The two main characters in our class story, Dani and Mamo, have both run away from their current situations and are heading to the streets of Addis Ababa, where we're beginning to think they may meet.
So, in LITERACY, this week we've explored photographs of Ethiopian street children to help us understand their plight and used the thesaurus to extend our vocabulary to describe the images. With Mrs Charlesworth's help we have written some poetry based on street children. This next week, we'll do some hot-seating and explore the feelings of and attitudes towards street children through diary writing and expressing points of view. I've come across an amazing painting called Jesus and the street children (of Manila) that we will look at too next week. One of the class has suggested we do a fundraising event to raise money to help street children. We'll see what ideas we can come up with.
In MATHS we continued to explore triangles, not only naming them (equilateral, scalene and isosceles) but also measuring and identifying their angles (acute, obtuse and right angle) with a protractor. We've started to explore the angles in any quadrilateral and will move on to recognise, identify and name the properties of a number of quadrilaterals next week.
We've practiced our 4 times table and are currently learning our 8 times tables and relevant facts. We'll have short quick recall tests next week on both!
We have explored Ethiopian Scrolls as part of our ICT and linking to our class story, where Dani's mother is very ill and has flown to England for an operation. 'In Ethiopia, when people are sick or anxious, they may commission a scroll from a priest or shaman. The patient looks at the scroll and recites prayers, and by doing so enters into a healing state.' We have created our own Ethiopian Scrolls in the style of Jepchumba, an African Digital Artist.
In ART we have looked at two contemporary Ethiopian artists — Addisalem Zewdie and Muluken Tekle. We noted their use of bright colours, line and shape to create images of people and then painted our own versions. We now have an art gallery in our classroom thanks to our wonderful painters!
We are looking forward to our visit on Thursday, when we will be able to see and talk about lots of amazing artefacts and works of art in both the museum and gallery.
MUST READ MICHAEL MORPURGO We're heading towards the end of the month and the Y5 Reading Challenge is to read a Michael Morpurgo book. So do get reading and remember to complete a reading record!
I'm sure it's going to be a very exciting week ahead!
