Investigating Multiples and Factors

Team 5 have been exploring multiples and factors this week. They have been recognizing and explaining patterns that they have identified. We think they did a fantastic job! #zest #improving

Our school councillers in action. #independence #respect #teamwork

Man or Monster? What kind of man was Henry VIII?

Team 5 started our topic week off by solving the mystery of the skeleton in the car-park. They made links between lots of visual clue to hypothesize who this mystery skeleton could belong to? They then brought the Battle of Bosworth to life through some fantastic freeze-frames.

Wow, we were so impressed with the skills and #character strengths that Team 5 showed in this session! After being given a mystery sealed envelop and a blank sheet of paper, Team 5 were tasked with making links between all the artefacts given in order to work out what our next Talk for Writing topic would be.


They were given maps, spices, candles, gold coins and photographs. They #communicated brilliantly as #teams and recorded their ideas on their sheets. Thanks to some fantastic #reasoning and #questioning - a number of teams figured it out! Over the next few weeks, linked to our Tudor topic, we will be learning about the voyage of Sir Francis Drake.

In science, Team 5 have been asking questions about the solar system. In this session, they were comparing theories of planetary movement. They showed fantastic #zest, #communication and #teamwork when explaining their existing understanding of technical vocabulary.

Can Team 5 distinguish between fact, belief and opinion? In RE, Team 5 have been investigating why some people think God exists and exploring the concept of belief. They analysed newspaper articles to identify evidence of 'good' and 'bad' news to support the arguments for and against the existence of God.


They used #communication and #teamwork to compare statements and categorise them.
