We have had great fun in Year 5 this week! We have been enjoying our topic on Earth & Space and learnt lots of new knowledge from Mike on Wednesday during the planetarium visit. We got to see the stars move in the night sky in an interactive dome and the children enjoyed playing with games from the Space age era/handling real meteorites!
We have been using our space knowledge to investigate in art using different materials and marks to create our own solar system. Attached are some images of the work we have created so far!
European languages day was also super fun! We welcomed our special guest ...... Mr. Costa!!! Mr. Costa is our helpful ICT technician, who is Portuguese, and he taught us all a Portuguese song! He also answered many questions the children had about Portugal and life in Portugal. We then learnt all about the Portuguese flag and what the colours and symbols meant. A lot of learning and fun for all!
Watch us in action learning Portuguese in the video! :D
