Thank you

admin on: Class 5

A big thank you to everyone who could attend the Microsoft Teams test lesson this afternoon. Your behaviour was amazing and I was so impressed with how well you responded to online learning. I am honestly so proud! If you struggled to get on, please come and see me tomorrow in school or get your adults to email me.

In other news, we observed two minutes silence today for Remembrance Day. Here is a photo of us at 11am this morning.

6.11.20 Update

admin on: Class 5

It has been lovely to welcome you all back this week; I have thoroughly enjoyed getting stuck into the new topics. A reminder that Class 5's curriculum letter is on the Class 5 page on the website. 

Homework

The homework this week is as follows:

1.) 2 Mathletics tasks on angles.  A big thank you to everybody who has been keeping up with the homework. If you are unable to get on at home, or you need more time to complete the homework, I would encourage you to come to homework club on a Wednesday lunchtime. The homework is really helpful to ensure you have understood the maths taught in school.

2.) The spellings are: fasten, glisten, castle, listen, soften, whistle, wrestle, thistle.

3.) I have uploaded a collaborative Teams document for you. It is a sheet which all of you write on and it appears as one document. I would like you to write on the document things you would like to find out about Greece (both ancient and modern). So it is just simple a line or two of writing with a question about what you would like to learn in the topic. I will then do my best to answer all your questions throughout the next 6 weeks of lessons on our Greece topic. Please be aware this is a learning document, so sensible questions only, please! 

To access this, please go to the Class Notebook section on Teams and look in the class pages sections. This is the first time I have used this, so please let me know if it works!

Next week

I am delighted to invite all children in the class to a Teams online meeting on Wednesday at 4pm. It will be a short 15 minutes lesson where I will be doing a quick, fun task with you. I am using this to test out our ability to deliver remote learning. Please ensure your microphone is muted when you join, but I may ask you to unmute it at different points. Bring a pen and paper! 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and stay safe!

Happy Half Term from Mr. K

admin on: Class 5

Happy half term! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know my new class and I feel we have really come on in the last 7 weeks. I hope the children have enjoyed our topic on space and I am so so sorry that I left our class book, Cosmic, on a cliffhanger, but you will find out what happens after half term!

Homework

1.) Mathletics: 4 tasks for the 2 weeks on equivalent fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers.

2.) Spellings are the same as last week. They are: Miserable, reliable, adorable, believable, enjoyable, understandable, comfortable, changeable.

I will also upload the list onto Spelling Shed.

3.) Over a half term, I often set some additional homework on our new topic. Please see the sheet attached.

Balloon Race

Here is some information on the FONS balloon race. Keep an eye out for our Class 5 balloon!

It was lovely to get to meet you all (albeit virtually!) at parents' evening this week. Thank you for your support. Have a lovely half term!

Week 6 in Class 5

admin on: Class 5

We are already 6 weeks into Year 5! The time has gone so fast! I have to say, it has been a lovely week in Class 5, with all members of the class working hard. I have particularly enjoyed reading their writing this week, which has revolved around a mysterious figure and a magical green portal. 

Homework

1.) This week, I have put two Mathletics tasks for the children. One is on long multiplication and the other is on short division. You will need a pen and paper to complete these. 

2.) I have uploaded a grammar quiz onto Microsoft Teams. Hopefully the children will 'wow' you with their amazing grammar knowledge!

3.) Here are the new spellings for this week. The first test will be on Thursday 22nd October and then the second test will be on the Friday back after half term.

Miserable

Reliable

Adorable

Believable

Enjoyable

Understandable

Comfortable

Changeable

Something to watch

I have discovered a documentary on Netflix called 'A Year in Space'. It follows the story of astronaut Scott Kelly, who spent nearly a full year on the ISS back in 2015. There are 12 episodes and each one is only short (usually around 15 minutes). It was absolutely fascinating to learn how the astronauts live on the ISS and I highly recommend it. The rating on Netflix is that it is suitable for 'all' audiences and after watching it, I would love to recommend the children watch it. As we have written a biography about Tim Peake, who was also on the ISS, it seems very relevant to our topic. The episodes that I think they would most be interested in are episodes 5, 7, 9 and 10.  

This isn't homework, but just something I thought the children might be interested in to help pass the time over the next few weeks when we may all have less leisure activities to do!

Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to speaking to you all at parents' evening next week.
