YEAR FIVE (5) F BLOG

 

In Maths this week, we have been doing some revision for our end of year tests. We have been doing lots of exhausting methods such as - bus stop - standard method for multiplying and times tables.(74 x 32 = 2368) But we got through it!

 

  For literacy on Thursday, we did a recount on sports day! We had to use our memories, and how we felt. We started a booklet called 'Eureka' it was all /about inventors and there inventions -Mr Price was so inspired he invented a gaming chair for when we play Gladiator School.

 

Science on Monday, was brilliant because we learnt about the life cycle of a growing plant and how it works. We wrote down the different stages of a growing plant such as (germination, pollination and seed dispersal.) We drew a diagram to show this.

 

This week has been so special for the choir, they entered a competition (Max Factor!) They got through to the semi finals before you could even say `Choir are great!!' On Friday they got some fabulous news, they got through to the 'FINALS'! 

Our certificate went to the choir children for all their hard work.  It was collected by our very own Joseph H

 

See you next week, this was Brody and Demi Lee reporting for Y5F          

Friday 9th May 2014

 

Hello and welcome to Year 5F's blog, we hope you enjoy

 it. This week we have been looking at flower parts.

The stem on a flower is there to help the flower to drink: the stem sucks all of the nutrition  out of the ground .

 

In Year 5F Molly Harrison entered the Max Factor, she sang `I'm on top of the world' by Imagine Dragons .

The Westfield choir entered as well as Molly . Bet they were AWSOME !!!!!!!!

 

In CFL we have been learning about the River Douglas and the River Severn.  We also watched a clip about the River Severn and how it starts of as a boggy pool then to a water fall , then to an little stream, then to the River Severn its self and it ends its journey in the sea.

 

 

    Today Alex Chegwin ,won a certificate in the assembly, he really deserved it because of his wonderful writing in English.

 

Hope you enjoy looking at some of our work, see you next week -bye from Molly and Alex

 

Flower Parts and River Journey Work

Friday 2nd May 14 

 

What a fabulous week we've had!  This week our class blog is brought to you by Emma L and Lewis G.

 

 

On Monday we learned about a nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet, Did you know

why  little Miss Muffet was terrified of spiders? Why? because her dad fed her spiders

wrapped in butter when she was ill.

 

In CFL we've learned were  we use water, We use water to drink, and for are spare time -for recreation. We also drew  a water cycle poster and then coloured it in with bright colours. -the water cycle involves evaporation, condensation and precipitation.

 

On Wednesday we did French everybody enjoyed it! We sang songs for a French celebration the song is about some elephants balancing  on a spiders web!  We also used some of our own lyrics in a French song.  We're hoping that this will be videoed so we can share it with you.

You also wouldn't believe what Brody did... She went out and represented our school at Progress House  (that's where the Education Offices are for the whole of Wigan -she really `did us proud').

 

On Friday we're all really happy because we have three days off… YES! In Big Writing we wrote a letter pretending to write to a man and told him why he shouldn't be afraid of spiders and we all did it! In the afternoon we're doing PE!

 

Our certificate for the week went to Megan for fantastic writing all week!

 

 

See you soon! Have a lovely weekend !!!

 

Friday 25th April 14 

Well what a 3 `SHMAZING 'days!! Although, we all really miss our wonderful `lie-ins'!

 
Maths 
We started the week with some maths all to do with angles. We learned how to measure different types of angles like- Acute, Right angles, Obtuse, Reflex and Straight Line (which is the easiest). We took our school cameras into the A.L.P.S and photographed natural shapes, we also tried to figure out the different angles.  Mr P put these pictures together on a sheet, and then we used protractors to calculate the angles we had found. 
 
Take a look at some of our pictures... How many angles can you spot?

 

 

On Thursday some visitors from another school came to look at how we used protractors. We changed our maths lesson a little, we had different groups with different challenges on each table.   Our maths lessons are going to be a little more like this for the rest of the year.  Mr Price was very pleased with us, because we made the visitors go WOW!   
 

Literacy
In literacy we have started doing poems all to do with rain and how it rhymes for example- AAAA, BBBB, CCCC, or a limerick that rhymes like this AABBA. On Thursday the poem made us very, very, very
B-O-R-E-D (it's okay, it was meant to have this effect). Both poems fitted in really well with our CFL topic which is.... 

        Water, Water, Everywhere.
 
CFL 
We haven't done very much in our CFL as we have started a BRAND new topic- Water, Water Everywhere. We will soon be going on a trip (So mums and dads get ready to empty your pockets...it's okay really, this one is in walking distance and so there is no cost for this one!) 
 
This week's certificate winner was Jack F...For his sense of humour -well done Jack

Friday 4th April 2014

This week has been extra busy with our Easter Production, the Easter Egg Competition and trying to complete our 3D gardens.  This week we have decided that pictures would be the best way to show you our week...

Couple of other things...
Our certificate this week went to the whole class for an outstanding Easter performance -what stars!

Jack F won the Easter egg competition for his Egg-lympics.

We'd like to wish our class mate Demmi Leigh good luck in her new school.  She leaves Westfield today and will start St Cuthbert's after Easter.  Good Luck Demmi -we'll miss you!
Friday 28th March 2014

Hello again, today were going to tell you what we have been doing this week!
 
In Maths, we have been multiplying by H T U x U. Furthermore, we have been using counting sticks to do our times tables and fractions. On Monday we saw a Maths Assembly to learn about shapes and degrees.  We found out that the angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees, which helps us calculate missing numbers. Lastly, we have been doing word problems and our 9 times tables.
 
Literacy has been wonderful lessons. We learned about The Battle of the Beaches ( it was all about Turtles), it told us about the tourists that try and destroy the turtle nests. The tourists didn't care much about turtles. Also it told us that the Loggerhead was endangered just like a Leatherback and a Pacific Ridley. In addition, we made posters that read "Save The Turtles" and pictures with more information. Take a look at these examples...

 

 

Imagine a garden full of mystery, filled with all the things you love, a place which is out of this world: we have being making 3D gardens that will look so astonishing when they're finished. Take a look at Katelin's ( that had a little help from Mrs Dwyer). She made tables and chairs, decking, a washing line and stepping stones.

 

 

 

Finally we have been Practising/Rehearsing for our Easter assembly. This was our favourite thing of all. Our assembly will be on  Thursday 3rd April 9am -we hope you can make it.
 
Our certificate winner was Joseph P -for getting into role for his character in the play.

 


Friday 21st March 2014

 Hi, this week our blog is brought to you by Katelin and Rose…
Well what a week we have had!
 
CFL
This week we have started to make our own model gardens out of wood. We have been very careful using the saws. We have learnt how to use jinx corners. We also used a bench hook to help keep the wood in place when we saw. When the garden models are finished, they will look fabulous –we will post some pictures of our finished products. Before we started to do our garden models, we did some work on a game called PLANTS vs ZOMBIES. We had a sheet of paper each and designed our own plants. Imagine being in a place surrounded by zombies, a planet where you could never escape, a place where you could get trapped forever: this is where the Plants and Zombies find themselves! We made up names such as Aggressive Orange, Choking Chilli, Dazzling Daffodil, Lady Apple and Shooting Strawberry.
 
ENGLISH
Well we have been busy in English this week. We have been learning our Super Sentences. This week we are finishing of our Noun Who Which Where. As an example - The girl, who wears a pink bow in her hair, works hard in Year 5 F.
We have been learning about De:De sentence. Here is an example - I find my target hard to reach:  I am aiming for a Level 5.  Also, we have been working on 10 Minute Challenges in Literacy. Here is Katelin's 10 Minute Challenge –
 

My heart was beating so fast, I could hear it in my ears. I could see the race starter raise his pistol. " 5,4,3,2,1 ... Go." He said loudly. After a couple of minutes, I was flying through the air on my BMX like a circus act in the top tent. This was my last chance, I was in the top 5, this needed to be done! Do you think I could do this ?
 
NUMERACY
In Numeracy we have been learning about something called Probability. We set this out in a graph like this
Impossible Unlikely Likely Certain
Own all the money in the world. A billionaire Learn to drive  
Learn to drive blindfolded      
You will learn to fly      
 
 

We have also been learning about line graphs. You can learn your timetables by using a line graph. This will help you get your multiplication bands. You should try it.
 
SCIENCE
We have been looking at silly advertisments. To make them better we designed our own.
 
 
THE WINNER OF THIS WEEK WAS KATIE SHUKER!! She got the certificate for being a cherub!
 


Friday 7th March 2014
 
Another exciting week here in Year Five.
On Wednesday, we had French in the morning with Mrs Wilson! WOW, what a super lesson.  We have begun to write our own story for Year Two but in French!  Our stories are all about how we asked the zoo for an animal, but how they were the wrong animals.  You'd be amazed how well we could do this…it was so amazing we -well, we amazed ourselves!
 
On Wednesday afternoon, we had a whole afternoon of football! Don't worry though, we did a PE lesson outside on the MUGA with a coach, then a Literacy lesson in class related to football.  We were -once again -really impressive.  We worked really well in our teams, and, we had loads of fun.
 
Oh, oh, oh -on Tuesday we won the trophy for our attendance - we had the highest attendance of all the classes -WOW!
 
Thursday was World Book Day.  Lots of us came in dressed as characters from books.  We also had some time in Wigan's Life Education caravan.  Kerry, who worked with us, taught us all about the body and how to keep healthy. Take a look at our pictures. 

 

 

We held our own Star Story Teller heats in class -and although, all the children who read were brilliant, Brody was voted by us to be the best.  Mr Moore made a video of her -she read The Gruffalo's Child -she read it beautifully clear with masses of expression.

Thank you to all our parents for helping us to dress up for the day.
 
On Friday, in Big Writing, we wrote an interview with a boy called Oran who was visiting Earth from another planet.  Our teachers were really impressed!
Our certificate winner this week was Jack F, for being Y5F's Mr Duracell -continued effort since September -he just keeps going!
You will receive a letter today with regards to Parents' Evening.
See you next week

WELCOME TO YEAR FIVE F BLOG !!!!!!!
This week by Demmi-Leigh and Joseph H

 
In CFL we have been doing `What does your garden look like?' We designed our own  gardens, we will be making a 3D model of a garden.
 In literacy we have been doing complex sentences like this... Despite the old, crumbling building, the school was very popular.
In maths in have been learning all about ratio and proportion. (1:2) is an example of 1 to every 2, proportion would be 1 in every 3 or 1/3. In Science we have been learning about Changing State. We have been looking at a cycle that shows how a solid changes to a liquid and how a liquid changes to a gas. When  a liquid  changes into a solid the process is known as `solidifying'.
 

Next week is World Book Day and on Thursday we will be able to dress up as our favourite book character (we can't wait to see what Mr Price comes has -his favourite book is `Spot the Dog')
 
This weeks certificate winner is  Shaun Lowe !!!

See you next week!!!! Bye for now...

 
 
 
 
 
Today we are going to talk about what we have been doing over the past few days. This week we have been learning all about Ancient Greece we have been building are own Greece city. In CFL, we learned about the great fighting of Thermopylae ( so scary )we have also  been learning about the Earth, Sun and Moon, we learned about  all the eight moons, we are going to tell all the eight phases of the moon new moon , crescent moon , 1st quarter , waxing moon, full moon, waning moon , last quarter and last but not leased the old moon. During RE, we have made our very own church  windows

Friday 7th February  2014

Welcome to Year 5F blog
 
This week in maths we have been looking at shapes and symmetry. We cut out shapes and stuck them in our books and found their lines of symmetry. With our partner we made a pattern and challenged them to reflect them using a mirror line across 4 quadrants.
 
In literacy we all made our own advertisement for an Olympics hotel using all the sentences we have leaned recently, such as `Imagine 3' . This is an example- Imagine a place where your Athletes can stay, that's safe and secure, that has spectacular facilities: book your stay in the Olympic Hotel today. This is just a few of examples of our work-

 

 

We also used the computers to complete a poster to promote a Winter Olymipc sport...  

 

 

In CFL we have been learning about how the Olympics started, we found out that the first Olympic Game were held in Olympia 2,700 years ago...WOW! The Spartans and the Athenians were very competitive with each other. We also know some of the sports they did in the ancient times such as discus, chariot racing, javelin, running, boxing, long jump and wrestling.  
 
Our certificate winner this week was Katelin for being an `all round good `Gal''.
See you next time...Demi and Lewis (with the help of Molly)  
     

Friday 31st January 2014
 

Where has January gone?  Christmas is now a distant memory, it will soon be Valentine's Day!

Well what have we been up to this week? 
In Maths we spent some time doubling and halving -down into decimal numbers too! On Wednesday, we had a theatre group in performing a maths show -which was great! On Thursday, we looked at the Rules of Divisibility -which sounds really grand doesn't it?
Here are a couple that we found.  If a number is divisible by 2, the last digit (unit digit) must be an even number.  So 7798 is divisible by 2 as the unit digit (8) is even. 
To check if a number is divisible by 3, you add all the digits together and divide by 3, if you get a whole number then the original number is divisible by 3.  So, 36912 -3+6+9+1+2 = 21. 21 divided by 3 =7, therefore, 36912 ios divisible by 3.

In Literacy we have be looking at how adjectives, adjectival clauses and phrases are used in persuasive writing.  Then we wrote our own persuasive texts that had some examples of these.  Today's Big Writing was a holiday space cruise around the world.  Our teachers were soooooo impressed with our writing.  We really are stars.

Our certificate winner this week was Chelsea, for lightning fast mental maths skills -even quicker than Mr P.

Don't forget to read about our Great Bike Shed Bake Off on the letter that went home tonight.
See you next week!



Friday 17th January 2014
 

Welcome back to the Y5F blog.  We've had such a busy week, you wouldn't believe!

In Literacy this week we have been looking at poetry.  On Monday, we looked at a narrative poem called `The Visitor'.  This poem tells the story of a man who takes a ring from the finger of a skeleton in a graveyard.  He gives the ring to his wife (without telling her where he found it).  Later that night, the skeleton visits them to take back his ring! Spooky eh?

Our favourite poem of the week was ` The Poem Imagines it is a Horror Film' by Pie Corbett , you can read the poem by clickinghere.  This poem uses idioms (a common phrase that doesn't have a literal meaning).  We have all said things like `I was over the moon' or, `You're driving me up the wall'.  Pie Corbett then follows the saying with a sentence as if they it were real.  We got chance to write some of our own...things like...

It's raining cats and dogs
(watch you don't step in that poodle)

Whatever you do, don't spill the beans,
(you'll make a right mess on the floor)


We have also written about our favourite sweets and drinks.  MMmmm 

In Maths we have been using brackets to help us with word problems.  When faced with brackets, the bit in the bracket must be worked out first.  Here's an example-
24 - (3 x 6)=
24 - 18 = 6
We were really good at these!

In CfL, we started to find out about Ancient Greece. We found out it was not one whole country but lots of city states that were constantly falling out with each other.  We've not been told -but we have a suspicion that this may soon turn out to be a pretty cool topic.  (May have something to do with Mr P mentioning `Temple Run' every day...he thinks we don't notice when he whispers it to the other teachers!)

And finally, we wanted to share this special report from our very own Chloe.  Over to you Chloe -

 
On boxing day I went to Goodison Park - I could not wait to be Toffee Girl! (A Toffee Girl is someone who walks around the football pitch throwing toffees to the football fans.)  When we got there, we were seated in a small but cosy, warm room.  We sat down had a sandwich and a drink.  I had the opportunity to meet all the football players and the manager of Everton Roberto Martinez.  I took the top I had just bought to get signed and framed.  First of all I met Roberto, he was kind and smartly dressed.  After we had said hello, we all got chance to have a photo with him.  We went into the players dressing room and met most of the players.  A lot of the players asked us did we had a good Christmas and we all replied with "yes".  We got a lot of autographs and photos.  We were lead back into the small room and I put the dress on over my clothes and got my basket filled with toffees (it was heavy even for my dad!)  

 

 

Finally, it was time to go out -I could now give my toffees out.  I got a photo of me and started to give out toffees. I went all the way round the pitch and reached my family to find out my brother and cousins were doing the flags I was so happy for them.  I had a kick of the ball and stood by the tunnel.  `Z Cars' theme tune came on and the crowd cheered the noise was astonishing!  We got one last photo and sadly my day came to a end.

Friday 10th January 2014
 

Welcome back, and ... Happy New Year!  We've have certainly had a happy start to 2014 here in Year 5F.  We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and had a nice relaxed break.  Mr Price and Mrs Dwyer told us earlier in the week just how much they had missed us...MMmmm -what do you think?

Anyway, a new year means new topics -hooray!!! Our Science topic for this half term is Earth, Sun and Moon.  We are really, reallyexcited by this -infact so excited, that we used repetition there to emphasise it!  We all ready know the planets in our Solar System and the order that they come in from the sun.  Here's a little sentence to help us...
My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Naming Planets...
(and we also know that Pluto is no longer classed as a planet..Aw, poor Pluto...  

 

We have in CfL started our new topic -Why do we have the Olympics?  We are really looking forward to find out why -we'll keep you posted on this one.

We really enjoyed English and Big Writing this week.  We found out all about figurative language such as similes, metaphors and personification through a poem called The Frozen Man by Kit Wright.  Then on Friday in Big Writing we described a beach in winter and summer. We tried to include figurative language in our writing -some of it was superb!!!!

This week's certificate winner -and also the winner of the Upper Key Stage Two Pupil of The Week -was Alex.  He is a wonderful friend that shows others the way.  

 

Hooray for Alex

 

Thanks for popping in, we'll see you again next week!



Friday 20th December 
WELCOME! This week has been the best week in year 5f. We have lots to tell you this week. Keep reading to find out what we have been up to.
 
In Maths this week we have been training a dragon... sort of (no, we don't mean Mr Price) this is the story of how we got our dragon. Mr price brought us all together. Did we have a clue what it was for?  NO! But don't worry, it wasn't something bad because Mr price had some coordinates on the  white board and they were dragon eggs. We all came up and chose an coordinate and our dragon came up, mine was a Scauldron Dragon from the Tidal class. There were two of each dragon. For the past three days we have been testing it by measuring lengths, using coordinates and four operations of number. The highest score was 30 and I got 30 on all of them.
 
In Literacy we have made our own Christmas Kenning poem. A kenning poem is a poem that describes something without saying what it is. This is my kenning poem guess what it is... a Christmas Tree? The Grinch?  Or a present?
A hairy beast
A mountain liver
A green haired menace
A Christmas ruiner
A dog keeper
A toffee eater
A horrid beast
Beetles between his teeth
A present thief
A good friend at the end
What is it?
 
We have continued with our cushions and finished them and here are some of our cushions.
 
 
 
 
On Tuesday we all went Abraham Guest high school to watch there production Movie Madness. Well done that school!  We loved it!
 
Yesterday we had our party we played musical  dragon corners, picking up a box with your teeth ONLY! When we came back we had some free time to eat our party food and then we played for dragon posters we used with our game. The game was put the nose on the Rudolph. Some people thought it was on its bum.... ho! ho! ho!...I mean, ha, ha, ha!
 
Today we are doing our Christmas cards the options are a robin, a Christmas tree, A Christmas pudding, a present and jingle bells.
 
Tomorrow Mr Price will be bringing his Xbox and Wii. We are so exited for tomorrow!
 
Thanks for reading our blog
 
BYE-BYE
From the teachers and children of Y5F -we hope you have a really Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yo dudes, what's happenin'? Come and read our brilliant blog!!!!
 
 

This week in Numeracy we have been learning about prime factor's and factors.
 
 

In Literacy we have been pretending to be Bork the Very Very Unfortunate (a character from How to Train Your Dragon) and we have been  writing in his diary.  At the end of the week if we had written well, we would be promoted to Bork the Bold!!!
Obviously, our writing was so good, we were all promoted!

 
We have also been trying to finish of our musical cushions!!!! We can't wait until we see all of our cushions finished!!!
 

As you all know, we have brought a new thing activity into school it is called Super Sentences. We have been working on trying to get some in our writing.  We have mainly been working on De:De sentences.
 
Our certificate winner this week was Emma L for her confidence in Maths.
 
Reported from Jheen + J Joseph!!

             
Friday 6th December

Hi, this is Chloe and Cassidy bringing you the
Latest news this week,
                                    This Week in Literacy  we have been learning about DRAGONS, again, but this time we were trying to use Subordinating Conjunctions, we had lots of fun.  Mr Price has told us all of the subordinating conjunctions like ‘despite’, ’although, ’because’, ‘though’, ‘as’. Some of these are hard to use.  In our class, we are having a `despite' competition with Mr P,  we are winning 17-7!  Whoever uses the word despite correctly in a sentence gets a point. Despite Mr P being good at the blog, we're better...ha, ha -antoher point for us!
 
Now, I bet you all want to hear about Big writing...we have all been turned into elves … ha ha, ha only joking! We were pretending  to be elves!  Well, we had a recoded message of Santa saying `you elves have got a chance to be my little helper.'  I was Pixie and Cassie was Dumtpy.  The letter had to be persuasive.  We thought it was fun!
 

 
This weeks Maths was all about fractions.  We learned , ‘ To find a 1/2 you divide by 2, to find a 1/3 you divide by 3, to find a 1/4 you divide by 4, to find a 1/10 you divide by 10. 
 
Our certificate winner this week was Olivia for using Super Sentences independently
 
See you next week..  

This is Toothless...Not Jheen!     

 

Friday 29 November
 
Hello and welcome back to Year 5F's wonder-filled blog!
 
We have been learning about dragons out The  Book of Dragons, I will tell you some of their names. Night Fury, Skrill, Boneknapper, Snaptrapper. These are some of the dragon from `How to Train You Dragon' but there are lots more than these few.
 
our cfl topic is called does a stitch in time save nine? We are making musical cushions And we need to get them done...for christmas!
 
 
In maths we have been multiplying tens and units by units. Then we moved onto hundreds tens and units by units -to begin with this was really tricky (but not for jheen) but then with a little practise then we all became experts (just like jheen).
 
In science we have been doing about sound waves. on Thursday we used a sound monitor to record how many decibels the buzzer let out. Then we wrapped the buzzer in different materials,  Cotton was <50db,Bubble wrap was 50db,glass was 50db and tin foil was 57db. (Jheen was amazed!)
 
In big writing we have been picking our own dragons to write about (everyone wanted to write about jheen -our class pet dragon). today was our assessment in witting that means we can have no help with our witting -our teachers (and jheen) were really impressed with our work...and you know how difficult it is to impress a dragon (especially jheen).
 
Joseph h won the trophy today -for a super week in school.
 
             That's all folks. (and jheen)

Friday 15th November 2013
 

Another week -why do they go so quickly?

In Literacy we finished The Laidley Worm -we couldnt wait to read how it ended -but Mr P made us wait and wait until Tuesday.  What a super story!  We loved it so much that Mr Price found another version that was slightly different and we compared and contrasted the two.  We have started to write our own version which we hope to make into Powerpoint stories to upload to our website...WATCH THIS SPACE.

In Maths, we have looked at perimeter (the outside measurement of a shape), along with time.  We made a huge `human clock' in class that helped us with some of the trickier times.  Take a look -

Today -Friday, was Children in Need.  We all came in our pajamas or onesies.  In Big Writing we wrote an appeal as one of our favourite pop stars or sport stars.  Then, we looked at someone elses and decided whether it was persuasive enough for us to donate (not real money of course).

Our class certificate this week went to Megan, for simply being Megan -hard working and a delight to be with. Simples!

Bye for now...Y5F

 

Friday 8th November2013

 

Well this week has flown by... here are our highlights -

"I enjoyed maths this morning with Mrs Dwyer," Emma J

Friday MMOOREsea monster story called The Asrai! Why don't you try to find it and read it?
 
Coming to our next subject... Science!!!
It has been tiring and difficult doing all those tests we have been through although some have been fun to be honest. We have reached the end of our topic so mr Price needed to find out how much we have lernt and remembered.
 
Did you know that you CAN use because at the beginning of a sentences? A lot of famous authors use it, and so have we! Here is an example of a because sentence : Because the snow drifted softly on top of the sun set, the children made a family snow man.
 
Today Mrs Roberts taught us how to do our 7 times tables. Its a brilliant way to learn your 7's.
 
Last week we did a ww2 (world war 2) propaganda poster on a piece of paper and now we are doing a outstanding one on the computer. Wait and maybe you will find out what they will look like!
 
Literacy was best of all ;) Semicolons are really easy once you know how to use them. It was difficult when we only just started using them, some of us put them in the wrong place sometimes.
 
For an amazing CFL (creative fun learning) we made a gas mask . They still need more work just yet.
 
Last but not least, the most wonderful Harvest Assembly we have ever seen, it was amazing! It blew all of our socks off. Thank you !!!! Staring the pink lady apples and The turnips
 
Thanks for reading our blog TTFN

Friday 11th October 

 

Well here we are again... I bet you're wondering what we've been upto??? Well... Ermmmm (Mrs Dwyer said -it's a good job Mr Price remembers...)
This week in Maths we've been looking at column addition of decimals.   And you know what?  We smashed it!  This showed in our Self Paced tests on Friday where we moved our score from 30% to over 60%! How good are we?

In English we've been looking Greek Myths.  We have looked at the quest that Jason went on in search of the Golden Fleece, and the stroy of Pandora's Box.  On Friday, we wrote our own battle between a hero/heroine and mythical creature.

Our Science all week has included lots of experiments involving gases.  Our favourite was one where we placed a balloon over 1 of 4 fizzy water bottles.  One had been in the freezer, one in the fridge, one at room temperature and one in warm water.  We were surprised to discover that the warm fizzy water fizzed up the most...(we knew this because the balloon inflaed most).

On Thursday morning we went into a Planetarium that Year 6 had in for their topic.  WOW!  We really we enjoyed our time in there and learned lots about space.

Our certificate winner this week was Emma J for being a real trooper all week.

See you next week...bye for now -Year 5F


Friday 20th September

We have had a super week...but the icing on the cake was our trip out today to Tatton Park, where we imagined we were evacuated during WWII.  Thanks to all our parents who helped by dressing us up for the day.  Here are some picutres of our day out, we'll post more next week -maybe as a podcast.  Enjoy -

Friday 13th September
Hello again... or as Mr Price likes to say to the children each Monday morning as they come into class...`Hello again.'
Okay, this week the plot thickens...Do you remember George?  You know, George...George from last week -we mentioned George, you know -he was Plane Crazy?  "Ah yes", we hear you...Well, this week in English, we compare George's character to that ofa girl called Charlie from a book called `The Lottie Project'.  Charlie was a very different character to George -in fact, she could be positively horrid.  Now, here's the clever bit -the writer (Jacqueline Wilson) didn't actually tell us that she was horrid, we had to figure this out from the clues that she had left in the text for us.  For example, Charlie said things like `I don't want to sound disgustingly boastful'...we we decided sounded...erm -disgustingly boastful!

In Maths, we have looked at rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000.  We also honed in on our mental strategies for addition -looking at ways to add 2 digit and 3 digit numbers.  
In Big Writing today we watched a clip from the Dambuster movie (you remember the one that George watched...what do you mean -`Who's George?')  You can watch the clip by clicking here.
We imagined that we were the crew of one of these Lancaster Bombers attacking the dam.  Our wriitng was excellent!!!
  On Friday afternoon we did Science -we tried to prove the existence of air.  Take a look at these pictures -

 

 

Our certificate winners this week were
Lewis G -for impressing his teachers so far in Year 5F
and
Chelsea -for a smile like sunshine that will help us through the winter

See you next week

Friday 6th September

 

Well, hello and welcome to a new term and a new academic year in Year Five F.  As you can imagine, it’s all change here!  Well, almost all.  Mr Price is still here, but apart from that it’s…

 

 

 

We have Mrs Dwyer (formerly Mrs Bretherton) as `Stage Manager’, (she should keep Mr P in line) and Mr Howard as `Sound and Lights Man' (who should be able to make Mr P look good...or maybe not), and in the starring role…well, we’ve a whole new class of children –WOW!

 

Each week we’ll post all the comings and goings of Y5F here…sort of like you favourite soap from the telly.  We’ll tell you all about the things that we’ve been up to and remind you of any upcoming events.

 

 

 

This week in English we’ve been looking at a story called `Plane Crazy’ about two boys (George and Birdy) who are so crazy about planes that they accidently flood George’s Great Aunt Phyl’s kitchen.  They're playing `Dam Busters’!  You know the one…click here

 

In Maths, we have been reading really long numbers whilst looking at Place Value.  We managed to read all the way to a 15 digit number…something like this…

 

345,632,742,739,249

 

Amazing eh?

 

You will have received our Tatton Park letter for our trip on the 20th September.  It would be great if the children could dress up as evacuees for this day out, so we have sent some ideas on what children may have wore.

 

This week the children made it really difficult for the teachers to choose the certificate winners.  Eventually they decided that the winners should be –

 

 

Molly Harrison –for her contributions to lessons

and

Lewis Jones for a great start to Year Five

 

It was difficult –any one of the children could have received the award –they have all been STARS!

 

See you next week –cue theme tune
