Our Anglo Saxon visitor.
On Thursday 26th October, Year 5 were treated to a visit from Anglo Saxon expert, Terry Briody. He brought with him an amazing selection of replica armour, weapons and jewellery. In the morning session, 5M created their own weapons and then 5C spent the afternoon making some fabulous jewellery.
Welcome to 5C!
Welcome back to school. It feels like the summer holidays are a distant memory now! Here are a few reminders to help you settle into the new Year 5 routine.
Our WOW starter!
As part of our "A Kingdom United" topic, Year 5 had a visit from Leyland Morris Men. What fun we had! We had a try at 2 dances. One dance was a small team dance where we had to work in groups of 6. We were given wooden sticks which we had to knock together in a pattern.
The second dance was in a ring and we had to count our steps then do a kick with our left leg. The music got faster and faster!
The Leyland Morris Men all commented on how polite, enthusiastic and happy our children are. We are very proud!
Angles or Angels?
In 5C, we are going angles crazy! We are learning how to use a protractor to measure angles up to 180 degrees. We know that a 90 degree angle is a right angle, an angle less than 90 degrees is an acute angle and an angle bigger than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees is an obtuse angle.
Can you remember the name of an angle which is more than 180 degrees?
Take a look at this website and learn how to measure angles.
