We had a great time on January 24th at Miss Stanley's leaving party. We ate some yummy food and played some fun games. Best of all, we danced the afternoon away!
As part of our ICT task for this year's Eisteddfod, we read the story of St David and then transferred this into a modern day comic strip. We had lots of fun making them!
J8 have been busy practising their Eisteddfod songs.
We have also been singing some of our favourite songs whilst we work!
In Year 5, we have been learning about Islam in RE. We have been learning about the religion as well as the Muslim place of Worship. Therefore, we decided to visit a Mosque in Cardiff where we could see first hand what it was like inside.
Not only did we visit a mosque, we also visited a nearby Church in Cardiff which allowed us to discuss similarities and differences between the two different places of worship.
We also had great fun having lunch at Cardiff Bay and enjoyed the Autumn sunshine :)
We were lucky enough to be given a demonstration of the Islamic call to prayer. Take a look at our video below!
In Geography, we are learning about islands. We researched an island of our choice and recorded the facts in our books.
In Science we are learning about Solids, Liquids and Gases.
We looked at how an ice cube can change to more than one state of matter.
In English, we are reading Why The Whales Came. We have been discussing Samson Island and what we think it would be like. Then, we recorded these fantastic adjectives in our books using a mindmap.
Which adjectives would you use to describe this island?
This term, we have been learning about The Salvation Army. We have looked at the work of William Booth as well as Catherine Booth. We have also discussed the work of the Salvation Army and the different groups of people they help.
Take a look at our Wordfoto images which describe The Salvation Army.
J8 have been working super hard to produce some fantastic learning log challenges. Here are a few of my favourites so far :) Well done everyone!
