Einstein class so far…

Since the start of September we have been so busy with lots of learning! So far we have:

  • Enjoyed studying the Butterfly Lion and learning how to expand our vocabulary knowledge, skim and scan a text and understand how an author uses language to tell us a story.
  • Become amazing Word Wizards – Einstein class was joint top in week one – let’s keep finding out new words please!
  • Learnt about the Mayans; including how they were discovered, what their daily life was like, how they considered blood-letting essential for pleasing the gods and how you wouldn’t want to ever lose a game of Pok-a-Tok!
  • Developed our knowledge of place value including looking at big numbers up to a million and decimals.
  • Found out how descriptive we can make our sentences, stories and diary entries by using relative clauses, fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases
  • Also found time to swim, learn French, work on our kinetic letters, study spellings, practice our times tables and discover how we can help make our school a better place to learn and have fun!

We have also taken the opportunity to look at blogging and what makes a good blog. So, I shall now hand over to the fantastic children in Einstein class who will tell you, in their own words, what they have enjoyed most and learnt so far in Year 5.

    This term I have enjoyed learning about the Mayans, here are some of the fun facts…
    Men in the Mayan times wore loincloths and they didn’t get clothes until they were 5 years old. Only wealthy people and warriors got tattoos. Mayans believed that chocolate was a gift from the gods, and considered cacao beans as money. They made many types of food out of maize including tortillas porridge and even drinks, maize is a type of corn. Also in Year 5 we have been learning about place value in maths, the chart is… millions, hundred thousand, ten thousand, hundred, tens, units, tenths and hundredths. Can’t wait to blog again. BYE

    We have enjoyed learning about the Mayan times, we have learnt about their daily lives and their gods and if you were Mayan you would never want to lose a game of pok-a-tok.

    In year five, I have been learning about the Mayans. The Mayans worshipped many gods. They also had a game called pokatok which is a ball game and if you lose, your captain gets killed or even the whole team!Pokatok was made so the Mayans wouldn’t get bored. pokatok is a little like football. my favourite fact was that they invented chocolate! They said it was very valuable!

    We have been learning about the butterfly lion in literacy and we’re writing diaries and paragraphs about it. I love listening to the story and then writing what ever we want about it.

    I really enjoyed learning about the Mayan Civilisation. I was doing a diary entry about being a priest. I had to make the decision to kill 100 people! I loved the fancy clothes and jewellery. We did a lot of
    research and writing questions about the Mayans. We are reading the amazing Butterfly Lion and it’s incredible. The storyline is so interesting and we’re already re-writing the start of the story. We have gone swimming and had lots of fun. In Maths, we did rounding and decimals the place value chart is M, HTH, TTH, TH, H, T and U. I have enjoyed being in Year 5 so far. Can’t wait to post again!

    This year I have been selected for the school council! Which means I will go to meetings to make the school a better place! In each class there is only one person that gets picked so that is very special to me!another thing I love doing in school is swimming! I am in the top group with miss Bland! Next swimming lesson I will be wearing my clothes underwater! I am very excited but a bit nervous. Our first topic in year five has been about the Mayans! already we have learnt lots of stuff and I am very excited to learn more! We have learnt about their clothes, what the eat and much more! the most interesting fact I have learnt so far, is that they invented chocolate!

    In maths we learnt about how you do the triangle method and how to work with millions we’re also working with decimals. In literacy I love writing about the butterfly lion and improving my vocabulary. I want to stay in this school because it is a positive learning environment.
