5M Half Term Home Learning

Year 5M half term Home Learning. Due in Monday 30th October 2017

Your Home Learning over the half term break is linked to our literacy work. Your challenge is to further develop your sea creatures in a different way from our non-chronological reports.

Some artistic ideas may include: A detailed drawing, painting, model or digital version of your sea creature.

You could also write a short story or newspaper report about your sea creature in preparation for next half term.

In addition to this task, I am expecting you all to continue reading regularly at home and practising your times tables as well as logging in to Bug Club and Mathletics as often as possible.

Educational visit to Creekside Discovery Centre

On Thursday, we enjoyed a fabulous to trip Creekside to learn more about Deptford Creek as part of our investigation into rivers. Here are some photos of our experience.

Deptford Creek was once located next to an abattoir and the workers had no problem disposing of animal carcasses in there.

Educational Visit to Centre of the Cell

Yesterday we visited the Centre of the Cell in Whitechapel and did lots of learning about the human body. We were trapped inside the nucleus, playing lots of interactive games that taught us about the digestive system, cells and major organs.

We got to look at real human organs that had been donated to scientific research.

We left the visit feeling very inspired and with lots of questions!

Self Portraits

Our new topic in Art is self portraits. We started last week with a very fun activity!

We started by folding a piece of paper in to quarters. In the first quarter we had to draw a self-portrait as quickly as possible. In the second we had to do it with the wrong hand. For example, Reece (who is left handed) had to use his right hand! In the third box we had to close our eyes! We did a lot of giggling when we opened our eyes and saw what we had produced. For the final box, we had to draw a self-portrait without our pencil leaving the page.
