Year 5 - Autumn 1 - Week 2

Date: 13th Sep 2019 @ 2:51pm

            

This week has been another busy one in Year 5! 

In worship this week we have begun our new monthly value of ‘Creation’. After watching the animation of the creation story, the children reflected on the incredible world we have been given, our duty to nurture and protect it and the wonderful lives we have been given.

The children are already learning so much from our new class read ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty; the true story of a young boy Jim Jarvis in 1860 and how he inspired Dr Barnardo
. Through this story so far, the children have learned about the lives of people in the Victorian times in advance of their visit to Tatton Park next week. 

We have enjoyed shared writing this week, where the children have created a narrative to the music video of Chris Malinchak’s ‘Good to Me’. The children have been working on developing clues within their writing so the reader doesn’t know the surprise just like in the music video! Well done! 

We really enjoyed our first mandarin lesson this week with Mrs Blagbrough from Merchant Taylor’s School. It was fascinating hearing her tell the class the many careers and opportunities  that are opened up you them by learning this language. The children, as ever, were full of enthusiasm and are looking forward to their next lesson and having a go at Chinese writing! 

Homework planners have been filled in and new homework books for your child to complete have been sent home also. At the front of each planner, the children have written their passwords for each of the following sites: My Maths, Times Table Rockstars and Sumdog. These sites are there to support your child's learning in maths. 
Children are to continue with their reading each day and learn their spellings each week.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone - we have sunshine forecast!

Year 5 - Autumn 1 - Week 1

What a wonderful start in Year 5 for everyone this week! 

The magic of the Trolls was sprinkled around the class this week as we watched clips of of the movie, discussing the theme 'happiness' and how we can have a 'Poppy the Troll' positive outlook in all we do. The children really enjoyed exploring the different emotions of different characters throughout the film, exploring why the actions of themselves and others can alter their emotions too. Celebrating our own uniqueness and individuality, the children all created their own 'rock troll' - each one, like themselves, totally different but special. 

This year, new to Year 5 is our new happiness journals. These journals have been a huge hit already, and the children have really enjoyed spending time each day recording what they have been grateful for each day and what has made them happy that day.

After considering how and why we should choose happiness, the Think Tank introduced our wonderful new school poster to the school. Thank you Think Tank - you've reminded us how we have choices and with optimism, we will all choose wisely in whatever decisions we make.

In our Collective Worship this week, we have revisited the biblical scriptures which underpin our school values. The children connected each value well to the teachings of Jesus and how we an apply them to our lives everyday.

The children in Year 5 have all been given a school planner this week. In this, they have written their spellings for this week to learn ready for next Thursday's spelling test.  Planners are to be returned each Wednesday as the children will then use them to record what their homework is each week. Homework will be sent home each Friday, starting next week.

Have a wonderful, sunny weekend everyone! 

Welcome to Year 5!

Mrs Martin would like to wish you a warm welcome to Year 5!

During the Autumn term, PE lessons will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Children must have the correct indoor and outdoor PE kits with them on both of these days.

Children in Year 5 will have their woodwind lesson each Monday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their instrument - which they will be provided with - in school each Monday.

Children are encouraged to bring a snack each day to be eaten at break times. Please remember to provide your child with only a healthy snack – e.g. fruit, vegetables.

Bottles of water with a sports cap type lid are also encouraged so the children can drink as and when they need it throughout the day.

Please see the Powerpoint below for all additional information to ensure your child has the best start to Year 5.

I am excited to see what wonderful things the new year brings.

Thank you!

Mrs Martin
