Its the end of Autumn 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y5…………………….

Its the end of Autumn 2 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y5…………………….

Year 5 have had a fantastic half term, through exploring world trade in geography to writing the next chapter in our story Hugo Cabret! Well done.

Writing:

In Writing, we have been learning about conjunctions and descriptive language used to create atmosphere and tension in a narrative chapter text. We have also been writing our own interesting explanation texts about our chosen subject using background knowledge and research from our chrome books.

Geography:

From the palm trees of Jamaica to the UK, our new topic has been all about World Trade. First, we the countries and climate needed to grow bananas and where they come from. Next, we discussed how bananas are traded around the world and imported into the UK. We ended this unit by debating the pros and cons of buying Fair Trade products.

Art:

This half term, children explored all about Roman and Greek mosaics. First, we used our chrome books to research how mosaics were made and the materials used. Then we chose a design to make our class project. We planned out our design and each made an individual tile that when put together formed a piece of art.

Maths:

In Maths we have been looking at multiplication and division, using out knowledge of place value to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000.

We have also learnt how to calculate the perimeter of different shapes.  

After-school Clubs:

The children have really loved being part of the after-school clubs available to them. We have had some very excited children for Calligraphy club, choir, cricket club and participating in a dodgeball tournament. We hope to see the same enthusiasm in the clubs for next half term!

Y5 choir have been busy this half term performing for the mayor and at our lantern parade.

The Year 5 team have thoroughly enjoyed teaching Year 5 this half term and it has been wonderful to see so many children dedicated and excited for their learning and making good progress.

We look forward to welcoming all children back after half term to enjoy another 6 weeks of new learning and experiences.

See you soon,

Year 5 Team.

Its week 5 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y5…………………….

In Geography, we looked at where our food comes from to understand how many products we both import and export. We discovered that a lot of our vegetables and fruits are from warmer climates. Next week, we will use our Chromebooks to calculate how many food miles these products travelled to get to our plates.

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Friday 10th December we are taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Children will be able to come to school wearing a winter themed jumper. This could be one bought in the shops, or made at home. Children could add some tinsel to a jumper they already have. Some children have even made a spotty t-shirt before.

If children want to take part in Christmas Jumper Day, then please use our Just Giving Page. https://christmas.savethechildren.org.uk/fundraising/cjd210018881

You can donate as little or as much as you like on there. Alternatively, you can send £2 to school Friday 10th December. All money raised will go to Save the Children, making sure every child, no matter where they’re born, has essentials like food and water, healthcare, education, protection and shelter.

Y5 Football Tournament

Dear Parent(s),

As part of our sport offer at school, we will be taking part in a football tournament against Oasis Don Valley on Monday 6th December 2021.

This will be a 7-a-side football tournament with teams from High Hazels playing against teams Oasis Don Valley.

It will take place at Oasis Academy’s AstroTurf pitch.

The child will be going on Monday 6th December 2021. We shall leave school after the register and walk to the tournament. We will return by lunchtime so your child will not need a packed lunch.

As there will be some waiting between games, please ensure that your child wears warm clothing as they will be outside from 9:30-11:30.

There is no cost for this trip.

If you don’t want your child to take part, please return this form or get in touch with Mr.Sexton or Mrs. Morris.

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….

We focused on the benefits of using flashbacks within narratives in our writing classes this week. Students concluded that they provide the reader with a lot of information that they might not have known, plus, they provide a little more entertainment. 

We also did some role playing and drama with this new chapter of the book and it was a great way to learn to convey emotions. Keep up the great work, Y5!
