Today we went to the University of Hertfordshire to listen to author and poet A F Harrold.  He was great entertainment and read us his poems including a very funny one about cornflakes.  Never again will Year 5 think of them in the same way!

Learning about negative numbers in Mathematics

 

Using games is a great way to learn maths. Year 5 enjoyed trying get their counter to the end of a number line first.

Royal Wedding Celebrations

What beautiful weather we had for our Royal Wedding celebrations. We played traditional circle games, led by Year 6 children, followed by cake, squash and ice lollies, kindly supplied by the PSA. We also sang the National Anthem and listened to traditional British songs.

Summer Term Newsletter

Team GB

We had a fantastic time with the Team GB athletes this week, we tried sprinting relays with Deji and Jack. We got a question and answer session with them afterwards, and we were fascinated by their journey to becoming professional athletes. 

Live Learning 

Thank you to everyone who came to our live learning afternoon! We had lots of families coming in to see us and we had a fantastic learning experience.

We made mind maps about the Manchester Ridge Backed Dragon and learned about the differences between open and closed questions. Which ones did you think were more effective? Following this, we acted out a role play for a television interview with a presenter, dragon expert and director. 

Here are some photos for those unable to attend, and some some from us continuing the lesson the next day (with the props!).

The Chocolate Game 

 

 

In addition to our farm to fork week, we also played "the chocolate game". We worked in teams as a part of the cocoa bean supply chain. We discovered that in a non- fair trade system, some people got a lot more money than others, when they weren't necessarily the ones that had worked the hardest or were the most deserving. We grew, bartered and bargained our way to the end to see how a fair trade system can work for everyone,no matter what the climate, supply or demand is like.

Farm to Fork Week

 

 

Class 5:2 loved seeing the farm animals in the playground, the farmers were very informative and we were even allowed to stroke and feel the animals, an exciting opportunity for everyone! We have shared some fantastic work outcomes about which processes need to happen for food to get from the farm to being ready to eat from our plate. We took part in a variety of activities in the carousel around school. The one in our class was art inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

Chinese Dragons

 

We celebrated Chinese New Year in style! We made 4 Chinese dragons and the best one was chosen to be in the parade. We watched videos of traditional Chinese dragon parades to model the way we needed to dance and move our bodies to make the dragon move.

Festive fun in 5.2!

This week two beautiful reindeer came to Howe Dell Primary School. It was great to see them and to ask the expert lots of questions. We were also lucky enough to go Christmas shopping and to choose beautiful presents for our friends and family. Today we made our Christmas hats for our Christmas lunch tomorrow. What an exciting time of year!
