5C Autumn 2 week 5

5C Blog Week 5 Autumn 2
English and R.E This week, we have been busy writing detailed instructions for how to make a paper Advent wreath having watched a clip on completing this task.  The instructions 5C wrote were extremely impressive using very precise vocabulary as well as top tips and imperative verbs. We also discussed the religious significance of these wreaths within our lessons.  Here is the clip again if you would like to attempt to make this wreath at home: There is an expectation that 5C write in joined up handwriting in every piece of work and the entire class has made a concerted effort to do so. Keep up the good work! We are encouraging everyone to write to the best of their abilities and to carefully consider how best to edit their work.

We have spent this week looking at Judaism, especially the significant meal eaten on the Seder plate during Passover. We have compared and contrasted aspects of the Jewish faith with Catholicism and thought about the spiritual reasons for the actions of believers.
Following on from our work on identifying equivalent fractions, we have been converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa as well as solving a range of problems on this topic.  We have worked on the formal written method for multiplying a 2 digit number number by another 2 digit number and we have rounded 6 digit numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, thousand etc.

We have worked hard to learn how to use maps to answer a range of geographical questions,…

We have been looking closely at the sacrament of marriage in the Catholic church and how it differs from a civil wedding ceremony.  The children have thoughtfully created booklets about what happens in a Catholic wedding and explaining what the significant symbols and signs within the Catholic wedding service are. They have also enjoyed writing their own quiz questions about a Catholic wedding.  Can you ask your parent one of your quiz questions?!

We are reading an interactive e-book to find out the varied ways that people have had fun throughout history and throughout the world. We have made predictions and  scanned and summarised the information we have read.

We have been starting some further work on fractions. The children have been learning how to spot equivalent fractions as well as ordering fract…
