Week 7 Highlights 20.12.19

 

One term down two to go! It has been a packed term with lots of exciting events and learning taking place. On Monday, we had the chance to make some lovely doughnuts. On Tuesday, we celebrated Chanukah by completing fun crafts and watching films. Some parents were able to join us at school which we are very grateful for. A huge thank you to all parents and carers who have been able to attend any of the events we have had this term! We have also had a winter clean (projects and PE kits have been sent home) and therefore we are ready for the Spring term.

Our favourite moments…

v  In English this week, we continued to learn about setting descriptions. We colour coded the WAGOLL for the key features. We were looking for the four senses, metaphors and similes. The children have worked hard on incorporating all of the techniques taught to enhance their writing.

v  In Maths, we have been learning about cubed numbers. The children have been learning how to represent these numbers in a variety of ways.

v  Remember…

1.No homework has been set. However, please learn the lyrics to the song over the holidays in preparation for our class assembly.

Any time you're Lambeth way
Any evening, any day
You'll find us all
Doin' the Lambeth walk

Every little Lambeth gal
With her little Lambeth pal
You'll find 'em all
Doin' the Lambeth walk

Everything free and easy
Do as darn well pleasey
Why don't you make your way there?
Go there; stay there

Once you get down Lambeth way
Every evening, every day
You'll find yourself
Doin' the Lambeth walk

Have an amazing holiday and Happy New Year when it arrives,

Mrs Webley and Miss Begum

Week 6 Highlights 13.12.19

What an incredible end to our WW2 Topic! A huge well done to the Y5 children throughout this term. They have put so much effort into their work both inside and outside of the classroom. ‘VE Day’ took place on Thursday and it was fantastic to see displayed all of the work children have been completing. I am so proud of each and every child!  

Our favourite moments… 

v  In English this week, we were learning about setting descriptions. We have been thinking about our senses and how they can help create imagery in our writing. In addition to this, we have explored the metaphors and similes which can be used to further create that image in the readers mind. 

v  In Maths, we have been learning about square numbers. The children have been learning how to represent these numbers using arrays too.  

v  Remember…

1. Homework has been set and is due on Wednesday’s. (Remember no spelling sentences this week but please practise the statutory spelling list for your test next week) 

2. Please ensure your child brings their planner on Monday as their weekly spelling test will be recorded in there. 

3. Doughnut making (Monday 16th December 2019 at 2:00pm) letters have gone out. Please return the slips if you are able to attend.  

4. Chanukah Fun Day. Remember it is non-school uniform and to dress in bright colours. 

Have a great weekend, 

Mrs Webley and Miss Begum

Week 5 Highlights 6.12.19

This week children have had the opportunity to look at the mark scheme for the assessments which took place. From this, they have set their own targets and identified the areas of their learning which can be improved. It has been a pleasure to watch the children reflect and take ownership of their learning.

Our favourite moments…

v  In English this week, we continued to learn about poetry. We compared and contrasted a range of poems to High Flight and had to justify which poetic key features had been used. During Thursday’s lesson, we chose whether we wanted to write a narrative or a sonnet. We enjoyed being given the freedom to choose the writing task we completed!

v  In Maths, we have been learning about multiplication. This week we have learned about common factors and prime numbers.

v  In History this week, we learned about the experience of evacuees. Mrs Scott, who teaches in Reception, allowed us to listen to her grandmother’s story of when she was evacuated at the age of 13. We spent one lesson watching a series of videos and making notes. This was to prepare us to write a letter as an evacuee. Hearing about someone’s first-hand experience really helped to bring WW2 to life. A huge thank you to Mrs Scott and her wonderful grandma!

Remember…

1. Homework has been set and is due on Wednesday’s. (Remember to do the spelling sentences linking to adverbs of possibility e.g. certainly etc.)

2. Please ensure your child brings their planner on Monday as their weekly spelling test will be recorded in there.

3. VE Day (Thursday 12th December 2019 at 2:30pm) letters have gone out. Please return the slips if you are able to attend. Children are to come to school in anything linking to WW2. They could come as a land girl, an evacuee or as a soldier- these are just some ideas.

- Girl’s costumes must include either a skirt or a dress.

- If your child is coming as a soldier, no guns are allowed.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs Webley and Miss Begum
