Y5CH - Natterjack Toads 2018 - 2019

Mrs Hardman

 

A warm welcome to Class 5H with Mrs Hardman (teacher) and Miss Brown (teaching assistant)



We hope that you have all had a great summer holiday and are refreshed for the new academic year. We are very excited about all the fun and interesting learning we have lined up for Year 5.

 

Quick reminder: PE is on a Thursday and full PE kits must be kept in school 
                             Homework is set on a Thursday to be returned the following Tuesday

 

It is important that every child reads aloud to someone older at least three times a week for 10-15 minutes per read. After this, every child MUST have their reading record signed by an adult. Also, please could you ensure all children are practising their times tables up to 12.

We believe this half term is going to be the best half term yet. We have a lot of fun and exciting learning to do and we hope that all of our class have had a well-earnt rest and are ready to come back to give 100% in everything they do. 

 

This is our fabulous class dressed in pink for our breast cancer awareness charity day.

Our class alone raised £45 in just once day, thank you for your donations! 

MATHS

This half term in Maths, we are looking at place value with a focus on addition and subtraction. We have built Anglo Saxon houses within our History topic which we have used to measure area and perimiter in Maths. Below are some images of what we have been up to. 

 

ENGLISH

In English, we are looking at persuasion. We have focused on famous landmarks in the United Kingdom such as Stormont and the Houses of Parliament, This will seamlessly link into our Geography. Within this topic we have used Talk for Write to immitate the language used within famous persuasive adverts.

GEOGRAPHY

Our theme in class is 'A United Kingdom' and as part of our theme will be learning about lots of wonderful things such as Legends from the UK e.g. Robin Hood.

HISTORY

In History, we are learning about the history of the great Anglo Saxons. Here are some examples of the Anglo Saxon village we have created.

Please see examples of our Anglo Saxon work where we have created a chronological timeline of the Anglo Saxons. 


ART WEEK

Natterjack Toads are looking at the works of Andy Warhol.

The first task was to draw a self portrait . Do you recognise anyone?

Our wonderful parents joined us to work with the Natter Jack Toads. Thank you for coming.

 

 

POET VISIT

 

Monday 15th October 2018, we had a super visit from Jim MacCool. He was highly entertaining with musically themed poetry.

P.E.

This half term we have been learning about invasion games. The children have been using chest pass skills as well as learning to defend.

ENGLISH 

This term we have been reading Outlaw by Michael Moorpurgo. Natterjack toads have used the influences of Robin Hood to write their own version.

We have been reading lots of different persuasive texts and using our knowledge to persuade an audience to visit The Houses of Parliament and Stormont. 

We have used 'Talk for write' within our persuasion topic in English. Children have enjoyed making their own actions to their stories. We have desplayed what we have created in our books.

SCIENCE

In science we have been looking at different materials. We looked at which materials are the best insulators when keeping water warm. This is what we found out:
