Learning in Class 5


Wow! What a week! We are all tired out, especially Mrs. Stewart. I am sure you are on the edge of your seats to find out what we have been doing. Well here it is, all in full context…without the technical glitch. We did do a blog last week but it went missing in Cyberland.

 In computing we have been making Top Trumps cards to help us understand databases a bit better. We also learnt about’ big data’ and ‘digital footprints’ .A lot of people made football Top Trumps, well mainly boys anyway. There were some interesting Top Trumps too, like computer games and singers. A digital footprint is the word used to describe the trail, traces or “footprints” that people leave online. It has been interesting and helpful for heading to secondary school.

In maths we have been learning about angles and the technical language associated with them. Using a protractor, we drew and measured angles. We also looked at fractions of amounts as well.

In literacy we have been writing an opening for a ghost story as part of our narrative unit. We had to use a high level of punctuation and language. Not only that but we had to create short sentences to create suspense. We have been set the challenge for homework to complete these. We will then edit them and create our own short story to be displayed in the library.

Bonjour! In French we have been learning numbers to sixty nine. Can you spot the pattern: Zero, Dix, Vingt, Trente, Quarante, Cinqante, Soixante.

In R.E we have been learning about how we express our beliefs in God. We looked at some ways in which our beliefs are influenced. We looked at a range of art and listened to music and then took time to discuss our views with others.

In history and geography we have started to look at our topic of a local study of St.Ippolyts. We wrote down what we knew and what we wanted to find out about. This is a K.W.L. We will be writing to members of the community to find out about St.Ippolyts. What better resource than using members of the community.

On Monday we had another big splash at Hitchin pool. We improved our skills in swim breaststroke and we all got very wet.

Earlier today (Fri 3rd Oct) was all of the year sixes last harvest festival! We all gave donations to Hitchin Food Bank. This links to this half terms value – Generosity! 

We also wanted to tell you about what we have been doing in early morning work. We have been doing dingbats and word ladders. You can try a few as part of our Family Week activity day. We are looking forward to Friendship Week next week too!

 Reminder, Important!

No swimming or Code club on Monday due to the choir going to St. Albans Cathedral, we wish them the best of luck.

Thank you for taking the time to read the weekly blog and sorry again for the glitch last week. Goodbye!
