Term 4

Term 4

 

        Wow, term 3 flew by! We have been planning lots of exciting learning opportunities for year 5 in term 4 and we can’t wait to get started.

        The whole school theme is 'A Moment in Time'. Our question will be 'What Was Life Like During the War? We will be focusing on World War II and its impact on people in and around Bristol.

We have the opportunity to go to the farm this term. Chery class will be finding out about how people lived off the land during the war because of restrictions on imports and rationing.

         Our class book is Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian. Set during the Second World War, the main character is a young boy named William who is evacuated to the countryside to live with a grieving widower named Tom. We will be basing a lot of our English learning on the book by writing letters, news reports and writing an alternative ending to the story.

         Our Science topic, Forces, will extend over the next two terms (4 and 5). We will be moving on from push and pull by learning about more complex forces - gravity, friction, air and water resistance and mechanisms. As usual, Cherry class will carry out several investigations and experiments where the children will develop their scientific enquiry skills.

         In Maths, we will be moving on to division, learning the long division method. Furthermore, we will start our fractions unit of work where our multiplication and division facts will come into good use.

         In our final week, Year 5 will be going on a class trip. This will be on Wednesday 3rd April. Letters will be sent out on the first week of the term so please return them as soon as possible. As usual, we will need parent helpers to accompany us on the trip. If you can come along, please indicate this on your child’s permission slip.

         PE this term is on a Wednesday and Thursday but as always, I ask for PE kits to be in school Monday-Friday just in case there are any timetable changes or extra PE sessions.

         Please continue to encourage your child to read every day and ask them questions about what they have read to develop their comprehension skills. It is also be very helpful if time table facts are practiced daily to develop speed. If they can do this, then try division facts. This will help your child across all areas of Maths. Additionally, the spelling words for this term and homework ideas linked to our topics this term can be found on this page.

          Please see me at the end of the school day if you have any more questions or queries. I am always happy to help where I can.

 

Hope you have a great half term!

Miss Aubrey

Week 2 Update

 

Cherry class has had a great start to term 4. We have listened to Neville Chamberlain’s broadcast declaring war and acted out freeze frames to show how people were feeling.

 

We absolutely love our class text. We are getting to know the characters and asking questions about the things they are doing because it is set in war time.

 

We enjoyed celebrating Eistedfodd, making love spoons and taking part in or watching our festival of music and dance.

 

Next week, we are visiting SMRC. If anyone can accompany us please let Miss Aubrey or a member of the year 5 team know.

‘We have been learning how to prove that fractions are equivalent by drawing diagrams (bar models).’ Malak

 

‘We went to the church and we learnt about the Easter Story by looking at paintings and artwork about the different events. We also created our own by using oil pastels and showed them to the class at the end.’ Lola

 

‘Yesterday, in Art, we were learning how to sew. We practised the running stitch and back stitch by sewing our names onto fabric.’ Dom

End of Term 4

 

Cherry class has had a brilliant time this term!

 

We have come to the end of our World War 2 topic and I know that we have absolutely loved finding out about a big event in history, what happened to Bristol and how it affected people’s everyday lives.

 

We had a fantastic school trip where the children were immersed into a real WWII experience. Thank you to everyone who helped and made it possible for us to go. Below are some pictures of our trip.

 

We have finished off the term week by watching the film version of Goodnight Mr Tom.
