Week 4 Monday 1st - Friday 5th February
Our new creative writing club began this week led by Grade 9 High School Students. This is an amazing opportunity for our Grade 5 children. The first session was a big success and everyone came away with a smile on their face!
Writers of the Week - Congratulations!
Sam 5CDo - Overall winner!
We published our work in preparation for the exit point.
This week we have introduction of our new unit of volume. We reflected on terms that have been taught before, such as cube and cuboid. We built a few solids with unit cubes and stated if they were a cube or cuboid by solving its volume capacity and noticing significant characteristics. We plotted our understanding on 1 cubic centimeter isometric grids by drawing cuboids and cubes of a variety of volume. In this unit we were introduced the the formula of Length x breath x height to solve problems involving volume.
We used our understanding and excellence to great effect as we have whizzed through this unit. At the start of next half term, we will refocus our undertanding and knowledge to put our skills to the test in our end of unit quiz. Please look out for these and cheer us on as we progress through our tests and quizzes.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were hectic days and the oven barely had a break, with all classes in the IPC lab making their delicious goodies. The children all showed how much they had learnt over the unit by following their own recipes independently. They are now competent in kneading, timing and dare we say it - tidying up!
The exit point was a great success, and we thank you for taking the time to come and visit. The children were delighted in their finished products and they all enjoyed tasting time!
