Y5 - Elephant

25/9/21

What a great week we have had. They wrote persuasive letters yesterday and I was really impressed with their concentration and quality of writing. They painted their river models on Thursday which show the journey of the river from source to mouth. 

 

They have now got their Reading Eggs logins so they can get cracking!

Continue with TTRS and My Maths homework.

Please make sure you sign their Reading records every time you hear them read; they can read to you whilst you are cooking or washing-up.

 

Congratulations to the 3 pupils who represented the school at Mad Olympiad on Thursday afternoon.

 

It's the Learning Detectives election on Tuesday afternoon so I hope they are busy preparing their speeches.

Don't forget it's Meet the Teacher on Wednesday after school so I'm looking forward to meeting you.

 

These are the spellings ready for Friday's test:

 

musician

magician

politician

technician

invention

detention

caption

creation

imagine

important

 

Looking forward to another great week of learning.

 

17/9/21

Another amazing week. They are now in a routine for morning work.

We have been learning about modal verbs and we read the book 'How to live forever' which made them question whether they would like to live forever.  

In the calculation lesson, we were multiplying 3 digit numbers by 1 digit and they worked hard on their presentation.

 

Thank you to all those who sent in boxes. The children have started creating their river models using papier mache; a messy activity!

 

I hope your child has been able to log on to TTRS and My Maths and I hope to send their Reading Eggs logins home next week.

 

Don't forget spelling tests are on Fridays and Reading Records are also collected in Fridays.

Looking forward to another week of learning.

Have a great weekend.

Curriculum map Term 1

Hello Elephants.

My name is Mrs Watts and I taught Year 4 when Mrs Johnson was on maternity leave and Year 5 the previous year as a Job Share. I covered several classes as a supply teacher this year.

I am so excited about being back to teach Elephants. We are very lucky to have Mrs Woodward and Mrs Baker-Haynes still working with us too.

 

Attached is a curriculum map to show what we will be learning in Term1; I hope you find it useful to know what is being taught.

 

PE will be on Tuesday and Friday afternoons, starting this week, and most importantly, we will be swimming in Term 4 even though Rhinos will be swimming in Term 1.

 

Reading books will be chosen on Monday and log in details for TTRS, My Maths and Reading Eggs will be sent home soon. Spellings will be given out on Fridays.

 

I know we will have a wonderful and busy term 1 and I can't wait to start!

 

If there is anything you want to ask, feel free to have a chat with one of us at the start or end of the day.

 

Mrs Watts
