We have had a very busy first term in Year 5. Here are some of our highlights …
Minecraft Maths – We built shapes in the ground and used calculations to find out their area and perimeter.
Perimeter = The space around the shape.
Area = The space inside the shape.
We have used Talk For Writing to learn a persuasive letter off by heart. This has enabled us to learn the grammatical structure of a persuasive letter, which will be a huge help when we write a letter to KP Snacks!
We have used Newton-meters to measure the weight of objects around the classroom. Even though we usually think of weight as being measured in grams, it is a force that we can measure in newtons (N).
For our previous topic, Changing States, we learned about reversible and irreversible changes. We made butter by shaking a jar of cream until butter formed in the middle, and we made toast, which is an irreversible change.
We rounded off our topic on the Ancient Greeks with a feast! Pitta bread with hummus was a big favourite.
