Welcome to Year 5!
World Book Day 2019
We have had a fantastic response to World Book Day in Year 5. The children have created their own characters, described them and designed book covers.
Science Week 2019
This week, in Year 5, we have taken part in science week.
We have learnt a new science fact every day and we have looked at the systems of the human body, paying particular attention to the circulatory system. We participated in an experiment involving measuring our heart rate and investigating which exercise caused our heart rate to increase the most. As well as this, we what an amazing muscle the heart is. To make things even more exciting, real pig hearts were available for us to dissect and discuss, we were all looking forward to getting our hands on the hearts as you can see by our pictures.
We’ve had a great first term in Year 5.
In January we will publish a book of Greek myth adventures. The children have worked hard at writing, critiquing and editing their stories. Before the end of term we will complete the art work to illustrate them.
We are lucky to be part of a project run by the Young Journalist Academy this year. The children have been really inspired by this project and are starting to produce some interesting articles. One of our news desks has published their first article, which is now live on the Young Journal Academy website.
For Remembrance we created a class poem and a field of poppies freeze. We shared both during our Remembrance service in the village church.
Ancient Greek Day
We had a fabulous history day at the village hall, dressed in costumes whilst immersing ourselves in the daily life of the ancient Greeks.
Leader in Me
This term we are putting first things first and thinking win-win. This means that we always do what we have to do before doing what we want to do. We are developing our skills as problem solvers and trying to think about what others want not just what we want.
This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.
Homework is given out on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday. It will consist of a piece of English and Maths work which will consolidate your learning from the week.
Spellings are also given out and the test will be the following Friday.
Keep practising your times tables. You need to be confident with all times tables up to 12 x 12.
Remember to read regularly and record this in your reading record. If you read at least 5 times every week and your record has been signed by an adult for each entry you will be awarded a house point.
My Style homework is also given out each term.
