Maths Fractions

In year 5,in maths, we have been learning about fractions.

At the start of term we were in the learning pit, which is a pit and you move up when you improve, but towards now we have got better!

We now know how to add and subtract with fractions and which fraction is smaller and bigger than others.

Eg:1/18  <  1/2

Year 5 Christmas Enterprise 2018

Year 5 will be making stone decorations to sell at the Christmas Enterprise Fair on Monday 10th December 2018 from 3:20pm – 4:45pm.

These will be available to buy on the day for 20p/30p.

We have the opportunity to take pre-orders which can be personalised, and will come individually gift wrapped. These will be 50p each and will be created by your child (in year 5) as a beautiful gift or memory. You are welcome to pre-order or buy as many as you want, but we do ask for payment with the pre-order sheets by Wednesday 28th November. This will enable us to ensure we have plenty of time to create beautiful stones for you to enjoy year after year.

All profits raised from our sales at the Enterprise Fair will go towards future Year 5 trips and school based activities, so please dig deep and help send us on some amazing adventures for the rest of the school year.

Brilliant Bloggers

So far this year, Pearl class have been busy working on all sorts of activities to help our learning. Look out for our blog posts, written by class members, explaining some of our favourites!

We have been drafting our blogs, choosing a catchy title and making sure that we explain carefully, as well as selecting and inserting photographs.

We’ve had lots of fun doing the activities – we hope you enjoy reading about them!

Drama in Year Five!

In Term Five we responded to the story from the poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. The children enjoyed recreating dramatic scenes from the story. They worked very well collaboratively and were able
then to go on to some good writing

Year Five experience expert tuition in Gymnastics

Year Fives have very much enjoyed our sporting visitors, who have been able to inspire the children with their gymnastics.

The pupils were encouraged to make shapes while jumping!

Here the pupils were asked to make letters and numbers using their bodies only. As you can see they worked well together.

Warming up was fun with various games to get the pupils to work as a team.

Fun in French!

Pearl and Ruby classes have been learning to talk about where we live as part of our learning for French.

We started by learning vocabulary for common buildings such as the church and school.  Next we moved on to finding out how to say some of the special features of our town such as the pier and Alexandra Park.

We created model towns as 3d dictionaries and used our vocabulary to write simple sentences to describe Hastings.

As our final step, we combined our sentences with questions to create persuasive leaflets aimed at people visiting our town.
