Deng Class Blog

Hello from Deng class and isn’t it great to be back! Our class is named after the Chinese table tennis player and Olympian, Deng Yaping and table tennis is one of the sports we really enjoyed in Year Four and look forward to getting even better at in Year Five.

In English, we’ve started reading ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ and we’ve started to meet some of the amazing characters of this novel. This includes Hamlet, a talking white elephant and walking billboard! We shared our punctuation knowledge by coming up with intetrestingly and ambitiously punctuated slogans that could be written on his flanks!

We’ve been learning about reading and comparing large numbers in Mathematics and we’re all confident now even when we’re working with numbers in the millions! (The trick is knowing that you read a large number in no more than three digit chunks).

We had our first tag rugby session in Games and it was challenging but fun at the same time. To play you need to take your opponents tag off to take possession of the ball and you have to place the ball down on the over players’ half to score a try.

In RE, we reflected on some of Jesus’s words and made a personal response to them and in Geography we located places that were meaningful to us.

We can’t wait till our first PE and Science lessons this afternoon!

Zamperini Class Blog

smiley  Welcome to Zamperini Class Blog.

Our class is named after Louis Zamperini – an Italian American athlete from the 1930s  (yes, that was a long time ago!) He was such a resilient person, surviving really harsh conditions as a prisoner of war and he carried the Olympic torch when he was in his 80s around the town where he was imprisoned.

We’ve had a really busy week here in Year 5. Ava celebrated her birthday on Monday  - 10 years old! Everyone made anonymous birthday cards for each other in class and Ava was the first to choose one.

Today, we’ve had great fun circuit training in mixed groups and were exhausted at the end.   Earlier in the week we had our first tag rugby session.

Did you know that we’re working with numbers up to one million in Maths and used our knowledge in lots of strategy games?

We’ve also been working so hard to get onto our class recognition board and we all had a raffle ticket for excellent learning behaviour.

  We voted democratically for our new school councillors – Eden and Elsie.  Congratulations to them both.

This is just a brief introduction to some of the learning we've done this week, but we havent mentioned all the Geography, Computing, Science and Spanish that we've done too!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.  Best wishes from us all. smiley
