Space Food Tasting!

Date: 18th May 2021 @ 10:22am

We have had a very exciting morning here in 5HW!

As part of our Nutrition unit of work in D&T, we have been finding out about how astronuats eat a balanced diet whilst living on the International Space Station (since we are studying Space in Science!). As part of that, we have tasted freeze-dried food this morning, which is the type of food the astronauts would have eaten on the first space missions in the 1960s!

We have tried 5 foods:

Tortilla

Banana

Cinnamon Apple Wedges (the BIG favourite!)

Strawberry

Neopolitan Ice Cream

 

Have a look at our photos - can you work out which food is which on the plate?

Telling the time

Date: 17th May 2021 @ 11:01pm

Last week we have been learning how to tell the time to o'clock and half past times. We used our own analogue clocks to tell the time and then we read times and drawed the minute and hour hands correctly on a blank clock. 

We discussed how telling the time was an important skill that will help us all the time. We also looked at lots of different images of clocks so we had an understanding that clocks can look very different. 

 

Why not try this game and continue to do some learning at home... Click on the top sections where it says analogue to analogue and o'clock/half past times.

Measuring Sunflowers

Date: 17th May 2021 @ 10:54pm

Our CC topic this half term is called 'How does the garden grow?' We have learnt lots of facts and vocabulary linked to plants, flowers and trees. We started the half term by planting some sunflower seeds and over the last few weeks we have been looking after out plants and measured how tall the plant is growing. We used our maths skills to measure our sunflowers using a ruler and record how tall they have grown. Next week we are hoping to take them home and continue to look after them until they have grown into beautiful sunflowers.

Snail and the Whale - what’s in the sack?

Date: 14th May 2021 @ 3:52pm

At the start of the week we discovered something huge in the playground. It was immense and there was a speech bubble coming out of its’ mouth. Take a look at the videos to see our colossal discovery, what had been sent to us and the writing and pictures we made after. Books are so exciting, we love to learn about stories. 

Snail Challenge

Date: 14th May 2021 @ 3:37pm

Today we found out about where snails live 🐌.

”The fox is going to try to eat the snail. He’s going to crunch it all up.” Avaya

“Snails need a place to hide so it’s safe.” Goodness

“Our snail looks like Gary from Spongebob”, said Avaya.

The children decided what they were going to make and how they would make it. Some decided to build models, others drew and then some used resources from the creative area. We love how creative our children are.

 

 

Super Snail Friday Challenge

Date: 14th May 2021 @ 2:46pm

Today we had a great day learning all about snails.

Did you know ...?

Snails leave a silvery trail - Priya

Snails like to eat leaves - Ava

Snails also like to live in a bit of rain and damp.

Snails live under rocks - Freya

They live in the leaves - Corey

A snail has one strong leg - Olivia

 

Today we spent lots of time in our classroom making and creating snails and their habitats. Take a look at the pictures to see what we've been doing. I wonder if you will see any snails this weekend on your rainy walks.

 

Come On, Daisy!

Date: 14th May 2021 @ 1:44pm

This week in nursery, we discovered a box in the classroom. It was labelled with pictures and captions, we talked about what each of these words mean and thought about what might be inside the box. Suddenly, something made a noise! It was Daisy Duck! She had left a letter for us to read! We introduced ourselves, writing our names and drawing pictures for Daisy. Take a look at the video below to see all of our learning from this week!

 

 

Eid Mubarak

Date: 13th May 2021 @ 10:10am

Today lots of our friends are celebrating Eid

We watched a video and we listened to one of our friends tell us how she celebrates Eid. "We like to celebrate Eid. I help my mummy make some yummy food. My Mummy and my Daddy bring me new clothes. I will wear a yellow dress with little flowers on it. We hug everyone and say 'Eid Mubarak' "

Watch the video here:

We have been creating pictures, drawing henna patterns on hands, dancing and celebrating by having a party with the cake! Have a great Eid everybody.

Footprint

Date: 13th May 2021 @ 9:17am

We had a secret vistor in the classroom this week. Who could it be?

Footprint

Date: 12th May 2021 @ 7:19pm

On Monday, we discovered this in our classroom. We aren't positive what it is or who has left it but we do have a main suspect. We have started to read a new book called The Abominables to see if we can discover who it might belong to.

Looking at sounds

Date: 11th May 2021 @ 2:22pm

We have been practising all of the phonemes we know so that we can remember them quickly when we need to  use them in our reading and writing.

How do astronauts brush their teeth in space?

Date: 6th May 2021 @ 12:54pm

Some of our Y5 children have been investigating how astronauts brush their teeth in space. We found it was not easy ! We used third person singular to write up our instructions.

Marvellous Measuring!

Date: 29th Apr 2021 @ 9:13am

Yesterday in maths, year 4 practiced their measuring skills! We estimated which jug had the most liquid in, and were very surprised when we discovered that they all held the same amount.

Reading measuring jugs, scales and rulers has been a challenge this week - if your grown ups use any of this equipment at home, try to practice by reading the different amounts.

Telling the time

We have been learning the language of time this week including telling the time. Do you know the time on this bingo card?

 

Victorian simple past and present tense

Date: 28th Apr 2021 @ 8:49am

Last week, Year 2 learnt about how to identify the difference between simple past and present tense. Do you know which type of word to look out for? (Hint - each one is underlined!)

We've raised....

Date: 27th Apr 2021 @ 8:51am

Last half term, we created two pieces of amazing artwork inspired by two Greek artists - Nikolas Georgoudakis and Mike Karolos. We framed our chosen piece and were so proud of them. As part of our study, we explored issues facing modern Greece today, including the fact that many refugees arrive in Greece in search of safety. We were very moved by the CBBC news reports we watched, and wanted to do something to help. A charity called Refugee Action supports refugees in Manchester, so we decided to sell our artwork in order to make a donation to this charity. 

Our final total has come in today, and we have raised…

£86!

We're so pleased! Thank you to all our parents and carers who supported us in our fundraising mission!

Easter Creations

Date: 1st Apr 2021 @ 12:43pm

Wow - what a creative class 5HW are! 

There were so many wonderful entries for our Easter competition, it was incredibly hard to choose the two winners for most creative and most independent. 

After much deliberation, our two winners are:

Alexander and Felix!

Well done to both of you, and to everyone who entered.

Have a look at the attached photos to see what was made!

Happy Easter and safe holidays !

Date: 1st Apr 2021 @ 10:04am

Today is our final day of our spring term.

We have been so impressed with all your hard work this term and can't wait to see you again in the summer term.

We hope you and your family have a safe and restful holiday and we will see you again on Monday 19th April.

Happy Easter !

Mrs Harriott and Mrs Glover

 

5HW's Amazing Art Work!

Date: 29th Mar 2021 @ 2:56pm

We have created some amazing art work this half term, inspired by two Greek artists: Nikolas Georgoudakis and Mike Karolos. We have chosen our favourite piece and framed it; click on the link to see a mini tour of the art - don't they look beautiful!

https://youtu.be/TigIkpHENVY

As part of our study of Greece this half term, we have explored how Greece has received many refugees who are unable to live in their own countries safely. We have also discussed how some people are seeking safety in the UK and, more specifically, Manchester – we thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for us to show our support and care to our community by giving a donation to Refugee Action, a charity which helps refugees build safe and hopeful lives in Manchester. We'll let you know how much we manage to raise!
