Spring Term Journey
During our 'WOW day', Year 5 helped surgeons by performing surgery on a patient. They all did a fantastic job and repaired the body so that all organs were in the correct place in the body. At the end of the day, all surgeons had to take a surgical exam. All surgeons passed their graduation with flying colours.
Here are our 'Surgeons of the year'!
We have been enjoying Sharp Lane's weekly PE challenges.
This week the challenge was 'how many squat jumps can you do in 30 seconds?'
Our current record is 32!
Challenge: Can you beat the record?....It is harder than it looks....
Year 5 Christmas Song
We had a fantastic crafts day! We painted calendars, decorated wreaths and stars and completed Makaton actions to our Year song 'Rudolf the Red Nose Day.'
Stay tuned for our Makaton song.....
New Learning Alert
We have been very busy since we have been back at school. We have taken part in numerous activities including art days, inter-house competitions and lots of fun topic activities!
Children in Need
For Children in Need, we participated in fun sporting activities. We competed against other classes in Year 5. We also dressed up to raise money for Children in Need. To continue with our competition, we took part in a zoom quiz!
For our Mayan topic, we designed and created fantastic headdresses. From our topic lessons, we discovered that rulers of each city wore a headdress (some were even taller than them). We used our knowledge of the rulers, to carefully select materials and paints for our headdresses.
We have consolidated our place value knowledge and have worked on addition and subtraction skills. After half term, we completed a unit on statistics.
We have written a range of genres including: non-chronological reports about rainforests, myths and an informal letter. We have looked carefully at different features for each genre and worked on these in the sequence of lessons following up to the big write.
In Year 5 we have been looking at adverts. We created our own chocolate bar adverts. We used our reading book 'The Chocolate Tree' for inspiration.
We created some fab ideas and even sent them to Cadburys world. Hopefully our ideas will be coming to a supermarket shelf real soon!
Take a look at our work....
This half term, we are going on a journey to meet a tribe! We will be discovering information about this tribe and researching their achievements!
Homework will be handed out on Monday and collected in on Friday. There will be a spelling test at the end of each week.
Reading Book and Record
Please ensure you send your child to school with their reading book and record each day.
Your child must come to school with a water bottle each day. They should then take it home and wash it ready for the following school day.
PE will take place every Tuesday for all Year 5 classes. Children should come to school wearing their PE kit on this day. They will stay in PE kit all day and do not need to bring their uniform.
