What have we been up to?

As part of our Blue Planet topic, we have been learning about global warming and why it is important. We have used iPads to research facts, made posters and began to plan and create a news report that could be featured on newsround!

In maths, we have continued our work on fractions. We have been ordering and comparing fractions, looking at sequences of fractions and adding and subtracting fractions.

For RE, we joined with class 3 to create art work showing the Easter story. We used a variety of media, splitting the story into 6 key parts. Look out for these at our Easter service on 26th March! It was also unanimously agreed that we will be creating a rap next week ready for our own part of the service so watch this space!

In PE we completed our first lesson of circuit training. The whole class worked incredibly hard and we had a few sore bodies on Wednesday morning! The aim of this unit is to increase the pupils’ knowledge and awareness of health and fitness and for them to create their own circuits for themselves and others to attempt, whilst showing an awareness of what muscles are being used.

Finally, we had our trip to Blue Planet Aquarium today. All children were brilliantly behaved and had a great day seeing all of the creatures we have been learning about in real life.

Sport Relief

Next week is Sport Relief week. As part of this, all children will be running a mile (or more) as part of their weekly PE lesson. They will also be taking part in lots of class challenges, such as:

*Skip2bfit 2 minute challenge

* Limbo

* Hula Hooping

* Sack races

Every child has been sent home with their own sponsorship form tonight, which is for their mile challenge. All money raised will go towards Sport Relief.  Please return sponsorship forms before the end of half term (29.03.18).

Children are also invited to come into school in sports kit, or to dress up as their favourite sports star next Thursday and Friday (22nd and 23rd March) for a donation of £1.

Our year 5 maths has focussed on formal methods of multiplication and division this half term.

We have been:

Multiplying 4 digits by 1 and 2 digits

Dividing 4 digits by 1 digit

Dividing with remainders

We have now moved on to our fractions unit where we will be learning about:

* Equivalent fractions

* Improper fractions and mixed number fractions

* Number sequences

* Comparing and ordering fractions less than and greater than 1

* Adding and subtracting fractions

* Adding 3 or more fractions

* Adding and subtracting mixed number fractions

* Finding fractions of amounts





What we’ve been up to this half term…

I hope you’ve enjoyed our regular dojo updates and they have kept you well informed with what we’ve been doing! Here is an overview of our half term so far…


Our work this half term has been focussed around our Blue Planet topic. We have conducted a large amount of research which has improved our note taking skills. We read and analysed the book ‘Duffy’s Lucky Escape’, carefully considering language features used by the author. We also improved our narrative writing by creating word banks and writing our own versions of different parts of the story. We then put all we had learnt into practise by creating a big write for the story ‘Marli’s Tangled Tale’. This is another story linked to the problem of plastic in the ocean which the children are looking forward to reading this week.

Our finsl piece of writing of the half term (which we are currently editing) is our persuasive write to our MP about how we can help save the ocean. We will be writing up our final versions this week and sending them off!
