Year 5

It's gone all Greek!

It's gone all Greek! 1

 

   Autumn 2018 - The Greeks

   This term, Year 5 are investigating the Greeks and how they have affected the world.  We will look at 'Ancient Greece' through to 'Modern Greece' - comparing between the two and how Greece is similar or different to the UK.

 To kick start our Greek investigation, we held a Greek toga party and tried all things Greek.  Some brave children tried the Octopus!!!  

 What else has been going on!

 * We had a visit by the 'Life Bus', it visited and we talked about healthy living and what we can do to stay healthy.

 * We've been getting free fruit to support our healthy bodies and we take part in daily 'Brain Breaks'

 * As a school we have helped create the school displays - History, Geography, Art, RE etc. 

 * Some of us in Year 5 have taken part in sporting activities with other schools e.g. football and cross country running

 * Learning some great songs with Aled in our classes and then in singing assembly.

 * Started the 'Behaviour Bands' - we have to complete a set of criteria before we get a particular band. We first have no band, then we aim for a 'Rainbow', then a 'Bronze', followed by a 'Silver' and a 'Gold' band. Each new band we get we have a treat/ trip to help us keep showing our great behaviour. 

* Designing our own Christmas cards that can be printed and sold to raise money.

 

What is coming up!

* Body Percussion-This is a whole school activity that uses are body to make noises while using text to tell a story!

* Fireworks night - this is when the whole school, organised by Miss Jones, celebrate Bonfire Night with our families

* A school disco so we can let our hair down and raise money for the school

* Christmas parties

* Christmas and getting ready for the new year to begin.

Behaviour Bands - This shows you what each child must achieve before getting a reward for their excellent behaviour. Every child has one copy, and is highlighted when they achieve and show brilliant behaviour. Children can access this anytime to see what they need to work on to get to the next level.

This is our non-chronological report about Hobbits

This is our non-chronological report about Hobbits 1
This is our non-chronological report about Hobbits 2
We have been looking at a range of non-chronological reports.  We have looked at the similarities and differences between them.  Based on this, we have decided on some tools to use when we write our own.

We started the Hocus Pocus theme with a little bit of magic!

Mr Kops amazed us with his card trick, while Mrs Lambert and Miss Garrod practised their mind reading skills.

Then they taught us how to do magic too.

Why don’t you try it? 

 

Think of a number between 1 and 10 any number will do,

Now take that number and multiply it by 2

Are you ready?  Good, add 6

Halve the number in your head

Subtract the number you first thought of 

and the number you are now thinking of is...

...3

 

 

Who has been in our classroom?

After discovering some strange objects, we wrote a recount of the events.  We each had our own ideas about what had happened and used the evidence to prove it.  Did our visitors come from Narnia?  Was there a portal in our very own classroom?  It definitely got us thinking.
