We began the day with an opportunity to read for enjoyment. We understand the importance of Guided Reading sessions, but we also love it when we can read our own choice of book. In English, we worked collaboratively to discuss and evaluate the poems that were referenced in the text, ‘Love that Dog’. It’s easy to say if we like something or not but explaining why, or why not, is much trickier – this was the focus of this lesson. A general feeling in the class was that we tend to like rhyming poems more as they, “Roll off your tongue more easily”.
In Maths, we were doing work on measure. We were being taught to convert between different units of measure; for example, 3.7m is equal to 370cm. You would work this out by multiplying 3.7 by 100 because 1m = 100cm. This afternoon we did African drumming and PSHE.
In PSHE, we were discussing our rights and responsibilities when playing an online game – something that we all need to be completely aware of.
All Year 5 classes visited Penge this week to look at the amazing and vibrant collection of street art there. This is part of their topic ‘Painting on Walls’. On Friday afternoon Year 5 are Zooming the man who is in charge of organising all the street art in Penge – such an amazing opportunity. They have come up with some questions that they are going to ask him.
