"Pressure is a feeling that someone is pushing you toward a certain choice, good or bad."

 

There are different types of pressure we may come across in our lives: spoken and unspoken.  We looked at the different types of pressure in PSHE using drama to act out scenarios we may meet.

We have been experimenting with light. We know that light travels in straight lines from light sources to our eye or to the object and then our eyes.  We experimented with mirrors to see around corners.

We love to dance. During dance this week we learnt lots of stretches and used a range of movement patterns such as 'step, ball, change' and 'step and clap'. We then put them together in a new dance. It was great fun.

Maths- Loop Game

During our maths lesson we played a loop game to practice reading and ordering numbers up to 7 digits.

Welcome Back

Welcome back Class 5 to an exciting year ahead of us. We missed you all so much and are so glad to have everyone back! This year we will all work hard to achieve the best we can. 2021/22 will be a busy year for us all, especially Year 6.  Being prepared with homework and equipment is essential in order to ensure we all do our best. 

 

Homework will be set on a daily basis and returned the following day. It should only take around 30 minutes to complete but it is essential that it is completed and returned on time as it will often be needed for the next lesson. If homework is not completed and returned, children will be required to miss their playtime in order to catch up. In Class 5 it is the responsibility of the child to remember their homework, not their parents or guardians. Children should also be reading on a daily basis and recording this in their reading journals. Reading journals will be checked daily and children should record what they have read each night.  Spellings will be given on Tuesdays and will be tested on the following Monday. By Year 5 and 6, children are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x12. This is essential to support their learning in maths. Please support and encourage your child to take responsibility for this in addition to other homework. 

 

P.E kits should be worn on Thursdays and Fridays for our PE lessons.  Making Class 5 take responsibility for their organisation is important in order to help the children with their transition to secondary school. 

 

We look forward to this year with you all,

 

Miss Millward and Mrs Potts
