Year 5 2019 -2020
Miss Gold, Mrs Murdock and Miss Bennett.
Welcome to Year 5! Please scroll through our page to find important information and to see all the exciting things we have been up to :-)
Year 5 visited Shree Geeta Bhawan Hindu Temple this morning (Thursday 2nd October). Children took in the colouful sights around the temple, learnt about the many different deities of worship and got to experience a Hindu prayer in practice. Pupils received many Dojo points for their impeccable behaviour throughout the morning. Well done Year 5!
On Friday 13th September, our Key Stage 2 children took part in an overnight experience at school to gain an understanding of what it is like to sleep rough. Our Year 3 and 4's were in an overnight shelter (school hall) whilst Years 5 and 6 slept outside in cardboard shelters they put together themselves. This has been a significant event which links with this term's topic on Dignity of the Human Person and has underpinned many of our thought provoking discussions around Homelessness and other social issues.
PLACE VALUE - DECIMALS
SCIENCE - THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
Year 5 have been learning about the circulatory system and the different components that make up our blood. Ask your child to tell you what the functions of the following are:-
* RED BLOOD CELLS
* WHITE BLOOD CELLS
We made blood smoothie's to represent the different components.
PASSIONATE ABOUT POETRY!
Year 5's have kick-started their Literacy lessons this academic year by immersing themselves in Poetry Literature. They have been studying a wide range of poetic styles and identifying the many different features that make for an exciting poem. WWII poetry has been a large focus area, making cross-curricular links with our History topic. The children of Year 5 did an excellent job of performing class poems in small groups to the rest of the class. Well done Year 5!
