Maple class exploring why the Sun was red!

We went outside after lunch to look at the red sun. Jamie was so pleased that I took a photo for evidence! Tia said ‘is this super rare? Are we lucky to see it?’ Ciaran said ‘it must be Alien graffiti artists, they’ve spray painted the sky red!!’ We then produced some brilliant and innovative pieces of writing, describing our theories.

No Pens Day

Year 5 exploring how early humans created number systems using sticks, stones and shells.

Elder Class 

We started the day by seeing if we could describe a creature without writing about it or using language. We “performed” our creatures to the rest of the class who were then able to describe the creature they had seen. In maths, we created Mayan calculations. The Mayans used twigs and stones to represent numbers. Can you work out the calculation in the picture?

During the afternoon, we continued thinking about prehistory in our topic work and were challenged to build a model of Stonehenge from things we had found outside!
