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.
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!).
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.
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.
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!
