Our first day!
We had a swell time on our first day in Chestnut Class. Aswell as getting to know each other, we took part in some great activities too, such as: creating our class promise; team building games; choosing our class book and creating a presentation- that we delivered to the rest of the class (based on the theme, 'all about me').
We have kick-started our Literacy learning with the book, 'The Adventures of Odysseus'. We have explored our initial thoughts about the book and considering what we have learnt; we carried out some research of our own. We were tasked with presenting to the rest of the class an element of Greek Mythology- of our own choosing.
In Mathematics, we are embedding our place value and number skills. When you get to Year 5, it really starts to become a bit tricky; working with such large numbers, so we thought we would take advantage of some of the amazing resources we have at Thrunscoe to represent numbers in several different ways.
