All Saints CEVA
Primary School & Nursery


Year 5 Spring Week 6

Maths: in Maths we learnt about dividing large numbers with remainders.

English: we had our penultimate sentence stacking lesson on The Martian.

History: on Monday in our History lesson we learnt about democracy and had a debate about whether cars should be banned or not. There was a chief whip, a journalist and two party leaders. One leader wanted to keep cars whilst the other wanted to ban cars and we were split up in 2 teams: one wanted to keep cars, one not. Both leaders prepared a speech. After both leaders had said their speech we had a silent vote. The results were – Ban cars = 7. Keep cars = 14. We also stood up if we had something to say like in the House of Commons.

Art: we started making our papier mache vases with diluted glue and strips of paper.

FUN FACT: did you know papier mache is French for chewed paper?
