Week 3- What an AMAZING week!
We have had an amazing week in Year 5. Well done to all the children who worked extremely hard!
This is what we have been up to this week in our learning:
Homework due in Tuesday, including mathletics.
Tag word test Monday.
Please log into Seesaw using your code you stuck into your homework diary. Please submit a picture of something which makes you feel happy into the ‘Test’ folder. You can also show your parents all the fantastic work you have been doing in class! Remember, if you complete a reading review, please take a photo and log it in the folder Independent reading.
In science, we learned all about how light can be reflected using mirrors. We created light mazes to investigate this theory. Can you remember what the angles were called? One began with an I and one began with an R?
This week we have got into a more regular classroom routine and started many of our foundation subjects. We also started homework, which is handed out on Tuesday and due in by Monday. Reading has been going really well and there have been lots of signatures in homework diaries- thank you!
Lots of children have collected many reward points. At the end of September, we will have our class treat for those who have earned enough points. In the meantime, 10=earn a sweet, 25= earn a prize/ miss one piece of homework/ go on the VIP table.
In our learning, we have begun studying Ancient Egyptian Gods in English and started our revision of place value in Maths.
In art, we learned how to sketch an Egyptian God, focusing on proportion and using light strokes so that we could easily alter mistakes. Can you sketch another Egyptian picture at home?
In PE, we started football skills. There are many experienced football players in the class. Can you prepare any football drills to teach the class next week?
In PSHE, we had a lovely visit from Mrs McEwan who came to help us learn all about mental health. It was great to learn all about Mental health and we look forward to our session again next week!
In Science, we continued our topic of Light. We learned about different materials called opaque, translucent and transparent. Can you find anymore examples of these at home?
Welcome to September 2020!
We are very excited to be back to school and have had a brilliant first few days back. The children have all settled into Year 5 brilliantly and adapted to our new routines!
On Wednesday, we had our Egyptian Day. We had a great day learning about canopic jars and sarcophagi. Then we made our own jars and designed a sarcophagus.
