Our week in Year 5

Home » News » Our week in Year 5

The children had a busy second week in and out of school last week and we look forward to another full and busy week ahead.
The main event of the week was our visit to the New Vic theatre to see the performance of 101 Dalmations. We all agreed it was brilliant — a huge 'Ahhh!' echoed around the auditorium as a real-life Dalmation appeared at the end of the performance!

Our literacy as planned, had us reading and unpicking descriptions of Misselthwaite Manor from our class story The Secret Garden. We began by looking at descriptive words and phrases from the extracts and then we extended our understanding and our vocabulary using dictionaries and thesauruses. We have since written our introductions for our 'National Trust' leaflets, encouraging people to come an visit this 'splendid stately home'. We will continue our writing this week by focussing on what a visitor could do during a visit to Misselthwaite Manor eg Wander along the walkways... and Explore the many gardens...
We are focussing on our Inferential Reading skills in Book Club. I'm pleased to see some children are using their yellow reading record books daily. They should come into school with your reading book each day!
Spelling this week is the 'soft c' found at the beginning and middle of words eg cyclist, citizen, ceiling...Some children are working on 'ur' this week. Please do find time to practice spellings for Thursday's test — word lists are in your child's homework book!

In Numeracy we moved on from fractions to decimal fractions and most of us are secure with the links between fractions and decimals now. We will be working on money this week. Keep practising times-tables and division facts!

Our classroom was very pungent during the middle of the week as we investigated onions as part of our science work. We've done some observational drawing and labelling and, thanks to Josephine, had the opportunity to look closely at the scales of an onion under her microscope.



Anita Hughes has supported children as they sewed their leaves for our Tree of Hope which is in our Reflection Area. This will be an on-going project over the next few weeks.
PE: There were favourable comments from the class about their PE lessons so far this term, which are focussing on Basketball and Football skills. Tommy was Sportscape's 'Sports star of the week'. Well done Tommy! I'm looking forward to finding out who it is this next week!
Singing: We've been learning the 'moves' to go with our singing this week. There will be additional singing slots this next week as we prepare for the Young Voices on 3rd February. Please do practice at home.
Monday 20-Wednesday 22nd January
Literacy and Numeracy books will be sent home this next week to talk through targets and see the work that has been undertaken. Please do RETURN BOOKS THE NEXT DAY as your child will need them for their lessons.
