Computing

Year 5 looked at Scratch today. They began by showing all the things they have learnt from before…which is quite a lot! It was impressive to see how the class helped each other to complete a sequence and edit the sequence to change the timings etc.

ERIC in the Library

Today Year 5 had a chance to see the newly-sorted, fantastic library!
The books flew off the shelves, as the class devoured them. The Dog Man series was very popular, as well as some of the beautifully illustrated factual books.
We just can’t wait for our next session!

Earth and Space

Year 5 have begun their science topic of Earth And Space. The children had lots of facts to share with each other and over the topic we will be able to clarify some of these ideas.
The children have some rocket words which are key topic words – these will be reviewed each lesson.
Our rocket words for this topic are:
Heliocentric
Geocentric
Nicolous Copernicus
Ptolemy
Orbit
Ask Kestrels if they can explain them to you. We are trying to remember them and their definitions.
We also looked at the planets in the Solar System. We have learnt a mnemonic to help remember the order of the planets. It is:
My Very Energetic Mother Just Served Us Noodles
Have a look at Jessica’s super neat work.

PE

Year 5 had their first PE session today. They impressed Mr Gill with their listening skills, organisation and teamwork. They managed to play on 4 separate pitches and rotate their groups to play each other. Well done Year 5.
