Practical 3D shape maths

After working on shape names and properties, we created 3D shapes from card and Polydron nets, and then took on the challenge of building large skeleton shapes. Octahedrons and hexahedrons with triangular faces turned out to be our favourite skeleton shapes to build!

British Science Week - Land Yachts

World Book Day: we wrote our own poems inspired by “The Lost Words”. We tried to include a range of poetical features, and our challenge was to use high-level vocabulary.

Check out some of our fabulous descriptive writing snippets, inspired by our current class book: The Nowhere Emporium by Ross MacKenzie ...

 

In front of the crowd, which had soon gathered, stood a gold, shimmering door. - Molly 

'sweet scent of the salty sea' - Melissa 

The shop seemed colossal. - Elliott

'a paradise with azure blue grass; a ruby red lake and a stone fountain' - Isaac 

'smells of tropical mango; dry coconut fallen from the trees and ....' - Isobel 

'blue shimmering, shiny bricks which were a dark, damp, stormy ocean' - Emily 

'glitter formed a carpet from the intricate door and a unicorn as white as crisp falling snow' - Esme 

It smelt like toast ready to be eaten. - Toby 

 

 

 

 

We were busy doing lots of hands on Fractions learning in our first week back ....

We used geometry to create our Christmas card snowflakes. We found out more about the magic of maths when we used compasses to construct hexagons from circles as the basis of our designs.

Active Maths 12.11.18

We are lucky enough to have some microscopes on loan to school at the moment.

October update! 

Y4/5 have been really busy already in this first week of October! We have been focussing on newspaper report writing in English and have been working hard to use some excellent new vocabulary that we have learnt including: astounding, death-defying and majestic! We have also had a go at composing our own version of Vivaldi's Autumn and have been doing some active maths activities to keep fit whilst we exercising our brains too! 

Our parent consultation evenings are coming up ... Mrs Pape will be meeting parents on the Tuesday evening and Mrs Peters on the Thursday - we look forward to seeing many of you there. 

We are currently looking out for GENEROSITY in all classes in school and adding good examples to our new Christian Values trees. This proverb will be going up in our classroom next week for us to think about ... 

 

One gives freely, yet grows all the richer;
another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.
