THIS WEEK WE WERE AWSOME!!
It was super duper fun!!
We learned a little about what life was like for Jewish people during the Holocaust. We heard from a Jewish surviver; it was depressing but amazing at the same time.
Working on our eight x tables
We're now a boss at it!
We also started testing ourselves with multiplication and division!
On Thursday it was non-uniform day. We started our collages in the style Klimmt.

on friday last week we carried on with multiplication by playing lots of games.we had lots of fun.we did multiplication 4 in a row,times tabe hexigon and we did questions where we had to find out wich anser was right.
This week we have been reading more of Rose Blanche. We also acted out a freeze frame from the the book (the picture to the left). A little boy escaped a lorry and was caught - we don't know why he was running away yet...we also wrote a recount of the scene.
We have been learning about rounding decimal numbers. Then played a game with a sheet where we had to get 4 in a row by using a dice to get the number then round it to the nearest tenths. Roll it, round it!
ART creating patterns
In art we have been learning about Gustav Klimt. He used patterns to make collages. His most popular patterns where his golden leaf patterns that where made from real golden leaf.
Hope you enjoyed the blog! Stay tunned for more next week

This week we have been revising our 6x tables, where we have had to say it normally and then backwards. Our six times table is 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72 - how quickly can you do it? We've also been using this to calculate our 60 and 0.6 times table!
In literacy we started our book - Rose Blanche - which is about a child living in Germany during world war 2. We haven't read all of it yet but we read the first three pages and it is about the soldiers in Germany going to war and how life has changed/stayed the same for Rose. We can't wait to read more next week!
Also, don't forget to practise your spellings!

We've got straight into our work today - already kicking off with some maths then writing a book prediction about Rose Blanche (I think it's about WW2...).
This afternoon we did a time capsule which had a head line of today's papers and a little note to our future selves. We also added a picture of ourselves, our handspan and our height mesuared with string.
We're all so ready for year 6 and have lots to look forward to! It's good to be back...
As this will be my last post for 5S, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your support throughout the year. The children have all worked extremely hard and as a consequence reaped the results that they deserve. I am in no doubt that they will have a successful transition to Year 6. They are all certainly ready for the summer holiday; as am I! Thank you so much for all of your kind wishes and generous presents too; I really appreciate it.
I have loved teaching the children in 5S this year and I am sad not to be with them again next year. They have been an absolute pleasure.
Thank you once again and have a wonderful summer.

We had an amazing day yesterday in Cambridge. We started with punting on the river Cam which was a real treat. We had an excellent guide and discovered many interesting facts about the area. This was followed by a walking tour during which we had to find and solve clues to a murder! For a while we thought it was going to be a character called Nathan, which provided great amusement, but he was eliminated from our enquires right at the end of the trail. We finished off the day in the Fitzwilliam Museum where we spent time examining the intricate tapestries and then the armoury. It was a fun packed day but an exhausting one, as you can see by the following photos.
The children have been very busy designing and building fairground toys for their final D.T. project. The children had the chance to look at a variety of rotating fairground rides before designing and making their own ride using a rotating mechanism that they also constructed. The children all worked completely independently and I'm sure you'll agree they've done a wonderful job. I was so pleased with them that Mr Stock was even invited to come and inspect their rides and he was equally impressed. I have added the results of their efforts in the following slide show.
Apologies for not writing a blog last week, but it has been so hectic lately and the arrival of Ofsted certainly didn't make things easier!
In Science, we have been investigating different materials by making boats and then testing their durability. Although our predictions were mostly accurate, there were a couple of surprises!
Continuing with the Science theme, we had an amazing time when we visited Northgate for a Science lesson this week. It gave the children a real taste of what Science has to offer when they transfer there in Year 7, as we were in the laboratories experimenting with liquid nitrogen! Everyone was so enraptured with the lesson that I think they could have kept Mr Snowdon occupied with questions for another hour at least!
The second sports day that we had on Wednesday was a great success and I was really impressed with the sportsmanship that 5S displayed in the way they supported each other, their commitment to racing in difficult (hot) conditions and their general sporting conduct. Well done everyone!
The children have been brilliant and are still working so hard as we are busy trying to make sure that we complete all of the projects and units of work that we currently working on... keep going everyone, only two more weeks to go!
