MFL - French
This Thursday with Madame Morales, we began learning French numbers to 10! We played a lot of games to help us remember the different numbers and thought about ways that we can remember some, for example neuf (nine) was a nerf gun. The children were very quick with learning their numbers and showed great enthusiasm! We are really looking forward to our next session with Madame Morales. 
 
Challenge: Can you remember the French numbers up to 10 in the correct order? Challenge someone at home to see whether they know as much as you!

Planetarium trip!
 
Today, year 5 went to Redruth School to have an amazing space experience! We went inside the planetarium which was a huge, black dome and had the opportunity to learn a lot about space and the universe! The space dome was gigantic and we could lie down to watch a lot of the experience; it felt as if we were actually in space! We learnt about the first moon landing and then spent time thinking about the different planets in our universe! All of year 5 were very inquisitive and extremely well behaved; we had a brilliant trip!
 
Challenge: Can you write a fact file about the planets and stars in our universe?

In today's Project lesson, we were thinking about the skills needed to become a spy! We discussed the different things that a spy needs in order to do their job well; answers included: intelligence, stealth, good reflexes, knowledge of languages and knowing how to hide evidence!
After reflecting on the skills needed, we all then created our own secret spy persona and wrote a job application to become the world's best top secret spy!

Today we were very lucky to have a visit from Madame Morales who is a Modern Foreign Languages teacher at Redruth School. She will be visiting 5/6 CG and 5/6 MD every other Thursday to help us learn the beginnings of French. 
Madame Morales began with teaching us how to greet each other in French; we are able to say 'hello', 'what is your name?' and 'my name is'. We had a lot of fun pretending to be famous people and saying our names!
 
Challenge: Can you say 'Comment tu t'appelles?' and answer with 'Je m'appelles ....' Try speaking some French when you are at home.
