Summer 2019

Summer 2.7 - week beginning: 15.07.19

 

Literacy - Our goal is to finish our book for this half term: Kensuke's Kingdom. It is a fantastic book, chock full of amazing vocabulary and twists and turns! Each literacy lesson will be geared towards the different parts of the book.

Science - Finishing our topic of investigations this week. The pennies worked very well (although it turns out contact lense solution ISN'T very good at removing dirt!)

Humanities - Continuing thinking about the different daily activities groups of Mayan society gets up to!

ICT - Continuing our independent Scratch work - and then moving on to looking at how transitions and animations and timings work within Powerpoint.

Literacy - Learning about Playscripts this week, culminating in us writing our own. These are one of  the trickiest types of writing of all!

Science - Investigating why pennies turn green this week - and what we can do about cleaning them up! Then following our own investigations this week!

Humanities - Continuing thinking about the different daily activities groups of Mayan society gets up to!

ICT - Continuing our independent Scratch work - and then moving on to looking at how transitions and animations and timings work within Powerpoint.

 

** It is worth noting that lots of homeworks (especially maths) won't have been given out last week due to the very bitty nature of the week (Mayan Day, INSET, Transition morning, etc) but I'm sure everyone will be back on it next week!

Summer 2.5 - week beginning: 01.07.19

 

A quite unusual week this week! We'll have to cram is as much work as we can into two days in Year 5! The reasons are as follows:

 

Monday PM - Rearranged Sports Day (fingers crossed for no rain!)

Tuesday - Normal!! Science today and our experiment to clean pennies will be in full swing!

Wednesday - Transition morning! A chance to meet your new teachers!

Thursday - Mayan Day. Loads of Mayan related activities. See your teacher about what to wear!

Friday - INSET Day. Let's hope everyone can enjoy the sunshine!

 

Hopefully back to normal next week :-)

Well Happy Summer to everyone! We hope you all had an amazing rest (particularly with all that glorious sunshine over the weekend!) and are ready to step it up a gear in the last half term of Summer!

 

Lots of exciting things coming up this half term: Sports Days, the last swimming swap for Y5 (see school newsletters as 5CH and 5M won't start swimming for another few weeks) and the whole school chess competition! Over 170 entrants this year!

 

As usual with the beginning of a new half term, there are new units to learn! Here is a flavour of the things we will be getting up to in the coming weeks and months!

 

Literacy - Describing a setting for the next 2 weeks, including stimulus of the Rainforest and how to contrast our descriptions. Maybe even using anadiplosis...!!

Science - Branching Keys and databases. How do they work and can we make our own!?

Humanities - What do we know about the Mayans? Looking at Mayan artifacts this week and discussing what they could be used for

ICT - Acid Express sound editing and creation software. Exploring the program this week.

 

For the start of this half term, 5SH and 5D are swimming. Please make sure you have the correct equipment (the baths are very strict about no shorts with pockets!) and that your child has given their class teacher a goggle letter if they wish to bring them.
