Class 5B's picture

The first week back in Term 5!

This week in Science, we have been learning about the life cycles of different organisms. We have studied mammals, birds, amphibians and flowering and non-flowering plants. We have drawn pictures and described the different stages of their life cycles. We only have insects left to discover…

To go with our work in Science, we have been practising telling the story of “La Chenille qui à fait les trous” (The Very Hungry Caterpillar) and we plan to show it to our partner classes in Year 2 next week we hope.

In English, we have been imitating a warning narrative called The Caravan. We have made a story map to help us retell the story, have investigated the different features of the text and also used it for a reading comprehension.

We have been calculating amounts of money in Maths, adding and subtracting mentally and counting on to give change.

On Friday we started creating some art in the style of Bridget Riley. Some of the examples made your eyes go a bit funny and some of us found it quite tricky at first. We will be resilient and keep trying until we finish!

In PE we have been discussing what make good leadership skills. This is what we decided:

  • Give everybody a chance
  • Don’t be bossy
  • Listen respectfully
  • Encourage everyone
  • Show you are trustworthy
  • Believe in yourself and have a good spirit

In Games we have been playing ball games, perfecting our throwing and catching skills. Next week some of us are going to Bloxham School for Tennis coaching.

We have been thinking about our own personal qualities in PSHE and have written our peer comments for our reports.

In Music, we have started learning about Indian music, Bhangra style and have been practising “Climb” by Miley Cyrus for the Leavers’ Service.

Thank you to the Mercury bloggers.
