Year 5 w/b 27th November

Date: 1st Dec 2023 @ 6:07pm

It has been another busy week in Year 5!

In English we completed the first of our writing outcomes from this unit publishing diary entries from the perspective of a young girl who discovered an enslaved person hiding in her barn. We have started exploring our next writing outcome, biography, looking at a model text about Martin Luther King.

In maths we have continued working on fractions: converting between mixed numbers and improper fractions, comparing and ordering fractions with different denominators. Some children have found this tricky. We will continue with this work in the early part of next week, but if you would like to support at home the following video might be helpful.

It was a very cold afternoon for PE on Wednesday, but the children had an active session outside continuing their football and netball units. Mr McAulay is impressed by the skills and talents of children in Y5 who are playing to a high standard. In art, children are working on their final Jackson Pollock inspired piece and we are looking forward to sharing their finished work with you. 

Forest School this morning was very cold, but the children had a wonderful session working in teams to build structures and shelters. In RE, we looked at which of our Christmas traditions are based on the nativity story and children thought of a message they could write on a Christmas card which reflects the true meaning of Christmas for Christians. We also had the pleasure of watching Reception's nativity dress rehearsal this week which was a good opportunity for children to think about the work we have done comparing the accounts in Matthew and Luke over the last few weeks. 

Next week we will be continuing our work and completing assessments in spelling, maths and reading. This will help us to evaluate this term's learning and plan for next term. Next Thursday morning is our class service at St Oswald's at 10:30 am - parents are welcome to attend. The service usually lasts around 30 minutes. On Friday we have our final Forest School Session and Rev. Sandi will visit in the afternoon to talk about the services she holds over Christmas and how St Oswald's celebrates Christmas.
