Year Five Suggested Reading List
Year 5 created self portraits during art. They then transformed those self portraits into some shape poems about themselves. Here are some wonderful examples.
MATHS FRAME WEBSITE
This website has lots of fun games and useful websites to help with your Maths learning. The username and password have been posted on our Google Classroom page.
As part of Cultural Celebration Month, we have been enjoying reading "Overheard in the Tower Block," a book of poetry by the Children's Laurate, Joseph Coelho. We were inspired by his poem about a pumpkin, and after creating a bank of vocabulary and phrases, we wrote our own poems about the life cycle of an apple.
Ancient Greeks Assembly
We performed our assembly for the whole school. We enjoyed re-telling the story of Thesus and the Minotaur and we hope that we informed and entertained!
Science - Acids and Alkalis
We used litmus paper to test if different liquids were acids or alkalis and we recorded our results on a pH scale.
RE and Art
On Friday, we created models of the first humans, as created by God in Genesis. Here are some examples of our great work.
London Fire Brigade - Fire Safety Visit
We were lucky enough to have a visit from Kaival from the London Fire Brigade. He taught us the importance of installing a smoke alarm and creating a fire evacuation plan with your family.
English - Drama
We have been reading the book "I Believe in Unicorns," by Michael Morpurgo. During an English lesson, we went outside to work as a class and act out key scenes. We had to imagine that we returned to our village to find that it had been destroyed by bombs during the war. We also re-created an important part of the story in which children worked together to save books from a library.
Science - Testing Materials
We began our first Science topic - "Materials" - by designing and conducting an investigation to test how hard different materials including viscose, plastic and foil are. We used a paper clip to scratch the materials and recorded how long it took for each one to scratch.
