In our science lesson, we learnt about the different moon phases. The children created moon spinners to remember the key vocabulary and aid their explanations.
In our RSHE lesson, we learnt about team work. We collaborated to build towers out of newspaper and discussed the importance of involving everyone and having a role and a purpose within a team.
We researched the ‘Space Race’ between America and Russia and then created a timeline of events on our tables. The children collaborated to learn fascinating facts and develop their Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs).
We had a great few days together designing and decorating our own hats, surfboard bookmarks and making chocolate chaos lollies!
2000 water balloons = fantastic way to end the year
Year 5 had a fantastic day exploring the gardens at Antony House. The children are full of ideas and ready to write stories with tension, using their experiences as inspiration for their settings.
This week we have been investigating division. We have been using resources and pictures to understand exchanging in short division. We are becoming division experts!
During our topic launch, Year 5 recreated Pudding Lane by building Tudor houses. We invited Torpoint Retained Firefighters in to burn down the bakery. We watched the fire spread and all our hard work burn to smithereens, but it was great fun!
In Polzeath we love home learning – especially the edible kind! Thanks Grace. They were very yummy!
Year 5 have been studying Vincent Van Gogh and been learning how to paint using his techniques of long and short brush strokes. Today, we collaborated to paint large scale versions of the ‘Starry Night’ background. We are going to create our own ‘Starry Night’ display in the Year 5 corridor – watch this space!
