November 2019 in Year 5/6

This month we have enjoyed getting very creative! In Art, we enjoyed using papier mache to begin making Aztec masks. We used a flour and water mix to make the structure strong and are looking forward to decorating these on Aztec Day! In PE we have continued our gymnastics, investigating counter-balance and counter-tension in partners.

In English, we have been focusing on explanation texts. We had read lots of good examples and identified their features. We have then written our own explanations of how to survive in the Mexican jungle, using all of our knowledge from our History and Geography lessons.
