Apple week

This week we have continued our multiplication work but some of us have been looking at ‘real life maths’ using our RUCSAC method. What does this stand for? Can you think of a real life maths question for everyone to answer?

Last week was ‘apple week’ in school so we made apple muffins. They were extremely delicious. Can anyone remember all of the ingredients that we used?

In the upcoming week, we are going to be working on our independent pieces of writing for our mystery and suspense sequence. I can’t wait to read your great stories. Does anyone want to share their ideas in the comments below?

John Dougherty.

We have had another fun packed week this week.

In maths we have been doing some great multiplication skills. working on 2D by 2D multiplication.
Can anyone work this question out?
34 x 65 =

We have also made mnemonics about the planets in our solar system. Would anyone like to comment their fun mnemonic which helps them remember the position of the planets in our solar system?

We had a trip to the library this week and it was so fun to meet the author, John Dougherty. Lots of you purchased one of his books, I hope you are having great fun reading them.

I look forward to another great week next week. Our learn its for the upcoming week are 9×6, 9×7 and 9×9, get practising everyone! πŸ™‚

Welcome Back Year 5!

What a fantastic first full week back we have had.
We have started our first English unit which is called ‘A clever way to catch a thief’. We have done a reciprocal reading session on the extract and have clarified some tricky words. Can anyone remember the definitions for these words?

We have also begun our science topic which is Earth and Space. Can anyone tell me a fact that they have learnt in our science lessons so far? Think about the planets in our solar system and the definition of gravity.

On Thursday it was Roald Dahl day and we completed some really fun activities, which included popping candy science with Mr Willy Wonka and using descriptive language to describe our very own giant from the BFG.

I am very much looking forward to the upcoming term and I know we will have lots of fun together. Keep up the hard work Everyone!

Busy Bees!!

Wow, what a busy week we have had this week.

On Tuesday, we went on a trip to Clumber Park where we did activities such as pond dipping and bird watching. We had a great time and we almost managed to keep everyone dry. Can you remember any of the animals that we saw?
On Wednesday, we had our sports day and everyone did so well. You should all be really proud of yourselves, well done to all teams.
On Thursday we had a great workshop where we made our very own comic strip story and used press printing machinery. Would anyone like to comment what their ideas for the comic? or what their favourite part of the day was?

I am looking forward to another very busy week next week πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work Year 5!

Welcome back!

Welcome back to the final half term of year 5! EEK!

Our new Adventurer’s diary sequence is a really fun one. You all had some great ideas about writing our own diary entry. Can anyone remember some words we needed to clarify?

In maths we have been working on shape. We have looked at 3D nets and made our very own dice. Can you remember what opposite sides of a dice must add up to?

I look forward to another very busy week and lots of play practise.

A Royaly good time.

Hello Everyone!

I hope you have had a fantastic weekend!
Last week was a little different because year 6 were doing their SATS. Thank you for being really patient and extremely quiet whilst we moved our classroom into the hall.

Although last week was a little bit different, we still did some very exciting things. It was our last swimming session and it was an extremely fun one. What was your favourite part?
We have done some great work on parenthesis in English AND we had a Royaly good day on Friday (see what I did there?)

I hope you all enjoyed your posh picnic in the sun and celebrating the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

I am looking forward to another great week this week. Don’t forget that Billy Bob Buttons is coming to pay us a visit tomorrow! How exciting πŸ™‚
