Welcome back Year 5. I hope that you have all had a lovely break over Christmas. I am very excited to get back to work and see what we can achieve in 2020.
I hope that you are very excited to start our new topics, we will be learning lots about the Romans and about properties of materials in science.
We will also begin work on fractions in maths, whilst continuing to discover more about Robinson Crusoe’s diary.
See you all soon!
I hope you have had a wonderful half-term and you are ready to get back to work. Our new topic for science is forces and our new R.E unit is all about ‘making a difference’.
I am really looking forward to this next half-term and I hope lots of you have made progress with your homework projects, I can’t wait to see them!
See you on Monday!
Here are the 10 flags we have been looking at in our knowledge lessons.
Can you name the country and the continent?
We have started this year the way we mean to go on, with lots of hard work and crammed-packed days.
In English, we have been looking at a text called ‘A clever way to catch a thief’ and within this, we have be learning all about modal verbs. Can you remember what a modal verb is? Can you use one in a sentence?
In maths we have been doing lots of column addition and column subtraction. Plus, we have been working hard on reading very large numbers.
We had a really fun topic launch and we have already learnt a lot about the Vikings. Can you tell me what you already know? You could even link it to our knowledge lessons about flags of the world.
I was really pleased with some of the planet fact files that you completed. Would you like to share some of the great facts that you have found out about our solar system ?
This has already been cram- packed week and it is only Tuesday! We visited Ranby House school today for a safety zone event. I had a great day and I hope that you all did too! What was your favourite part and what have you learnt?
You have been doing lots of work on regular and irregular polygons, who can tell me the difference between them?
This week, our blog post is all based around our R.E topic. We are studying the Islamic faith and we have learnt many new facts.
Can anyone tell me something that they have learnt this week in R.E? Try to use the correct vocabulary when describing the clothing that they wear.
As an added point, don’t forget our science knowledge about reproduction in plants and the life cycles of amphibians. We will be adding to this knowledge later on in the week. Maybe you could set each other a few quiz questions in the comments to help?
We have been working really hard this week on some new vocabulary in science.
Can anyone explain what these words mean?
Head, thorax and abdomen.
Try your own brain dump.
I hope that everyone is having a fantastic bank holiday weekend.
Last week was a full week of brain dumps. How about testing yourself to see how much you can remember.
Here are suggested ‘brain dump’ topics for you to try.
Reproduction in plants
Complaint letter (cohesion in paragraphs)
I would love for you to comment all of the things that you have remembered.
Why not give this quiz a go. See how much you can remember. http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/plants/flowers.htm
I hope that you have had a great Easter holiday so far.It is not long until we begin our final term of the academic year. We have some very exiting things coming up and we will begin our new topics!
I would love to know what you have all been up to over the holidays?
See you all soon 🙂
We have concluded our poetry unit this week by writing our very own poems about lots of monstrous animals. You have written some wonderful things Year 5. Would anyone like to comment one of the metaphors that they have used in their poem?
This has been a really busy week, filled with some exciting things. I hope everyone enjoyed their extended Golden time this afternoon. You all deserved it for working so hard on your homework projects. An extra congratulations to the winners across school, you will really enjoy lunch with leaders.
Next week, we have some more exciting things coming up, starting with a Roman day on Monday. I can’t wait to see your outfits.
Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
