Mrs Nea’s 5th class have had a very busy week this week. We’ve been concentrating on 2D shapes in maths where we’ve learned the properties of shapes including different types of triangles and the parts of a circle. We’ve begun learning and researching about the Ancient Greeks in our History lessons. Did you know that we got so many things from the Greeks such as the alphabet, maths, science, drama, philosophy and even the Olympics! We painted fabulous vases in Ancient Greek design for art. We have begun rugby skills with Neil Taylor and we love learning the skills needed to be a cooperative team. Our class have also started weekly sessions of computer coding called Scratch. This is where we learn to use code to make a character move across the screen. The most exciting part of our learning this week has been our science experiment! We are learning about materials such as solids, liquids and gases. We worked as scientists using jelly to prove that the state of something can change from a solid, into a liquid and back to a solid again depending on the elements. The best part of the experiment was that we got to eat it in the end!
Each class level writes on this blog. We post information about what it happening in our school.
