Welcome to our Class 5 page

Class 5 LOVE to collect information! Today Louie, Jack, Archie and Lucas H have been researching some 'Strange But True' animal facts. Read the scrolling text below to find out what they have discovered. 

Chimpanzees and orangutans have fingerprints that are very similar to human fingerprints. In 1975 Police in London began to collect fingerprints from the chimpanzees and orangutans at the local zoo... Snails have THOUSANDS of teeth... frogs can't vomit... Mosquitos cause 725, 000 deaths a year... Bulls don't actually chase red - they are colour blind! ... 1.8 million people have died after being bitten by venomous snakes... elephants can't jump!

What we are doing in Class

We are working really hard to smash our writing targets and are all striving to remember our "Non-negotiables" in our writing and produce "perfect presentation". Children who do their very best presentation and editing with their work all week receive a "Purple Pro" Certificate. 

We are Loving our new reading VIPERS work and are proud to receive reading  VIPERS stickers when we  impress our teachers with our understanding.  (See English page for what VIPERS stands for.)

In our RE Unit " Special Journeys", we practiced a mindfulness meditation,  to a special place where we might feel calm or relaxed then made charcoal pictures of our imaginary places.

Year 5 class blog 

Class 5 are loving our book "The Mousehole cat" and can't wait for the next installment at the beginning of our English lessons. We are writing  newspaper  reports about the storm at sea and using "VIPERS" (see English page) to understand the complex metaphors in the story! (WOW!)
We are learning about life cycles in science and have been acting out the human life cycle with much hilarity!

Next week we will be measuring and graphing the heights of children at different ages throughout the school and planting some sunflowers to study their growth requirements.
In maths we are smashing fractions and can't believe how much cake the teachers seem to eat in the maths problems we're working on!
