January 2023

We are continuing our concept of Respect this term and are now focussing on Respect for our Planet. 

This will include respect for natural processes and life cycles in Science; respect for the power of nature in Geography by learning about earthquakes and their impact on people and places; understand how we can have an impact on showing respect for the planet in PSHE; respect for creation in RE and representing our work in different ways in Computing.

Our PE days are still Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Please ensure your child has the correct labelled clothing in school on these days.

Please ensure your child has correct school uniform everyday showing respect for school expectations.  Replacement ties can be purchased from the school office if needed.

The children are still expected to read every night.  This is so important as this helps their reading, writing and understanding of the world.  Spellings will be set on a Monday to be tested the following Monday.

If you have any questions, please see me at the beginning of the school day or after school on a Monday or Tuesday,

Thank you,

Miss Rhodes

 

Welcome to Year 5

The concept we will be learning the curriculum through this year is ‘Respect’. Our aims are:

• To see our own worth and value ourselves as an individual

• To understand the impact we have on the community and world

 • To develop social skills

• To show empathy and understanding of others

This will include respect for natural processes in Science; respect for the planet in Geography; respect for the past and how we can learn from it in History; respect for the beliefs of others and ourselves in RE and PSHE; respect for the work of others in Art and Music and being respectful online in Computing.

Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has the correct labelled clothing in school on these days. On Fridays we have a specialist music teacher who will be teaching our class to play the ukulele.

The children are still expected to read every night. This is so important as this helps their reading, writing and understanding of the world. Spellings will be set on a Monday to be tested the following Monday.

I look forward to working with you and your children. If you have any questions, please see me at the beginning of the school day or after school on a Monday or Tuesday,

Thank you,

Miss Rhodes

Forces experiment

May 2023

We worked in groups to construct a ramp that would make the car travel as far as possible.  We identified the forces in action and how we could use them to support us, eg reducing fraction on the wheels.

Investigating air resistance

May 2023

We made parachutes to investigate our enquiry: 'How does surface area affect the time it takes a parachute to land?'

We identified the variables to ensure we had a fair test.  We found that the smaller the area of the parachute the faster it will fall as it has less air resistance.
