Uluru Debate

We have really enjoyed our first month back at school. Our topic for this term is Australia and we have been learning all about Australian states, landmarks and the habitats of animals that live there. In numeracy we have been working really hard to learn our multiplication facts, how to add and subtract 3 digit numbers and lots more. In literacy we have looked at poetry and have written our own colour poems. We have also enjoyed starting the Accelerated reading programme and trying to reach our targets. We love all reading together each day in class. Each Wednesday morning we go swimming and this is a highlight of the week for most.

We have been learning all about Ayers Rock (Uluru). We researched facts and created a list of reasons why you should and shouldn't climb it. We then held debates discussing the issue.

We had a brilliant time at our school disco, showing off our dance moves. Lots of us enjoyed dressing up and there were a few very spooky costumes!

We looked at and discussed the work of Australian artist Emma Gale. We took inspiration from her collages to create our own Australian bird collages. Didn't we do well!

We are having lots of fun in P.E each Friday. Andy, a coach from IFA has been teaching us ball skills and how to play handball.

We love Fridays in P5! We get to enjoy golden time each Friday afternoon and the winning table each week get to bring in a toy from home.
