The Iron Man has landed!

 

Class 5 enjoyed sculpting their Iron Man making sure he had a knee joint, fingers and red glowing eyes!

It is ready to display all our super writing.

Can you see any of the metal you donated?

Puppets.

Class 5 have really enjoyed designing and making their finger puppets. They have impressed us with their threading needles, fancy stitches and decorative detail.

Some even got to show them during our celebration assembly.

How could you improve your design next time?

Sew Easy.

Class 5 were busy testing their sewing skills yesterday sewing on a bead, trying out a running stitch and designing a finger puppet.

Which part did you find most tricky?

Aula Antem Anura (Hall of Frogs)

 

Look at our fabulous hall of frogs, all created in our book fortnight. We have made a museum type display to show off our wire frogs, framed frog pictures and non-chronological reports written in English.

We hope you like it!

What would your collection look like?

Wanted!

Class 5 were surprised to find that the hall had been taken over by a multitude of frogs, ducks, dogs and other pets. They were very excited to find out what this term’s book fortnight was going to be about. Some of their suggestions included, ideas about kidnapped pets, invasion of ducks and frogs on the run.

What imaginative young minds you have class 5!

What do you think will happen next?

Happy Birthday Ma’am.

Class 5 had a lovely time on Friday doing activities linked to the Queen’s 90th birthday. This included dressing up in red, white and blue and included planning a street party with a very strict budget. We also made and flew our very own Union Jack kites with pride in the afternoon.

What was your favourite activity throughout the day?

Phases of the Moon.

Class 5 have been learning about the different phases of the moon.

We made a model to demonstrate this, showing the positions of the moon at different times in the month.

Can you explain the difference between a waxing and waning gibbous?

Galileo, Galileo.

 

 

 

As part of our space topic we looked at the Geocentric and Heliocentric models of the universe.

We then researched the astronomers who proposed these theories, Ptolemy, Copernicus and Galileo and presented our findings.

What is the difference between these two models?

Scale of our Solar System.

 

 

Class 5 were busy using mathematical language to calculate the distances of the planets from the sun, using a scale.

They were surprised to see how close Mercury, Venus and Earth were in relation to the sun and then at the other end of the playground and barely visible was Neptune, at an amazing 45 metres away!

What surprised you most about the distances?
