This week in Class 5 we have been continuing our work on fractions. Please ask your children to demonstrate their actions for numerator, denominator, improper and mixed fractions!
In English we have been reading Tom's Midnight Garden as a class and learning about the stories context such as Victorian gardens. We will be developing this further next week in our descriptive writing!
Week Ending 29th of April 2021
This week we have begun our new topic 'Time Traveller'. In this project we will be exploring ourselves past, present and future. We began by look at time, Mr Browne took down the class clock and at different intervals we made predictions as to what time we thought it was. We discovered that some of us have amazing internal clocks and some of us... not so much!
In English we have been writing character descriptions, exploring expanded noun phrases, metaphors and similes.
This week saw the first session of Class 5's Gardening Club, this is following on from our previous project 'Sow, Grow and Farm' where we planned a St. Mary's allotment. Keep your eyes peeled updates in the coming weeks!
Finally we have been exploring the work of surrealist artist Salvador Dali, especially his painting 'The Persistence of Memory' which features melting clocks. We used this as our inspiration for our own clock drawings created with oil pastels and sugar paper.
