On the first day of Christmas....

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

This week in Polar and Birch class, we have begun our advent calendar, with children get fun treats and things to do! I hope they are enjoying the little surprises. We have also begun the Elf Kick, 12 days of Christmas being active for 1 minute with a different activity a day. We had fun completing a Science experiment, testing the absorbancy of nappies (Poplar calss decided Morrisons are the best) and they are working on their collages that will hopefully be finidhed this week.

Below are some pictures of our Science work. 

This weeks spellings are tricky it is adding able. Children need to know whether to swap, double or drop the letter before adding able. Bubt some of the words don't fit the pattern. For example misery, you drop the y and only add able (in other examples you swap the y for an i). These are the last spelling of this half term:

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.

Mrs N and Mr J
