Spelling

As a school we are now using an online platform called Spelling Frame (many of you used Spelling Frame during COVID Home Learning.

Regularly, I will set the children a spelling rule or pattern that they can practise using Spelling Frame online. At the end of each spelling rule the children will take a test on Spelling Frame in school.

When the children log onto Spelling Frame, they will select the rule that has been set for that week. Then, they can play various games to practice the rules as well as trying a mock test before the real one.

A video on Spelling Frame has been added to the class page below. 

Reading

Children should read at least three pages per night of their reading book and they should complete the Accelerated Reader Quiz when they have finished.

TT Rockstars

Children should use the TTRockstars programme to practise their times tables regularly. 

Knowledge Organisers

The minimum knowledge that children need to know for each topic have been put together onto one knowledge organiser. Click here to be taken to the different Knowledge Organisers for our topics.

P.E

Our P.E days will be Monday and Thursday.

Please remember that earrings are not allowed to be worn during PE lessons and tape coverings are not allowed.

Vest Creations

Below are pictures of the children's vests that they made for their DT this half term. They have adapted the sleeves, sewed on a pocket, dyed the shirt and added decertations.

1960s Day

Below are pictures from our 1960s themed day. We baked Pineapple Upside Down cake and learnt about the different dance moves popular in the decade. It has kicked off our Entertainment and Leisure in the 60s topic well!

Music

With Mrs Curtis, the class have been studying different musicals. Today, the focus was West Side Story and below is a reenactment of the song America.

Virtual Reality Experience

Below are photos from the Virtual Reality experience that Year 5 took part in. We explored our planet, and the other planets within our solar systems. We also landed on other planets and explored them, then we delivered deeper into space and the other galaxies that are out there. The children really enjoyed this and were able to explore space in a way they never had before!

Giacometti Inspired Sculptures

Below are photos from our Art lesson. We observed the different positions that people create and sketched them. We then created 1 chosen position using tin foil and covered them with clay. Soon, we will paint them to give them depth and create light and shadow. 

Year 5's Christmas Day

Below are some photos from the children's Christmas themed day. They wore their best Christmas clothes, had a Christmassy lunch of Chicken Chunks, Chips and Beans (democratically voted for by the class) and a film evening with snacks. What a brilliant day we all had!

French 

With Mademoiselle Curtis we have been learning about conversational phrases in French. We have all worked so hard on our pronunciation, below is an example of the types of conversations we have been having in class. 

Bravo à tous!

Viking Battle

Today we had an immersive start to our Viking topic. We learnt about Viking shields and helmets and used the Denmark Museum website to virtually view real Viking artefacts. Below are some pictures of our Viking battle and the different moves we learnt.
