5H & 5S Information & Photos

Week commencing 6th January 2020

 

One term down already! Time flies when you are having fun, here are a few things we did last term:

  • We've covered place value, addition, subtraction, statistics, multiplication and division and area and perimeter in mathematics.
  • We've drafted, edited and written our own Quest stories, Letters, Non Chronological Reports and Newspapers. Using a range of literary devices such as parenthesis, similes, adverbials of time and place, relative clauses and began to explore non-fiction writing using headings, headlines, captions, formal tone and technical language.
  • In Science we have explored Space and used our knowledge of Space to understand forces in Space and here on Earth. We have conducted fair tests in our experiments through understanding variables that are constant or that we control.
  • We've furthered our knowledge of the Vikings, through research, games and role play.
  • 5H have been to weekly swimming lessons.
  • We've created some amazing space themed art work.
  • Created dinner plans for astronauts during Green Day.
  • We performed in a wonderful carol concert for our parents and carers.
  • We had the privilege to watch a drama company perform Aladdin. 

 

 

It's really been a wonderful first term; we are looking forward to seeing you all after your Christmas break.

 

Things to look forward to and remember:

  • 5S begin swimming on Mondays, please remember to bring your swimming kit every week.
  • Professor McGinty is coming to school in January for a Viking packed day!
  • Starting our new Geography topic 'Around the World'.

So... here we find ourselves at the end of a very busy half term. We have had brilliant time so far this year and the children have all been working extremely hard to thrive in all lessons.

 

So far:

 

  • We've covered place value, addition, subtraction and statistics in Maths.
  • We've drafted, edited and written our own Quest stories, focusing on parenthesis, similes, adverbials of time and place and relative clasues.
  • We've developed our understanding of Space, through lots of research and investigations.
  • We've furthered our knowledge of the Vikings, through research and fun activities.
  • 5H have been to weekly swimming lessons.
  • We've created some amazing space themed art work.

 

It's really been a fantastic first half term and the children really deserve a break. Have an amazing week off and come back ready to go on November 4th. (Remember your swimming kits/PE kits when we come back!)

 

Also, please make sure to read over the week off and to of course continue learning the spellings that have been handed out this week.

 

Have a great week everyone!

Week ending Friday 20th September 2019

 

We've had a fantastic start to the year across year 5, with lots of new and exciting things being taught and enjoyed in school.

 

We've all been working hard on our Place Value in Maths lessons and we've been reading and writing about Quest stories, adding lots of detail and description, including adverbials, noun phrases and similes in our English lessons.

 

We have also started two new, amazing new topics of The Vikings in History and Space in Science, which the children are thoroughly enjoying and learning many new things.

 

The children have all settled in to our new routines and have been working extremely hard within all of their lessons, showing excellent behaviour. Keep it up!

 

A few reminders:

  • Swimming Kit is needed for 5H every Monday
  • PE kit is needed every Monday and Thursday
  • Art aprons/old shirts should be kept in school on your child's peg
  • Spellings folders are needed every Monday
  • Homework is given out on a Monday and is due back in before Thursday
  • Reading should be completed at home at least 4 times per week, but ideally children are encouraged to read daily.

 

If you have any questions, please come and see us both before school between 8:45am and 8:55am.
