One Week To Go.

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

I cannot believe this half term is nearly over, it is incredible what can be achieved! 
In maths we have ought our way through place value and we are now applying those skills to addition and subtraction. Get practising those times tables because after half term we will be looking at multiplication and division. In literacy, we are ready to write all about Cornwall in our most formal and persuasive manner we can (commas included hopefully)! In art, we have practised sketching techniques ready for a portrait of a famous Scientist (different eh!). In RE, we have looked at covenants - this children found this hard, maybe see if hey know what one is and finally through Black History Month we have studied musicians and athletes and what they have been through to achieve what they have!

Really this is just the start! 

This weeks spellings:

confusion
tension
precision
revision
suspension
extension
comprehension
relevant
restaurant
recognise

Have a wonderful weekend.

Club Colours Week

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

This weeks spelling are the ir prefix to make the root word opposite, words that can have prefix added to it and 2 of the national curriculum words. 

irregular
irrelevant
irresponsible
irresistible
responsible
logical
practical
patient
yacht
queue

This week has been a very busy week (though when it it not?). In English, we are researching Corwall to ultimately write a brouchure about it. The reason we are studying Cornwall is because it is where our book ITCH is based and because it is very different Leeds. 

In maths, we have begun negative number, an easy and hard topic all at the same time. When in context (such as temperature) the children are finding it much easier to solve, but as a standard problem it looks much tricker. 

On Thursday was Club Colours day, the children ran a mile and produced some lovely work, we are really porud of the effort they put in. There is still time to send the sponsor money in if you have collected any. 

Please remember, where possible, chlildren will be outside and even on the grass, so send in an extra pair of shoes if you feel necessary and make sure the children all have coats. 

Have a lovely weekend.

Back in the swing of things!

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

We are getting back into the swing of things here in Year 5!

We continue to be so proud of how the children have settled back in and are mostly following the new FERDI and CAP rules laid out across school, something we hope becomes a good habit for the rest of the year.

It has been a fun-filled week in the classrooms. We have continued to learn about materials and their properties as we look to progress on our scientific journeys. We are beginning to develop some excellent little coders and have worked hard in ICT to improve our skills. In maths, we continue to focus on rounding and in literacy we have written our own stories using adjectives and adverbs. Mrs Austerfield's assemblies continue to be a hit and we have celebrated Thumbs Up Awards for Isobella, Holly P, Florence S and Erin. Roll on week 4!

Children have been set homework on Mirodo this week, unless you returned the slip requesting paper homework, passwords are stuck in their planners. Remember that homework is set on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday. Spellings are also set (see below). Apologies to Birch class, there was a slight technical hitch which meant no homework was set but we have sorted this and there is homework to be completed this week.

As always, if you need to speak to us, please email year5teachers@asquithprimary.org.

Spellings

antique

unique

grotesque

cheque

fatigue

dialogue

league

tongue

catalogue

hindrance

Have a fantastic weekend!

First Full Week

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

We have made it through the first full week back!

We are so proud of how the children have settled back in and are mostly trying to follow the new school systems and rules. We have FERDI and his CAP (test your children, see if they know what it means), many sanitising and washing hands stations and our own personal euipment to use. 

It has been a packed week and a half. We have already done a science experiement, music lessons - some children even showing their talents on a glockenspiel, some ICT, practising our coding (between you and me the children are better at it then the adults). In maths, we have focused on rounding and in literacy we are building up to writing our own stories next week using adjectives and adverbs. Mrs Austerfields new assemblies have been a hit and we are already handing out some Thumbs Up Awards. I can't believe it has only been one week!

Children have been set homework on Mirodo this week, unless you returned the slip requesting paper homework, passwords are stuck in their planners. Remember that homework is set on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday. Spellings are also set (see below) 

As always, if you need to speak to us, please email year5teachers@asquithprimary.org.

Spellings

illogical
illegal
illegible
illiterate
impatient

Have a fantasic weekend!
