Year 5 - Seuss and Milne

Welcome to Year 5

Miss Butler, Mrs Samways and Mr Dack are delighted to be part of your child's learning experience this year. We are always around to support both you as parents and the children. If you need anything or you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate - pop in and speak to one of us.

This page will be updated regularly and will soon contain information about the children's topics, homework, reading (three times a week this academic year) as well as some videos and photographs so as to give you a bit of insight into your child's learning and daily routines.

Our PE days are MONDAY & THURSDAY. Could children attend school in their PE kits on these days. Thank you.


Term 2: "Rainforest Rescue"

A class of Oldfield Park students lost in the Amazon Rainforest! How will they survive? This term, the children have - quite unfortunately - become stranded many miles from home. They will have to learn to survive AND learn about their new temporary home in the jungles of South America!

Spelling Homework Term 2

You can find below a copy of the children's weekly spellings. As part of their homework the children will receive their spellings on a Monday in plenty of time for a test the following Friday. Parental support may be required because some of the spellings may well be homophones or similar tricky words.

Term 2 Topic Web & Knowledge Planner

The children have completed a Knowledge Planner covering some areas we will be looking at this term. They will be repeating the same questions at the end of the term to see what new knowledge they have acquired.

Maths Homework Term 2

From time to time some of the children will bring home additional maths homework to help them secure their knowledge and gain confidence in the subject. Although much of this homework can be completed independently, there is a section at the end of the paper allowing the parent/carer to review the child's understanding.

Term 1: "Honey, We Shrunk the Class!"

As well as conducting a study of famous artist, scientist and inventor, Leonardo de Vinci, it would seem Year 5 have also come into possession of some kind of experimental shrinking machine! Needless to say, we turned it on and all manner of chaos ensued.

"Honey, We Shrunk The Class" The Movie!

Over the term, the children have been looking at how special effects are achieved during our computing sessions. In particular, chromakeying (green screening). The following movie was written and filmed by the children. The application of the special effects were achieved by the children. Due to the chaos, one group was unfortunately overlooked when compiling the movie - this will be rectified next term.


Year 5 Enter the Dragons' Den:

A nerve-racking, but exciting time was had by all. Needless to say the Dragons put up a good fight, but Year 5 clearly had the drive and business knowledge to gain the advantage. Watch and enjoy!


Music

We have been lucky enough to have a professional singing teacher coming in to work with the children on a weekly basis. We've all got a lot out of the experience - fun was had and, hopefully, our singing has also improved.

Welcome to Milne Class!

The first of many videos this year. Welcome to Milne Class - it's only been three weeks, but I have to say, they're a fantastic bunch and we're all having a (generally) brilliant time (obviously the strange invention raised the anxiety levels somewhat).
