountains. Our tables in the classroom are named after mountains: K2, Everest, Kilimanjaro, Fuji, Ben Nevis.
In Maths we have been reminding ourselves about place value and practising mental and written addition and subtraction. We also reminded ourselves about the mathematical symbols for more than and less than (see picture)
In Games we have been inventing our own warm ups and we are going to start playing rugby.
Quite a busy first week…
