Newsletter Autumn Term

Reading in Year 5

The topic for the rest of this half term is 'Myths and Legends'. We will begin the topic by familiarising ourselves with a variety of myths and legends.

Year 5 have been researching what 'myths' and 'legends' are using the macbooks. They then had the opportunity to read and listen to some stories of their choice. They really enjoyed this!

Year 5 had an amazing time on their residential in Haworth. The children were perfectly behaved and made us so proud. We had loads of laughs and fun. Thank you year 5 for a wonderful three days.

Take a look at all the photographs we took.

 

Year 5 have had a visitor in class with them doing a project called 'Sticky Business'. We had loads of fun mastering skills such as tying knots, sawing wood, hammering, drilling and much more. We even designed and created a product to advertise to the rest of the class. Take a look!

On Thursday 8th June, the 'Blah Blah Blah' theater company visited year 5. A surprise guest burst into our classroom, begging for our help. She told us the story of her sister, whose life was in danger. Year 5 helped to create some incredible interactive stories in an attempt to save her life. We had a great time!

Year 5 had great fun visiting the petting zoo!

We are very excited about going on our residential to Haworth. We found out lots of information and facts about Haworth from different sources and recorded them in a circle map.

In Maths we have been busy problem solving.

Everyone has had an opportunity to ride a bike!

We have now completed a 'Fix-up' session to ensure that bikes are safe and ready for the ride!

Year 5 have done some beautiful artwork recently in the style of our artist Robert Dutton.

Year 5 practicing for their Samba concert. It's starting to get VERY loud but sounds impressive!

Year 5 have done some incredible art work today using oil pastels. They copied a picture of a sunset in the style of Robert Dutton.

In science, we have been learning about water resistance. We created different shapes using blu tac and timed how long they took to fall through the water. The ones which took longer to fall had more water resistance acting upon them.

In science, year 5 have been learning about air resistance. We created parachutes of different sizes to investigate how the surface area affects the rate at which it falls.

Year 5 have been using Newton meters in science to measure the weight of various classroom objects. We first made predictions which we were exceptionally good at!

Year 5 had a lovely morning at Moortown Baptist Church learning all about the Easter story.

There was a strange scene waiting in our classroom this morning! Ask your child what was happening...

Year 5 have been creating 'WANTED' posters for the Highwayman. We chose our words carefully so that they would convince a member of the public to hand the Highwayman in.

We looked at the first verse of 'the Highwayman' poem today. It has a fantastic setting description! We used charcoal and white pastels to show the setting we pictured in our minds.

Year 5 created these 'Role on the Wall' posters about one of the main characters Bradley Chalkers.

We created these cause and effect multi-flow maps to try and work out the reasons for Bradley Chalker's bad behaviour

Our sculptures are finally finished for the Great Pottery Throwdown on Thursday 16th March

Year 5 have been working hard on their clay sculptures for The Great Pottery Throwdown!

Year 5 are preparing for 'The Great Pottery Throwdown'. For this, we are going to be sculpting a bust of ourselves. Today we practised creating different facial features.

We worked in groups and used a thinking map to develop and record effective vocabulary to describe an earthquake scene.

In maths, we measured how far we could jump. This was tricky because we had to use estimating skills with some of the rulers! We then used different operations to analyse and compare our data.

In RE, we thought about what we should do to lead a 'good' life. We then worked as a group to try develop a list of the 3 most important things. This was challenging because we all have different opinions. We had to discuss and listen carefully!

Miss Wood's reading group have been looking at the types of questions we might see in a reading test. The class have now taken the role of the teacher and are creating their own reading comprehension tests using the macbooks and Oddizzi! Next week, their friends will be completing the tests.

Year 5 had a great afternoon conducting their own science experiements. They have been testing how absorbent or strong nappies are for our 'Everyday Materials' topic.

October is Black History Month. We looked at Martin Luther King's dream speech and then created some of our own hopes and dreams for the future.

We went for a autumn walk in the woods. We found out lots of information about seeds and how they disperse.

Problem solving in Maths!

Take a look at the year 5 bridge building competition! The children had to design their own catchy company logo, design a bridge to meet a specific design brief, make the bridge then test it out. The winning bridge held over 900g in weight!

Year 5 are settling into their new classrooms well.
