Spring 1 in Year 5 - by Emma, Olivia, Gracie and Eloise

Indoor P.E

In indoor P.E we have been learning a dance routine.

It needed to include: a jump, a crouch, a roll, a turn and a reach (it didn’t matter which order they were in). We have been doing it in pairs. It has been lots of fun.

Outdoor  P.E

In outdoor P.E we have been doing hockey we have been practising dribbling and passing the hockey ball. We have been learning a chant the words are: This is my hockey stick this is my friend; if I abuse it I will offend.

Music

In music we have been learning Make You Feel My Love by Adele and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air by Will Smith.

Make you feel my love is a slow song and it makes you calm and relaxed in some people’s opinion. Not everyone enjoyed it, they prefer a faster song.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air has a faster tempo then Make You Feel My Love.

We have been learning to play the chime bars to Make You Feel My Love. We have been dancing and doing a warm-up to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air (order of the warm-up: nod, stamp, clap, tap head, repeat)

We have listened to a new song called You’re So Amazing by Luther Vandross!!!!

English

In English we have been looking at persuasive writing. We have been writing a holiday brochure for a holiday planet. Before that we were writing an advertisement for a hotel that is half underwater. We did this with a partner.

 

Science

Our first topic this year was Earth and Space [science].

We were each a different planet and we had to go around saying which planet we were, and introducing ourselves to other planets, giving information about us.

We made a model of the planets from the closest to the sun to the furthest away out of fruit, to represent the different sizes. We used a peppercorn, a blueberry, two cherry tomatoes, a satsuma, an apple, a grapefruit and a watermelon. We made up mnemonics to remember the order like      My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Noodles
