Back in the swing of things in Y5

Welcome back, I hope you have had a lovely half term.

In Maths this week, we have recapped our skills on fractions. We have ordered, converted, added and subtracted all sorts of fractions from improper to mixed numbers. We have also had a class inter house challenge where we have worked together in our teams during our starters to answer as many calculations mentally, earning points for our team. We will continue this challenge as we lead up to sports day.

This week In English, we have begun to research facts about Stonehenge, our note taking skills have come alive whilst watching video footage as we prepare to plan our report. We have begun to organise our facts into possible paragraphs under different sub headings and thought carefully about our introduction.

During Book Club this week, we have read information texts and used them to find words that match the explanations.

In our final Science unit on Living Things, we have completed our bar chart graphs with the measurements taken over half term. We have calculated different ratios and recorded our results. As a final part to this unit, we compared the life cycle of a Grey wolf to the human life cycle, and considered the similarities and differences.

Our clay jewellery now hangs with pride on our display after being threaded onto our chosen twine. We are very pleased with how authentic they look.

Podcasting has been the theme of our computing unit with Mrs Charlesworth this week. We have investigated different podcasts and evaluated how good we think they are. We have also begun to write our own Stone Age raps to match the rap we have learnt in music.

In our new History unit, the Bronze Age, we have begun to research the period and some of the significant finds within it.

We have begun short visits to our buddies in Preschool this week with great success. We will continue this throughout the term to build our relationships and ease our nerves.

In PSHE today we discussed traditions as we celebrated the Queen's official birthday. We were amazed to find out that her wedding dress was paid for using ration coupons!

A quick housekeeping note, could I please ask you to encourage your child to bring in a summer cap, a large water bottle and sun cream (if required) on Monday as we are hoping to practise our sports day events. This will mean being out in the sun for longer periods than usual.

We have had an extremely busy week finishing it with sending our well wishes with Alfie as his journey at Wybunbury came to an end and hope his evening went to plan. Enjoy your weekend.

Mrs Burns.
