Christmas Wreaths

Room 5 have been working hard making these eye-catching Christmas wreaths.  They have been measuring, cutting and glueing lots of loops of paper to create them.

They have taken a long time but it's worth it because they look AMAZING!

Moon rocks

Today Room 5 made moon rocks.  They worked in groups to measure and mix to make some moon rock dough then they moulded it into interesting shapes.  They had to think about what a rock from the moon might look like.  Here are some photos of the process and our finished rocks.

Area and Perimeter Animals

In maths, we have been designing animals and working out their perimeter and area. We have designed our animals on maths paper then we are going to cut them out and try to make them stand up. You can visit our blogs to see more of our designs and what we have learned about perimeter and area. Here are a few photos showing some of our designs.  Can you work out what animal they are?
