What We Have Been Doing

W/C 3.6.19

 

Welcome back to our final half term of year 5!

 

There are lots of exciting things coming up this half term, including new RE and science based themes. In English, we are really looking forward to lots of work on Shakespeare.

 

We have a trip to the Think Tank in Birmingham planned for the 13th June, and the Bright Day at Arnold Hill on the 12th July.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the information meeting for parents on 11th June. At this meeting we will share the resources we will use throughout our Growing Up week. The meeting is for parents only, but if you need to bring children, we will have a room and supervising adult available. 

 

Keep checking this page for details of the brilliant work we have been doing.

25.2.19

 

Welcome back! It was lovely to see you all at the parental consultations and we hope you've enjoyed the break and are looking forward to the next half term.

 

This half term we start a new theme looking at the legacy the Ancient Greeks have left us. Warning: we will be having an Ancient Greece day on Thursday 4th April with dressing up involved (more details to follow shortly)! Later in the half term, our English work will be based around Ancient Greece and Pandora's Box, but before then we will be enjoying the narrative poems of The Highwayman and The Lady of Shallot. In maths we will continue to look at fractions, as well as angles and shape. 

 

As always, we welcome anything from home you may have that will support our work. 

 

The door (or email inbox) is always open if there is anything you want to talk to us about. 

Spring 1 Half Term

 

This half term has been packed full of activities as we were busy learning all about Space. Throughout the theme, we learned about the Earth orbiting the sun and how this affects life on our planet. Using Holst's Planets as inspiration, we wrote some amazing pieces of descriptive writing. We also designed our own planets. The children were eager to learn more about space exploration, so we took the time to investigate this, and took part in an astronaut training programme - hopefully our job applications will be successful!

Week beginning 10.12.18

 

What a busy week! After our fantastic Christmas performances, we've been busy creating a 'talking textile' - a piece of art showing the events of World War 2. Part of this process was to make our own felt. Thank you so much for sending in the rolling pins and bubble wrap! As you can see from the pictures, the children really enjoyed making the felt. Pictures of the finished talking textiles to follow.

Our first half term

 

It has been a busy half term. The children have loved learning about our theme of Nottingham Then and Now; learning about the history of Nottingham and then focusing on Nottingham during WW2.

 

Just before half term, we visited the National Holocaust Centre. It was such an interesting trip, hearing testimonies from survivors and visiting the exhibit. The children represented the school fantastically, we were incredibly proud of them.

 

Our theme will continue into the next half term, when we will also be looking at Judaism. Following on from this theme, we will move on to learn about space. 

 

In maths we will continue to look at the 4 operations. In English, once we have written recounts on our trip to the Holocaust Centre, we will study the short animation 'The Piano', and make our own version of the film. 

 

We will be sending out this half term's homework shortly. 

 

It was great to see you all at the parental consultations; thanks for your continued support. If you have any queries, don't hesitate to get in touch.

 

Thanks, the year 5 team. 

 

Welcome to Year 5!

 

The children have come back to school with a fantastic attitude; we can see many of them are determined to start the new year as they mean to go on. We are really looking forward to watching them mature and progress as the year goes on.

 

So far, we have talked about growth mindset and the importance of pushing ourselves to do the best we can. In English we are reading a brilliant book called 'Bill's New Frock'. We have started our new theme of Nottingham Then and Now; looking at Nottingham's history, with a focus on WW2. Please feel free to bring in any artefacts linked to the theme. In maths, we have started the year looking at place value. We will then move on to the 4 operations. 

 

As always, please feel free to get in touch with any questions. Don't forget we are holding a curriculum meeting after school on Tuesday 18th September. Please sign in at reception. 

 

Miss Oates and Mrs Hussain.
