Class 5

Thursday 3rd December

This term is flying. I am writing after a great morning of maths! The children worked so hard and we managed to cram in so much. I was hugely impressed with their efforts. I think they need the day doing something more relaxing on Friday! Well done to Herbie, last week’s pupil of the week, I have been really impressed with his efforts in journaling and his singing in class is excellent! We have just completed a second Van Gogh study of the Starry Night and it is fantastic to see how their art work has come on since Y1. Next week we will be bridge building!

Friday 20th November

This week we have continued with the Highwayman in English and multiplication in maths. Please show your child the method you would use and see if you use the same. Your child should understand your way of working as they have looked at a variety of methods. This week pupil of the week goes to Summer-Rai. I am always so impressed with her presentation and her books look fantastic! Attached is a piccy from our Anti-bullying day!

Friday 13th November

This week we have been having fun solving problems in maths and we are continuing to work on multiplication methods. In English children are starting their reinventions of the poem ‘The Highwayman’ and in RE we have introduced the concept of pilgrimage. Olivia wrote a lovely piece on a trip to Paris and is this week’s pupil of the week, as long as she promises not to show me another play for a week or two with the gang of girls!

Friday 6th November

Great to see everyone safe and sound this week as we go into lockdown. Fortunately things are carrying on as usual here other than extra handwashing! This week we have been thinking about remembrance and children have been designing a remembrance garden. In English children have been introduced to the poem ‘The Highwayman’ and in maths we are working on multiplication. This week, Learner of the Week goes to Betsy for u;ltra speedy science research on Monday, well done Betsy!

Friday 23rd October

As I write, children have just returned home for a well deserved break. They have worked really hard over the last seven weeks and deserve the rest.

Last week Archie was recognised as pupil of the week for his hard work across all areas and this week a huge well done to Hannah who was one of a number of children to produced some great writing. Look forward to Monday week and seeing them after the half term!

Sunday 11th October

Loving teaching Year 5 at the moment. They work so well together and it gives me such great hope for the future generation of adults. Pupil of the week is so difficult because they all deserve recognition for their learning attitudes. However, this week it has been Daisy for all round effort and super work in P.E; great running and first girl home in the 2.6 mile challenge. Jaime has also been super speedy in class work the previous week so she is pupil of the week too. Her maths journaling was excellent. Looking forward to next week now and can’t wait to read their published robbery stories tomorrow!

Class 5

Friday 25th September

This week we have been rounding in maths. Children have also written the robbery scene from Oliver in English. Next week we will be innovating this scene and improving! Pupil of the Week for the last two weeks were Hattie and Chloe. They have been fantastic in so many ways. All the children in the class have been brilliant so far and all deserve recognition for their efforts. We had Golden Time this afternoon and some put on a play. Photo below!

Thursday 17th October

Children have worked so hard this week on a number of things. We have been unpicking the character of Fagin from ‘Oliver’ and we have also been outside making the most of the weather by tring to identify various trees from their leaves and bark. Children continue to work on place value in maths too! Some photos of them at work below!
