To Measure Forces

This afternoon in Science we were learning all about forces, there are two main types of forces, push and pull. We had to figure out which direction you would go for pull and which one for push.We went outside and used different materials so we could figure out the different forces and how they work.

 

Viking Projects

Today we brought in our viking projects we had worked on over the holidays. Some of us brought axes, ships, weapons and some created fact files on the vikings. We showed our projects to the class. We then followed it into our Literacy lesson where we retold a viking story, using nouns and adjectives.

Designing Our Own Keynote

This afternoon we were designing and creating our own keynotes using iPads , we included titles, text and images. We made sure we included interesting facts and amazing pictures, understanding how to crop them and edit the text. What do you think our keynotes were about?

Addition and subtraction problem solving.

The children of Class 5 have today been using their knowledge of addition and subtraction to solve problems. The problems involved bar modelling, missing number questions and worded problems. They used mental and formal written methods to solve their problems and checked their answers using the inverse operations.

Writing play scripts

Today in Class 5 the children were writing their own play scripts based on well known fairy tales. They needed to use all of the features of a play script including: a cast list, stage directions and dialogue. All of the children worked extremely hard to create their own script.

Which fairy tale would you choose to write a play script for?
