Autumn 1

Week 3

It was tense in Maths today when we all became code-cracking agents! We had to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 working as a team to crack the codes before the bomb went off!!

Watch the dynamite blow in maths!!

Today in English, we designed our front covers for our persuasive leaflets. They had to be eye-catching with snappy titles. We listened to sounds of the Amazon Rainforest to inspire us.

Week 2

During Science this week we began our unit by investigating teeth, their functions and identified the by their correct names. We learned how we can tell whether an animal is a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore by looking at the kind of teeth they have in their mouth. We played Simon Says to identify our own teeth in our mouths correctly. We enjoyed our lesson and can't wait for more next week.

This week's Art lesson saw us saying that word.....(Christmas!!) as we had to design and make our charity Christmas cards in advance so they can be sent to the printer and arrive in time for the festive season.. We listened to the sounds of the Amazon rainforest while we worked so that it could help us with our writing in English.

Relaxing Art Lessons in Year 5

In English this week we have been adventuring down the Amazon in Brazil while learning to increase our powers of persuasion. We scoured different persuasive leaflets to work out how they tempt people to go or do or buy what they want you to. Be warned parents and carers.....we can use these new powers to get our own way!!

In RE this week we have been finding out about places of worship. W had to match signs and symbols and religious places to their correct faith. We did really well.

Week 1

Hello everyone!!


We've had a wonderful start to Year 5 and it has been a tonic to see all of our children looking so grown up and smart in their ties.

This week was all about getting back into routines and learning new ones.

We discovered that we will be journeying around the Amazon Rainforest, not only through our fantastic new book "The Explorer" by Katherine Rundell, but through our Science AND Humanities Topics. Super cross-curricular learning opportunities ahead.

In Art we used acrylic paint and a wide variety of paintbrushes to create different effects. Straight lines, curved lines, pointed ends, round and flat ends, size, all has such individual results. It was a very useful exercise.

We are on a mission to make sure that everyone can tie their own ties, we know it's new but practice makes perfect. I have included a link below to help you. It's worth doing for five dojos!!

Thank you Year 5 for being wonderful this week, you really have grown up!

See you on Monday!


Love Mrs Lynch








If you show me that you can tie your own school tie properly by Monday 10th of September, you can earn a whopping 5 Dojos!!
