Quad Kids trials by Mode

Year 5 Physical Education (P.E)

 This week commencing the 15th of May 2017, year 5 have been doing Quad Kids trials, which is where you have to do a series of sports such as: Running long distance (6 laps of the field) Throwing, Jumping and Sprinting. We had it split into two different categories which were girls and boys and from there we had separate activities. From the girls’ race in long distance Erin B won the race, which was very much expected. In jumping I won it, which was a surprise! Also in sprinting I won as well – you never know what you could do if you aspire to be the best you can be!

Literacy

Instructions 

This week in year 5, we have been learning about instruction writing. We started by looking at our book: ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cottrell Boyce.  It is a very interesting book and we looked at a guide for ‘How to talk to your teen’ and since then we have been making up our own rules and guidelines for the above. So far in Literacy, we have made our front cover and the start for our booklet; after all, finding ways to talk to a teenager is entertaining!

Albany Visit.

Year 5 were visited by The Albany School. We were in groups and we had a pupil from Albany to help us. We all had to imagine that an asteroid was hitting earth in five days and we had to make a rocket.

Our first task was to make a tower out of paper, paper clips, elastic bands and cello tape. This was to house everybody that came to the planet.

Next we designed a flag for our planet. We made them bright and used different designs. We drew what we liked. Some people drew horses, footballs or even themselves!

The last and most fun activity was to make spacesuits. We used plastic bags, tin foil and cello tape. Then we made a two minute advert for our planet and we had to model our space suits. We had great fun!

Computing

In the computing lessons this week we investigated a n app called Switch and Glitch. It is a coding game. We had to make the robot get to the finish line by clicking arrows to send it in the right direction. The robot is in a maze and has to reach the finish line. IF you go the wrong way the robot shakes his head.

I think it was a cool game and other children would enjoy it

Earth and Space by Chloe

 

Picture1

In year five we have recently been learning about Earth and Space.  In our topic lesson we have made The Solar System out of blocks to represent what we know about how the planets  orbit the Sun. We had  to work as tables to do it.

We have also been learning about how and when the Sun rises depending on the seasons in various months. We can now tell the planets in order with a method our teacher has taught us.

Guru Nanak

Picture1

Guru Nanak is the first Guru Nanak and the founder of Sikhism .

Guru Nanak has a turban on because Sikhs never cut their hair or beards because they believe that when they die God is going to cut it for them.

The light that appears behind Guru Nanak represents that God is with him . His eyes are half closed as he is in a deep meditation and has found peace and respects Gods presence.

Guru Nanak is sitting with his legs crossed so he can be relaxed and can take in the world and observe God !
