Year 5 Stargazing Event
On Wednesday 31st January, Year 5 had a stargazing event after school. We had special expert visitors who came to talk about telescopes and planets; these were very informative and even the teachers learned something new. We enjoyed soup and hot dogs before heading outside to look up at the stars. We also found out that on this night there was a special event happening – the rare blue super moon and lunar eclipse. The moon appeared much brighter and bigger than usual and we were very lucky to be able to see the stars that make up Orion’s belt. Thank you to Mrs Chaplen and Miss Noice for organising this event and we hope everybody had a wonderful time. Happy space searching stargazers!

We have completed hot writes, writing persuasive letters to the Australian President about saving the Great Barrier Reef. On the 21st December, we had a movie day and we had a hot chocolate and marshmallows as a gift from Miss Noice. We enjoyed the film and the hot chocolate and marshmallows.

This week has been a busy week for Lavender Class. On Monday, we watched the KS1 nativity. We were very impressed with the singing and acting from the Years 1’s and 2’s. We thoroughly enjoyed watching their performance. Well done to KS1! Some of Lavender class have been taking part in Bikeability this week. They have been learning how to perform unexpected, emergency and controlled stops. They have also been learning how to signal to other road users and turn right at a junction as well as making a u-turn in the road. They have been developing their skills to ride their bikes on the road with a good position. They have all been having a great time with the team from bikeability. We would like to say Thank You to the staff from Bikeability. We are all excited about visiting the Christmas Fair on Friday afternoon and after school. As as class, we have decided that £2-3 is the right amount of money to bring to the Christmas Fair as we will only be visiting in school time for about 15 minutes. We have been discussing break time and lunchtime rules as class and have reminded each other that we should treat others the way we wish to be treated ourselves.

This week we have been writing persuasive letters to save the orang-utans with are shoulder partners. We wrote a script for a persuasive charity advert and performed it to the class. Miss Noice filmed all of our adverts. Please take a look at our hard work, but don’t call any of the fantasy phone numbers! We focussed on how to save orang-utans. After we filmed them we watched them, they all talked about the poaching of orang-utans. We have learned that people poach orang-utans for their meat, skulls and there babies. After we watched the adverts we evaluated them by writing down 3 what went wells and 1 even better if. We have also created persuasive charity posters for saving orang-utans. We have enjoyed learning how to persuade people but now we are all keen to fundraise to help orang-utans.

Our Tech Deck Trip Report
On Tuesday 14th November, Year 5 (Lavender and Mint) went to the Tech Deck in Southsea. It is the headquarters of the BAR (Ben Racing) team competing in the America’s cup. We walked to the train station as fast as we could, got onto the train, got off the train at Portsmouth Harbour and had a twenty minute walk to where we had lunch. Once we arrived at the Tech Deck, we participated in different activities including watching the highlights of The 2017 America’s Cup in Bermuda. After that, Mark (our tour guide) was kind enough to let us explore the exhibition. Next, we were given an envelope full of statements and statistics about ocean plastics. For example: America use 3,000,000 bottles per hour.
Following this, we discussed how ocean plastics affect marine life including birds. We were given a tray with popcorn and plastic in, a spoon and a cup. We were asked to scoop the popcorn and plastic into the cup as fast as we could. This was to imitate how a bird would eat. Once we had filled the cup, we had to remove the popcorn (which would be digested by the bird) and leave the plastic. The plastic cannot be digested by birds and so they still feel full and starve to death.
Finally, we made a promise to change one thing that will help keep our oceans plastic free and our marine life healthy. We enjoyed our day out and can’t wait to complete more work on this back at school.

We have created some amazing homework using statistics about the Great Barrier Reef including: models, PowerPoints and fact cards. An example of our homework, completed by Cameron McCaffray, is available to look at in the link below. In maths this week, we have been looking at more adding and subtracting using the column method. We are becoming more confident using written methods to solve problems and are looking forward to our…big maths test on Friday. In GPS we have been looking at relative clauses, why don’t you ask us to show you one when we get home? We have been enjoying our lessons in PE with Mr Ghosh, Miss Sadler and Mr Magnus. We have been working on improving our team games and football and basketball skills. This week, we learnt all about the Power-of-one and how we can stop bullying in our school by changing our own behaviour. We are going to be completing some follow up work on this ready for Anti-Bullying week next week. We learnt that there are 3 types of bullying: cyber bullying, verbal bullying and physical bullying. Cameron, Carter and Jack also represented Lavender Class at the Sports Leader Training at Mountbatten Centre on Tuesday. They participated in different activities and received a pack of resources to enable them to be sports leaders within Highbury Primary School. We are very proud of them!

Languages week (Lavender Class)
Last term in language’s week, we learnt the Chinese language, Mandarin. We also learnt to count to ten and by the end of the week we could count to ten with no mistakes. Someone came in to talk to us who originally lived in Beijing, China and taught us how to write in Mandarin and told us about lots of temples and palace’s such as the ‘Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven’. We also are looking forward to finishing Kensuke’s Kingdom and also cooking our empanadas. We also enjoyed designing and making our terracotta warriors and making them. We all created such amazing sketches that took us half an hour of careful concentration. We all really enjoyed making our clay models, which are pictured below. In forest school, we all pretended to be stranded on a desert island and our teacher gave us a big sheet of tarpaulin and we all climbed up the trees and held it up. Then, we tied it to a tree and went inside and put down logs to sit on. Forest school is a very good outdoor lesson led by Mrs Fuller our lovely teacher. Last week, we also performed our amazing class assembly based on languages in the BBC breakfast news room. All the class had a country, city and three people from our class would talk about it. For example, Italy, Rome, France, Paris. With Miss Chadwick, we made mini great walls of china out of paper they were very hard but, we all got there in the end!
