Friday 17th September
Well done to Year 5 on another fantastic week's work. Here's what we've been up to this week:
This week, we have continued reading 'Ice Trap' and have followed Shackleton and his men on their life on the ice floes. We have been writing a non-chronological report about Antarctica, focusing on using technical language. Firstly, we read through a couple of non-chron and then made a list of the different features. We planned and wrote our first two paragraphs, Geography and Wildlife. Next week, we will be continuing our non-chrons, writing our next two paragraphs, Climate and History as well as a 'Fun Facts' section.
This week, we have been looking at Addition and Subtraction and practising these skills in a range of different ways. We also made steps to successes for both skills to ensure that we could avoid any mistakes. Towards the end of the week, we applied our skills to a range of different word problems. Next week, we will be moving on to Multiplication and Division.
This week, we have started our new Topic 'Frozen Kingdom'. For our Entry Point, we were given a 130kg pulk and had to decide which items we were going to take and explain our choices. We then moved on to our Art Part and created some 3D landscapes of Antarctica including the mountains of Antarctica and Mount Erebus, the Volcano that is there.
For the children's home learning this week. We have set two MyMaths tasks on Addition and Subtraction. Please see your child's teacher if you need MyMaths logins.
Sports Project is on Wednesday. Please could children come to school wearing their school uniform and trainers.
Swimming is on Thursday. Children will need to wear normal school uniform and bring their swimming things in a bag. Children can bring a snack of fruit to eat when they return to school if they want to.
After Swimming on Thursday, Team Cornflower will be leaving at normal time of 3:15 again, and Team Sapphire at the later time of 4:15
