Global Week

This week we will be focusing on the great outdoors.In Monday’s assembly each class got a leaf or fruit to represent their class.We got a Lime to represent Lime class.Each class got a raised bed to decorate with flowers and greenery. On Monday afternoon we discussed which plants we were going to put in our raised beds.We want to put in there strawberry’s, sun flowers, some herbs and perhaps a Lime tree.Miss P-S also said that we will drill the lime onto the side of the raised bed so we know it’s defiantly ours. We will be painting it this week so keep an eye out for it outside ! Also we went outside for maths as part of outdoor learning in global week and did short multiplication. Have a look!

Drama and Debates!

Today in Lime class we had a brilliant English lesson filled with drama. We made phone calls to each other pretending that we were astronauts going into space with the 2030 Mars manned mission. Of course we had to imagine we were 11 years into the future. Some brilliant conversation revolved around how they were feeling and their astronaut training.🌚🚀

In topic, we looked into heliocentric and geocentric theories of the universe. We took inspiration from a debate seen between Galileo and Copernicus and voted on who was the best scientist and why. We then wrote our own debates from the perspective of our chosen scientist and performed some of them to the class. 🌍🌕

Every Monday after lunch year 5s go into the hall to do fencing. We have to wear special masks ,jackets and swords.In our lessons we have learnt to fence, lunge and special fencing footsteps.In today’s lesson we played a game to test how quick you are on your feet and if you could grab the glove that people had behind them.
