Have a great half term break!

I just wanted to say thank you to all the children for an amazing first half term together. I am truly lucky to have such a wonderful class, each and every child makes our class so special.

Over half term I have asked the children to practice all the spellings we have learnt this half term- I am aware some have left their spelling journals in school so here is the full list.

Finally, thank you for making my Birthday so lovely. All the children have made me feel super special. Thank you for the cards and gifts- I am so grateful!

I hope you all have lovely half term breaks. Look after yourselves and your families and I look forward to seeing you all on the 5th November.

Tremendous Topic

Our topic is the Mayans and today (Friday) we were looking at the Mayan Creation Story.

Next, we did pop-up books about the Mayan creation story. We all did different scenes. In total, we will have 3 different books as everyone made one page. We all had an epic time in the end and all came up with very creative ideas and brought them to life fantastically. We look forward to doing more exciting things like this in the future and hope you look forward to hearing about them. It was quite a day! The only down side was that the day had to come to an end. Goodbye for another week.

Poetry Day Amazing

On Thursday, it was National Poetry Day. We went to the Year 2/3 classroom and partnered up with them.

We wrote poems with them about the changes of Autumn as this year’s theme is change. We had a brilliant time.

We made 3 poems: 5W’s, Two verse and Chinquian. We had a lot of fun and will look after our buddies for the rest of the year. We will now help them with writing their class blog as we are more experienced. It was great. We all had a lovely time.

Week 2

This week was very fun!

On Monday, we had a visitor from the charity The British Red Cross. We had some fun thinking about if we should stay or leave our homes in different scenarios.

On Tuesday, we learnt about forces in Science. We experimented with different magnets and we wrote about what we knew and what we wanted to know in a KWL grid.

On Thursday, we did the Mayans. We learnt about how they spoke, and we identified different pictures about the Mayans. We found out what Pok-a-Tok was: a game in which you could be sacrificed at the end.

On Friday, we had two people from Sheffield United come in. We learnt about exercise and played some football. It was really fun!

Super Start

I apologise for the delay in posting this- it’s taken a while to get passwords and logins swapped. The year 5 class bloggers wrote this about our first week back:

We started our Tuesday morning with a game, so we could say good morning to everyone. We had to say ‘Good-morning’ everytime we passed the teddy- or teddies as Miss Cheetham kept adding more and more teddies!

On Thursday, we did a big write and added pictures on the paper. We did them very creatively as we used our own new watercolours. We are very grateful for the resources and we are looking forward to doing another big write.

This morning (Friday) we did religious artwork. You could basically choose anything you wanted as long as it was related to being part of a Catholic school and community. We got to use our watercolours again :).

Our Y5s learnt about P4C (Philosophy For Children) for the first time and our Y6s got to do it again.

Welcome to Year 5/6

It might be a little late but welcome to year 5/6. I am really looking forward to our year together!

This year I have decided to have class bloggers, so many of the posts will have been written by the children themselves.

I will be uploading homework onto the blog weekly. Both year groups will be given Maths and English (Reading and/or Grammar) homework on Wednesdays to be completed for the following Tuesday. We will be marking the homework together, enabling the children to take ownership of their learning.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions, issues or concerns.
