With the blog finally working for me I can post again - another Monday edition. This week was largely centred around assessments; two maths assessments got the ball rolling and today the children have completed their reading assessment.
In English, the children have continued their haiku work and have created their own extreme weather poems. The artwork you can see on this post was made to compliment their haikus, with each child sketching their designing and then colouring their work with pastels in the style of Earth Verse. We think they came out brilliantly and show some interesting techniques and ideas. Any artwork that is not finished (only the completed ones are shown) will be finished throughout the rest of this week.
In maths, we finished our decimals and percentages unit, which many of the children loved, and then tackled the end of unit test. Each child performed excellently and we are all proud of their results - well done everyone!
Friday was Break the Rules Day. The class was alive with laughter and excitement with whoopie cushions, cuddly toys and a range of other contraband! What great fun, and how fitting for the first of April.
All the staff in year 5 would like to thank the class for their efforts and we are all looking forward to the week ahead.
