Friday 6th March 2020
Year 5 children are expected to read for at least 10 minutes every day and hand in their reading record daily. Please sign their record and encourage them to read a range of genres. There are banded books in school in addition to the books in the school’s library and the class book corner (including those in the ‘Classics Challenge’)
We loved seeing the children come dressed as some fantastic book characters.
Friday 13th March –Sport Relief
Sport Relief sees the welcome return of Chilton’s Dance-a-thon – Team Chilton will be dancing all day from 9am until 3pm. The children may wear something sporty/disco or colourful to school if they wish in exchange for a £1 donation.
Our Topic 'Bronze to Bioplastic' begins next week. the children will be learning lots about materials and their properties. Please can children bring in any items that could be recycled (plastic bottles, cereal boxes etc) to make a sculpture on Monday.
Learning this week:
English – This week the children have been exploring Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. They have used drama to help them to re tell the story and explored the meaning of some of the Old English words. They have planned and written diaries and narratives using a range of descriptive techniques and as a year group they have prepared a rap to show in assembly!
Maths – Money, money, money! This week the children have carried on their learning around money. They have focussed on using multiplication to help them solve money word problems.
We have also been learning to use units of time and converting between units. It would be useful for the children to practise converting between digital and analogue time at home.
RE – This week the children have been learning about Buddhism. They have learnt about the history of Buddha and why he is still so important to Buddhist today. The children also learnt about mediation and even had a go in class.
There is a MyMaths task set this week. Please also remember to challenge yourself on TTRS
There is no right or wrong way to complete a Love to Learn task! Please be as imaginative or as creative as you would like! Love to Learn tasks should be returned on the Wednesday following them being set. Whilst books may not be formally marked, in class we will spend time looking at and enjoying what everyone has learned at home and rewards and house points will be given!
