18.7.20

Well done everyone - we have made it to the end of the school year! Who would have believed that when you left us in March that the end of our year would be the way it was. Thank you so much to our extended teaching team - our parents, siblings and grandparents - who have supported the children through this difficult period. 

 

It was lovely to see some of you back in school or on Zoom for our brief transition sessions.  We are looking forward to welcoming you back in September and have loads of exciting new topics planned for you. Before then, we wish you all a great summer whether you are staying close to home or managing to get away somewhere.

Take care and stay safe everyone.

With love from Mrs Hoare, Mrs Ellis and Mrs Stocks. x

Hello children and parents!

 

I hope you've had a productive week. What shame we had more rain this week! This week it was Summer Stephenson who was awarded the Perseverance band in our key worker group. Well done Summer!

 

For Maths next week we are continuing with our Oak Academy lessons. This week is all about volume:  Do one lesson each day.

Click this link to access the lessons:

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/subjects/maths

 

 

Monday: Lesson 1 Read scales

Tuesday: Lesson 2: Investigate cubed numbers

Wednesday: Lesson 3: Estimate volume

Thursday: Lesson 4 : Describe volume in cubic units

Friday: Lesson 5: Convert units of volume

 

For those of you who like a challenge I'm including some extra capacity based tasks for you! Capacity is the volume taken up by liquids. You can use equipment you have at home. You will need a measuring jug. Remember 1 litre = 1000 millilitres.

1) investigate which mug in the cupboard has the largest volume: Now you know which one to use for your next drink of hot chocolate! More room for the cream and marshmallows!

2) Find a cereal bowl. Find the volume of the bowl by filling it with water. Now carefully pour the water into the empty measuring jug and read the scale. What is the volume of your cereal bowl?

3) Look at the milk bottle you have in the fridge. What is the volume in litres? Now pour the amount of milk you usually have on your cereal into the cereal bowl. Transfer it to the empty measuring jug to find the volume of the milk you have in your cereal.

4) Find other bottles such as shampoo, squash, tomato sauce and pop. Order the bottles from greatest to smallest based on the capacity in litres of ml which they contain. Why do you think the largest bottle is so big?

5) Now choose one of the bottles. Can you redesign the label for it on a piece of paper? Can you make the writing bolder and more interesting? Maybe you want to add more colour or pictures to the design...

 

 

 

 

 

6.7.20 Extra capacity based questions

Spellings week beginning 6th July Year 5

For the remaining few weeks of this term the words we will be looking at are those we have covered throughout the year. Instead of learning a pattern, we are looking to see if you can remember the patterns.

The words for this week are:

ancient             apparent            amateur     appreciate   attached

Day 1Sounding out: Copy the words into your exercise book and dot and dash them. Dot for one letter that makes one sound, dash for a sound made with more than one letter. For the silent letter – put nothing!

Do you know what the words mean? If you have a dictionary look them up and write the definition in your book. If no dictionary look online.

Day 2 –Sounds: What part of the word would be tricky to learn? Can you highlight these so you can remember them?

Day 3 –Dictation Can you get someone to put a word in a sentence and then read it for you to write?

Day 4 – Go on purple mash and complete spelling quiz Summer 2, week 5, day 1.  It will be a 2Do task.

Day 5 – Get someone in your house to test you on your spellings. Email me your score.

Remember the headings:

Equipment

Method (what you did)

Results (what happened)

The Lego Story

Watch the film Lego Story - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdDU_BBJW9Y&t=2s

Lesson 1 and 2

Answer the questions based on the film Lego story – there are lots so do it over two sessions. The questions are on the attached document.

Session 3

You are going to write a report on how Lego was invented.

Writing your report. What do we need to think about when we write?

1.) The subject- What will your title be? Can you write a brief introduction to it? Can you use rhetorical questions?

2.) What tense will it be written in?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-52103967             https://time.com/5813044/llandudno-goats/

What a fantastic news story!  We could use this to inspire us- I thought I might write a story based on it. Other options could be to do a drawing of one of the goats. Maybe you could write your own newspaper report on the events or perhaps create a fact file all about these mountain goats. 

If you'd like to email any of the work you do to our school office I might be able to get it onto our website for all to share!

Do you know what the words mean? If you have a dictionary look them up and write the definition in your book. If no dictionary look online.

Day 2 –Word Changers We can add the suffix “ly” to the end of these words. It changes the word from a verb to an adjective. Does the spelling of the word change?

ambitious – ambitiously. Add suffixes to the words – can you think of any other words ending in ious? Write them in your book.

Day 3 –Dictation Get someone to read this passage to you and write it in your book.

I was cautious as I entered the cave due to it being very dark.

Try to eat a range of foods to ensure you have a nutritious diet.

Day 4 – Go on purple mash and complete spelling quiz Spring 1 week 2

Day 5 – Get someone in your house to test you on your spellings. Email me your score.

Throughout the week look at the statutory spellings in your planner.

Pick 2/3 a week to be learning. Practice these in your exercise book.

5.12.19

Both Year 5 classes have now completed the first of two sessions discussing pedestrian safety. This is such an important area as our pupils prepare to become increasingly independent. We will complete our training next week.

3.12.19

Thank you to all the parents and carers who were able to attend our Learning Assembly. We shared some of our literacy and art work before completing a number of activities relating to our history topic. 

We are learning about forces in science. We planned and carried out an experiment into air resistance.

2.12.19

Over the next fortnight we will be focusing on spellings with a silent t such as whistle and castle.

In maths, we are moving onto looking at the perimeter and area of regular and irregular shapes.

Please can you continue to try hard in your related homework tasks as we head towards the end of a long and busy term. Thank you.

5SE: On Children in Need Day in ICT, we used coding skills to create our own Pudsey inspired programmes

11.11.19

We are spending another week thinking about homophones. This week we are learning: morning, mourning, aisle, isle, bridal, bridle, ascent and assent. Make sure you know the meanings of these words and demonstrate your knowledge by writing them into sentences in your homework books please.

Our statutory words this week are: relevant, convenience, familiar and government.

Do you know what a squared number is? Does this picture help? Can you explain what it is to someone else?

Year 5 did a great job of leading our Remembrance service in school today. Rhys had written a beautiful poem for homework which he read aloud and the poppies we painted look spectacular.

We are proud of our War letters which we wrote in Literacy. We wrote as a soldier writing home to his family, describing what it was like in the trenches of WW1. Sketch by Neveah, Letters by Jenna and Jorja

Effective characteristics of learning.

4.11.19

In Maths this week we are learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers and solving puzzles relating to these. You'll find it much quicker to complete this work if you know your times tables facts (and the related division facts) really well. Remember that the Times Tables Rockstars competition is well underway and our two Year 5 classes are both performing well - perhaps you could spend a few minutes now working on this.

 

We are all looking at homophones in our spelling sessions (e.g. stationery, stationary, cereal, serial, father, farther, great, grate, heard, herd, steal, steel). We need to know the meanings of these words in order to ensure that we use the correct ones in our own writing.

Our high frequency words are: eight, twelve and thousand. Our statutory words are: hindrance, identity and sufficient.

Let's see who can score full marks this week and get their name added to our 'star spellers' board.

We hope everyone has a brilliant half-term break. We have all worked really hard so far this year so this week off is well deserved. Enjoy spending time with your families and if you take part in any Halloween or Bonfire night events remember what we learnt on our Safety Rangers Day and stay safe.

We look forward to seeing your projects relating to our history topic when we return in November. Have fun!

Half-term Homework

Our trip to the University (23rd October)

Safety Rangers. Wednesday 16th October

On Wednesday we went to the Fire Station where we took part in a number of workshops to inform us about how to stay safe. We learnt about fire safety, road safety, the police service and how to look after our emotional health and well-being. It was very informative and we all enjoyed it.

Some examples of 5SE's finished Space paintings. Mixed Media including pastel, paint, pen and crayon to create these dynamic,bold images.

7.10.19

Having learnt the -ible spelling pattern we are now working on the -able pattern. How many words can you think of that have this spelling pattern? How many of those words can you add a prefix too?

In Art we have been using a range of media to practice ideas for a space picture. Below we have a splatter paint and chalk background and two felt tip rockets.

We've been delighted with how well everyone is doing with their weekly homework tasks. Well done for getting into the routine of bringing your homework books (along with your brass instruments) in on a Monday morning.

Our maths homework links closely to our new maths topic this week - addition and subtraction. So the extra work you are doing at home will no doubt feed into great progress in class.

We're always thrilled to see any additional tasks you have undertaken at home too. We love to celebrate your success so bring in those art projects and sporting certificates. We're also more than willing to sample your baked goods - 5SE loved India's space themed biscuits on Monday. Thank you.

 

23.9.19

Well done with our previous spelling rule - there have been some great scores in our weekly spelling tests so far.

Our new spelling rule involves the letter combination - ible. We have discussed words such as sensible, visible and incredible. How many more words are there with this spelling combination.

Our high frequency words are: why and friends. Remember....i to the end will be your friend!

Our TT Rockstars Battle of the Bands is underway. 5HH have made a fantastic start and are creeping ahead of 5SE on the leader board. Let's not allow it to stay that way 5SE. If everyone plays for 10 minutes a couple of times a week we're going to have a great contest. Good Luck to both classes.

Read and enjoy our newsletter. It tells you what we'll be doing this term!

We were very excited to start our brass lessons with Mr Brown this week. Once we have returned our signed forms to school we will be bringing our instruments home to practice. Remember, these instruments must come back into school every Monday please.

In maths we are learning about Roman Numerals.

In science we area learning about our Solar System. 5SE worked together to make a model of it in the playground.

9.9.19

Over the next two weeks we will be focusing on learning spellings which contain silent letters (specifically b). These are some examples: comb, limb, debt and subtle. Can you think of any others?

We are also learning high frequency words and statutory words from the Y5/6 spelling lists. This week we are learning something, important, accommodate, accompany and according

Welcome to Year 5!
