Year 5 have been making sculptures and houses using a new piece of software called Google SketchUp Make - take a look below.

Welcome to the year five class page 2017.

 

My name is Mr. McCarthy and I will be the class teacher this year alongside Mrs. Sweeney my LSA. We both look forward to working with your children to make learning a fun and interesting experience that can be used both inside and outside of the classroom. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate in approaching either Ms. Sweeney or I. We look forward to a fun, productive and rewarding school year.  

Y5 Curriculum

The topic for IPC this term is Fit for Life. The pupils engaged in an exercise activity through dance together with year six. All pupils then had the opportunity to create their own healthy juice drink in groups which they thoroughly enjoyed.

This term year five are studying Wild Boy by Rob Lloyd Jones. The school was honoured to have Rob visit the school today and have a discussion with the children surrounding Wild Boy, his work as an author and how he began creating his novels.

Year five are currently learning about materials in science. Most recently they learned about thermal insulators and thermal conductors. The children participated in an investigation surrounding this topic. They examined the effect that a thermal insulator (pupils in green bibs) has on frozen iced lollipops (pupils in blue bibs). The pupils in red bibs played the role of hot air. They discovered that the thermal insulator can keep the iced lollipops frozen if completely protected from the hot air.

The topic for IPC this term is Fit for Life. The class discussed what they do to stay fit while having fun. In groups the pupils created one obstacle for an obstacle course, then concentrated on their individual design of their obstacle. Finally, their obstacle course came to life and they had an opportunity to try it for themselves. They certainly brought the fun into fitness!

Year five and six paid a visit to Kensington Science Museum today, attended the 'It Takes Guts' workshop learning about the digestive system. Some pupils also had the opportunity to assist in various parts of the worship as well as touring parts of the museum which they thoroughly enjoyed. Having lunch on the steps of Kensington Garden next to The Albert Memorial was an added bonus, particularly the October sun!

This week the first two pen licences were awarded in year five for continuous neat handwriting and exceptional work. Well done to these pupils!

The topic for IPC this term is Making the News. For an entry point, year five and six participated in a news quiz together. Each house had two representatives from each class. All pupils were involved and given the opportunity to win more points for their house. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the quiz and had fun learning.
