We would like to welcome parents to our upcoming showcase on Friday 24 June from 8:50-9:40 in the year 5 classrooms.
- The children had a fantastic time at Nanbeihu and we are sure they have many found memories of this exciting experience. Please check out the blog entries for photographs from our residential trip.
This week we will be looking at newspaper articles and reports. The children will identify the features of a newspaper article and will discuss what they are used for and how they impact on the reader. The children will be given a variety of newspaper articles and will be asked to write a summary based on the headline. If you have any newspapers or magazines at home, please send them in!
This week in Maths we will begin to prepare some problem solving questions linked to the theme of Space. The children will be preparing resources for our upcoming showcase on 24 June. They will be making mathematical questions and problems for parents to solve at the showcase. There will be problems linked to area, perimeter, shape and number work. The children will have to know the answers and work backwards to create a mathematical problem.
Preparations for our showcase will continue with the children making the finishing touches to their work on planets and space. The children will be presenting their findings in a variety of ways. Some will be creating posters, diagrams, fact files and model planets!
This week we will be reflecting on our time in Nanbeihu. We will be discussing the challenges that the children faced and how they overcame them. We will discuss what strategies we used to overcome our fears and how a positive approach and encouragement from our peers can help us.
