Return to School, 8th March

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

Hello to all!

A few messages to help make our return as smooth as possible:

Children will now be a year group bubble, this means we can be more flexible with learning groups and friendships. 

We will be using the grass area so children are safe, this means they may get muddy.

You can wear PE kits on PE days.

No bags or things from home where possible please (but please send water bottles)

Encourage your children to wash or sanitise their hands when entering school in the morning. 

We will be trialing homework on Google Classroom, Mirodo can still be used for revision. 

We are really excited for the children to return, please talk to them about any worries they may have and let us know if we can help. After talking to them, I know most children are excited to be returing - expeically as this week is Science Week! Hopefully some good fun to be had!

On the first day of Christmas....

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

This week in Polar and Birch class, we have begun our advent calendar, with children get fun treats and things to do! I hope they are enjoying the little surprises. We have also begun the Elf Kick, 12 days of Christmas being active for 1 minute with a different activity a day. We had fun completing a Science experiment, testing the absorbancy of nappies (Poplar calss decided Morrisons are the best) and they are working on their collages that will hopefully be finidhed this week.

Below are some pictures of our Science work. 

This weeks spellings are tricky it is adding able. Children need to know whether to swap, double or drop the letter before adding able. Bubt some of the words don't fit the pattern. For example misery, you drop the y and only add able (in other examples you swap the y for an i). These are the last spelling of this half term:

suitable
enjoyable
bearable 
miserable
breakable
comfortable
reliable
adorable
adaptable 
understandable

December is nearly here!

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

In year 5 this week we have been working on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We have worked hard on using the correct langauge to describe what happens to the numbers. In Literacy, we are writing diaries as if we are Vikings heading for battle. Collaging is beginning this week in art - I am excited to see the outcomes of this. 

As December approaches, we have lots of little surprises in year 5 to try and bring a bit of Christmas spirit into what has been a crazy and challenging year! We hope the children enjoy it!

Thank you for those that have returned the Robinwood letter - the deadline is today (27th November) any issues, please get in touch. 

This weeks spelling are from the year 3/4 National Curriulum words that we sent home last half term; we will be testing the children on the entire list in a couple of weeks time. 

Straight
Favourite
Length
Possession
Century
Occasionally
Although
Natural
Minute
Regular

Have a good weekend.

Spellings this week!

naylorn on: Year 5 Blog

We have completed another week and we are creeping closer and closer to the Christmas period. At the moment, we are trying to help the children get to grips with Google Classroom, our online learning platform - this is NOT homework although they may want to log on and try some activities. Please still use Mirodo for homework.

We just want to say a massive thank you to all of you for being so patient and understanding so far this year. The spellings this week can be found below and they will follow the rule of 'words ending in -ible'.

terrible 

legible

sensible

horrible

possible

credible

visible

edible

reversible

responsible

Have a lovely weekend!

Mr J and Mrs H
