Year 5 - Chile

Term 2

Term 2 

Term 2 was an incredibly busy term for Year 5! We learnt about forces, biomes, basketball, figurative language, persuasive writing, data & statistics, Sonia Delaunay's artwork in our curriculum. 

We also made gingerbread houses for the Christmas Fayre, explored forces in science, sang carol at the Old Rectory, took at trip on the RHDR to New Romney and performed a carol concert in St Nicholas' Church & performed our Christmas play, The Magic Jigsaw, at St Paul & St Peter's Church.

 

Maths

The children have been learning about data and statistics in maths. We have been collecting and presenting our own data and discussing the best way to present it. We found that our PE circuit needed to be presented in a table as there were too many units of measure to present it in a graph.

 

DT & Maths

Gingerbread Houses

We worked in pairs to design our houses, using many maths and DT skills over the two days.

 

PE

We developed our skills further in basketball, with some of the class going on to represent the school at the Shepway Sports Trust & School Games basketball tournaments, taking 1st, 2nd & 3rd place across the two events.

Music

We have been learning Christmas songs with Danny from Kent Music since Term 1 and this term we took a trip on the RHDR (picking us up from the school field) and went to St Nicholas' Church in New Romney, where the children performed a carol concert to the Mayor and their parents along with Greatstone school.

Science

In science we explored different forces and how they influence how we live our lives. We tested streamline shapes, air resistance (with parachutes) and forces in everyday activities such as running, jumping, basketball and hockey.

 

English

Our persuasive adverts for the latest broomsticks. Can you find our rhetorical questions, persuasive adjectives, incentives and slogans?

Our Potter Poems using figurative language. Which metaphors and similes have been used most effectively?

 

 

Term 1 in Chile!

Welcome to Year 5!

Ancient Greece

In history, we have been learning about Ancient Greece and how the Greeks influenced modern society.

We learnt about the two main city states, Sparta and Athens, and the differences between the two states. We have also found out the different roles of men and women in society during ancient greek times and the difference in roles for women in Sparta and Athens.

Check back next week after our 'Greek Workshop Day' with Living History Workshops!

As part of our homework challenge, Dan, Halime, Ruby and Sam made Greek bread and honey cake as one of their courses for their Greek menu.

The bread was delicious with dips, and the cake was very sweet!

 

Maths

In maths we have been learning about place value including 6 digit numbers and rounding to 100,000.

We also used our multiplication knowledge in a PE circuit. We tallied up our points, then multiplied it by either 4, 6, 7, 8 or 9 to find the total points for that station - it was great fun!

 

Science

This week we have been learning about Earth and Space - it's been out of this world!

Making a scaled model of the solar sytem using ratio, division and measuring.

SAM 1942 SAM 1925SAM 1933 

Recording shadows and angles at different times of the day.

SAM 1954

Creating phases of the moon

SAM 1969

PE

In PE we have been learning how to play the invasion game netball. We have been practising our different passes including: bounce pass, shoulder pass and chest pass. We have also had to learn how to pivot so that we can pass the ball to our team mates.
