The children have been very busy solving word problems and reasoning activities in Maths this week.  In English, we are enjoying our new book about Naledi and Tiro travelling to Johannesburg on their own!

Have a restful weekend.  We look forward to another packed week of learning next week, our last one before half term.

Week ending 5th October 

Well done to 5J for a very informative and enjoyable Collective Worship.  You all did yourselves proud.

Parents, please ask the children about the workshop we had in the hall this morning.

In maths, we have moved onto addition and subtraction with more than 4 digits using the column method and, in English, we are just beginning a new book -Journey to Jo'burg by Beverley Naidoo.  Please see below the Big Write task for next week.

Week ending 28th September 2018


Please see above for our Year 5 Welcome Meeting powerpoint (saved as PDF file). 

This week, the children have enjoyed writing and performing playscripts based on the Greek Myth, Odysseus and the Cyclops. Then they converted their scripts into direct speech using speech punctuation. Finally, they wrote a newspaper article based on the events in the story and included witness statements.

In maths, children have been exploring negative numbers and finding the difference between different temperatures. 

Week ending 21st September

Delving further in Ancient Greek myths, we discussed why Polyphemus and Odysseus acted in the ways in which they did.  Please ask your children to enlighten you further.  The children have begun to research the lives of the Ancient Greeks so that they can develop a reasoned argument as to why it would have been better to be a man or a woman in Ancient Greek times.  Please see this week's Big Write below.

Week ending 14th September

It has been great to see both classes settle down so well since the start of term.  Learning is at full pace now.  The children had an exciting day last Friday building a replica of the Parthenon and we will post photos of that soon.  We have been looking at Greek myths and the children have written their own myth, which we are looking forward to reading.  In maths we have focussed on palce value up to 10,00 and are currently reading and writing Roman Numerals up to 1000.

Please take a look at the homework schedule as it is really important that the children do their homework and that it is handed in on time.  This is good practice for later life and is necessary as the homework we set reinforces what the children are learning in school.  Have a lovely weekend.
