Year 5 Blog

December is nearly here!

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

In year 5 this week we have been working on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We have worked hard on using the correct langauge to describe what happens to the numbers. In Literacy, we are writing diaries as if we are Vikings heading for battle. Collaging is beginning this week in art - I am excited to see the outcomes of this. 

As December approaches, we have lots of little surprises in year 5 to try and bring a bit of Christmas spirit into what has been a crazy and challenging year! We hope the children enjoy it!

Thank you for those that have returned the Robinwood letter - the deadline is today (27th November) any issues, please get in touch. 

This weeks spelling are from the year 3/4 National Curriulum words that we sent home last half term; we will be testing the children on the entire list in a couple of weeks time. 


Have a good weekend.

Spellings this week!

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

We have completed another week and we are creeping closer and closer to the Christmas period. At the moment, we are trying to help the children get to grips with Google Classroom, our online learning platform - this is NOT homework although they may want to log on and try some activities. Please still use Mirodo for homework.

We just want to say a massive thank you to all of you for being so patient and understanding so far this year. The spellings this week can be found below and they will follow the rule of 'words ending in -ible'.











Have a lovely weekend!

Happy Friday

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

Well done on another week! 
Nearly all the children have completed our Science baking activity, we have worked on irreversible changes - why not have a tasty treat too! Those that haven't completed the task yet will next week. Our year 5 break out areas is looking brilliant with the childrens art projects, photos to come soon. 

In writing this week, we have learnt the phrases, expanded noun phrase, prepositional phrase and relative clause - a mouthful I'm sure you will agree - we will be continuing to use these grammar terms next week. In maths we have been investigating prime numbers, square number and cubed numbers - the children have worked really hard on this and I am really pleased. 

For homework this week, we would like it fi the children to practise logging onto google classrooms and have a go completing a task on there. This is our new online learning platform we have been trying out in class this week - more information will be sent home once we have ironed out the details. For now, passwords are in yur child's planner, please encourage them to have a play around. 

Our art focus is collaging - more on that as the children progress! 

We are continuing to work on the year 3/4 National Curriculum words (a list was send home with your child's settling in summary) for this weeks spellings we have chosen 10 that we could use in our Viking writing next week. See these below. 











As always, please contact us on the year 5 email if you would like to speak to us, or have any questions. 

Have a lovely weekend.

Autumn 2

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

Happy First Week!

Welcome back to all of the children, it has been a busy first week, but lovely to get back into the swing of things. This half term in year 5, we really want to continue to explore all areas of the curriculum and try to hit all the childrens strengths! 

In Science this week and next, the children will be cooking (some already have), through this they will be showing their understanding of irreversible changes and how to use some science terms. We have created some art work with different media, they have chosen how to create their background from choices such as water colour or cryaon, taken pictures and edited with their photography skills and added some written facts (pictures to follow). 
In History and Geogrpahy we are learning about Scandinavia and The Vikings, our drawings of Viking Warriors definitely need some work but I am hoping all the children now know what a Monastery is! 

Maths has been tricky, we have been solving additon and subtraction problems but also applying skills from last half term such as rounding and the inverse. The children have been so determined, WELL DONE! 

In Literacy, we have been learning about noun phrases and prepositional phrases - we will continue to use thes terms. 

This weeks spellings - the silent letter b


Have a great weekend.

One Week To Go.

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

I cannot believe this half term is nearly over, it is incredible what can be achieved! 
In maths we have ought our way through place value and we are now applying those skills to addition and subtraction. Get practising those times tables because after half term we will be looking at multiplication and division. In literacy, we are ready to write all about Cornwall in our most formal and persuasive manner we can (commas included hopefully)! In art, we have practised sketching techniques ready for a portrait of a famous Scientist (different eh!). In RE, we have looked at covenants - this children found this hard, maybe see if hey know what one is and finally through Black History Month we have studied musicians and athletes and what they have been through to achieve what they have!

Really this is just the start! 

This weeks spellings:
