Year 5 - September 2016
Visit from Helen Sharp
Children were privileged to have Helen Sharp present a session on gravity and its effect on humans. She delved into how gravity was discovered and how it works in our universe. Children thoroughly enjoyed the session, which sparked many thoughtful questions.
Children participated in a child protection sports workshop, which involved self-defence.
Maths this week featured interpreting negative numbers in context. Children were practising this skill by playing ‘Arctic Expedition’, a board game that featured a range of questions involving negative numbers and applying their knowledge of them. Many children expressed interest in playing again, as they enjoyed it so much!
