Welcome to 5M
Here is some useful information about your new class.
Children should bring their reading book and record every day. (reading records should be arriving soon)
Children should also bring a labelled water bottle and may bring a healthy snack for playtime.
PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays and children must bring their PE kits on these days. Kit is a blue tshirt and plain black or blue shorts. When the weather is colder, children will need a fleece and tracksuit bottoms or leggings as we will be going out even if very cold.
Children should read each day. In year 5 we encourage children to write their book into reading records. However we would like adults at home to sign and write comments to show they have read. On Mondays, spelling and rapid recall will be sent home to practise ready for tests on Fridays.
Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt. We have already shared what we know and are looking forward to learning much more. Our class assembly this term is on Friday 22nd October.
Over this past half term we have had the opportunity to engage in lots of learning in year 5. Below are some of the activities.
HERE WE ARE USING OUR BODIES IN P.E. TO CREATE SHAPES, BRIDGES AND BUILD ROUTINES.
IN SCIENCE WE WERE EXPLORING REVERSIBLE AND IRREVERSIBLE CHANGES, WE TESTED VITIMAN C TABLETS WITH COLD, WARM AND HOT WATER TO SEE, WHICH REACTED AND PRODUCED MORE CARBON DIOXICE.
IN TOPIC AS PART OF OUR EGYPTIAN LEARNING WE EMBARKED ON MAKING OUT OWN CANOPIC JARS.
AGAIN IN SCIENCE WE WERE TESTING FOR THE PRESENCE OF CARBON DIOXICE AND CHANGES THAT COULD NOT BE REVERSED.
IN P.E. WE WEREING WORKING TOGETHER IN TEAMS TO PRACTISE SKILLS, THEN CREATE A GAME OF OUR WON.
IN ENGLISH WE WERE RE-ARRANGING A NON-CHRON REPORT WITH ALL THE INFORMATION UNDER THE CORRECT HEADING.
HERE AGAIN IN SCIENCE WE USED MENTOS AND FIZZY DRINK TO SHOW HOW LIQUIDS CAN CHANGE.
WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SHARE SOME OF THE LEARNING WE HAVE CARRIED OUT, WHILE BACK AT SCHOOL AFTER THE HALF TERM
HERE WE ARE AGIN OUTSIDE FOR P.E. AND WORKING IN TEAMS TO PRACTISE BASKET BALL THROWING AND CATCH, ALONG WITH BOUNCING AND WALKING IN STEP.

Welcome back to the Spring term.
This term, we will be studying geography in the topic. Our Planet. In this unit we will investigate ho human beings activities in a n environment. We will be staring by studying the local area we live in South Ockendon and Thurrock, starting by making observations and collecting information when we go for a local walk.
In maths this term, we will first be learning about fractions and decimals. Learning to times tables by heart will be very important this term to understand our topic. TTRockstars online is a fun way to improve
