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 :)

Class 5 Wellbeing Week

Class 5 have really enjoyed our extra PSHE lessons this week and have thought about their feelings and emotions, as well as how to stay safe online, at home and at school and in tricky situations. 

The children have thought hard about being a good friend and can list the qualities needed - we still need to practice acting on these thoughts some of the time though. Maybe over the weekend your child could take some time to reflect on their friendships and if they make the right choices through what they do and say or how they could be an even better friend. 

Swimming is on Monday so please do not forget swimming kits!!! 

Looking forward to seeing most of you at open session - it is a great chance to come and see our classroom and all the fab work they are doing! 

Have a lovely weekend, 

Miss Walker :)

Class 5 Week 4

Another busy week at School! Class 5 have participated in a range of workshops this week and have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Their beautiful Caribbean artwork will be displayed and you’ll be able to have a good look at open session. Photos are also already on the website!

We have also finished fractions work and are ready to move onto decimals! Timetables Rockstars has been a great hit for Class 5 – with every member of the class logging on and play multiple times! WELL DONE! On Monday we will be seeing who is the most improved, the star of the week and the highest scorer – good luck all!

Please remember swimming kits are needed on Monday as well as usual PE kit for the rest of the week (indoor and outdoor).

Have a great weekend and enjoy the snow!

Spring Week 1

What a great start to 2019! All the children in Class 5 have been thoroughly engaged and focus with our new topics, particularly our English Novel – Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen. We have been looking at features of this mystery text and have been using our inference and deduction skills to predict how the story will progress.

Our other new topics we have started this week are ‘Funky Furnishings’ and ‘Light and Shadow’. We have a few more lessons on South America, but we will then move onto the Anglo Saxons!

Just a quick reminder that our class trip is on Tuesday 15th and the children need to be at school for 8:15am so the coach can leave on time.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend – perhaps get a head start on grid homework! (remember 5 pieces, not 4).

See you Monday

Miss Walker :)
