Term 3

SPELLINGS - This week, Year 5 commenced with the ReadWriteInc spelling programme. This programme continues to use the skillset that the children were taught in Key Stage 1. The children will begin to bring these home for the following week! Please see below the prefixes practised from Term 3 Week 6.

ENTERPRISE DAY - Before Christmas, Year 5 won the enterprise day but collecting a lump sum of £105 for their bauballs and Christmas cards. They worked extremely hard and received a winners prize of a trip to McDonalds. They loved it!

TERM 3 DISPLAYS - Celebration of Learning/Adam & Eve

BIKEABILITY - This week, some of the Year 5 children took part in their BikeAbility course through TakePride. They thoroughly enjoyed it and it will continue, next week. Well done all!

FRENCH - In French, through Term 3, the children have been learning how to say the different weathers in French through oral exercises such as; singing, I say You Say and matching activities. During the lesson today, the children looked at a weather forecast and inserted the different weathers for each region.

MATHS - In Term 3, Year 5 have started to learn about Shape and Positioning/.Direction. We dived straight into the knowledge and understanding of 3D Shapes whilst touching on their previous taught understanding of polygons and quadrilaterals. Some of the children certainly enjoyed getting the beebots out! This also gave the children the chance to link it into their computing learning of 'Coding'

SCIENCE - In Science, this week, we continued to focus our attention on Forces and we grouped together different items whether they were push/pull, turn or lift. The children were able to make great links between each group.

RE - In RE, we have been learning about Inspirational People that followed God's Word to make a change to the lives of many. This week, we studied the beatitudes and learnt about the story of St. Josephine Bakhita. As you'd see in the picture, Filip completed a hot seating task where he pretended to be Josephine, herself.

ART - In Art, the children have started to design their pattern for their cross stitch using the binca squares. When planning, we made a link to our Asia topic and focused our attention on Indonesian Puppets. I can't wait to see the final products!

PE - In PE, the children started their RealDANCE unit and absolutely loved it. They used their body parts to create a range of shapes which included balance. The challenge was for the children to place three shapes/stages into a complete movement. The concentration and movement was fantastic!

SCIENCE - In Science, the children have turned their attention to 'Forces'. Even though the Year 5 were taught this in Term 1, all of the knowledge will be consolidated ahead of their journey into Year 6

ENGLISH READING - During Term 3, Year 5 will focus their attention on the humorous story 'There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom' by Louis Sachar. So far we have read the opening 4 chapters and they absolutely love it.

ENGLISH - SHORT BURST WRITING - In the first few days of Term 3, Year 5 have participated in discussion around an imaginative picture. They used three headings (description, actions and dialogue) to collect banks of information and placed it all into a short piece of writing. How would you describe what is happening, in this picture?
