Getting Active in Y5.

Date: 16th Jul 2022 @ 6:45am

On Friday, at Greenhill  it was ‘Get Active’ day, where the children learnt all about why it is important to stay active.

The children wore sports clothing and took part in different sporting tasks. Y5 played rounder's, and did a few sporting challenges based on a long jump, running, and throwing.

We also designed a few poster about keeping fit  and healthy. The money raised from this day will go towards new PE equipment. Well Done  Y5!


This week in pre-school.

We have been busy as the children had a transition visit to the nursery class. All the children did really well during the visit and meeting their new teachers.

We had a class trip to Alexandra park. Family members accompanied the children and we had had a lovely time as we explored. We walked along the woodland trail and heard many birds singing in the trees. In the play area, children used the diggers in the sand area, swung on the swings and used the different apparatus. We had fun feeding the geese and ducks. We would like to say a great big thank you to everyone who came along.

We then went onto look closely at the parts of a flower. We identified the male and female parts of the flower by taking apart the petals to reveal the stamen, and the carpel. The children had a great time dissecting the flower and labelling the parts.

The children learnt a great deal about how the internet can be a safe place if we follow some very simple but important rules.

In Maths this week we recapped what we already know about measurement before moving on to capacity. We have had a brilliant week so far with our maths because we started measuring out different capacities and reading the scales. Then this lead us on to converting milliltres (ml) to litres (l) and vice versa and then we added and subtracted ml and l. The children have had lots of fun and really understood the learning. Super stars!

Working out volume in Y5

Date: 17th Jun 2022 @ 6:21am

This week in Maths, Y5 have been learning about how to work out volume. We started by looking at what volume is and how we can work it out using cubic units. We began with a practical session in which we used cubes to build a variety of simple and complex shapes. We then counted the number of cubes that were used to make the shape in order to work out the volume. We then went on to explored the formula for volume and how we have to multiply three dimensions to get an answer. Surprisingly, Y5 did very well with this. Well done!

Learning in Class 8 16.6.22

Date: 16th Jun 2022 @ 12:36pm

This week we took our Ipads outside to edit our introductions in the sun. We felt it was our best editing lesson so far. This was because we were editing on the IPads rather than written work, editing someone else's writing instead of our own and enjoying the gorgeous weather at the same time. We all want to do this again.
