Our enquiry: Can I help save the Amazon Rainforest?
This term we will be researching the Amazon Rainforest. Throughout this enquiry, we will be encompassing geography, science, writing, mathematics, art, ICT and more in order to understand the dangers it faces and how we can affect and help to maintain it. We will be working towards creating our own campaign film, informing the public and persuading them that they can make a difference towards protecting our rainforests!
The book that we will be looking at to accompany our enquiry is: The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry.
Week 2: Back up and running
This week in Pear class we have been getting ourselves used to normal lessons again. In Maths, we have begun to look at place value and why this is so important in helping us to understand number. We have been discussing what a million looks like and used our knowledge of place value, and making numbers ten times larger, to estimate how many blades of grass there are on the field. It was nice to do some outside learning whilst the Sun is still here! In writing we have been looking at recounts and using our targets from last year to show off to Mr Hall our writing skills. Furthermore, we have been looking at the Creation story in RE and have been using the Bible to understand it's different parts. It was also time to make our vote count during school council class elections. Mr Hall was so impressed to see so many people put themselves forward for this fantastic role of responsibility. The candidates all made a speech in front of the class, outlining why they should be elected to represent our class before conducting a blind vote. We are so excited to find out who has been successful!
First week back
This week has been our first in Pear class and we have come back with a bang! It has been strange moving to the second floor but we are getting used to it and are already enjoying being in year 5. So far we have explored what it means to be a good learner and have decided upon what we believe we should be doing this year to achieve this. Furthermore, we have been exploring online safety and learning about how strong passwords (both online and offline) can help to keep us safe and our personal information secure. Friday has been particularly exciting as we have voted for who we want to elect as house captains for our houses as well as completing a vote for who we want to represent our class on the school council. We can’t wait to discover who the successful candidates will be next next week!
