Welcome to P5D. As you scroll through the sections below, you will see the fabulous work we have been doing in P5. The children have loved our topic of The Human Body, exploring the different systems at play in our bodies and how to keep our bodies fit and healthy.
We had a fun music lesson on Friday. The children loved exploring rhythm and performed their compositions through call and response. Some of the children also performed on their instruments for the rest of the class. It was wonderful to see the children exploring music and developing their skills.
Here is a video of one of our science experiments. We observed how cornflour can change from a liquid to a solid when sound waves were played through it. The children were very excited to see the gloop boogie.
Below you can see the children enjoying outdoor learning where they had to piece together the human skeleton and label the major bones of the body.
Below you can see a working model of the lungs made from a plastic bottle, a straw, playdough and 2 balloons. The children were able to demonstrate the effect our diaphragm has on helping us breathe.
We have been exploring 2D shape as part of maths week. The children have been sorting 2D shapes using venn diagrams and then intentionally making mistakes for others to spot. They have loved creating 2D shape art inspired by the artist Paul Klee.
Our class novel in September and October has been 'The Worst Witch' written by Jill Murphy. The children have loved creating magical spells, carrying out weird science experiments and entering into an imaginative world full of potions, broomsticks and cauldrons. Below you can see some of their work on display in our classroom.
