Friday 23rd November


Welcome to this week’s blog from Year 5F. It has been another busy, busy week!


English – This week, we have returned to our text called BLING about a young boy called Billy. The children have imagined that they are Billy and must face his dilemma. Will he continue turning things into gold with his magic cushion, making him a winner and popular in school? Or will he change his beloved pet cat Goji (which has curled up on the cushion and is now solid gold) back and lose the cushion, turning him back into a loser at school? The children have planned, drafted and written a diary entry pretending to be Billy on the day that all these events unravel.


Maths – The children have continued with multiplication using either the grid method or a formal column method. They have been multiplying 2-digit, 3-digit and 4-digit numbers by a 2-digit number. This website allows you to practise long multiplication further…

Science – The children have been learning about the lifecycles of birds. They have drawn a diagram of the life cycle with pictures and explanations of each stage. Take a look at this website which will explain more…

Topic – The children have continued learning about Viking long ships and all the different parts and their function. They completed a comprehension task about long ships. Finally, they completed their art using oil pastels of a Viking long ship at sea. Here is a slideshow of the children’s Viking artwork…

Here is our certificate winner this week. He won for having a simply stunning week! He has mastered long multiplication, produced a beautiful piece of Viking art AND makes his teachers smile every day as he reads religiously at home!! He was also chosen as the Upper Phase Pupil of the Week and gets to take the trophy home. Congratulations and well done from all the children and teachers in Year 5F. smileysmileysmiley

All that remains to say is have a great weekend. We will see you again on Monday.
