We have had a lovely few days settling into Year Five. We started off the week by playing a detective game where we had to answer questions about ourselves, mix them all up, hand them back out and guess who we had in front of us. We then spent some time thinking about what we want to get out of Year Five. We thought about what support we might need, what we would like to learn about and how we can all help each other to be successful this year. After this, we thought it would be a good idea to find out a bit more about our class name - Foxes! So we got the IPads out and we did some research about foxes. We found out lots of interesting facts for our display.
In the afternoons this week, we have been working together to create a collaborative piece of art. Our first topic is all about the Industrial Revolution so we have been looking at the artist LS Lowry and we have had a go at creating our own industrial scene in his style. Have a look on the topic part of our page to see the results of this.
We have also been writing speeches to apply for the school council and have had a little look at what we can remember about place value in Maths ready for next week.
We are looking forward to our trip to Moira Furnace on Monday. Please remember to wear your school tops, your own choice of trousers and comfortable shoes. Please also remember your coat, packed lunches and water bottles.
See you next week,
