Welcome to our class blog (Year 5 Professor Brian Cox)

Urban Pioneers:  This week we have been debating whether graffiti is art or vandalism. We have been looking at many images from the anonymous Banksy, while creating stencils in order to re-create some of his famous designs.

Place value has been our starting topic and we have been practicing reading, writing, ordering and comparing numbers. We found that if we use a place value grid with 7 columns, it can help us to identify the value of the digits in the numbers.   


Varjak Paw: We started our class reader this week, which is Varjak Paw by SF Said. So far we have met a family of Mesopotamian blue house cats who have never been outside. We have all been very excited to get to know the various characters and begin to understand the plot.
