Class 5B's picture

This week, in RE, we have been learning about Hinduism. We have listened to the story of Rama and Sita and made Divali lamps out of clay. We also had our Harvest Service in church. Everyone played their part well and sang enthusiastically, although “We Plough the Fields and Scatter” went quite high!

In Maths we have been measuring perimeters of rectangles and converting cm to m. For our Home Learning we also measured ourselves following Leonardo da Vinci’s measurements for his drawing of Vetruvian Man. Some of us found that his proportions were quite close to our own, and some didn’t. We practised quick fire subtracting in our Wakey Wakey activities.

In English we have been imitating and innovating shape poems. We wrote a class poem imitating a poem called Waves.  We have been editing and improving our work with thesauruses and investigating alliteration and onomatopoeia to make our writing as brilliant as possible. We are writing a shape poem for home learning too.

In French, we have continued to practise our High Street vocabulary and played Battleships.

We wrote captions for pictures of the hills we built in Geography, and then drew our own contours. We are getting good at this!

In Games, we are still continuing to practise our Rugby and Cross Country skills. We are also making a big effort to listen really carefully!

Our 12 bar blues sequence is coming on. It was tricky at first but we are getting there! Mrs N-C says our keyboard skills are really improving.

Word of the Week:  summit

Thought of the Week: It matters not how many times you fall,

What matters is how many times you rise.
