5th Grade News for the Parents by the Students!
The Art Show
On Friday the 11th December 2015, 5C and 5D went to the Galli Theatre. We had a workshop there and we looked at the play, Hänsel und Gretel. We went on the trip because of our Hänsel und Gretel" challenge that we have done in the library. All of this was organised by Ms.Douglas. IT WAS FUN!!!!!!!!!!

The Wishing Tree
On the 7th December our school started a project named The Wishing Tree. On the Wishing Tree refugees could write their wishes down for things that they desperately need, e.g. shaving cream, shampoo, deodorant, BVG tickets etc. Kids and adults could pick some wishes and fulfill them.
Adrian and Ilian
On the 9th December there was a bake sale at school. We all would like to say a big thank you to all the people that helped. On that day we earned and donated €276.50 for refugees' wishes from the school Wishing Tree. The money will be used for buying useful things like, BVG tickets, washing powder, etc..

Ending our Unit
The unit, "who we are" has come to a end!
Our end unit assessment was our puberty book.The puberty book explained and advised on the changes children will go through in puberty. Some of the subjects that we wrote about were, friendships, emotions, acne, periods, wet dream, etc. We also put helpful information about the events that will happen and what you should do when puberty starts.
Starting our new unit
Last week we were introduced to our new unit: How We Express Ourselves.
We have been working in our pre assessment. We were asking ourselves: What is Art?
In our pre-assesment we had a silent discussion about some pictures. We wrote our thoughts on big piece of paper. Everyone had different opinions which led to arguments, but in silence of course! Also we found out that a skill can also be classified as an art. As everyone knows there is also the creative art. Creative can also be split into sections such as visual art and performance art.
As yet, we have not been introduced to our actual central idea, so we are curious to find out more!
What do you think?
Vor zwei Wochen war die School Nurse bei der Klasse 5C und 5D. Sie hat unsere Fragen über die Pubertät beantwortet. Wir haben viel gelernt! Außerdem hatten wir in der darauffolgenden Woche ein Pubertäts Assessment. Dann haben wir noch pubertäts gedichte geschrieben.
Für unsere neue unit haben wir kunst mind maps gestaltet.
Aber so viel wissen wir noch nicht darüber deswegen sind wir neugierig mehr raus zu finden.
Two weeks ago the school nurse visited 5c and 5d. She answered our questions about puberty. We learnt a lot! We did a puberty assessment in the following week. We also wrote puberty poems.
For our new unit, we created mind maps on our new unit. But since we don't know a lot about it yet we are excited to find out and learn more about our new unit on art!

In musical we worked on the art show for a few weeks, because we needed to introduce the Art Show with some of our musical songs. But we are back to practicing our normal production. We got all of our roles and are very pleased with them. Our musical is SHAKESPEARE ROCKS, by Musicline Productions. We have had lots of fun practicing our musical, even though it has been very difficult to pay attention!

5C Advent Callenge
Every morning we have an Advent challenge. For example one time we named all of Santa's reindeer. 5 min before school finishes we have another Advent challenge that we need to do at home!!! For example we once did, how many minutes have we been alive? We have also done lots of other crazy fun stuff! Each day, a child in our class also gets picked to have a chocolate from our advent calendar.
