Our new topic in literacy is: Romeo and Juliet.
We have already completed a week about it.
Within the week we have performed drama
In maths, we did adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions.
Do you know the difference between a Maya temple and a Mayan palace? This week we have been learning about Maya archaeology.
We are beginning to think about what we can show to parents and carers in our class assembly. Some dance perhaps?
Fun things we did this week:
The muddy life of Giacometti (We might've spelt that wrong)
About the new house teams; Chloe in our class won the house team election with the four elements ,Fire , Water ,Earth ,Air , at her side. Congratulations Chloe!
We have been learning about fractions this week and have finished our division work as I'm sure your children have told you! We have completed March On (our English work) by writing speeches that we performed to the class. It was nerve-wracking but we all did it!
Jasper Klompe has recently taken part in a beach clean with the National Trust. As this is something we all feel strongly about, Jasper has offered to share the name of the website with us all: www.mcsuk.org. Happy beach cleaning!
We'll be back again next week.
Evan and Cole
Here are some examples of marvelous Maya temples and facts.
Congratulations to all the children for a fantastic performance of The Highwayman on Wednesday. Mr Smith and Mr Stock were so impressed, they have asked year 5 to perform again on Tuesday in front of the school.
Please bring in your black clothes again for Tuesday and go over your lines this weekend.
Our trip to Dance East this afternoon was a success. The performance of The Borrowers was incredible. Amazing creative dance which inspired most of us to want to have a go. We are looking forward to our dance workshops next term already.
The children have been give a 'sweet' or 'savoury' request reminder for next Wednesday's afternoon parties. Please check to see which colour your child has chosen.
Happy weekend to you all.
Everyone has been working extremely hard on their spy stories this week. We have written up to chapter 4 and we should be finished by next week. We'll share some of the highlights with you when they're completed so watch this space.
We're hoping to get vocal in geography with a debate next week concerning the pros and cons of tourism in our seaside resorts.
Another week of multiplication next week so get practising those times tables as some of us are a bit slow at quick recall.
areIt was a pretty soggy end to our field trip to Felixstowe before half term but we had a super time exploring the geography of the area, both physical and human.
We saw how important the port and tourism are to the economy of the area and enjoyed a few chips in the rain.
The children were very keen for me to share with you the pictures of the amazing Anglo Saxon village they created at the end of last year. It was a fantastic way to spend the last few days of term and I think you'll agree that their hard work really paid off. We had so many compliments from pupils and staff across the school.
What a busy first few weeks! We're all back in the swing of things and the children are already enjoying swimming lessons at Crown Pools and lots of year 5 work!
If any parent or carer would like to come and see me about the new academic year, please pop in after school Tues - Friday.
Reminders for all is that swimming kit will need to be in school every Monday until the end of the term; i.e. right up to December.
PE lessons will take place on Tuesday but keep your child's kit in school all week in case of one off lessons or visitors etc. The PE kits are kept in class even though the children change in the Year 4 changing rooms so please ensure that all items of clothing are named.
Clarinet classes for those who continued from last year are every Thursday.
That's all for now,
Mrs Harries and Mrs Shinkins
We had a super trip to West Stow the other week and I wanted to share some of the photos with you. Enjoy the slideshow!
