Sports Day on Friday was great this year. Perfect conditions and I was super impressed with the children’s attitude and sportsmanship; the behaviour of children was exemplary, as it has been all year. It is the first time I can remember at a Sports day that not one of them needed to go to the loo! Anyway Arts week this week and a class assembly to organise for the school, another busy week ahead! One of the children managed to take a few photos on the class ipad so I have added!
Great start to the week with our trip to Stanpit and the surrounding area. The children seemed to enjoy it and we were so lucky with the weather too. Great behaviour as usual and very sensible and mature pupils, well done all! Thanks to all the adults who helped, I need a lie down! Photos attached!
Not much to report this week. Yesterday we had the road safety crew in and with traffic going to be very busy over the next month with staycations, I ask children to be particulalry careful on the roads! On Monday we are going on our visit to Stanpit and the local area. At the time of writing the weather does not look good, so a decision will be made at some point. The trip will still go ahead but possibly at a later date. I have just asked the children if there is anything else to report and they said no!
This week has been a quiet week so far but I am writing on Thursday rather than the Friday! In maths we are now working on area of 2D shapes and we have started a Music/Playscript mini topic on Shakespeare’s play Macbeth. In RE we have been producing art based on our creation unit and in science we have been looking at evidence to show how we know the Earth is round!
An early post this week because we have been African drumming today. We had a lot of fun too! We are also fortunate to have a new iPad in the classroom so hopefully a few photos will appear!
Great start to the second half of the summer term. A newsletter should appear shortly explaining all things happening this half of term. This week we have been looking at the introduction of the HG Wells book ‘War of the Worlds’ and children will start newspaper reports next week. We are currently looking at units of time and temperature in maths. Next week we start our Earth and Space topic. Just a reminder that homework will appear on-line on Mondays and Thursdays!
This week we have been investigatring mass in mathematcis. We have also started an information text on a mythical dangerous creature. In science we have been looking at friction and children had great fun making ‘blow vehicles.’
We have just started Y5 end of year assessments and we will be continuing these next week. A reminder chil;dren have brought home new reading diaries to take them up to the end of the term. Please bring them in once you have had 20 reads for a bronze award!
This week we have been looking at measurements of length e.g. cm, mm, m and Km. In science children have been observing water resistance. We have also looked at British values and the concepts of tolerance and democracy. This week, as usual, all the children have made great contributions but I have been really pleased with the working partnership between Noah and Alfie, well done both of them for working diligently this week.
