Good afternoon everybody - Happy Friday!
This week, we have been working hard on our English unit to complete it with some pleasing results. In Maths we have been working on fractions, particularly improper fractions and mixed numbers. In Science and Geography, we worked on what the components of an electrical circuit are and how to make them. Whilst in Geography, we explored how we use w and revisited the features of a river system.
On Monday, we enjoyed another fun-filled French session with Madame Jordan, thinking about pets and how to describe the animals that we keep at home as pets and in the afternoon, we made Electrical circuits and tested different materials to see if they were insulators or conductors.
We finished the week off with double P.E. - swimming on Thursday afternoon and today, Mrs Edwards (our Saints coach) carried out a session on football skills and small 7 a side games.
Spellings are now on Dojo for the groups, after Easter, it's the 2nd column, a paper copy was sent home last week. I have been impressed by how many people are reading every night, keep it up! The Wider Curriculum home learning I have had in, has been superb, some really good quality pieces of home learning, (Have a look at the home learning being created in the gallery.) So well done everybody (parents too!).
After Easter, we will be starting our new History topic of Medieval Monarchs, finishing fractions in Maths, starting a new text in English, starting Forest School every other Tuesday and there are some other exciting things on the horizon.
Children's quotes regarding their highlights of this half term:
" I really enjoyed making electrical circuits and drawing circuit diagrams."
"Swimming was brilliant, it is a life skill, that I've really enjoyed learning. I feel so confident in the water and I have improved so much."
"I have really enjoyed Maths this term, my understanding of fractions has really improved 2/8 of 32 is 8."
"I've really enjoyed Art this half term and have produced by best artwork ever!"
The children have worked really hard this term and I have been proud of their efforts and their maturity of attitude to their learning, so well done year 5!
Have a great Easter, spend quality time together, get out and about and enjoy the sunshine when it arrives and don't eat too many chocolate eggs!
See you on Monday 25th April.
