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,

Autumn Week 3

What another great week in Class 5!

In English this week, we have been practising our storytelling and performance skills. The children worked in small groups to retell the story of Perseus and the Gorgon Medusa. It was great to see so many children taking on different roles and using facial expressions to help bring their story to life. There was also some clear narration from the children, which allowed the audience to follow what was going on. They really enjoyed this and I am so proud of their growing confidence when performing in front of others.

We have also been practising our sewing skills in DT in preparation for our cushion covers. The children are becoming far more independent in threading their needles, sorting out any mistakes and being adventurous with their designs. We are in need of any material you may have lying around that can be cut up and used on their final designs – any donations welcome!

Homework has been coming in thick and fast and I am amazed at the effort the children are putting in.  Just a reminder that 6 pieces off the grid must be handed in by half term!

Finally, just a quick note to say how difficult it is getting to choose children for badge awards and the golden chair – everyone is working extremely hard and I wish I could pick more of you at a time!

Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget swimming kits on Monday!
