Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page

Week Ending 18/1/19

We have been busy at work this week writing our own mystery stories!  We really enjoy being creative and writing stories, letting our imagination come to life.

We made sure we had our detective and prime suspects in place, and linked our setting to an extreme earth concept!

Have a read at some snippets of our stories!

Week Ending 7/12/18

Year 5 loved their visit from the Hare Krishna!

We learnt lots about the religion!  We learnt about the history of the Gods and Goddesses and why they’re so important in the religion; we even got to dress up as famous Gods and Goddesses!

Take a look at our pictures!

Week Ending 23/11/18

“What would happen if we had more planets in the solar system?” Well, why not give it a go!

Year 5 created their own planets, this week! We thought about the style and design of the planet, along with creating a fact file of our new planet!

Week Ending 16/11/18

This week, Year 5 have been writing their explanation texts! We have focused for a full two weeks on how to structure our texts and all the features that needed to be included!

What made it most interesting? We were able to write a text based on our own cracking contraptions!

Take a look at our work!

Week Ending 9/11/18

Our classroom was outside, this week!

We had a great afternoon taking our learning outside! Some of us were a little hesitant to get muddy at first, but by the end we all were covered in mud; a success!!

Take a look at us outside making tree spirits!

Week Ending 26/10/18

Year 5 went to Africa for the morning!

We were in for a treat when we had the opportunity to do some African Drumming! We all had such a lovely morning, learning about the origins of drumming and enjoyed it even more when we got to play the drums and make some music!

Week Ending 19/10/18

Thursday 18th October; the day we learnt to skate!

We had so much fun learning how to use a skateboard! We learnt the basics first of balancing and maintaining good posture on our boards, before we got in to the fun bit… skating!!

We learnt how to pull each other along first, before we skated on our own; we all even tried a ‘180 flip’!

2020 Olympics here we come!

Week Ending 12/10/18

We have really enjoyed writing our Cinquain poetry this week! It is a style of poetry that is new to us, but we did really well! Our poems had to consist of 5 lines with a 2,4,6,8,2 syllable pattern!

Week Ending 5/10/18

This week, we had a chance to conclude our pieces of artwork; we had the opportunity to create a scene from the war. In our first lesson we painted our backgrounds, and in our second lesson we used pieces of black card to create a silhouette effect. Amazingly talented Year 5’s!

Week Ending 28/9/18

We are coming to an end with our focus on addition and subtraction using column method this week! We have added and subtracted 4-digit numbers from 5-digit numbers and learnt the techniques of borrowing and carrying over! We have enjoyed putting our skills in to practice and using column method with real-life problems!

Week Beginning 17/9/18

This week, Year 5 have been creating their own interpretations of WW2 pictures. We have used different techniques of shading and cross-hatching to create some beautiful pieces of art!
