WELCOME TO Year 5'S PAGE
I can't believe we are in the final term of Year 5: Summer Term!
We won't be doing weekly spelling tests in Year 5, but spelling 'sounds' will be sent home after we have learned them in school (this won't always be weekly). There is more information about spelling below.
Children have a log in to 'EdShed' as well as their TTRS/Numbots log in and they should use these platforms regularly at home. These can be found in their reading diaries.
Please make sure the children bring their reading diaries in daily and to let us know if there are any messages. An adult will check and sign these every Friday.
Check this page regularly to see photos of our learning and for the latest homework and curriculum information.
Our P.E. days this half term are Fridays (dance with Miss Squir) and Thursdays. We will need outdoor kits for Thursday's sessions, which will be with Colchester United. Make sure your P.E. kits are in school on these days. It would be best for earrings to be taken out at home to minimise the risk of them getting lost, but please make sure the children can take their own earrings out if this can't be done at home.

YEAR 5 GALLERIES
Design & Technology: Joining Fabric - Phone Cases 13th May 2022 - 21 images
We have been working hard to design and make fabric phone cases. We are learning to make and use a paper pattern template, cut fabric out, stitching to join two pieces of fabric together and so much more!
Science - Which Mixture Makes The Best Bubbles? 13th May 2022 - 55 images
Look at these giggles in science this week! Year 5 are certainly enjoying their chemistry learning this term.
RE - The Conversion Of Saul in Luke's Gospel 9th May 2022 - 16 images
In Summer 1, we have been looking at the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. We revisited the story of Saul's Conversion and analysed depictions of this in fine art throughout history.
Science - Dissolving And Melting 6th May 2022 - 50 images
We are absolutely loving our chemistry learning this term! First, we look at the process of dissolving. Miss Clapp demonstrated with mixing a solute (sugar) to a solvent (water) to make a solution. We then made predictions and carried out our own investigations. In our second lesson, we looked at what happens when you add heat to some solids. We watched Miss Clapp melt chocolate and then we had a go with ice!
English -Modal Verbs 29th Mar 2022 - 12 images
We have been learning about modal verbs and Miss Clapp set us the challenge of rewriting Goldilocks using as many modal verbs as we could!
Geography - International And Fair Trade 16th Mar 2022 - 32 images
We have been looking at how the U.K. imports and exports. We have also looked at why Fair Trade is so important. We were shocked to discover how little banana farmers receive!
History - Crime & Punishment 3rd Feb 2022 - 15 images
We kicked off our new unit of learning by looking at some key vocabulary. We worked hard to match the new words to their correct definitions.
We held the Moon! 3rd Feb 2022 - 41 images
We were so lucky to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience of holding some rocks that have been in Outer Space! We had great fun with Mrs. Webb!
Science - Friction Investigation 10th Dec 2021 - 32 images
Year 5 have been learning all about forces. In this investigation, we wanted to find out which material offered the best non-slip properties for a hall flooring. We looked at the surfaces and decided that the rougher a surface was, the more friction there would be when an object moved across it so this would be the best non-slip. However, we then discussed other desirable properties when choosing a flooring for a hall that is used for PE, assemblies and eating and decided that a polished wood would be best.
P.E. Gymnastics - Partner Balances On A Balance Beam 7th Dec 2021 - 61 images
We have been working on our partner balances. We have looked at symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes, canon and unison and tried out some counterbalances.
Science - Newton Meters 7th Dec 2021 - 7 images
Mrs. Webb taught us all about gravity and Sir Isaac Newton in science this week! We learned that this force was measured in Newtons, by using a special meter, called a Newton Meter.
Mrs. Webb's Story Sack! 7th Dec 2021 - 37 images
We were very excited to take part in Mrs. Webb's immersive story sack! Mrs. Webb read us a story and as we read, we listened and watched different stimuli to help us understand the text better. We then had a go at some drama to show how people affected by climate change might feel.
Whole School Science - Biscuit Dunking! 14th Nov 2021 - 37 images
Year 5 received a letter from Mr. Lionel Richtea to ask for their help to solve his biscuit dunking problem. The Y5 Scientists did a brilliant job at investiagting!
Computing - Vector Drawings 14th Nov 2021 - 21 images
In computing, Year 5 have been learning about how to draw using a computer.
Carl Merry - Storyteller 31st Oct 2021 - 38 images
We enjoyed a whole school assembly with our visiting storyteller, Carl. We then had a workshop with him where we learned about the art of story telling!
Science - How do we know the Earth is not flat? 31st Oct 2021 - 12 images
Year 5 learned about why, throughout history, some people believed the Earth was flat and some people believed it was curved. We learned about Aristotle observing how ships disappear over the horizon. We tried this out for ourselves using a toy car moving on a flat table and compared this to it moving around a ball.
