Half Term Already!

Half Term already!

Wow, it’s been a very fast and intense term in Okataina!

Our learning theme of ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ has helped us to learn about our own families and personal histories.  We have all created a family tree, with Summer going back to the 1800s!  We also all interviewed our families (with some very interesting responses!) and created a thematic map of where we live.  This has all led to an entertaining display (above)

One of our favourite days this term was No Pens Wednesday, where we focused on our communication skills through speaking and listening, rather than writing.  This led to some very entertaining sessions – leaf collecting, maths in the playground and drama.

We are all looking forward to a great autumn holiday and then back with renewed energy for more exciting learning next term. 


Welcome to the World of Okataina!

It's been an exciting start to Year 5.  In art, we have been looking at the work of Banksy and are working with stencils to create our own 'Banksy' masterpiece - we will post our results soon!  We met our new football coach from Southampton, Mr Tyson.  English has been quite tough as we are learning about different tenses in the past and how to use them to best effect and in maths, it's been all about place value, negative numbers and Roman Numerals. In our science forces work, we made paper planes and investigated the forces that affect how a plane flies.
