#LyricalGenius

The children this week have thoroughly enjoyed writing and sharing their raps to The Fresh Prince and Me Myself and I.

There are definitely some future rap stars!

 

We have learnt about Aristotle and Galileo in science to help us understand how things fall due to gravity.

 

To help us find our way around the globe, we learnt a little about latitude and longitude. We tried to find places using latitude and longitude as well as using maps to find a places latitude and longitude.

 

Over the next couple of weeks the children will learn about persuasion, problem solving and how to effect how things fall.

 

REMINDER: On Wednesday 17th January from 6.30pm – 7.15pm we will be hosting an E-Safety Meeting for parents. All parents are welcome but please bear in mind it will not be appropriate for you to bring children with you. We hope you will be able to join us and take the opportunity to share key information and tips on how to help your child to stay safe when they are online. If you navigate to our Parents page from the ‘About Us’ hyperlink at the top of the page you will find a handout and other useful information on E-Safety.

WorldInMotion

Just like how John Barnes set the world in motion with his legendary rap in 1990, so have Year 5 with their rapping skills this week.

To launch our small unit on ‘rap’, the children have listened to, compared and performed raps including: Me, Myself and I; The Fresh Prince; Rapper’s Delight and You Can’t Touch This.

Next week the children will learn some techniques before editing and writing their own.

 

Thank you to everyone who completed an entry on the Padlet page over the Christmas break. The feedback from the children has been very positive and we will add another padlet task soon on a future homework. If you were unable to download the apps, the children are welcome to complete the task during soft start using one of the school IPads.

 

We also spent this brief week beginning to learn about the topographical features of Greece and how it is different to the UK.

Can you work out which photographs were taken in the UK and which were taken in Greece?
