Yesterday was Peace day. Today Y5C have been studying refugees. We built refugee tents to highlight the number of refugees fleeing
war and persecution. Refugees are forced to leave their homes behind and
travel to a new country, often to set up home at a refugee camp with
tents. We also looked at the book 'The Colour of home' where a young boy
from Somalia finds it hard being a refugee in Britain.
Y5C have been exploring homes around the world as part of their 'No place like home' topic. We began by matching different homes to descriptions about them. Afterwards we located these homes on a world map and then evaluated their positives and negatives.
Today Angus gave a fantastic presentation on his 50 mile challenge.
During the Summer holidays Angus cycled Bristol to Radstock and back to raise money for St. Peter's Hospice.St Peter's Hospice is a Bristol charity caring for adults with
life-limiting illnesses. They aim to improve the quality of their living
and dying while extending care and support to their families and loved
Today Y5C began their project 'There's no
place like home'. During the topic the class will be studying homes & houses and about our home (Bristol/UK). We kicked off the project by playing the property
game Monopoly. As well as being great fun, the game provided lots of
opportunities to improve our maths such as money and calculation skills.
We found out the meaning of vocabulary in the game such as auction,
rent and tax.
