Friday 23rd October
Welcome to Year 5F’s blog for this week.
This week has been another busy and exciting time. It has been The Great Westfield Bake Off so it has been a hive of industry as we baked and decorated our class entry. Take a look at some pictures from this week’s cake making…
A big well done to Year 6F who won the class certificate for best cake made in school. Their World War II inspired cake was a very worthy winner. Also, congratulations to our very own Jazmin, who won the certificate from Year 5F for best cake from home. She made a double decker chocolate orange cake at home with her mum. Well done to both of them.
Maths - This week we have been solving word problems. We have used both subtraction and addition to find our answers. Some of us have completed one step problems whereas others have moved on to problems with two steps.
Can you play this game and decide which operation you need to solve the problem...+ or -?
English – We have been looking at the features of non-chronological reports this week. These are factual reports that do not need to be written in time order. They will feature a main title, sub-headings, technical language and may include diagrams and photographs. We have written our very own non-chronological reports all about Woodlands and Wetlands.
Topic – The children have completed a review of their Woodlands and Wetlands topic. They have added all that they have learned over the past half term as well as what they have enjoyed most
Science – The children have continued looking at life cycles. They have investigated the life cycles of different birds and the life-cycle of a mammal – the bat. Then they followed this up by playing a game about facts and found out some amazing facts. Did you know that the average adult bat weighs between 5 and 6g? That’s the same weight as a £1 coin!
Our Certificate Winner this week is Daniel. It's his last day at Westfield, all of Year 5 wish him the best of luck at Sacred Heart. We will miss him!
Take care Daniel and please pop back in to let us know how you're getting on.
All that remains to say is have a fantastic half term break, enjoy Halloween, and we will see you back in school on Monday 2nd November.
