'All Aboard' the Summer Term in Year 5
Click on the PDF below to view our latest Curriculum poster explaining what we have planned this term.
Well done for all of your hard work over the past 4 weeks, we are so impressed by each and every one of you. We hope you have a lovely Easter break! Fingers crossed for some good weather in whcih to get out and about and make some lovely spring time memories!
Your Easter holiday homework task is to make a kite. Details can be found on Google Classroom. I've popped some more information below, for those of you without access. Have fun!
As we have been reading The Kite Rider as our class read, this Easter your task is to create your own kite! You can make it in any way you like. I have included some instructions in the links below. Some of them are very simple and only need a couple of resources, others are more complex. Have a look with your grown ups and decide which one you will choose. Of course feel free yo use different instructions if you would prefer to.
We would love to see photos of your finished kites, or even better, action shots of them flying high!
🌻 Welcome Back! 🌷
We are delighted to welcome you back to school! We’ve had a lovely return to school, with plenty of collaborative learning, team challenges and lots of time spent immersed in the arts. Here are some snaps from our first week back, including some examples of our beautiful Mother’s Day activities.
'Winds of Change'
Welcome to our Spring Term topic which draws upon the history, literature and artwork associated with the Shang Dynasty.
Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to Year 5! After a very different year, we are over the moon to be welcoming you all back to school. We have lots of fun plans for this year, and are so excited to get stuck into our learning. Mr Napier and Mrs Duboisson are really looking forward to getting to know you, and I am delighted to be spending another year with you! There is a letter coming out this week (we will also upload it here) packed full of vital information, so please read it carefully, and let us know if you have any queries.
This term our topic is 'Earth, Space and Beyond'. In Science we will start off by studying Earth and the solar system. Soon our young scientists will aim to explore light and colour right across the spectrum! We have already begun to step back in time in a voyage of discovery with the ancient Maya civilisations and are digging deep in world of biographies.
Y5 have been exploring multiplication and division in a recent unit of work. They have completed two lessons with a particular focus on the rules of BODMAS. This has enabled the children to extend their learning further and challenge them!
The children wanted to explain how the BODMAS rules work and show examples of how to apply it during a lesson. Please click on the links below:
Have a go at these tasks at home, if you would like to.
The first task is the instructions for Hubbub, the traditional Native American game played by the Wampanoag people. Use the game pieces we made in school, you will just need to ask your grown ups for a bowl.
The second task is a talking activity, based on the recent achievements of Marcus Rashford.
