5C Autumn 2 week 1
Autumn 2 Week 1
After a much deserved rest, the children have all been working hard during their first week back in 5C. Here is an outline of some of our learning this week.
We have been looking closely at the sacrament of marriage in the Catholic church and how it differs from a civil wedding ceremony. The children have thoughtfully created booklets about what happens in a Catholic wedding and explaining what the significant symbols and signs within the Catholic wedding service are. They have also enjoyed writing their own quiz questions about a Catholic wedding. Can you ask your parent one of your quiz questions?!
We are reading an interactive e-book to find out the varied ways that people have had fun throughout history and throughout the world. We have made predictions and scanned and summarised the information we have read.
We have been starting some further work on fractions. The children have been learning how to spot equivalent fractions as well as ordering fractions with the same and different denominators. Have a go at this game called Fractions Frenzy with a suggested difficulty level of easy:
We have been starting work on our class assembly, which will focus on anti-bullying and take place during anti-bullying week. We have been discussing ways to include those who may look different from us and reading and discussing extracts from the book Wonder where this is one of central themes.
We have started out new topic of volcanoes in another enquiry based unit. We are considering a case study about a family living in Greenland and the issues they face living in a volcanic region.
Enjoy a restful weekend after all of your hard work!
