We had had a visit from the Science Dome. It was absolutely AMAZING! We studied the rings of Saturn, investigated constellations and linked the stars to Greek myths. We even had time for a short roller coaster ride through the Milky Way.
We learnt about the moon phases and its movement around Earth. I hope you’ve noticed the amazing, astonishing alliteration in our Polzeath posts!
We took the classroom outside to explore the link between fractions and decimal numbers.
In the sunshine, we used chalk to draw place value grids and explored what happens when you multiply and divide a decimal number by 10, 100 or 1000.
Fistral and Polzeath paired balances in gymnastics. Exploring patch, point, and counter balances.
Meet the new Polzeath with their class teacher, Mr James and HLTA, Mrs Parry.
Year 5 watched an electronic safety play, which highlighted the important issues of age appropriate internet usage and healthy digital lifestyle.
We worked outside in our maths lesson focusing on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.
We created spinning plates to represent the moon phases and worked collaboratively to order them
Treyarnon have had a fantastic few weeks back at Carbeile and have all settled into year 5 excellently. Well done Treyarnon! Keep working hard.
