We have a had a great day for our Rainforest Day. We have made rainforest cupcakes, created rainforest games on scratch and learnt a rainforest song. We also made clay rainforest animals.
This week we have worked hard writing manifestos for our Perfect Island. Children decided how they would run an island and what rules they would have. There were some great ideas! On Monday, children made speeches to their groups about their ideas and then we looked around everyone's manifestos.
After a secret ballot, we had a coalition between Grace G and Toby. Well done!
In maths we have been learning about measurements and converting metric measurements.
Year 5 are also very excited about planning their stalls for young enterprise ready for the Christmas Fayre. They only have a budget of £10. Who will make the most profit? There will be lots of preparations happening next week, ready for Friday.
We have had a very busy week in Year 5!
On Monday we encountered a very entertaining assesmbly to launch our 'Take one book week' focused on the book, The Accidental Prime Minister. In the assembly, we met Joe (the main character played by Toby) who stands up for ideas and ends up taking over the country as Prime Minister. Throughout the week we have focused on a theme of government and politics, particularly British Values.
Children have designed a manifesto on the premise of 'If I were Prime Minister....' in order to create the perfect world. There have been some very interesting ideas put forward so far and I look forward to seeing the finished project next week.
On Wednesday, we had our parents maths workshop for Year 5 and 6. Mrs Rawnson and Miss Arrandale introduced mastery and what this looks like in the classroom. Then parents had the opportunity to work with their children on a variety of fluency, reasoning and problem solving tasks.
A very busy but enjoyable week!
