Autumn 2, Week 3

Fractions, fractions and more fractions has been the topic in maths this week. The children have worked really hard converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, finding common denominators and completing word problems. They have a good understanding of the topic, which will help them when we look at decimals and percentages in the next few weeks.

Some brilliant writing has also been happening in Class 5 in the form of newspaper reports! We have been looking a war time newspapers to inspire our writing and see how the news was reported during those times. It was the first time some children had seen a newspaper! If you have any lying around at home maybe show your child so they can compare todays papers with those from 1939!

We made a start on our class assembly today! It is all very exciting with the children doing loads of bits and bobs (some things we haven’t decided yet there are so many!) We are looking forward to seeing you next Friday for it!

Finally, thank you to all those who came Thursday afternoon for our family session. It was great to so many of you working alongside your child and especially having a go at the maths table!

Hope you have a lovely weekend and I’ll see you Monday.

Autumn 2, Week 1

A brilliant week back in Class 5!

In maths this week we have been working hard to develop and deepen our fraction knowledge – identifying equivalences using out multiplication knowledge. Everyone has work extremely hard in the lessons and I can defiantly see the progression in understanding.

The children have also finished their World War 2 non-chronological reports. This has been a lengthy learning journey, where the children planned, researched, drafted and edited and finally typed up their work. They always seem to enjoy these long writing projects and get a lot out of them. It has been great to see relative clauses being included as well as parenthesis!

We have also started our new science topic on ‘Earth and Space’ try and look at the moon each night and see if you can spot any differences!

Have a lovely, restful weekend. See you Monday.

Autumn, Week 7

The first half term complete! All the children have been working exceptionally hard during their lessons over the last seven weeks and I am so proud to see them growing into very independent learners. Also, everyone has been very welcoming to our new pupils and it has been lovely to see new friendships forming. To the great bunch I have in Class 5, have a lovely, restful and fun half term and I will see you all on Monday 30th J

Autumn Week 6

Another fab week for class 5! The weeks are flying by!

We have been focusing on propaganda used in World War two for our English work this week.  The children have been thinking hard about the choices made specifically to persuade people. For example; the slogans, colours, images and font. The children then designed their own propaganda poster for the campaign they had been working on. Finally, we looked at writing a persuasive text to accompany the posters. All children have worked exceptionally well to include persuasive devices, such as; exaggeration, rule of three and emotive language.

We have finally cracked long multiplication! All children have been working hard to learn this method and have practised their other numbers skills in a multitude of ways to show their understanding of multiplication and division. It also highlighted the gaps in our time table knowledge!

Just a quick reminder that next week 6 pieces of grid homework need to be in! Remember that each child should only be spending 20 - 30 minutes on one piece of work. On the grid, there is a variety of tasks that require different skills – choose wisely to suit the time and resources you have!

See you next week,

Week 4

This week Class 5 children have turned into scientists and have set up an ongoing experiment to see if different drinks will change the colour of chewing gum (our stand in for teeth!). The children have made some interesting predictions and have started making observations, which will carry on through the next week.

We’ve also been looking at some of London’s most famous landmarks and finding some great facts that have wowed us all – especially about the Shard and all the materials it is made out of!

Homework is also flooding in thick and fast but just a reminder that six pieces need to be handed in by the end of term.

See you Monday,

Miss Walker
