5th class did projects about Galileo this week. We looked at reference books about him, and learned that he confirmed Nicholas Copernicus' theory that the Earth revolves around the sun. At the time Galileo was alive, people still didn't believe that, and he was sent to jail! We know so much more about space and time nowadays, and you can have a look at our projects on the corridor wall! You will also see our letter artwork - we were studying area, and we decided to see how many square centimeters our first names would cover.
We were talking about drums during our lesson, and it turns out we have a fantastic drummer in our class! Listen to this!
Have you seen the weather outside?! It's so cold! It hailstoned like crazy when we were in maths today. We happened to be doing measurements (using millimeters, centimeters and meters) so we took our rulers outside and measured the hailstones. The biggest ones we found were 5mm long! We decided to see if we could make some snowballs and have a competition to have the longest snowball. It was freezing, but great fun!
Decimals get harder every year, but we also get smarter! Here we are having a look at our Diennes Blocks and how they represent decimal fractions. We looked at decimal places from tenths to hundredths to thousandths (and then we went a bit crazy and looked at places like 10,000, 100,000 and 1,000,000!). It's really interesting!
