Our Art border for this page was inspired by Viking shields.
This week Sycamore class have been researching astronauts to create their own fact files, we have looked at their childhood, journey to becoming an astronaut and what they have achieved in their life time. Continuing with our topic on Earth and Space, we had a really fun afternoon measuring the distance of each planet from the Sun, we used toilet paper to show this! The children created brilliant instructions on how to make a Viking Longship and these have all gone on our new display (make sure you take a look at parent's evening!). We have started our work on fractions, looking at equivalent fractions and using common multiples to simplify. The children worked so hard and persevered with all the challenges, they should be very proud. Our word of the week has been 'equal' and Year 5 especially displayed this whilst working in groups to find key features of biographies, they worked together and valued each others ideas and opinions.
