World book day!

In class 5 we focused our work on a picture book called Tuesday by David Weisner. We used the illustrations to explain and predict events in the story. The children loved the book: “it allowed us to use our imagination about the plot” “We could make up our own descriptions.”

We based our class work on the investigation scene. Some of the class took part in role play became news reporters and eye witnesses and presented a live news report of the incident. Others became police investigators and interviewed the suspects and the witnesses to try and determine the reason for the events. We focused on how to show characterisation through speech.


During the afternoon, the children produced a newspaper report of the event.


Sound check challenge!

We are enjoying using Times Tables Rock Stars in class 5 and I am seeing some very impressive application of multiplication knowledge in their work- well done!

Mrs A’s challenge: by next Wednesday can you achieve 25 points in the sound check area? Good luck and happy multiplying!

Science investigating!

In class today the children have carried out investigations that they had planned yesterday. The children wanted to explore the effect of increasing the number of cells had on components. They designed their own investigations and wrote accurate hypothesis. They then developed the mathematical concept of finding the mean in their data. On Friday, we will interpret and analyse our data.
