We have had a really busy and successful day in 5B today. We started the day with a very relaxing art lesson. Using the grid method, we developed our observational drawing skills to help with proportion and scale.
Everyone ended up with their art on the ‘wonderful work’ washing line. It was too hard just to choose some!
Next we went out to the playground to play a game which helped us understand how to find a fraction of an amount. Everyone worked really well in their teams.
We then came back inside to work through some fraction word problems. It was great to see everyone sharing their thinking and strategies with growing confidence.
In the afternoon we carried on our poetry work. We have been studying ‘From a Railway Carriage’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. Today the class worked in groups to learn a section of the poem, adding expression and actions and then we performed it as a class. Everyone enjoyed watching it back on the iPad after.
