Drawing and Painting – Ruth Daniels 

As part of our rainforest work this half term we have looked at some prints by Ruth Daniels.  We have drawn some parts of the prints thinking about line and shade and then we were able to get the paints out.

 

  Chester Zoo 

Last week we went to Chester Zoo.  We had the opportunity to look at different animals, including orangutans, monkeys, bat, butterflies and lions.  The bat cave was scary but fun – some people were screaming!  At lunch we were allowed to play in the large park.  We were also fortunate to be able to learn more about the rainforest in a special workshop.  

       

The day was so much fun, but we were so tired at the end.

Healthy lifestyles – Y4 and Y3 - We have been looking at healthy lifestyles.  We went to different classes and did various activities on being healthy. First, in our class, we learnt about teeth and wrote our own song.  Then we went to Miss Sanderson and did P4C where we were discussing moral behaviour through stories.  After we went to Y3 to look at the importance of food for our body. 

        

 

This week we have been talking about different religions.  We looked at the various symbols which are related to the religions.  Then we were talking about the religions’ different rules and beliefs and similarities between them.

 

It has been our Sports Day!  

We went down to Seedhill and ran various races.  It was great fun – we even changed some of our races as we were so quick.

March/ April Update

Class 5S (Class 5S) on: 5S

Our assembly this year was about the solar system. 

As we zoomed around the planets and the moon, we gave lots of facts, things we had discovered over the term. 

Did you know... Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon? 

That must have been exciting!

In Geography we have been learning about rainforests. We read about some tribes and used this to support us in making posters. In addition, we looked at the different layers of the rainforest. These include the canopy and understory.

 

Home Learning Explorers - Our half term home learning project was to create an explorer from a set of instructions. This included writing short messages in the pockets. 

What do you think they are looking at?

On Thursday 20th June, Year 5 visited Chester zoo where we enjoyed a fun packed day.

We took a trip through the Amazon and saw lots of creatures such as the three toed sloth and the jaguar.
