Thank you to the parents who joined us for our Open Afternoon. The children were eager to share their fabulous work about Ancient Egypt and they had lots of fun mummifying some of you!

For one of our PE enrichment days this term, we learnt how to fence!

 

This is what we are learning in class 5 this term

Year 5 Curriculum Summer 2 2019

 

In Science this term, we're learning about LIVING THINGS AND THEIR HABITATS. 

In preparation, we researched amphibians and lizards and made models out of clay!

In art, we used coloured pastels to draw plants and their different parts.

We researched the scientist, Jane Goodall. She is well-known for her work with chimpanzees in Tanzania.  We created persuasive posters to encourage people to donate and help save the chimpanzees who are in danger of becoming extinct.

 

Class 5 really enjoyed Greek day!

We have learnt about life in Ancient Greece, including democracy. We listened to traditional music and some of us had a go at traditional Greek dancing.

Some children dressed in Togas and everyone tasted some traditional Greek food. Not everyone enjoyed the olives and figs though! 

Take a look at our models of Greek temples and use the Greek-English decoding sheet to work out what our messages say.

 

In Year 5, we love to read.  Sometimes Stanley joins us!

In Class 5 we are Super Spellers! 

We learn new spelling rules every week.  During Y5, we will be learning how to spell

THESE words.

 

We should also be able to spell THESE words from the Year 3 and 4 exception word list. 

Once we have mastered this list of spellings, we learn THESE Year 5 and 6 spelling words.  Practise at home!

We can also practise spelling rules on SUMDOG.

In Class 5 we are Magnificent Mathematicians!

We are working hard on learning our times tables and should now be able to recall all our multiplication and related division facts up to 12 x 12. 

We use SUMDOG and TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS to practise.
