Welcome to 5B!
Our class teacher is Miss Beech and we are supported in class by many other wonderful adults in school.
In Maths, we have been looking at Place Value. Today, we made digit cards and our 'In Focus' task asked us to use all 16 digit cards to make 3 numbers greater than 10,000 but less than 1,000,000.
In Topic, we researched information about why corn and cocoa were important to the Ancient Mayan Civilisation. We then made Chocolate Bark using plain chocolate, cayan pepper, salt, vanilla extract and cocoa powder. We will try it tomorrow once it has hardened.
In English, we made traditional Mayan worry dolls. They are designed to take your worries away at night, whilst you sleep. Can you find yours?
In Science, we have been learning about how the planets move around the Solar System. We did a piece of drama to show this.
In English, we are continuing with Instructions. In todays lesson, we ordered instructions to make a card lizard. We found this tricky, as despite ordering them correctly, some of the instructions were quite vague, meaning they all turned out differently.
Today in English, we were using imperative verbs. We played Charades to see if our partner could guess which imperative verb we were acting out.
Today, we had an immersion day for our English topic about Instructions. We made chocolate cornflake cakes and then wrote a simple set of instructions about how we made them.
In 5B, we have had a democratic vote to decide who is going to be our Student Council Representative for the year. The children all gave fantastic speeches, and once the votes were counted, Oliver received this role. Well done Oliver!
