[Year 5] Earth and Space

In Year 5 we have been learning all about Earth and Space. This week we looked at how planets orbit, rotate and move in the Solar System and around the Sun. We discussed the different theories that people have had throughout history on how the planets move and created our own drama, showing how people’s beliefs have changed from the Geocentric (Earth-centred) model, to the Heliocentric (Sun-centred) model.

[5RD] Plan a Holiday to Spain

We worked in mixed ability groups to plan a holiday to Spain. We had to ask Miss. Denson for the correct information and use the iPads to help us work out the final cost. We couldn’t believe how many different things we had to factor in!

[5RD] Film Narrative

In year 5 we have been looking at film narrative in our Literacy lessons. We worked in mixed groups to tell stories without any words through drama.

Peter Dickinson’s Problem Solving and Reasoning Club

Children from St. Cecilia’s joined some of our Year 5 children to attend Peter Dickinson’s Problem Solving and Reasoning Club. The children spent the afternoon being challenged to improve their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills by exploring a range of mathematical problems. There are seven sessions altogether and the children are loving it!!!
