Summer 2024

Class Heroes 2023
We have chosen 7 individuals who we believe reflect our school values of respect, teamwork, happiness, pride, honesty and resilience.
Each class has been assigned a hero and the children will be finding out about them throughout the year. We will explore ways in which our hero has demonstrated our values, their achievements and legacies. Watch this space for updates. 
In Year 5, our hero is Nimal Purja. You can see all of the class heroes on the poster below and our special poster about Nim.

We’ve had a busy week leading up to the May half term holidays. The children thoroughly enjoyed their computing morning with Mr Bailey where they worked hard to explore selection whilst designing and coding a quiz on Scratch. Out design and technology day this half term was based on our Cooking and Nutrition unit where the children had to describe the process of beef production, research a traditional recipe and make changes to it, add nutritional value to a recipe by selecting ingredients and prepare and cook a selected meal.

In English, have produced an impressive first-person narrative based on the Literacy Shed video ‘Road’s End’. We have worked hard to incorporate direct and indirect speech into our story to show the persistent questions prompted by the driver of the vehicle. The children also used their grammar knowledge to use simile starters, relative clauses and a variety of complex sentences within their writing.

In maths, we have recapping converting units such as grams, kilograms, millimetres, centimetres and meters. We then used coin cards to calculate conversions between metric and imperial units of distance and weight. Most recently, the children have been developing their problem- solving skills in the context of money.

Another excellent week in year 5, keep up the hard work everyone!

We’ve had a busy start to the summer term and picked up where we left off before the Easter holidays. We are proud to have introduced the Daily Mile into our school day where we encourage the children to adopt an active, healthy lifestyle. Year 5 are enjoying their time on the grass field to complete the run, where we aim to show resilience, determination and pride. 

In English, wrote a fabulous character description about the antagonist of The Nowhere Emporium, the spiteful magician, Vindictus Sharpe. The children applied their knowledge of multi-clause sentences using subordinating conjunctions and relative pronouns in order to create a detailed description of the character. We recently have started planning our first-person narrative based on the Literacy Shed video ‘Road’s End’.

In maths, we began the half term by recapping our column method work where did 5-dgits add 5-digits, 4-digits subtract 4-digit, 4-digits multiply by 1-digit numbers and 4-digits divided by 1-digit numbers with remainders involved. We then progressed onto our fraction unit where we have worked hard this term to understand the link between fractions, percentages and decimals. The children have been converting improper fractions to mixed numbers to simplifying ordering and calculating them.  

Another excellent week in year 5, keep up the hard work everyone!
