5IB

Class Teacher: Miss Bryant 

 

LSA: Mrs Kelly 

Welcome to 5IBs class page.

The children from 5IB have had a brilliant start to their year and are already working hard. The children show real enthusiasm for their learning and I am really looking forward to seeing our learning journey unfold this academic year.

 

 

Below is some key information that you may find useful.

 

Reading Books

Please ensure you record any reading that takes place at home with a simple comment inside your child’s Reading Record. Children will be awarded with a reading bead every time their Reading Record is signed. We currently have three children that have over 20 reading beads! If the children read certain books from our reading recommendation list, they earn a sticker and 5 house points. Six children have read a book from the list, a good start 5IB!

 

 

Spellings

Spellings are handed out on a Friday ready for a test the following Friday. Please make sure the children are practising their spellings every week. Children can practise their spellings in any way they like – we have sent home a list of suggested techniques (some are quite fun!) to help the children learn the weekly spellings.

 


Times Tables
These are also handed out every Friday. At the start of the year, all children in year 5 started on their 3 times tables. It is essential the children practise their times tables every week ready for their test on the following Friday. When the children have answered all 60 times tables questions correctly they can then move up to the next level. We currently have 2 children on their 6 times tables! I have attached a couple of recommended websites for children to use to help with learning their times tables below.

English

Year 5 have recently completed a unit on discussion texts where the children had to write about whether or not children should have to wear school uniform. Our current unit is focussed on a defeating the monster tale text called Perseus and Medusa. In this unit the children will be developing their character description skills and building on their SPaG knowledge.

 

Maths

In maths, Year 5 are working with prime, square and cube numbers. The children will also be developing their multiplication and division skills.

 

Science

The children have finished their first unit on forces and will now be learning about properties of materials.

 

Topic

We have just finished our topic on WW1. The children will now be exploring the key events and people involved in WW2.

We were really proud of the two girls from 5IB that came in the top three for their entries in the anti-littering poster competition. The girls won a medal, a certificate and some other prizes. Look out for their works of art that will be displayed around Bridgwater in the coming weeks.

Year 5 were incredibly lucky to get the chance to visit the Fleet Air Arm Museum. The children were able to test their topic knowledge of WW1 and WW2 during their visit - the teachers and staff at the museum were impressed by the facts the children both remembered and shared in the time we were there. Whilst at the museum, the children got to see various aircraft that were used during the wars and many children loved being able to see the inside of Concorde! During the day, Year 5 were treated to a workshop about evacuation where they were shown various gas masks, items of clothing that the evacuees would have taken with them and we even practised what to do in the event of an air raid! Overall, an interrsting and engaging school trip.

In topic today, 5IB were learning about what it meant to be an evacuee in WW2 and as a result made gas masks out of card, tissue paper and cellophane.

The children in Year 5 had another fantastic morning at Blake. Students from Blake hosted a gymnastic and dance event - the children really enjoyed themselves.

Our Picture of the Month is The Great Wave by Japanese artist Hokusai. 5IB were asked to recreate the print using only the materials they were provided with (charcoal, graphite pencils and oil pastels). The results were fantastic!

5IB worked really hard to make over 200 individual paper poppies in their topic lesson (some even gave up their lunchtimes to make even more!). Their poppies will be part of a Remembrance Day dispay that will be put up in Angel Place in November.

Another example of children from 5IB being conscientious learners. A challenge to make his very own dragon inspired boat, he took the time to make his boat at home and the rest of 5IB were really impressed with his creation.

In science this week, 5IB were learning about water resistance and the benefits a streamlined design has on an object. Their task was to make their own boats that will be tested next week.

We were using iPads to research facts about the battle of the Somme. The children are really enjoying their WW1 topic so far!

Some of the children in 5IB have been taking a conscientious attitude toward their own learning and have been writing some stories at home, a few have read their stories out to the class at the end of the day.

In English, the children have been working on warning stories and developing their setting description skills. They have been using dictionaries and thesauruses (and colour thesauruses) to improve their writing.

 

In maths, the children have been working on developing their place value knowledge and are beginning to work on the four operations.
