Primary Academy

Year 5 (The Leopards)


Week beginning 17th September 2018


Week beginning 10th September 2018

This week, the Leopards have been researching Roald Dahl for Roald Dahl day (13th of September). We used our research to write an information text about this famous author, and discussed our favourite books that he wrote. On Friday, to continue Roald Dahl day, we all tried a peach and thought of some super vocabulary that we could use to describe them. Lots of the Leopards hadn’t tried a peach before but said that they would like to again! We then created some calligram poems in the shape of peaches.  In PE, we continued to work on our team building skills, playing some fun games, which will help us when we are playing Tag Rugby later in the term. We have continued to look at words ending in –cious, and used play-doh to help us learn our spellings. We started our R.E topic of Hinduism and looked at where this religion is practised as well as where the religion is thought to have originated.

Week beginning 4th September 2018

The Leopards have been terrific this week. Miss Scholes and Mrs Dawber have both been very proud of the work the children have completed and the attitude to learning that they have all shown through these first few days. We have been busy writing about some of the interesting things we did during the summer holidays and we have been looking at spelling some words ending in –cious. In Maths, we have been looking at place value with numbers, including millions, as well as ensuring that we have a good strong knowledge of the 3 times table. In Topic, we have looked at where Skegness is in the United Kingdom and spoken about what makes Skegness unique. In PE, we did some team building games ready for when we start playing Tag Rugby next week.

Miss Scholes and Mrs Dawber would like to ask the Leopards to continue practising tying their ties over the coming week as some of us are still finding these tricky. We would also like to remind the Leopards that they need to do lots of lovely reading over the next week - we are all aiming to attend the purple party at the end of the year!
