Year5

Amazing Addition and Subtraction Games

5MC absolutely loved their hook into their new Numeracy topic, addition and subtraction. They were set a carousel for three tasks: Miss Tom’s shop, mysterious mazes and wicked word problems. The children were able to show off the knowledge they already have in this subject and I was really impressed with how well they did!

Weekly Review – Thursday 21st September 2017

As school is closed tomorrow, the Weekly Review is appearing on a Thursday this week! This week has seen International Peace Day celebrated both in our school community and across the world – a huge thank you for the all of the donations that we received. The money will go to buying the three P’s for Peace (paper, pens and pencils). These will be donated to Sister Louise for use with their children and the refugee children.

In Literacy we have studied character and setting extracts from Percy Jackson. We identified what makes a good description (for example imagery and sensory passages), and also examined grammatical techniques (adjectives, fronted adverbials, clauses). Children will preparing to write a battle scene next week and thinking about how they can effectively end their myth.

In Numeracy, we have enjoyed the hook element of Addition and subtraction, enabling children and teachers to identify what children are currently capable of (and therefore ensure the learning over the coming weeks fits their individual and class needs). This was followed by skills lessons on mental and written addition. We will continue with subtraction next week, before moving on to applying these skills.

In Humanities this week we continued to examine two of the main Greek city-states of Athens and Sparta. The children have used their research to plan a persuasive piece of writing about one of the two city states.

In Science, we have continued our learning about Isaac Newton and his theory of gravity, using Newton meters to investigate this. Our Art vases and pots have now been made! We used our thumbs, followed by coils of clay which were then carefully blended together to avoid cracks. The children have produced some brilliant work and we will now wait for them to dry so they are ready for the kiln.

Many Thanks,

    The Year 5 Team

5CH learn about Newton Meters

In Science today, 5CH learnt all about Newton meters and how they can measure the force needed to move an object. We measured the forces for many objects in the science lab and found that Periscopes needed a lot of force to move them. Now we are starting to learn about friction and how that affects the force that is required to move objects.

Weekly Review – Friday 15th September 2017

Another  fantastic week has flown by in Year 5 as the excitement builds towards Ancient Greek Day!

Thank you to all the parents and children for being organised with blazers for the school photos. We all looked very smart! Additionally, on a personal note, it was a pleasure talking to all the Parent Class Representatives this week. We shared key dates and ideas, and hope that we can forge even closer links to best meet the needs of your selves and your children going forward.

In Literacy we have studied character and setting extracts from Percy Jackson. We identified what makes a good description (for example imagery and sensory passages), and also examined grammatical techniques (adjectives, fronted adverbials, clauses). Children will begin mapping a text next week with a view to writing their very own myths.

In Numeracy, we have been continuing to investigate number and place value. This week has seen the children have a go at a variety of Greek based challenges, thinking carefully about using the skills taught and collaborating in small groups. Finally, children have created their own number and place value challenges to apply their knowledge to real life situations. We will be moving on to addition and subtraction next week.

In Humanities this week we began to examine two of the main Greek city-states of Athens and Sparta. Even though they are from the same time period, they led very different lives and had very different values.

In Science we learned about Force, and how Newton meters can be used to measure force in Newtons. Our Art vase planning is now complete. The next stage will be making the clay pots, so please just check that all of your children have brought in an apron!

Many Thanks,

    The Year 5 Team

Place Value in the Underworld!

This week in Numeracy, the children have been perfecting their place value knowledge. They were able to cooperate well to solve the various problems that were in front of them. It was great to see all of the children applying their skills and methods they have learned over the last few weeks when solving the challenges!
