Year 5B

We've still got an 'Elfy' appetite for maths!

Year 5 have been busy solving Christmas Mysteries for Mrs Claus this morning. Little Elves have been pinching her puddings, so there isn't enough to share. We have loved being chief inspectors and using our maths skills to find the culprit Elf!

The children loved doing some Christmas themed art this afternoon. They experimented with wax and water to see how the wax didn't absorb the water colour. Look at the beautiful results!


The Space Race

The children were really enthused to learn about the great space race this afternoon. They hunted around the room to find out all about who got to space and when!

We have been practicing our football skills in PE this half term. This term, we have been working hard on applying our team work and skills to playing on the pitch at play times as well as in PE lessons. 

How well can we describe?

We put our description skills to the test this week in Literacy. Using a picture from our text 'Journey', one of us had to describe, while the other had to draw. The drawer had no idea what the picture was, until the timer had stopped. Some drawings turned out rather accurate! 

Amazing Art - It's out of this Galaxy.

5B have been working hard, using multiple materials, to layer up their galaxy scenes. The finish products are quite impressive (and displayed outside our room!). 

Check out our 'Check Out'!

posted 4 Dec 2017, 00:21 by Melanie Lambert

At the end of every week in Year 5 we do something we like to call a check out. This gives the children the opportunity to share what they have been proud of during the week, as well as think about things they would like help to improve. It always leaves us feeling happy, like we have all achieved something :)

Big Maths Beat That!

We are starting to realise, no matter how good we our at our basic calculation skills, that we need practice to help us beat our best! Today, we tried to really focus, and Hira and Isla have shown us proof that practice makes perfect! 

CLIC clinic!

This morning, the children became the teachers (for a small, designated amount of time!). They took to their CLIC tests and helped each other out with questions they sometimes find more challenging. The children that were taught by others felt more confident and enjoyed their more personal learning experience, while the children that taught felt they had improved their explanation skills and loved that they had helped! 

Spelling Patterns

This week Year 5 are looking at tial and cial words. We warmed up by showing our communication and teamwork skills to match up halves of words and see if we could identify patterns! Apparently cial usually follows and vowel and tial usually follows a consonant!
