One day to go before we end the first half of a very busy term!

SCIENCE
Our science focus on the Earth, Sun and Moon was truly awe inspiring! So many questions... Daniel said his head couldn't take it all in and Katie said that as soon as you found the answer to one question another question needed answering! The children re-enacted the movement of the planets (and our moon) in our solar system and learned about the phases of the moon. We've been intrigued by moon names such as the blood moon and harvest moon. Mackenzie helped us find out about the blood moon which appeared in China last week (we think!)

LITERACY
We've read a poem called Full Moon and explored all its images and then written our own poems in the same style but based on the sun. In Book Club we read Harvest Moon by Ted Hughes and in small groups performed it as a piece of choral poetry. Each group's interpretation was very different. A real treat to watch and listen to.
We've been working on extending our punctuation (colon and semi-colon and brackets) and how to add clauses more accurately.We're finishing the week, by writing a short story to see if we can apply our sentence and punctuation skills!

SPELLING
Y5 have shone with the new word lists and banks of statutory words we've got to learn. I've been really impressed with the children's attitude and how many of the children are making such good progress with them. Keep it up! We will be having some review and consolidation weeks to ensure we're remembering the ones we've already learned and adding new words that contain the patterns / rules we've looked at.

MATHS
Maths has continued to focus on multiplication.
Well done to all of you who've completed the My Maths homework. Do remember that you can log on and have a go at other activities, look at lessons etc...Please make sure you are practicing your times tables — there will be spot checks next half term.
Today we had an investigation morning based on palindromes — eg 131, 24642...Numbers (and words) that read the say forwards and backwards. We investigated how many palindromes we could find between 0 and 1000 and also taking a number like 14 and adding to it its reversal 41, to see if its answer would be a palindromic number...in this case it is... 55!

COMPUTER SCIENCE
We've had the ipads in class and have been working on the next stage of coding for Y5 and considering consequences...If....then...and applying to maze games.

NEW STARTERS
On Wednesday we joined Y6 and their buddies in reception at St Chad's for the New Starters service. We had a lovely time. It was a great way for Y5 to see what will be expected of them this time next year!

LEARNING LOG HOMEWORK
Well done for completing your homework and for your fantastic interpretations on the theme Roundhouses: models, diaries, leaflets, FOOD!!! We hope you enjoy the photos of some of our work!

Well done, too, to Daniel for being in Wybunbury's winning Bocchia team! We're really proud of you!

Do remember what we said about keeping safe this morning in our PHSE assembly. There are lots of fun things happening over the next week but it's also getting dark and we want you to think about keeping yourself safe while you are out and about after dark and if going to Bonfire/Firework displays.

And so one more day to go and then it's a well earned rest!
