Fifth Class 1
September in 5th Class
We are delighted to welcome everyone back into our class. This month we settled in with a focus on ourselves and our wellbeing and our focus this year is on positive relationships. We reminded ourselves of our rainbow moments and created amazing rainbows that brighten up the hallways. We worked hard to set up our Google Classroom and had fun using it at home. We learned all about Kathrine Johnson and Malala Yousafzai and worked hard at making our own projects on ‘Amazing Women in History’, using Google slides. We wrote amazing pieces of recount based on Katherine Johnson in English. In science we were learning about force, we made levers by creating Wag the Dog and we made and tested parachutes. We made Amazing self-portraits and symmetrical name monsters in Art. Take a look at our fantastic work.
October in 5th Class
In October we learned all about Mexico and the Aztecs. The girls worked really hard at home to produce some amazing projects on google slides. We also did a project on Mexico and worked in groups to make and present them. We focussed on report writing in English and wrote a news report about a volcano erupting. We also wrote informational reports on Mexico and researched our own topics in the computer room to write a report on. In Art we used the pumpkin patch as inspiration and painted beautiful pumpkins, we also used inspiration from Frida Kahlo a Mexican artist to create spooky skeletons. We then took inspiration from our Aztecs to create amazing Aztec masks. In PE we focussed on creative dance we used the songs from Hocus Pocus to transform ourselves into witches and create our own dances. In SPHE we learned all about empathy and wrote and published Empathy poems. We also worked hard at our maths during maths week and made our Climate Action pledges during Climate Action Week. We had a busy October and are looking forward to our midterm break!
