On Friday Mrs Ashby and Mr Pask (from Barclays) paid us a visit. They came to talk to Year 5 about a national programme called 'Money Skills'. The children completed lots of activities to develop and improve their financial skills,knowledge and confidence.
Welcome to Year 5. Your teachers this year will be Mrs Woolley on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Mrs Farrington on Tuesdays. We will also have Mrs Kearns working with us every morning.
We will be using the library on Thursdays and you will need your P.E. kit on Thursdays and Fridays.
Homework, of reading, spelling and mental maths, will be coming home on Mondays and be given in on Fridays. Don't forget to keep an eye on 'Show My Homework'.
We worked hard to save Fred the gummy worm who had, rather unfortunately, fallen out of his boat (cup). We could only use paper clips, not our hands, to pick him up and put on his jelly rubber ring. Teamwork was the 'word of the day'.
It was hard work and often frustrating.
But we succeeded. Hooray!!
We have been reading lots of Ancient Greek Myths. We enjoyed creating freeze-frames of the story of Pandora's Box. They were so good that we were easily able to guess each scene.
We made Greek pots using the pinch pot method.
We also researched different patterns used by the Ancient Greeks and used them to design our pots.
We LOVE fractions, especially when we use Smarties!!!
We had to work out what fraction of the box each colour was.
We worked in groups to prepare for a debate about whether it would be better to live in Athens or Sparta.
Who was the most persuasive?
We enjoyed our trip to the cinema.
We have enjoyed writing play-scripts this week.
Have a look at us acting out our scripts.
The Ice Cream Man has been with some weird and wonderful flavours!
Are you enjoying that?
Please sir ....
What is that flavour?
Can you guess what flavour it is?
Tom and Julia came in from Stagecoach to help us bring the rainforest to life in an exciting drama workshop.
An example of our fantastic sketches of a rainforest scene, based on the work of Henri Rousseau.
Today we focused on mixing various shades of green for our leaves using the primary colours blue and yellow. Didn't we do well?
An amazing rainstorm in the rainforest by Y5 and Y6.
Our marvellous, magical, mature Year 5s helped Year 1 on their special fundraising CAFOD fun afternoon. Thank you Year 5.
Raucous Rugby Fun!
We spent the day solving problems using our positive Growth Mindset skills. It was hard work but lots of fun.
James and Emily both had a glass of water to taste. They both looked exactly the same but one was a solution of water and sugar. The sugar had dissolved into the water.
Would you like some water?
We tested different substances to see if they were soluble in water.
It was GREAT fun!
Year Five Poetry Recital
Enjoy four examples of the poetry that Year 5 shared this morning. They were all great and the children had put a lot of effort into learning them by heart.
