Afternoon Class 5!

 

I truly hope you are all doing well and keeping safe at home with your families.

I have updated each subject under the Home Learning Ideas icon above. There are lots of your favourites such as games from Complete PE, an Art Hub for Kids competition, music lessons using our voice to continue our topic in class and there is even a Minecraft yoga lesson to keep you calm and collected at home. Why not try these activities with a family member too to help keep everyone busy :)

 

I have had a lovely week helping out at NCPS with children of key workers. It has been busy but lots of fun. The school was incredibly quiet without you all.

I am home now and I will be checking the school email inbox for all of your home learning. So keep me updated with the work you have been creating! homelearning@northcrescent.org

 

Take care

Miss Whitwell

Dear Class 5

 

I hope you are keeping well at this difficult time. I have uploaded lots of fun activities for you to keep busy with at home, see the Home Learning icon above. I will be uploading new activities and notes from myself weekly for you to look at.

If you have any work you are really proud of or you would like to keep me updated with what you have been up to, please email me using the following email address:

homelearning@northcrescent.org

Please make sure you put class 5 and your name in the subject of the email.

I check these daily - so it would be wonderful to hear from you!

 

Enjoy this time to spend with your families, playing games, making memories and don't forget to exercise where possible too! I will upload some PE activities that are easy to do in your front room :) Have fun!

 

Stay safe and I hope to hear from you all soon

 

Miss Whitwell

20-3-20 Year 4 and 5 came together at a tricky time to learn some sign language before the school closed. We learnt signs to an inspirational song "Fight Song" to spread a message of love and determination

23-1-20 Power thoughts workshop

During our Power Thoughts workshop, we learned about unwanted thoughts and welcome thoughts. We now have a toolkit of ways to listen to our welcome visitor who fills us with positivity. 

13-1-20 we used the tool of role play to solve friendship scenarios in PSHE. We now have our own toolkit to help those who have trouble in relationships.

Welcome back to the Spring term. Class 5 are very excited to begin their new topic, Choccywoccydoodah! Which is all about chocolate!

We will be studying the Mayan culture and using Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a hook for our English work. Even some of our science lessons on change of state will be linked to chocolate. We can't wait! See below for photos and updates on our topic so far...

16-12-19 Class 5's Christmas Party Plans this week

5.12.19 This week we tested water resistance using play doh in different shapes. We also tested Gravity, water and air resistance with our Viking longboats on the water.

27.11.19 Air resistance investigation

Still image for this video
During our science topic of forces, we looked at air resistance. We were challenged with making a parachute for an egg! We used maths measurement and design and technology skills to design and create our parachutes in groups. We then took it in turns to drop it from a height. We discovered that the larger the area of the parachute, the more air resistance it creates, causing the egg to fall slower. We even had two out of six eggs land without smashing! Watch our slow motion video for some of the action.

13-09-19 check out our amazing costumes for Roald Dahl day. We had the best time learning and reading more on the BFG, our current class book.

Welcome back to Autumn term!

 

This term Year 5 will be learning all about the Vicious Vikings! We will be linking English, Art, D&T and Geography to our topic when we learn about who they were and where they came from.

 

This half term our Science topic is all about Space! We will learn the planets in our solar system, how the sun, earth and moon orbit one another and the various phases of the moon.

 

We are really looking forward to learning new songs in Music, Religious stories in RE and how to look after our health and wellbeing in PSHE. Computing will be on E-Safety and we will also be practicing our maths skills using Sumdog and Times table rockstars once more.

 

Here's to a great half term! Keep checking our page for updates on what we have been up to!
