Here's another easy, fun and educational nature activity! πŸŒΏπŸ’š

This is a great way to explore shapes while interacting with nature, building spatial awareness and fine motor skills! For this easy activity, all you need are sticks and rubber bands.

First, create 2D shapes with your sticks. How many shapes can you make? What are they called? Next, make flat 3D shapes. Then, challenge yourself to make 3D models of each shape using rubber bands to connect your sticks. Finally, use your imagination to transform your models into something new (tiny houses, space ships, boats, etc.)!

Week 1 (week beginning 23rd March 2020)

The Great Wave of Plastic. Year 5 were inspired by The Great Wave off Kanagawa to create their own artwork. We have been learning about renewable energy and the amount of pollution in our seas. We sketched and painted in collaboration to produce a striking image of a wave of plastic in the ocean. Our focus was on proportion, colour mixing and brush strokes.

Maths Investigation - As part of our maths lessons we took part in an investigation competition sponsored by explore learning and the National history museum. We worked in pairs to complete calculations, which solved clues, that in turn helped us navigate the shortest and longest routes through the museum. Two specialist maths teachers also visited to help us in completing our work.

Forces - Air resistance. We have been studying forces in our science lessons. We investigated the effects of air resistance and designed our own parachutes. We tested which design produced the slowest decent and evaluated our findings.

As part of our recent RE topic on Islam we visited Palmers Green Mosque. We saw a real copy of the Qur'an, and learnt about the significant features of the mosque. An Imam also showed us Arabic writing and explained how it is read from left to right. Geometric art is used to decorate the mosque. Muslims also pray 5 times a day.

In financial literacy lessons we had two people from Metro Bank visit us. We completed a MoneyZone booklet and then also had the opportunity to visit the bank. They showed us many safety deposit boxes and we learnt about savings, interest and budgeting.

Saxophone Concert - We have been learning a number of songs and developing our ability to read music. It was great fun to show our parents our newly learnt skills.

Forest School - This term we have been going to the forest to extend our learning in science and explore the world around us.
