Welcome to Year 5
Tower Wood PowerPoint
Homework and Overviews
During our PSHE lesson, we focused on the key skill of teamwork. We talked about the other skills that are linked to this I.e. collaboration, listening to others and negotiation. The challenge ‘build the tallest tower’ resulted in some very interesting ideas and towers! Super work year 5!
Today, we experimented with different moves to represent our ‘superhero’ moves. These moves will be incorporated into our dance next week.
Christmas Fair Shortbread
We had great fun this morning making the Christmas Shortbread for the Christmas Fair. We have some very talented bakers who took charge weighing the ingredients and then demonstrated the correct techniques to combine the ingredients together. The shortbread turned out beautifully and sold out within 30 minutes. Junior Great British Bake Off, here we come!
Year 5 have been working incredibly hard with their Christmas art using lots of different techniques.
Today, we practiced the many of the skills needed in preparation for the athletics competition. The children once again showed their perseverance, resilience and sportsmanship towards each other, well done year 5!
Today, we used the maths resources to help us investigate square and cube numbers. We found that once we had completed the first few, we found patterns which made it easier to complete the rest of the numbers.
Autumn 2 Overview
Autumn 2 Spellings
Today, we looked at artwork depicting the ‘Flight to Egypt’ as depicted in the Gospel of Matthew.
Trip to the Lancashire Museum
The Big Frieze
Today, we talked about the significance of the ‘Big Frieze’. We ordered the frames and linked them to the Old and New Testaments.
This half term we have learnt new hockey skills and enjoyed applying these new skill in games.
Today, we worked in small groups to investigate the question ‘the taller the person, the longer the arm’. We measured each persons arm length and height and then plotted the results on a scatter graph, before analysing the results.
We had a lovely time today, meeting our seeds for the first time!
The Macmillan coffee afternoon was the charity of choice for year 5 and 6 to support this half term. The children worked incredibly hard serving cakes to the many visitors we had. A huge thank you to all the parents who supplied the delicious cakes.
A huge well done to the fabulous homework from this half term!
