WELCOME TO LANDACRE CLASS
Here we will keep you updated with all the things that we have been up to, both in and out of class!
In Science this week we were given some "Alien Soup". Using our knowledge of properties of materials, we had to separate the ingredients. Some people used magnets, some sieves, some tried paper towels as filters and some have been left on the windowsill to evaporate the water. It was a real challenge to get all the materials into their individual substances and we had to really work as a team.
We have been busy this week with lots going on in and out of class. Many of our children took part in P.E. events on Friday and in class we have been investigating water quality in Science and beginning to learn to play the violin in Music.
This week in Landacre class we have had a cricket coach in to visit us and been inventing gadgets for SpyFox from Lego to kick off our Inventions topic.
Art and DT
This week has been busy in Landacre class! We have spent some of the week drawing pictures of a battlefield using charcoal and experimenting with different effects. We have also spent some time researching Zeppelins and begun making our own.
We love reading!
During our time in Year 5, we have been lucky enough to have more reading books in our classroom (with more to come after Christmas) and now it is so quiet during reading time!
What an amazing effort Landacre class made with their costumes!
We had a fun-packed day, which started with writing very spooky stories and ended with lots of Art and Science fun. Please view our gallery to see what we have been up to!
After our visit to the war memorial, and linked to our work in Literacy, we got into character as a soldier in war and wrote letters home to our loved ones. Mrs Gardner was so impressed by the emotion we put across and the improvement in the structure of our sentences. Here are just a few examples.
This is the video that is inspiring our work in literacy at the moment and we will be using over the next 3 or 4 weeks.
