This week we have been working on attacking and defending games with Mr Johnson in PE. We have played games of Hand Ball and learn't to use a single handed overhead pass in the game.
This week we have looked at Darwin's Great Journey. We used Extracts from his journals which we first placed in chronological order (Darwin wrote his journals by location) and then mapped out the locations of the places he visited using longitude and latitude coordinates and recorded the dates of each stop. We will be using this to explore some of these details in more detail and look at some of his discoveries.
We have had a fantastic start to our new year in Class 5! We have begun our new topic and learnt some information about Darwin's journey on the HMS Beagle. We have also started our Time Table Rock Stars and we are rapidly improving our recall of multiplication facts.
