Bonjour Year 5!
Special mentions this morning to Sabrina, Orson and Emaan. Sabrina and Orson both shared their fantastic letters from Baboon on Purple Mash. They both thought really hard about what happened to Baboon and how he ended up on the moon. They were very creative and emotive. Emaan sent me her solar system poster. Wow! What a fantastic poster. She included detailed drawings, loads of facts about the planets and even her really funny mnemonic. Check it out on the school's twitter page. Well done guys :)
Today is our book swap day. So if you need to swap your book, please bring it in to get a new one. Our books will be available between 2pm -3pm. Please keep your distance and stay safe.
Don't forget to check out the ELSA, music, Spanish and assemblies blogs regularly. And read the school newsletters for the latest information about school.

Our Learning Today
Lo: to unpick a scene
So far we have looked back into baboon's life to understand his past and where he comes from. Today we are going to focus on his present. The director has showed us his daily routines and that he lives a very normal but lonely life on the Moon. Now I want us to discover what his job is on the Moon; why NASA kidnapped him and sent him there.
Watch this clip and have a think about what the machine will do. Why is he filling it will fuel? What is going to happen? In your books write your prediction.
Now watch this clip to find out if you were correct. In your books I want you to explain his job in detail. What does he do every day and how does he do it?
In case you were confused, here is my description. Baboon's job is to fill up the fuel tank with moon shine everyday. He walks to the NASA fuelling station and uses the controls to light up the moon. That makes him really important. The Earth needs to the moon to do its job so that life on Earth can continue. Do you think Baboon knows how special and important he is?
Lo: to collect and present data
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
463,573 + 78,472
793,024 - 374,958
547 x 76
1294 ÷ 8
Today we are going to have a go at presenting data for ourselves. If we had been in class I would have asked you to make up a question and collect data by asking your classmates. But we cannot do this at the moment and it would be difficult to ask enough people in your home. So I have made a tally chart for you.
I asked 30 people what their favourite fruit was.
Here I have tallied their answers and written a total for each.
Today I want you to put that information into a bar chart.
I would like you to draw a bar chart in your books. Remember along the bottom, horizontal axis, you will have all the fruits chosen.
Up the vertical axis you will have a scale going up in 1s because this tally is very small. Your scale must reach at least 9 because 9 is the most chosen fruit.
Then you will need to draw bars for each of the fruits up to their correct number on the scale. Try to colour them in different colours so that we can see the difference in each bar.
Label both axes and give your chart a title.
Here are your challenges for today. You do not need to do them all.
Lo: to research important people
Today we are going to do some research. Yesterday we found out some key events in space travel history and found out the names of some important people. I would like you research these 5 important people that travelled to space. Please use kiddle for your research and answer the questions below.
Please check out the Spanish blog for this week's lesson.
Have a great day! Theo :)
