Year 5 – Autumn 1

Welcome back year five! You have all settled into year five brilliantly and I hope to see you keep the high standards up for the rest of the year.

This year we are lucky to have extra adult support in our class; Mr Daynes and Mrs Safiyanik will be with us every day; Mick and Edwina will be with us on Monday mornings, Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings; and Mrs Shepherd will also be listening to readers on Monday afternoons.

This half term our topic is Aviation. We will also be learning about a variety of things in different subjects. Later in the half term we have a wonderful trip to Manchester Airport to look forward to. We get to explore terminal two, visit the Raddison hotel, watch the planes take off and landing, look around Concorde and even sit in the cockpit of the old DC-10!

This term we are learning:

  • Maths – Place Value, Addition & Subtraction and 3D Shapes
  • English – Adventure Stories and Recounts
  • Topic – Aviation
  • Science – Forces
  • PE   – Benchball
  • ICT – Digital Music

We were really close to achieving silver so make sure you keep it up next year.

Internet Safety

On Friday, year five and six were visited by two ladies who came to discuss internet safety. They explained about the age limits on various websites, what dangers to look out for and what to do if you do not feel safe.

What did you learn?

Year 5 – Spring 2

Welcome back year five, and welcome back Miss Shahbaz. This half term our topic is WWII and we will be going on a trip to Tatton Park to learn about what life was like for evacuees during the war.

If you would like to complete some extra homework, please visit Education City where I have created some new ‘My Cities’ for you to have a go at. You can also have another go at the older ‘My Cities’ as it is always good to revisit previous work. TT Rockstars is another great website and app where you can practice your times tables.

How The Moon Moves

In Science, year five have been learning about Space. For their final lesson, they discovered how the moon moves. The children worked in groups to produce a model which demonstrates the way the moon rotates and translates around the earth. They also discovered the four different moons we experience and how long the cycle takes. Do you know what they are and how long it takes?

School Council Meeting

Two pupils from year five attended the School Council meeting this morning with Mr Daynes, then came back to tell their class about the meeting. They explained that the council were trying to think of ideas to raise some funds for our school and asked the children if they had any suggestions. If you have any ideas, feel free to comment below.
