December was a very busy month in Katie’s Fifth Class. Our Maths lessons began with long division. Through hard work and using anagrams, the children became very confident in their abilities to solve long division problems. Weight was another area of Maths that we all enjoyed. We made Rocky Road and Marshmallow Treats to show how we can apply our knowledge of weight to real life situations. As part of Visual Arts and Maths we painted symmetrical snowflakes. The children created some beautiful work.
In Learn Together lessons we learned about palm oil and the impact illegal palm oil production has on the environment. The class created posters to promote an awareness of illegal palm oil production. We completed drama lessons to show the destruction of rainforests.
