Stars of the Week: All of Class 5
Well done to all of Class 5 for stepping up this week. All of the buddies have worked really hard to keep the school running without Class 6. I know that you will all make fantastic Year 6s next year!
In science this week, we have looked at life-cycles of insects and amphibians. We have learned how they change through metamorphosis, as opposed to just growing up!

Class 5 have had assessments this week and persevered to do their best. Well done Class 5!
In DT, Class 5 were given a task to make a structure that would hold a platform 10cm from the table. However, all they could use was paper and masking tape! All of the children did a fantastic job as teams and managed to make structures that would hold the platform and weights on top of it! One group managed to hold 12kg on top of their structure! As a class, we realised that you need to make sure you have a wide base, a low centre of gravity and lots of triangles (as that is the strongest shape).

This week, Class 5 have been writing out The Highwayman as a story as opposed to a poem. They were all challenged with showing and not telling in their work. All of Class 5 stepped up to this challenge and wrote some beautiful descriptions. They all made sure that they used lots of figurative language to allow the reader to see what they want them to see.
In Maths, Class 5 have worked really hard with decimals. They are all able to see the connection between fractions and decimals and can convert one to the other.
