Year 5

Welcome!

Welcome to our class webpage where you can find out all about our wonderful learning journey. Here you will find information about our activities, examples of our work and comments from Year 5 pupils! Please visit often to see our learning journey develop.

Important information

P.E.

PE will be taught on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoonsPlease ensure that the children are in PE uniform - it would be preferable for children not to wear earrings on PE days, however if this is not possible they should be covered in micropore tape. Please also ensure that long hair is tied back.

 

Reading

Children have now been set up on our new reading scheme. Thank you for your support in helping your child to read daily at home - please help us by sending the children in with their reading records and reading books, each day, so we can continue to read with the children regularly. Children are encouraged to read their books at least three times before being changed.

Books will be changed each Monday so please ensure that books are in on this day.

 

Home Learning

Home Learning will be handed out on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday. Please see children's Home Learning books for weekly instructions and tasks.

Term 5

Our Class Text

Little Beaver and the Echo by Amy MacDonald is a charming story about a lonely young beaver who sets off on a journey when he hears someone crying on the other side of the pond.

 

We will be becoming authors by writing and illustrating our own stories based on Little Beaver and the Echo, but innovating our setting and the characters.

Kilve Court

Adventure, excitement and invaluable experience are a few words that we came up with as a class to describe our time at Kilve Court camp. It all began in the school hall where we met with a mixture of emotions; eagerness, anticipation and enthusiasm as well as doubt, trepidation and touch of home sickness already creeping in for some. However, once the coach journey was over and we'd arrived at our new home for the next couple of nights, we were left with a zest to explore both our surroundings and who we were as individuals. The adventure had begun.

 

We became young Robin Hood's during archery; future mountain explorers on the climbing wall and re-enacted scenes from 'Cool Runnings' when grass sledging down steep hills. However, some of us preferred to crack codes while orienteering; learn how to solve world problems during our fair trade business activity; or engage our team work skills to build and climb the 'Leaning Crate-Towers of Kilve'. 

 

Whether it be the amazing activities, the crazy cabin life, the well deserved meal times, forming new friendships or playing with Marmalade the cat, we all discovered our piece of the puzzle at Kilve Court and joined them together to form memories that will stay with us for a lifetime.

 

Please see the photos of our unforgettable experience below.

No bake treats

This week we created our no bake, fair trade treats and sold them to our wider school community. We acted as mini entrepreneurs to market our products and raise money for a charity of our choice. We acted as agents of changes and managed to raise a whopping £83.18!

STEM trip to UWE

We were super excited for our first trip in year 5! To complete our STEM week learning, we visited UWE to explore what it means to be an engineer. We met some real life engineers and saw some of the amazing machinery that they use to build and create things; we got to experience some virtual reality by stepping into another world and we even tried our hand at being engineers ourselves. We used a specially designed Minecraft world (which was modelled on real life Bristol!) to build solutions for real world problems. This is what engineers do... they use mathematics and science to find technical solutions for problems!!

Prayer, Saints and Feasts

 

To help us understand the meaning behind the 'Our Father', we acted out a scene where God questions a child on each line they pray. He calls the child out for not knowing what they say when they pray and ensures that they understand it's true meaning in a comical way.
