Year 5 (The Leopards)
Fortnight beginning 14.10.19
In Year 5, we have had great fun writing our last pieces of work from our class text, Beowulf. We have hot-seated some of the main characters, thinking of interesting questions and answers as if we were King Hrothgar and Beowulf. We have produced thoughtful diary entries and written letters home. In DT, we have been looking at why we should eat healthily. We used a conscience ally, where the children had to give reasons why Mrs Ryan should eat fruit and vegetables or why she should have sweets and chocolate. We then created persuasive posters for vegetable soup ready to sell for Children in Need.

We have had a very active couple of weeks in Leopard Class. In PE this term, we have really enjoyed taking part in tag rugby. Our last rugby lesson with Mr Parker finished with an exciting rugby style game where all the adults joined in too! In Science, we have been questioning what a fair test looks like. We have learned all about Eliud Kipchoge’s amazing marathon time and why it did not count as a world record. We ran our own kilometre around (and around) the playground to see how fast we were in comparison. The children have also continued to wow us with their own legends in English and calculation skills in Maths.

We have had an extremely exciting visit in Y5 from PCSO Claire to talk to us about joining the Mini Police. The children have been asked to prepare a presentation if they would like to apply for one of the positions. The children have been continuing to impress us with their knowledge of place value in Maths, including negative numbers and rounding. We have really enjoyed the story of Beowulf as our class text. We are basing lots of our English and reading work around this for the rest of this term. Alongside all of this, the Leopards have had some amazing sessions in Music and PE and have been impressing all of their adults.

What a great start we have had to Year 5! The children have settled in very well and are looking very smart in their new shirts and ties. They have enjoyed researching and writing fact files about leopards, as this is our class name. We have already had some brilliant pieces of home learning brought in to class, ranging from stories to times table grids. Keep up the good work, Leopards!
