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?
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?
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?
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?
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?
