We have had a lovely week learning about multi-step problems in maths. To start the week, we completed a detective mission in which we had to crack the code using our mathematical skills.
We have also been writing a diary about some of Luke's encounters in 'The Witches'.
In Maths, this week, we have been looking at place value. To do so, we set up a place value grid on the floor and became representations of digits.
In English, we have been writing guides on 'how to spot a witch' based on our text 'The Witches' by Roald Dahl.
We have been learning about Charles Darwin in Science and Mexican deserts in Encompass.
This week we were fortunate enough to attend 'Game on' workshops. The workshops taught us about race, religion and heritage and we discussed how we can show tolerance and respect to everyone.
In week 1 we had lots of lovely discussions about Year 5 expectations and demonstrating Waterside values. We discussed how we wanted our classroom to feel and came up with some rules together.
We also had our first 'wow day' on our theme of Mexican fiesta. We attended a dance and music workshop, tried Mexican food and came up with our own recipes.
