Learning in Class 5

 

Gosh, this has been an eventful week! It has been jam packed with lessons, from singing to bingo. It has also been Friendship Week, we don’t know how we fit it all in!

 

On Monday the choir had an exciting visit to St. Albans Cathedral, with lots of other schools. We sung lots of hymns and took part in a great harvest service, and I think we all enjoyed the “How to Eat a Jelly Baby Test.” Unfortunately, we all got it wrong.

 

In Maths we have been looking at angles and working out the degrees of them. We had to find the missing degrees, if we were given one of them. Also we’ve been learning about translating and rotating shapes; two of the four ways in transforming shapes. We have also tried to broaden our understanding of mathematical vocabulary.  Do you know what some of these words mean? (Congruent, parallel, perpendicular, adjacent)

 

In English we have been learning about biographies and autobiographies. Some of us read a biography about Queen Victoria; others had one about Malorie Blackman. We also looked at the features of writing a biography. This is important as we are building up to writing a biography soon linked with our topic of Victorians, favourite authors or even a member of the local community as part of our local study.

 

As this week was Friendship Week we spent time in the afternoons looking at different ways to celebrate this. We made our own game of friendship bingo. We had to write lots of interests that a person may have. For example likes dancing or has a pet. We wrote them down on a bingo board template, then we went around the classroom and asked people if they shared those interests as a way of getting to know people more. If they shared the interest , then you would write their name on the bingo card. Some of us also looked at writing a recipe for friendship and to end the week we all wrote our individual friendship pledges. Do take a look when you come along to Family Week!

 

We have also been looking to develop our enquiry skills in history and finding our learning about a local study of St.Ippolyts interesting. We looked around the school taking pictures of the Victorian features that are there. We found the string that makes the bell ring in the library. We looked outside and saw the two bell towers on the roof of the library and Class 5. We also found where a fireplace would have been in Class 5. We also learnt to spot the features that showed the living quarters for the Headmaster. Some of us put this on Corkulous; an app that we have been using in lessons. We also watched a video about how to use a school to form part of a local study in your area. We used the L.A.C.E method: Look- Ask-Conclude- Expand. Look out for this in our Class assembly next week.

 

In PE we played bench ball. We were separated into 3 teams, there were two benches at both ends of the hall and cones going along the middle. There was a team at each side of the cones. We had to throw the ball over to the other team to the bench. If they caught it, you would go onto the bench with them.

 

In the theme of Friendship Week we had a special treat from Gripping Yarns and watched a great performance. It was about Snid the bully and Sam the new boy. Simon told the story very well and it was very entertaining. We really enjoyed it and the puppets he used were AMAZING!!After watching the story we made leaflets about anti bullying. Some of us also had a go at writing stories based on this theme to send off to Simon to see if he wanted to use our ideas.

 

We really enjoyed this week, it was fun.  Thank you for taking the time to read our blog, we hope that you enjoyed it.

 

Good Bye!!
