We have been extremely busy over the last two weeks preparing for Christmas! We have been preparing and performing our whole school Nativity, making gingerbread, making Christmas cards and creating Christmas hats to wear to our Christmas lunch!
Here are lots of pictures of what we have been up to...
We welcomed parents into our classroom to share some of the learning from the last two terms in Geography and DT. As part of our cultural food DT topic we made some gingerbread and our parents helped us decorate them following our designs.
We loved sharing this learning with our parents and can't wait to show them what we have been learning next time!
In PE we have been doing gymnastics. We have been creating our own routines using balances, different ways of travelling and creating shapes.
We worked indvidually and in groups to create our routines.
Over the half term the children were asked to create their own maths board games. WOW! They all looked absolutely incredible! We played them in our maths lesson today and the children really enjoyed themselves. Well done year 5!
We really enjoyed our languages day on Monday. We started the day with a whole school assembly then came back to class to immerse ourselves in to Greek culture! We started out by learning about the country of Greece and the countries that speak Greek around the world. Did you know that there are only two countries in the world that have Greek as their official language, Greece and Cyprus.
We learnt how to count to 20 in Greek, the Greek alphabet, root words that have come from Greek and we even did some Greek dancing!
We are so lucky to have so many different languages in our class that we shared how to say different phrases in a variety of languages.
We had Kosma's mum come into class in the afternoon to teach us about the Slavic language.
We had a fantastic day!
Thank you to those of you who attended our meet the teacher session. Here is a copy of the slides with all the information we talked about.
Welcome to our Year 5 class page! On here I will be posting lots of information about what we have been doing in class, pictures of our work, homework and our Star of the week.
We are really looking forward to spending the year ahead with the children and can't wait to get started!
If any of you ever have any questions, feel free to come and ask.
