This week (as you may have noticed on the playground) we had a visit from the Life Education Centre. On Wednesday we had a lesson on the life trailer about being healthy; both physically and mentally. We discussed what was good for our mind and body along with what isn’t so good. The lesson was very informative and everyone shared their existing knowledge and experiences. On top of all that, it was a lot of fun!
This term we have started using the Times Tables Rockstars app.
The aim is to improve our knowledge of Times tables and the speed in which we can recall them.
This can be accessed at school and at home. Login details will be sent home this week. TTRockStars.com
We had a very exciting Computing lesson this week as we were the first at Brookhill Leys to use the brand new chrome books. This week we were searching for information and pictures about our topic (New York) and started to collate the information using Google Slides. Next week we should start to finish our presentations and hopefully show to the rest of class.
Happy New Year!
We have already made a fantastic start to 2019 exploring existing fantasy stories.
Our new topic for this year is New York and the book we will be reading is Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins.
To end our fantastic first week we had a drama lesson. Working in pairs we acted out a fantasy story that over the next couple of weeks will be writing for display.
As usual, we had lots of fun and now understand the story a lot better.
Last Friday year 5 had a great time at the National Space Centre in Leicester. We had lots of fun learning all about space and several space missions including Apollo 11 and Tim Peake’s recent ISS mission.
Here is a short video of all of the pictures taken throughout the day.
Penguin Class were a real credit to Brookhill Hill Leys. The staff at the Centre were really impressed with our behaviour and space knowledge!
