Week beginning 30th January 2017

We finally finished our Mayan Masks.

We have been looking at slides through a microscope to develop observational skills.

The topic for the Spring Term is the Mayans

On Friday 6th January, Year 5 had an adventurous day all about their top topic, the Mayans.  In this fun packed day they did cooking, art and learnt about the Mayans on the Ipads.  The main part of the day was making Mayan Masks out of modroc.   This particular part of the fun day was the children’s favourite activity! This was also the messiest activity as the modroc got everywhere!!!

We also made some delicious Mayan food which was guacamole and salsa!  We then ate this yummy food at the end of the day with some tangy cheese doritos!

Daisy in Year 5 said—It was fun making the masks but the materials we used smelt REALLY bad!

Lajla and Jess said– that the food was absolutely delicious!

 

Science - Facts on Uranus

Moons

Uranus has a very big amount of moons seeing as it has 27 (fact found on Google)

Temperature

Uranus is -224c so it is very cold (fact found on Google)

Size

The size of Uranus is 25,362 km wide (fact found on Google)

Time to Orbit the Sun

It takes 84 years for the planet to orbit the sun so it is a very long time (fact found on Google)

 

Year 5 Class Assembly - Tuesday 29th November 2016

On Tuesday 29th November Year 5 had a class assembly we shared what we had learned inside and outside school.  We talked about what happened at Space Camp, when we met NASA astronaut Michael Foale, what we did for home learning, some fun facts we found out, some exoplanets that we made (exoplanets are where we can live) and a competition to find out which planet is best.  The winner is PLUTO.

We are really proud of our assembly we thought it was amazing!

Space Camp - Thursday 24th November 2016

Year 5 had a sleepover at school in tents with names of different things you find in space.  Jess and Abi were in Hubble and Lajla and Eve were in Saturn 5 and they made a password to get in to the tent.  It was 5 to Saturn!

Year 5 met a NASA Astronaut last week Michael Foale

Our current topic is World War II and Earth and Space

Equipment Needed:-

PE is on a Monday and Wednesday:  PE Kit should be left in school and can be taken home to be washed at the end of each Half Term.

Children should bring in a water bottle which they have access to in the classroom.

Children have been given a new reading folder and diary; this should be in school on a daily basis as volunteers may hear children read at any time.

Homework Days

As a guide children in Year 5 are expected to do 2.5 hours of homework a week.

Children must read at least three times a week and you are expected to record in the reading record that you have heard them read, this is checked in school every Friday.

A Home Learning task is set every other Monday and children will be given 10 days to complete it.  The task is on a printed sheet which is stuck in the children's home learning books.  Books must be returned to school on the given date for marking.

Children have a spelling test every Friday, they will be given spellings in a yellow book which must come back to school the following Friday to allow them to be given their new spellings.  Test will take place in a red book which remains in school.
