In art this term, we are investigating landscapes and have been investigating the wonderful work of L.S. Lowry. Have you heard the song, Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs by Brian and Michael? It was inspired by the life and work of Lowry.
Mrs Mansell was impressed with the level of detail we managed to include in our preparatory sketches.
Atlantic Class have been working very hard on creating a book review folder for our Year 5 library. Make sure you check it out if you are stuck for a good book recommendation.
Here is a wonderful example written by Edward.
Now Press Play was brilliant fun this week and luckily, the weather stayed dry enough for us to be able to enjoy our Viking Raid story outside. Everyone in Atlantic Class impressed Mrs Mansell with their superb acting skills and everyone ended the day moving up on our chart. We clearly have some Oscar worthy actors in Atlantic Class this year.
In Science this week, we have investigated air resistance. We explored whether a parachute with a larger canopy would fall to earth more slowly than a parachute with a smaller canopy. We discovered the importance of repeat testing and learned how to find the mean average of a set of results.
Everyone in Atlantic Class has been working super hard this week so we really did enjoy Friday afternoon, when we applied some of our ideas about creation to produce some art work.
We’ve also created some mini me figures to represent ourselves as Vikings. Do we look really fearsome?
This week in Atlantic Class, we have been using our maths skills everywhere.
We have been revising how to round numbers to different amounts and in science, we have been learning how to use force meters rounding up or down to the nearest increment.
In other news we have also been electing our pupil councillors. It was wonderful to see so many members of Atlantic Class keen to put themselves forward. I was so impressed by how thoughtful the speeches were in terms of how passionate the candidates were about really important issues such as: environmental responsibility; litter and pupil safety. Be sure to check back next week to find out who has been elected.
Welcome Atlantic Class
It was just wonderful to welcome you all back to Leigh North Street This Week.
We have had a wonderful few days getting to know each other, catching up on all our news and getting excited about all of the learning adventures we have planned for the days and weeks ahead. We have been so impressed with how quickly you have all settled and how grown up and independent you have been in learning all our new routines so quickly. What a great start Atlantic.
