5RK Visit The Mercy Centre

Today 5RK visited the Mercy Centre as party of our Charity Enterprise topic. The children created educational activities based on ‘animals’ and taught the children all about them. We really enjoyed helping each other but also learning about everything the Mercy Centre has achieved!

5RW visit the Mercy Centre

 

As part of our Charity work, 5RW visited the Mercy Centre. The children had a great day and were able to teach small groups of 5 year old children different English words by playing a variety of games with them. The class prepared all of their own games and resources and were an absolute credit to Shrewsbury throughout the day. Well done 5RW!

5AW visit 1JO

As part of our preparations for the Mercy Centre Visit, 5AW visited 1JO to teach them some English using the resources we have prepared. Most groups organised themselves extremely well, and delivered entertaining and informative activities. There were some learning points as well! When seeking feedback from Year 1’s, it was wonderful that so many of them felt that they had learnt something new, and also enjoyed the experience.

Weekly Review, Friday 12th May

Thank you for your support with today’s Non-Uniform Day. It was great to see all of your  donations that help the charities we support as a school.

In Literacy this week, we have been ‘boxing up’ and writing our newspaper reports based on the story ‘The Mystery Of Ms.Brown’ which tied in nicely with our hook from Term 2b. The children will then edit and improve their reports using the success criteria form the checklist.

In Maths, we have moved onto Geometry again, this time with the focus of manipulating shapes and patterns. Our enquiry question is ‘ How can we represent a shape or pattern in different ways?’ We will be studying translation, tessellation rotation, symmetry and reflection. We will also review area and perimeter and 3D nets as a focus.

In Humanities this week, we have designed and created activities for the children at the Mercy Centre. Thinking carefully about our ‘Charity Enterprise’ topic. We worked in teams to design simple activities that are age related. We also have been researching charities in detail to help build our knowledge and understanding.

In Science, we are moving onto our new topic – ‘Materials and their properties’. First we created a mind map with all of our prior knowledge and discussed scientific vocabulary we needed to focus on. Next week, we plan to sort materials using their properties.

In Art, we have continued to focus on shade – sketching pictures of crime scene evidence on large art paper and painting them, adding shading and texture. Some of these will be displayed in the corridor as part of our Daring Detectives work.

 

Notes:

Balloon Debate – The Balloon Debate final will take place on Wednesday 24th May at 1pm. We are very excited to see the presentations of each candidate and wish them good luck!

Trip: This half term we have planned a trip to visit our charity partner, The Mercy Centre. Each class will visit on a different day. Please return medical forms by Thursday 11th May. This trip is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn about the charity and to support it by teaching their children English. Over the coming weeks, the children will be designing a game to share at the centre, working collaboratively in a small group.

The dates for this visit are:

5CH      Thursday 18th May

5AW     Friday 19th May

5RW     Monday 22nd May

5RK      Tuesday 23rd May

5LB         Wednesday 24th May

Finally, a reminder about the long term project. All details are available on Firefly.

The dates for submission are: Task 1 – Research – Due 15th May

Task 2 – Contact – Due  1st June

Task 3 – Support – Due 19th June

Have a great weekend.

Many thanks

5RK Detective Puzzle Books With 4GA

As part of our challenge for our Maths enquiry, we created puzzle books based on place value and adding and subtracting. We wrote word problems as well as variety of rounding, decimal and missing number problems. 4GA really enjoyed solving the problems and we learned a lot from evaluating our work and how we would improve the booklets next time.

5AW Crime Scene Art

We have been working hard on our painting skills this week, blending to create tints and shades and therefore create a sense of depth. I have been both pleased and impressed with the effort applied by the children, in addition to observing many of them challenge themselves by sketching the objects from real life. We would love to hear any of your comments!

Weekly Review Friday 5th May

Friday 5th May

Thank you for your support with today’s Speech Day. The children looked very smart in their blazers and sang beautifully. Our guest of honour was Reverend Henry Corbett, who showed the children a magical card trick and told them some important stories with the message that we should all help each other. Mr. Holroyd echoed this in his opening speech, where he reminded children that we should give gifts for the right reasons. These messages are good examples for our new topic, Charity Enterprise.

In Literacy this week, we have been focusing on questioning. Using Bloom’s taxonomy questions, we have challenged ourselves to a higher level of thinking. The children read a number of texts and then answered some tricky questions which tested their comprehension, analysis, understanding and application skills. Also, we have been writing newspaper reports, remembering the mysterious disappearance of Mrs. Brown.

In Maths, we have been learning all about time. Solving tricky problems about time tables; adding amounts of time; converting between hours, minutes and seconds; and calculating elapsed time. We have also solved calendar problems and recapped the number of days in each month – very important knowledge.

In Humanities this week, we have continued with our work on 4 figure grid references. We used our skills to complete an exciting QR code hunt all around the school. The groups raced (quietly) around school to find each clue, reading the grid reference to find their way.

In Science, we have begun to plan an investigation into pulse rate. The children have worked in teams to choose a question to investigate as well as an activity to help them to raise their pulse rate. We will soon be writing predictions, methods and conclusions using scientific vocabulary.

In art, we have continued to focus on shade – sketching pictures of crime scene evidence on large art paper and painting them, adding shading and texture. Some of these will be displayed in the corridor as part of our Daring Detectives work.

Trip: This half term we have planned a trip to visit our charity partner, The Mercy Centre. Each class will visit on a different day. Please return medical forms by Thursday 11th May. This trip is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn about the charity and to support it by teaching their children English.
