New beginnings

Welcome back!

We have had a fantastic first week and the children have quickly settled into life in Class 5.

In English, we have started our study on the book ‘Eye of the Wolf’ by Daniel Pennac. The children have all made predictions based on the front cover and have started to infer details about the main characters.

In Maths, we have looked at finding the value that each digit represents in 5/6 digit numbers by playing a great game of ‘beat the teacher’. It is currently a draw so we will see if we have a winner next week. 

We started our North America geography topic this week and the children located North America on a world map as well as looking at the countries that belong to it. Next week, we will start our in-depth country study by going on our USA road trip. Our first stop will be New York!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Week 2

Another busy week over in Class 5! There were some fantastic World Book Day costumes – loved the creativity behind them.

We have been revisiting statistics this week in Maths, with a new focus on Line Graphs – this was new to most children and they have worked really hard to understand their usage, how to draw them and how to interpret. As always, we have worked on our arithmetic skills. The pace and understanding has dramatically improved and I’m sure this will reflect during assessment week!

We have continued to use Boy in the Tower as our text type – the narrative pieces of writing I have read this week have been outstanding. As a class we have been working on ‘showing not telling’. This means describing what is happening, what it might feel like or look like rather than what it is. We have had to have a long chat on handwriting and presentation as this seems to have slipped. Unfortunately, some pen permits have been suspended as, after repeated reminders and extra interventions over the last few months, this hasn’t been improved and so no longer meets the standard needed to write in pen. I’m hoping these pen permits can be used once again in the weeks to come.

Don’t forget swimming kits on Monday!

Have a good weekend,

Miss Walker :)
