Some of our sporty Year 5 children travelled to a local competition this week to represent FJS in cross country. The children all did us proud; showing wonderful sportsmanship, resilience, motivation and they achieved some fantastic result.
Well done runners!
When was the last time you tried to fit the world on a sheet of A4? We may be only nine and ten, but with Miguel’s motivation powering our learning, we can conquer the world in a Geography session.
We couldn’t help ourselves, this Geography business just fills us with curiosity and the questions and conversations were fabulously interesting. We found out what all those lines mean and why there are so many zeros!
We worked out that if we start with GB, Africa will be underneath, the Americas to the left and Asia and Oceana to the right. It was only when we tried to draw Europe that we saw how vast Russia is and it was a surprise to many of us that North America wasn’t just USA.
We look forward to more travels in our Atlases (new and updated last summer).
Sometimes it’s difficult to manage all the information you want to communicate in one sentence – that’s where () – – and , , come in handy!
Many of us needed a nod from Miguel when we were tackling this tricky grammar skill. The first surprise was that they all do the same job, in slightly different ways.
It took us some time to work out how to keep a main sentence intact but we got there in the end.
Another sunny afternoon and another fantastic rugby session with Mr Williams.
We built on our dodging and tagging skills from last week – this week we ran with the ball and passed.
Many of us thought we would run faster with the ball, then we realised it was heavier. Some fantastic one-on-one chasing.
Oh, and a super game of sheep and gates to get us warmed up.
Thank you Mr Williams!
What do you call an animal that is half frog and half horse?
In Year 5, we have been reading descriptions of rain forest animals to inspire us to create a mixed up animal for a layer of the rain forest. Has our writing convinced you this animal could (should!) exist?
Come and see our writing display and all the WOW! Writing to be proud of in class.
Proof that decimals are fantastic fun!
Today we played a game which used all our knowledge about tenths and hundredths.
Ask us about how to make decimals higher or lower.
