Diamond Class

Good Morning, 

 

I can't believe your final full week of Year 5 is upon us. I am really looking forward to seeing many of you on Thursday and Friday and I think the weather looks nice so bring a sun hat! I have put 5 days worth of learning below, however if you are in school please don't feel you need to complete it all!

 

Have a lovely week.

Good Morning, 

I hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some of the improved weather. I can't believe we are over half way through this term already! 

This week the topic theme is 'Out of this world' so i'd love to see lots of 'spacey' things going on! It was lovely to speak to most of you last week, but if I didn't manage to get hold of you I will try again this week. I am so proud of all of you and the attitude you are showing at the moment. Keep it up!

Begin your day with some exercise:

I hope you have all had a pleasant weekend and were able to enjoy the relatively nice weather. I know motivation can be waning at the moment and keeping your child's interest can be challenging. Please remember to only do as much as you can and definitely do not feel guilty if all the work for the week/day is not completed. I love seeing you work, so please keep it coming in!

 

Unfortunately the school server has decided to 'have a rest' this weekend. As soon as I am able to restart it I will upload this weeks topic grid and also some spelling work which some parents have been requesting. 

 

Have a good week.

Well done all of you for a fantastic first week back of home learning. Last week's family topic grid seemed to be a good one with lots of you learning about your senses, bones and organs.

Week 5

 

Dear Year 5,

 

I hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to enjoy the lovely weather. Here is your final weeks work before half-term next week. Unfortunately, due to a power cut at school I have not been able to access the school server to upload any pictures this week. Hopefully it should be back to normal next week.

 

I am in school Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week and so will have limited access to emails. On Thursday and Friday I will be available between 9-11 and 2-4.

Welcome back. I hope you all had a lovely half-term. We are continuing looking at different aspects of WW2 in our topic lessons this term and the children have really impressed me with their knowledge so far. In English we are studying War Poetry and some of the language choices used in these.

 

During Maths this we are focusing on division and using formal methods to aid us. We are also recapping on some of the place value work that we did over the autumn term. 

 

 

Welcome back to a new and exciting term!

 

Firstly, thank you so much to everyone for your lovely gifts over Christmas, they were very much appreciated.

Secondly, I would like congratulate Diamond Class on their first term in Year 5 and on their work towards Christmas time. We had lots going on, such as Art Week, singing rehearsals, Christmas carol concerts, art week, Friendship Day, parties, assemblies.

 

Moving forward this term, we have a new topic; World War 2! Having taught this topic previously I can safely say it is one of the most well received by the children. They already have so much knowledge and today have bombarded me with tales and facts they already know! I suspect many of you will be ordered to go in to the loft or understairs cupboard to dig out WW2 based artefacts from grandparents etc...I can only apologise for any inconvenience this causes! They are all so keen to share their family experiences.

 

We will be linking quite a lot of our learning to this topic, particularly in English. In English, we will be using WW2 evacuee experiences to create diary entries and write stories. In Maths, we are completing lots of learning on fractions, decimals and percentages. 

 

I will be uploading a homework grid for the Spring Term soon, as well as information in a topic letter/web about upcoming events and important things to remember.

 

For now, I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas breaks and New Year. I look forward to a positive and successful Spring Term!

11th October

 

We have continued with our Place value work this week; ordering a comparing numbers. We also took some time to look at negative numbers and investigated where they could be found and how we can order them on numberlines. Towards the end of the week we looked at number sequences (involving negative numbers) and tried to find missing numbers.

 

In English this week we have started our new book 'Floodland.' It is a book set in the future, where sea levels have risen and parts of England have been cut off. The book is set in Norfolk and explores a wide range of dilemmas and issues.  To aid our understanding, we took time this week to explore the landscape of Norfolk and discover where it is.

In English this week the class have been rounding off their Roald Dahl projects by writing their own 'Twits' chapter. We had some really imaginative pranks (so be warned!) and some fantastic writing throughout the class. The children have really worked well to use a range of descriptive writing. 

 

In Maths this week we have been working on numbers up to 1,000,000. We have explored rounding, ordering and partitioning these numbers.

 

Test you child at home - Give them a number e.g. 1,324,211. How many ways can they partition it? 1,000,000+300,000, + 20,000 + 4,000 + 200+10+1  Can they do it any other ways?

Friday, 20th September.

 

The class have really impressed me over the last two weeks at how well they have settled down to their learning and begun life in Year 5. In Maths at the moment we are having a big focus on place value and recognising the value of digits up to 1,000,000. We have been working on partitioning, rounding and ordering of these numbers. 

 

In English we have have been studying one of Roald Dahl's most famous books 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.' We have been doing lots of descriptive writing and the children have really worked hard to create vivid images of Willy Wonka's Chocolate room. 

Reading stars for children to complete at home. If your child manages to read 4 times a week at home and parents sign their diary, children receive a lottery ticket towards half term draw. If children complete one of these star tasks each week they also receive a lottery ticket.

Welcome to Diamond Class!!

Welcome back. I hope you had an enjoyable summer and are all refreshed for the year ahead.

Please find below a class letter, topic page and homework grid containing some details about the exciting Autumn Term.

 

I look forward to meeting you all at the upcoming parent coffee morning next week.
