Year 5 have been working extremely hard this week from home and sending in lots of photographs of their learning. It has also bee wonderful to hear from you all on our weekly phone calls, talking about all the great things you have been doing whilst in lock down. 

Everyone is keen to get back to school and  see their friends, which would be lovely, but not until it is safe to do so.  

 

I have enjoyed reading your writing this week. I have seen that you have put in lots of effort and I thank your parents for helping you.  Some of your writing has been super and you are really developing your own style.

Day Three: 

Thank you for all your pictures today of your learning.  They have certainly made me smile.  You are all working so hard from home and I am incredibly proud of you and your parents.  Today I have enjoyed speaking to you all individually on the phone - it was lovely to hear all of your voices.  I miss you all terribly, and I am sure you are missing your friends too.  

Here are some pictures from today: 

Thomas and his pug showing off his rainbow boat. 

 

Day Two: 

It has been a much quieter day today, and I have not heard from as many of you as normal.  Please do keep in touch each day, as it is too quiet here in school without you all. 

I have been sent some lovely photographs today. Here are a couple: 

A cake made by Lucy.  It looks delicious. 

Ciaran practising his spelling.

 

Day one: 

Thank you to all the children and parents for your hard work on day one of home learning. We understand that at this time it is difficult and that your children will do the best they can with their learning whilst they are not in school.  I have loved looking at all the work that you have all sent me so far. It makes me smile to think that you are all safe and still focussed on your education.  

I have also enjoyed receiving photographs showing me what you have been up to. These are my 2 favourite pictures from today.  

 

 

Please send me photos of what you are getting up to. They are definitely cheering me up.  

Today it has been awfully quiet without you all and I miss you all dearly.  Remember to stay safe and continue to email me with your learning, your daily updates, your photos, and even maybe a joke... I know you love them.  

Keep smiling and stay safe.

Week beginning 9th March
On Friday we took part in sports relief for charity. All year 5 took part in circuit training and brought in money to support the cause. 
This week for Science week we have taken part in different learning  activities.  Today we researched the life of David Attenborough and created some art work of animals that he has even in the wild.  

Today we worked with Steve to learn about some famous scientists: Micheal Farraday, Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton and Steven Hawkins. We created drama and freeze learning about their ideas and discoveries.

This week was year 5 class assembly.  We performed our play on Robert Scott to the school and 

parents.  We hoped you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed performing it.  

On Monday for science week we were lucky to have a science workshop. we got to take part in different science experiments and make polymer (slime) which we all loved. 

Week Beginning 2nd March 

 

Wow. What a week year 5 have had. A day of drama, a theatre trip to London and world book day. It has been an amazing but tiring week. 

World book day

For world book today this week, we read as many books as we could and studied them in different ways. We took part in freeze frames, thought tracking, played Kahoot, read to each other, took part in a P4C and shared stories with the younger children. 

A play in a day: Robert Scott

This week we were lucky to have Steve in. he joined your five for the day to help us put together a play all about Robert Scott.  I was simply amazed by the facts that the children had learned through drama and how they then were able to use this to write their own diaries as Robert Scott on his journey to the South Pole.  the children were amazing as always.

Week Beginning 24 th February

 

Welcome back year 5. We a very busy term ahead but lots of fun learning planned too. Our classroom has been changed to suit our new topics and the homework that you have been sending in has been amazing. Well done for all your hard work.

We have begun to look at the character Elphaba and the back ground stories of the main characters ready for our trip to London next week. We have wrote our own poems as characters in their youth and what their dreams are for the future. 
Class Displays
