Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 blog. Each week we will update you with what we have been learning.

Reminders:

Please bring in a plain white t-shirt  that can be drawn on by FRI 10th MAY . We will need it for our topic.

“My Home Town” – home learning task

Where we grow up plays a huge part in our lives – shaping who we are, what we do, who we know and where we go! For your home learning project for ‘Good to be Me’, over the course of Term 5, we would like you to create something that tells us all about what ‘My Home Town’ means to you. This home learning can take any form – there is no right or wrong way but you can be as creative as you like!

 

PE is every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children have the correct PE kit in school.

Year 5 children are expected to read for at least 10 minutes every day and hand in their reading record daily.

Learning this week:

In our English lessons, we identified the features of a balanced argument. We read example texts and created a checklist of the features so that we could write our own balanced argument about The Highwayman. We titles our argument ‘Should the soldiers have shot The Highwayman?’. Using a formal tone, powerful openers and a structured format, we presented the arguments for and against them shooting him dead. We held a debate to help with our understanding and made our arguments stronger by supporting our points with evidence.

In maths, we developed our division learning. We answered division problems by calculating division answers as either decimal numbers, fractions or deciding whether to round the answer up or down.

Our next topic ‘BEING HUMAN’ has really captured us! Thank you to those who brought in some fantastic Love to Learn body organs. As an entry point, we drew an outline of a body and identified as many organs as we could. We then participated in some physical challenged to see how far we could push our bodies….unfortunately we didn’t beat any of the world record holders! Later in the week, we learnt about the different parts of the brain and about our nervous system.

 

Home Learning:

Research the effect of smoking on the human body.

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!
