Year 5 Blog

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.

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.
