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.

Maths

In maths we did multi part problem solving, we solved questions like part whole models, bar models and last but definitely not least we played strike them out a fun number game that the aim was to get your opponent out by making sure they can’t use any number combination.

Skateboarding

First we put our knee and elbow pads on.Then we put on are helmets. And then we held on to our partners hand and jumped on to are skateboard. Then we held the persons hand and pushed down the playground. After that, we learnt how to push off all on our own. We learnt how to flick the skateboard. This was easy…with practice.

We had lots of fun and hope to do it again.
