Year 5 Maths- Converting Measures- 18.10.2015
This week we will be looking at measurement, with a focus on converting measures. Take a look at this 'chuckle vision' TV clip to see the types of things we mean. Then see if you can complete the questions below.
Black History Day
Friday 2nd October 2015
The children in year 5 have been learning about the inspirational and influential Mary Seacole today. We have been truly blown away by her courage and kind nature! Mary Seacole stood up for her beliefs, despite racial prejudice. Mary's intention was to volunteer her services to Florence Nightingale, who was setting up a hospital in the Crimea.
Even on the journey to England Mary encountered prejudice: as a Creole (with a white father and a black mother) she was considered of inferior status.
When she applied to the War Department in London to join Florence Nightingale as a nurse, she was turned away with the weak excuse that no more nurses were needed...although Mary was under no illusion that she was being rejected because of her colour.
So Mary decided to travel to the Crimea and build her own hospital and in spite of hearing stories about the harsh conditions she would encounter in the Crimea, she was determined to carry out her plans.
I’m sure your children will have plenty to talk about this weekend!
Wonderful work today year 5!
Wishing you all a fantastic holiday, enjoy your celebrations,
Looking forward to seeing you on Monday for the Eid party, in the afternoon.
The Year 5 team.
