Year 5 Poplar Mrs Machin
For our first PURPLE time reward he made chocolate chip cookies and decorated biscuits with icing and Hallowe'en decorations. Our next PURPLE time reward is a film and popcorn. We have lots of other experiences yet to come.
Each week we celebrate our 'Star of the Week' which is announced in assembly. Our teacher looks closely at our behaviour, work and attitude to decide who encompasses the quality that week. Postcards are sent home and our photo and name is displayed in the classroom for everyone who visits to see. I wonder who it will be next?
Having a good grasp of multiplication and the related division facts is very important. Every day we deepen our understanding of our times tables by doing different activities and through learning them at home. We are all aiming to achieve a 'Gold' level of understanding and recall by February half-term. Can we do it? Yes we can!
Detailed below is the links to the planning that is administered and taught in Year 5 Poplar class.
Proud of their work
Here are some of the best pieces of work from the children and detail about what they have been learning in this academic block.
In Year 5 we are currently learning about World War Two. During the term, this theme has influenced all areas of the curriculum. For example:
- We have written letters and diaries as an evacuee
- We have created silhouette landscapes of Coventry Cathedral the night it was destroyed in a bombing raid upon the city
- We have created a model of a garden complete with an Anderson shelter and a Dig For Victory vegetable patch
- We have read 'Blitz'by Robert Westall, 'Rose Blanche' by Roberto Innocenti and are currently reading 'Goodnight Mister Tom' by Michelle Magorian
- We have written a fictional biography based upon the experiences of Jospeh Robertson who was an American soldier fighting in the Battle of the Bulge
|This group were empowered from their prior learning about Anderson shelters therefore they were able to plan, design and make a wartime garden. Each group's work was unique and Mrs Machin was very impressed with the levels of support that the class were giving each other.|
Hey guys, I'm back with more school news about Year 5. Recently we had Internet Safty day or ES for short anyway on ES day Year 5 had Help For Heores and Hero Bear come in and teach us about the life of a ingured person it was hard to write with the opposite hand.In Litracy, we have had a new topic about the 500 word challenge (500 Word challenge is a comptition between most of the schools round this area is is a story challenge which by the title you can tell you use 500 words)Its made me very exitced about it.
I have been learning about Anglo-Saxons which were peaceful (But sometimes felt like the meanest) Setterlers who chose to live in Britan after the long history of the Romans who left to live at better places. First, we learnt that Saxons were traders people who have things other people wanted and give them it in return of something they want. On Monday we had went on a exciting,mermorible trip to Stafford Univirsity we had a arrange of lessons to go do. After getting off the bus, we went over to see two rabbits called Nugget and Nibbles.
This past week me and my class have been learning and are fasinated by a little 7 minute video called THE SAGA OF BIORN which is about a aging viking coming to his deathbed. So he set of on his last adventure to find a worthy warrior to fight so he goes to Valhala so first he finds a muscley,skinny and fast viking but when coming down the steep hill he loses his grip,trips over and gets stabbed by his flying sword.After many not very exciting battles Biorn sits at the edge of a deep,steep and cliffy cliff.
