Friday 12th October

This week, we have continued to measure and draw angles with protractors to the nearest degrees along with finding the perimeter and area of compound and irregular shapes.

We all enjoyed our trip to the Warner Bros. studios and had a fantastic day handling real props used on the sets of all of the Harry Potter films as well as fighting the dark Death Eaters on Hogwarts Bridge. We loved seeing the Hogwarts Express on Platform 9 3/4 and even managed to enjoy the Forbidden Forest.

We continued to look at reversible and irreversible changes in science and carried on improving our tactical knowledge in hockey.

Friday 5th October

This week, we have explored angles looking at the different types of angles, measuring angles correctly with a protractor and drawing angles to the nearest degree. In English, we have completed our diary as Harry Potter as he enters Diagon Alley. We have also re-drafted our work to ensure it includes highly effective vocabulary and emotive language to show Harry’s feelings and thoughts at different stages of the day. In science we have looked at scientific vocabulary related to dissolving, including understanding the difference between soluble and insoluble materials. In P.E. we have continued to improve our hockey skills and tactical knowledge by playing 3 vs 3 matches. We have had a huge push on presentation and handwriting this week ensuring we are achieving our ‘Gold Standard’ consistently.

WELCOME TO Y5D

This term in Y5D, we are entering a world of magic!

We will be creating a diary extract as Harry Potter as he walks through, in amazement, down the mystical yet very strange ‘Diagon Alley’. This week we have been analysing the character of Dudley – drawing on his appearance, actions and speech with the story.
