Science was great fun this afternoon (even if the classroom smelled of vinegar all evening). We were investigating irreversible changes and used a liquid ( vinegar ) and a solid ( bicarbonate of soda) to create a gas. When the two were put together, a chemical reaction occurred and the fizzy substance created a gas, which filled the balloon.
Vivacious vibes danced in the Christmas parade on Sunday! They were fantastic and helped to make Leigh feel very festive!
We've been in our own clothes, pyjamas and spotty things, all in aid of Children in Need! Look how much we raised!
Today we've been using the iPads and laptops to research animals on the WWF website. We've been looking at animals that are endangered, vulnerable and threatened. Next week we will be working toward writing a report about our chosen animal.
The children took over in maths today!
Such wonderful writing for our nature documentaries!
We talked about the Good Samaritan today in class worship.
Anti-bulling week has begun! We wore our odd socks and spent the day talking about respect. We wrote secret messages of kindness as a surprise for each other.
Sadie Melling, who represented England in the Invictus games, came to visit us this week. She was really inspirational and had some wonderful stories of her time in Austrailia.
The Ugandan choir made our Tuesday very cheerful!
Our visit to the church exhibition was very interesting and taught us a lot about those who caught in World War I.
Dividing numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 using straws to help our understanding
Today, in history, we learned about what was found at Sutton Hoo. Ask the children about the artefacts we examined and why we went into the playground with 89 rulers.
These were the questions we answered about the artefacts found at Sutton Hoo.
What do you think the object was?
What do you think it was used for?
What materials do you think it was made from?
How large do you think the item is?
Encourage your families to have a go and look for other artefacts on the British Museum website.
Here are few snaps from our battle cries. We really got into character and loved using the green screen.
Today, Year Five have worked collaboratively to write their persuasive speeches for their battle cries. Tomorrow, they will be challenged to 'Show what they know' and write independently. Judging by today's ideas and quality of writing they will have some fantastic speeches ready to record at the end of the week.
We're settling into Year Five maths very nicely with some place value work.
Using concrete resources to support us.
Solving reasoning problems is tough but we did it!
