Currently we are working towards making a Mayan Mask. First we researched different types of Mayan Masks and the we carefully designed our own. Next we worked in pairs to Papier-mâché a balloon and now we are adding our own personal features. We cannot wait to paint and decorate them!Crazy Creatures - 25th November 2016 Today pupils have each written a mini saga for Young Writers’ creative writing competition called, Crazy creatures. A mini saga is a complete story in just 100 words – a fun challenge indeed! The competition is a great way of encouraging pupils to get involved with creative writing and inspire them to put pen to paper. We will be posting our mini sagas off to Young Writers very soon and hope to have a selection of pupils chosen for publication in a book! Mayan Banquet
In class this week we tried a range of Mayan cuisine such as salsa, guacamole, hot chocolate and even frog's spawn! After that we created our own Mayan Menu's. It was lots of fun!Measurement
We have been exploring weight, capacity and length. We have developed our measuring, estimating and converting skills
Year 5 have returned to school with outstanding attitudes and heaps of enthusiasm! On the first week back we explored what it means to 'Turn over a new leaf'. We created prayer flags asking God for guidance and support in this coming academic year and hung them on our special tree in front of the school.
Year 5 have kicked started the year off by participating in our class reading restaurant. We had a taste of lots of book genres and read lots of blurbs to get us excited to read a range and a variety of books this year. Remember it is essential to read every night and record it in the children's reading diaries.
On the 13th September the children celebrated Roald Dahl's centenary by dressing up as their favourite characters. Our class book is currently 'The BFG' and we are really enjoying it!
On 23rd September our class had a special visitor , A TIME LORD! She took us back in time to the Mayan Civilisation 4,000 years ago. We learnt lots of new interesting facts and even met King Pakal. What a wonderful way to start our topic!
On the 3rd of October our class had a visit from past pupil, Patrick Anglin. Patrick plays for Warrington Wolves Rugby Club and inspired everyone to achieve their dreams!
