We have had a fun filled, action packed first full week and we have lots to tell you about.
In English, we have been learning about poems and how to write one; we have a poetry tool kit to help us. We are reading a poem/book called ‘Cloudbusting’, which is very engaging. We have written a Truth poem, and a poem about ‘Lucy Bronze’ and we have improved a poem called ‘I Like’ by adding pre and post modification to the nouns.This subject is great fun and I am looking forward to learning more!
In maths this week, we have learnt how to round to 10, 100 and 1000. We also explored place value using grids to help us. We are now experts at reading the different columns, as well as writing and rounding the number. We are looking forward to next week so we can learn more!
We have had an amazing first week together!
Two children wanted to share some of their experiences of our first week back with you.
Before I came to school I wasn’t feeling nervous at all. I actually was feeling confident, calm and excited. When we were waiting to come in I had a nice feeling of seeing everyone again. the first day was really fun, we got to do a lot but it was very relaxed. I really like my teachers and am looking forward to spending my Year 5 with them.
When I came in for the first time it seemed really busy but I soon saw lots of familiar faces. I went down to my class to find all my friends. Then we went in and started to explore. All of this felt a bit strange but normal in a way. The best bit of the day was seeing everyone again and going out to play and have fun. Lunchtimes are a bit different but I have soon settled in and everything is starting to feel familiar now. I am excited about Year 5!
We are all looking forward to an action packed week to come.
Have a fun and restful weekend.
We have had a fantastic first week back at school in Year 5!
5RW enjoyed being artistic and used micrography to draw their self-portraits. They also displayed some beautiful handwriting, invented their own chocolate bar and learned how to stay healthy using the 10 a day strategies. It has been wonderful to get to know each other better and have fun as a class! Have a look at some of 5RW’s photos and work:
