Class 5DA/KK, 2015-16

It has been a busy start for 5DA but we are now beginning to settle into life as Year 5’s. We have had great fun creating crazy self-portraits using photographs and sharing our interests with each other and have elected our school councillor – Grace - who we know will do a fantastic job at representing our views and ideas at the council meetings.

In literacy we have been reading ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell and have written dramatic suspense scenes and powerful descriptive stories. We have also written our own instructions on training dragons and become dragon experts by writing reports on dragon’s habitats, appearance and hunting techniques.
Connected to our theme of dragons and the Vikings, we have begun creating our very own Viking longship figureheads which I’m sure will be extremely terrifying once they are finished!

In P.E we have really enjoyed going swimming and it was lovely to hear the coaches say how much progress the children have made since their last sessions in Year 4.

In numeracy we have been learning about place value, negative numbers and fractions and revising our times-tables in preparation for all the cool maths we will be doing throughout the year. 

Finally, we have had our first trip out of school to RBSC for a Modern Foreign Languages event. The children enjoyed a continental style breakfast before joining other schools in a carousel of activities for four different languages.
