Friday 12th February 2021
 

Antarctica has continued to provide a range of cross-curricular learning activities for the children in Year 5.

In topic, the children showed great interest and passion when learning about the threats that Antarctica faces due to global warming. Having spent time researching Antarctic animals and how they adapt to living in their environment, the children drew and painted animals in art. It was great to see the detailed artwork that was produced, both online and in the classroom.

In English, the children have come to the end of their book, Shackleton’s Journey. They wrote excellent newspaper reports in role as the crew members who were returning from Antarctica, giving lots of information about the dangers and setbacks they faced in the frozen continent. We were really impressed with how hard the children worked on these reports and their excellent use of direct and indirect speech.

Although the children are sad to have finished Shackleton’s Journey, they are excited to move onto our next book, Treason, which links to our next topic, The Tudors.

In maths we have been doing fractions. Although fractions can be challenging, the children have shown incredible levels of perseverance and so, have shown great progression.

The children have also really enjoyed their experiments in science, including making crystals. The inquisitive nature that the children have displayed and the scientific questions that they have asked have both been excellent. We have been extremely impressed with the level of engagement that the children have continued to demonstrate both in the classroom and online this week, and we hope they have a well-deserved, restful half term. ‚Äč
