The year 5 children were invited to year 3 today to help the children evaluate their moving monsters. Then we invited the year 3 children into our classroom to look at our Viking museum. It was lovely to see the children share their work and talk about what they had created with such pride.
The children in Einstein class have been busy creating Viking artefacts from clay. They labelled their artefact giving the audience a little more information.
A lovely afternoon was had by all.
A group of children from Einstein went to Ecton Brook primary school today to become Scientists. They made ice-cream; extracted their DNA and discovered how to see the germs living on their hands!
They had a great time and returned to school buzzing with excitement.
Einstein class had a visit this morning from the year one children of Matilda class. They were paired up and shared a book together. Well done year 5 – you read to your partner, talked about the pictures, discussed the story and explained what some of the words meant. It was lovely to see you working so well with the younger children.
This morning some pupils from Rushden Academy performed ‘Add Me’ to years 5 and 6. The performance highlighted the dangers of friending someone online that they have never met, even if they consider them a friend.
The performance was brilliant and the children from Einstein class left the hall buzzing with excitement. They especially enjoyed the online language and hand signals that were used in the performance – like, ignore, status update, profile, selfies etc. It was a very important message – delivered in an engaging and relevant way by teenagers.
Some comments from the children of Einstein class:
“I learnt that a girl or boy’s profile isn’t always true.”
“I learnt that a person on the internet can pretend to be whoever they want to be.”
“It’s easy to find out about people online and then trick them – scary!”
After discussing online safety with the children after the performance, so many of them told me that they had blocked people that they didn’t know and told parents if a stranger had contacted them. Well done Einstein class – you are making the right decisions about keeping safe online. Keep it up!
In response to requests from some parents about the year 5 commonly confused words, please find the list below. These were the homophones that the children were tested on this term.
draw, drawer, cereal, serial, precede, proceed, affect, effect, story, storey, aloud, allowed, alter, altar, herd, heard, altogether, all together, accept, except.
Please note that the year 5/6 words are in the back of the childrens grey reading record.
The Hamlet presentation pieces are coming along nicely. Looking forward to seeing the final outcomes on Friday.
Keep going Einstein class.
We had a lovely Thursday afternoon last week concentrating on our watercolour skills. I’m looking forward to seeing the final outcomes.
Well done Einstein class.
Einstein class had great fun this afternoon learning how to progamme Micro:bits.
Thank you to Einstein digital leaders Kacper, Ash and Kayleigh for leading the lesson and helping with problems.
