We are just a couple of weeks away from completing our first term in 5 Lime! Here's a little update...
We have really enjoyed learning about the Lebanese civil war through the book 'Oranges in No Man's Land'. It has been highly emotive and allowed for lots of beautiful writing to emerge from the themes. In Maths, we are now working on addition and subtraction calculations. The children are really developing their reasoning skills.
We have had some beautiful lessons on the themes of love and forgiveness through our RE curriculum. The children have really enjoyed exploring these themes and have produced some beautiful poetry and art work expressing their thoughts.
We had a great day during Art Day, which was in preparation for Art on The Hill. Mrs H organised the whole school event and Year 5 focused on still life using mixed media to create their masterpieces. The art work was inspired by the Bristol artist, Mary Feddon.
We are very much looking forward to our visit to the George Muller Museum and learning about how he helped so many children in Bristol.
What was life like as a child growing up in a country engulfed in civil war?
Welcome to Term 1 in Year 5 Lime!
I hope you are all rested up and ready for the start of the new academic year. This term, the whole school topic is: Charity. Year 5 will be focusing on the question: do all children in the world have the same opportunities? We will be making learning as cross-curricular as possible, so that the children are able to make more links with their learning and be more engaged and motivated learners. An overview of the Year 5 curriculum can be found on this page.
Every day, there will be an emphasis on learning spelling patterns and rules. The key spelling words for the term can be found on this page for you to practice with your child. These words have been selected from the book that we are focusing on this term called: Oranges in No Man's Land by Elizabeth Laird.
Please continue to practice time tables at home and create opportunities to read and discuss books together.
P.E. will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that your child is sent to school with the appropriate P.E. kit.
