We were very lucky to have been visited by Clive Pig the Storyfella today.
We always love to see Clive and hear just some of his wonderful stories.
Throughout the day we have listened to creation stories about how the moon came to be and how different countries celebrate these wonderful mysteries.
During our individual class sessions we were able to create our own stories about the wonders of the universe and then perform these stories for one another.
Thank you, Clive!
Welcome to the Year 5 page
Welcome back and a Happy New Year to all of you and your families. We hope you had a restful break and are looking forward to the coming weeks.
We will shortly be sending home a Spring newsletter with your child so please keep checking their bags and look out for this.
Just a quick reminder that swimming lessons start next week, week beginning 15th January, and will run for 10 weeks.
Make sure you keep visiting this page to ensure you don't miss out on exciting updates from our Spring term.
In RE we have been learning about 'Incarnation' and asking the key question: Was Jesus the Messiah?
We have been trying to understand what type of person the 'Messiah' would need to be in order to answer the hopes and prayers of the all. This has led us to create radio adverts searching for the Messiah.
We have been learning all about numbers and their place value in maths since coming back to school. From rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000, 10,000 and even the nearest 100,000, to comparing and ordering different numbers depending on their individual component parts, we have partitioned and explored numbers in every way possible.
Using a new method (for us!) called Part-Part-Whole, we have also looked at the different ways a number can be made when you partition it into smaller parts.
On Tuesday 19th September, we were asked to partition numbers up to 1,000,000 and present our learning pictorially. We were also given the opportunity to develop our reasoning skills through how we know we were correct. Reasoning is such a big part of the maths curriculum now so it is important for us to be able to discuss and talk about our maths learning confidently and clearly.
Some pictures and videos of our learning can be seen below.
We hope you all enjoyed your summer holiday and are looking forward to the Autumn term of the new school year. By now you should have all received your Autumn newsletter full of information about the coming weeks.
On Tuesday 5th September we had a very special walk around a Victorian tea party. The tables were laden with lots of different objects, texts, pieces of writing, photos and other exciting things to get our brains thinking all about our new topic: The Victorians.
Below are some photos of this exciting experience. Look out for more updates as we learn all about what the Victorians left behind.
In the final weeks of our learning around this topic we will be hosting our own Victorian tea party and you are all invited. Keep your eyes peeled for more information.
