Welcome to Year 5
5LH - Miss Humphreys 5CK - Mrs Knight
Miss Childs Miss Rose Mrs Dine Mrs Hickley
Just a quick note to say....
We can’t believe this is the last term with the children in Year 5!
In Summer 2 we will be working extra hard to ensure we consolidate everything we have learnt already and prepare for the transition into Year 6.
Children will still need to ensure P.E kits are in school on Tuesdays this term.
In English this half term, we will we will be taking inspiration from the book Flotsam. We will be creating setting descriptions and writing a narrative to go with this wonderful picture book.
This week an unusual pair of suitcases arrived in our classroom.
Where did they come from?
Who did they belong to?
What was inside?
We explored the items in the suitcase to create a portal story.
Last week we got up and personal with items from the ocean.
Previously, year 5 explored flotsam and used their knowledge of what they found to discuss who they may have belonged to.
We will also be using our knowledge of water pollution to write a magazine article about ways we can support the charity Surfers Against Sewage.
As mathematicians this half term, we will be focusing on developing our understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages. We will use our understanding of these to answer two and three step problems.
We are still practicing our times tables and expect children to be logging on to Times Table Rock Stars to improve their recall speeds.
LET THE BATTLE COMMENCE!!!
5LH VS 5CK
19TH JUNE 2019
This week we have been looking at the life cycle of a plant. We dissected a plant to look at it's individual parts under a microscope before creating images to support our learning
This half term, we will be learning about rivers and mountains. We will be discovering fascinating facts about the water cycle and using this knowledge to create our own models of this process.
