Walking the line…

Today in PE we had a go on a slack line to get an idea of what it would be like for Philippe Petit to two walk between the two towers. We’re using The Man Who Walked Between the Towers as inspiration for literacy this week. Check out the photos below of our experience – not quite as dangerous perhaps!

Weekly round up

We’ve had an action packed week in 5RG, and could all do with a well earned rest over the weekend!

In maths we started decimals, looking at place value and rounding.

In literacy we started our new book – The Man Who Walked Between The Towers. We learned facts about the Twin Towers in New York and what happened to them, and wrote our own facts in our writing books.

In art we finished our portraits, which will be exhibited in school soon!

In project we started making our own pharaoh masks, which will be decorating our classroom by the end of next week.

 

What a debate! 

On Monday we were lucky enough to be joined by two fantastic mentors from Debate Mate, and spent the whole day learning to debate. We had a fantastic day and all took away some valuable skills.

What was your favourite part of the day? What do you think is the most useful and interesting thing you learned?

All about Ancient Egypt

This week in 5RG we went on a fantastic trip to the British Museum, where we had to undertake a number of investigations in the Ancient Egypt exhibits.

Then on Thursday we mixed up with the other year five classes and did three project lessons, one with each teacher. We learned why and how the pyramids were made, what it takes to mummify a body and how to write in hieroglyphics.

Next week we’ll be starting to make our own pharo masks!
