Year 5 are going to the Hewett Academy to have extra Music sessions.
They learnt about orchestras, had a go at conducting and began exploring their singing voices. The Hewett staff were bowled over by the children's impressive knowledge and even said they knew more about music than some of the high school students!
As usual, all the Year 5s made their teachers and helpers exceptionally proud as they were respectful and safe at all times during the outing.
These sessions will continue fortnightly until the Easter break and the children are really looking forward to developing their musical skills even more each week.
5M have been learning to evidence their understanding through sharing their knowledge. Below are 6 videos written, performed and filmed by the children to educate others on how to subtract increasingly larger numbers using the columnar formal written method. Some chose to model this abstractly, some using Diennes. All groups demonstrated borrowing and highlighted some common misconceptions.
