Everyone has been very tired this week but have worked hard to keep focused on their learning.
We have started to learn about different land features and be able to describe them. We will then move on to thinking about why people might have wanted to explore these different places.
In maths we finished our unit of work on place value and everyone did brilliantly, showing they have a good grasp of number.
In PE on Friday we did a tough 'circuits' session. I think everyone found it very tiring, especially the star jump squats. Looking forward to another session next week. Have a think about other activities we could add in.
The children should have brought home spelling books and new spellings this week. Keep practising them everyone including your tricky word lists.
Have a great weekend and I will see you all with smiles on Monday :-)

We have really got into our learning now. Everyone can remember the names of the continents and are finding out about the features of each continent demonstrating their good research skills.
In French we have been recalling how to introduce ourselves to other people and ask each other questions. Everyone worked hard on their French accents - I am sure they are going to be amazing linguists.
Hockey has been so much fun. This week showed we were really controlling ball so we began to add in some interception and hitting the ball a little bit further.
Well done Kites another fab week :-)

What a busy full week back in school.
Everyone has enjoyed PE this week. We have begun learning hockey skills and have been making sure we are holding our stick correctly and learning to control the ball by dribbling - the races were an exciting end to our lesson.
Our writing was inspired by some intriguing objects - who was the person that these things belonged to? Everyone decided it must be some kind of explorer or adventurer.
In geography we have started to learn about the continents and oceans ready for understanding the different places that explorers might have visited and the reasons why.

Welcome back everyone.
We have had a great start to Y5 and everyone has been happy to be back in school. There have been some new routines to get used to and the children have been great at adjusting to these.
In class we spent time thinking about what we needed to do to have a successful Y5. We discussed: being polite, listening, facing challenges and working as a team.
Next week we will be starting our geography topic all about EXPLORATION
