Autumn Term 2

In our Reach activity, we are focusing on computing in the form of blogging. Each week the children in the class will be in charge of the blog. So now I would like to hand over to the wonderful children of Year 5, who take great pride and pleasure in writing about their week.

This is Year 5’s Class Blog:

This week, we have been learning about multiplication 10’s 100’s and 1000’s by numbers such as: 127 times 100 =12,700.  In literacy, we have been writing persuasive letters to Siobhan Baillie. Also we have been learning about notes in music such as A B C D E G and F. In topic, we have been learning about Anglo Saxons and Vikings, interestingly the Vikings believed in many Gods such as Odin Thor Frey and Freya. In Dear time, we have been reading ‘Viking Boy’ and ‘The Boy Who Biked the World’.

Thank you for reading.

This week’s work:

This week, we have been focusing on Literacy, where we have been learning about modal verbs and subordinating conjunctions. We have also been using water colours to create our own wonders artwork based on the book 'We're All Wonders'. In topic, we wrote about the Vikings using some of our Literacy learning. We have also done a lot of handwriting practice in our spare time. Also on Thursday, we had an Advent Retreat ran by the Chaplaincy Team and we learned about the story of when Jesus was born.

All About our Week:

This week has been full of adventures and fun. We have learnt the notes to the song 'Here comes the ghost parade', furthermore we went deeper into our understanding of music. Some brave people, who had brought their instruments into school, played in front of our class (Year 5). Also we learnt about the Vikings and the Anglo Saxons in our Topic work. Fun fact: interestingly, the Vikings weren’t always ferocious beings, even though they were known for invading Britain. 

We hope you have enjoyed hearing about our week!
