Year 5 Non Negotiables for Writing, Reading and Maths

Welcome Meeting

In English the children have worked hard to write descriptive dialogues.

PSCHE - we made board games to show good ways and bad ways to deal with bullying. If you land on a snake then you have done the wrong thing and have to moved down. If you land on a ladder you did the right thing and move up!

Our Diwali dance workshop was fantastic! The children picked up the dance so quickly and did a great job performing it.

Diwali cinquains and Rangoli multiplication.

Diwali hands with Henna designs

We had so much fun on Ancient Egypt day! We made cartouches, Egyptian necklaces and oil pastel scenes.

At Hudnall Park we did lots of fun art activities! We made sculptures, went on a colour hunt in the woods and practised mixing colours. It was lots of fun!

This week we had a growth mindset workshop. We had to use our growth mindset to draw a picture. We learnt that it’s ok to make mistakes, to never give up and always try our best.

In English we have written diary entries about building the pyramids in Ancient Egypt.

In Art we made papyrus paper and drew Egyptian tomb paintings onto them.

It was lovely weather on Tuesday so we took our English lesson outside! We performed pieces of drama pretending to be pharaohs in Ancient Egypt and people building the pyramids.

Wow what a fantastic start to Year 5. The children have worked really hard and it’s been great to get to know each other! Here are just some of the brilliant pieces of work we’ve completed this week.

Our book is set in the Victorian era so we studied a famous Victorian artist William Morris. We created wallpaper art inspired by his work. They are fantastic and the children are very proud of their work.

In Maths we went on a treasure hunt! We had to solve the word problems and then find the answers somewhere around the school.

On PowerPoint we created a balanced argument about one of the characters from Street Child. We confidently shared our arguments to the class.

Sports Week was so much fun. We had fantastic CHAMP skills and showed lots of Olympic and Paralympic values. Thank you to Jensen for taking some lovely pictures!
