It has been a busy term for us in fifth class revising work completed in fourth class and moving on with the year. We have covered a variety of interesting topics including the digestive system, the skeleton and how earthquakes and tsunamis work. We also learnt about a variety of artists in Banksy and Caravaggio.
In art class we designed and created our own individual volcanoes and created an explosion using baking powder, red colouring dye and vinegar.
We also had the opportunity to visit the Lifetime Lab and work on a variety of Maths tasks and puzzles which were challenging and enjoyable to solve.
Currently we are working on projects based on endangered species.
Fifth class have been doing great work over the past number of weeks. The girls learned all about Type 1 diabetes as part of our explanatory genre in English. They designed and presented leaflets to the class based on the information gleaned. They have also been studying the characters in their novel ‘Matilda’ and using Venn diagrams to compare and contrast these. Furthermore, in groups they had to describe a character using as many adjectives as possible. Leading up to St Patricks Day the girls constructed leprechaun traps in Art class. They worked extremely well in groups and produced great work as seen below.
