# P5a- Self -Portraits

We had great fun creating realistic self-portraits. We started with a cross in the middle of our paper to help us put our eyes, nose and mouth in the right place. We then had to add in our ears and hair. To finish it off we had to create a zentangle design around the endless of our portrait.

# P5a – outdoor literacy

We were finishing off our learning about apostrophes by having a contraction competition outside! We had two lists and had to make as many contractions that we could. It was great fun and we all enjoyed trying to beat each other. The winning pair were Oliver and Milo with 45, Marcus and Morgan had 40 and came second, Mia and Maisie came third with 34! Great work everyone.

# P5a – Trip to the City Chambers

As part of our Democracy fortnight we got the chance to visit the City Chambers. We found out lots of interesting things. Did you know there is over 500 rooms in the building? Parts of the building are very old and other parts are around 200 years old. On the statue outside in the courtyard the horse has got pig ears.

Here are some photos of us enjoying the trip.

# P5a – Learning Log 25th May

Scott and Alasdair

This week in maths we have been learning about Function machines and using them to challenge our partners and using multiplication sums to see how well you know them we think it went well.
In literacy we have been doing work on using lots of word patterns to help us spell different words we think it could have gone better.

We think topic went well because the plant experiment is really cool and fun rather than being boring and not just writing in our jotters.

We think PE could have gone better because we didn’t get in the obstacle courses or the competitive races or anything we really wanted to do this year for sports day.

We are really looking forward to the summer holidays because it will be fun.

Marcus and Mia
In maths Marcus did division to help him do number problems. In maths Mia did remainders and learned how to divide.

In spelling Mia did ship/hood. Marcus did magic e with u.

In literacy we did apostrophes to show possession

I think P. E went well because it was fun to race.

I think topic could of been better because when we went to the dark room some people were silly.

I am looking forward to sports day because I like running and jumping.

# P5a – Science Experiments
