The MP3 'space cadets' were put through their paces as they strived to show us that they had what it took to be included on our Mission to Mars! They began with a comprehensive warm up led by Major Tom, and then were tested both physically and mentally by the task specific challenges lead by Captain Robyn, Colonel Phill, and General Rosie. The Drill Sergeants; Sokhary, Kimthan, Neath, and Somnang kept the recruits in line. We look forward to learning about the geography of Mars in the upcoming weeks.
This week in literacy Y6 have begun writing poems. We have learnt lots about poetry and have particularly enjoyed reading humorous poems and bringing them to life. We also looked at various types of poetry such as rhyming verses. We even compared rap lyrics and poetry and tried to determine which was which. We are working towards writing space poems, imagining the view of space from a rocket ship in line with our Mission to Mars.
In Y5 we are beginning to look at parts of a whole as well. We completed a treasure hunt using fractions, decimal, and percentages; and worked collaboratively to show our prior learning in the knowledge harvest. Y5 have began ordering fractions in ascending or descending order. We did this with fractions that had the same denominators at first, and then really showed our understanding by repeating it with fractions with different denominators.
