We had a great first week back after half term and really enjoyed starting our new project 'Stargazers'.
The highlight of our week was a visit from an inflatable planetarium. We enjoyed a tour of our solar system and got to look closely at the stars we can see in the northern hemisphere. After the visit, we reserched each planet in more detail and thought about their size in comparison to the Earth.
In English, we have read lots of myths from different cultures - each one of them inspired by the moon. We chose our favourite but all agreed that it could be improved upon. We are now busily re-writing the myth by adding description, developing the vocabulary and building the tension.
In maths, the Year 6s have been tackling long division whilst the Year 5s have been reading and interpreting tables. We all challenged ourselves at the end of the week with some tricky 'Barvember' challenges.
