We have achieved so much this term!
In maths we have learnt the method of long division in preparation for year 6! We have also been learning about converting metric measurements.
In English we have been reading our text 'A little piece of ground' by Elizabeth Laird. It is about the conflict between Israel and Palestine, from the perspective of Karim, a Palestinian boy.
In science we have been learning about life cycles of animals and plants. In addition, we've been creating our own scripts about why we should look after the planet.
In art we have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy and we looked at his work to do with nature and colour. Furthermore, we created a picture inspired by his work, however we were only allowed to use the colours that he had used.
In P.E. we have been doing dodgeball in the hall and tennis in the playground.
In R.E we were learning about the 5 pillars of Islam and the 10 Commandments.
In ukuleles we were practising the chords that we learnt in term 4, and learning the notes.
In Spanish we have been creating posters with key vocabulary about a specific topic of our choice.
Thanks for reading!
WE WON THE POETRY SLAM AT ST GEORGE'S!
Hello and welcome back, I hope that you had an excellent Easter break. Somehow it's term 5, where has the time gone? However, there's still so much more to achieve!
This term we'll be focusing on the question - 'Do we appreciate what's on our doorstep?' During the next 5 weeks we'll be investigating our home town and what's available on our doorstep. Through science we will also be investigating food chains, habitats, life cycles and seed dispersal.
At home your child could make a collage about their home and life in Bristol. They could collect photographs and discuss where their family have come from. This week we briefly discussed what a family tree is - this is something that your child could create using interview techniques to uncover information.
Here are some websites that your child can investigate to help with this topic.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/science/living_things/ - A selection of science games and activities.
https://maps.bristol.gov.uk/knowyourplace/ - A superb website showing a range of maps of Bristol during different periods of history.
