Year 5

Hello and welcome to the Year 5 Blog!

Mrs Preece - Class Teacher and Junior Phase Manager

Hi all! In this time that we are not in school together, I thought it would be lovely to share what you are all getting up to. On this page I will share some of the lovely things you have sent me so that your friends can see too. I am missing you all lots and hope we will be back together in school soon!

Mrs Preece

HAPPY EASTER YEAR 5!

I am still missing you all lots and hope you are all staying safe and well. I hope you have found some time to enjoy the sunshine. Have a wonderful Easter!

From Mrs Preece

Joseph has been keeping busy and active! How have you all been spending you time? Have you done any Easter based activities? If you have I'd love to see them!

  

.................................................

Wow - How fantastic is this path that Libby created? I am sure this has brightened the day of everyone that has walked by!

.................................................

Edward has been very busy. He too made an amazing cake as part of the maths challenge. He has done some lovely writing linked to our rainforest topic as well. It makes me so happy to see you all keeping up your beautiful presentation and high standards - well done. I was very impressed that with some grown-up help, Edward has tried his hand at some welding!

Another day, another example of how kind and helpful you all are in Year 5! As well as work from his home-learning book, Joseph has been busy cutting the grass, plastering and doing some maintenance on his bikes. Keep up the great work Joseph!

Whilst having a tidy up in the garden today, Mrs Preece found some very small and cute baby animals. They had made their home in a bag of sand and looked very cosy. Who can guess what they are? There were more than 10 of them in total! We left them cosy and safe and will eagerly watch them grow in the coming weeks we hope. They are so young that their eyes aren't even open yet. If you think you know what they are perhaps you could let me know...

....................................................................

You all brighten up my day every day in school so it's no surprise to see you all being lovely outside of school, in the community, too and doing your best to make people smile. I love this poster that Charie has put in her window. I wonder how many people have seen this and smiled - lots I'm sure. Thank you Charlie.

......................................................

So many of you have been busy completing your baking maths challenge and the results are amazing. These pictures are from Charlie D, Poppy, Maddie and Joseph. Great work, it looks like you all measured accurately!

   

.....................................................

Poppy had some unexpected visitors in her garden this week, two ducks! She has named them Geoff and Barbara. I wonder how long they will stay?

......................................................................................

As one of their maths challenges, Year 5 were challenged to use their measuring skills to do some baking. Erin chose to make some lovely cupcakes with a little help from her little brother. I bet they tasted great - well done Erin!

 ...................................................................................... 

It looks like Oli has been fitting lots into his time at home, writing, maths, painting and some time letting off steam on his bike in the garden! I've noticed that Oli's TTR time has improved already this week - great work Oli. 

.......................................................

I was so proud of you all today when this email arrived. Lots of you wrote some lovely letters on our last day together which we posted to different care homes. The recipients have all loved your letters and art work and were all very grateful. I have popped a copy of the email I received below. You should all feel very proud of how happy you have made these people who are probably feeling a little lonely at the moment whilst they can't have visitors.

......................................................................................

Libby made such an amazing den last week. It's lovely that she has got all her fluffy friends in there with her! I think I may have to make myself one. Have you got yourself into the Easter spirit yet? As well as her maths and English work, Libby has also been doing some Easter inspired art work.

Thanks so much to Ben for sending me this fabulous fact-file all about spaniels. Does anyone you know have a spaniel? If you have completed your animal fact-file already, I wonder what animal you chose?! 


....................................................................................

I know how much you all love art - me too, so it made me really happy to see this giraffe that Joseph has drawn! Isn't it great! 

....................................................................

Charlie has been keeping fit and healthy and has been making the most of the good weather too! How many kick-ups can you all manage? Let's see who can get the highest!

......................................................................................

I have been on a lovely walk each day and have loved seeing the lambs out and about in the fields! The sun has been lovely too! 🌞 I took this photo whilst out on a walk. How have you been getting your daily exercise? 

................................................................................

The weather on the weekend was lovely so I decided to do some extreme gardening. Luckily there aren't too many unintentional holes in the garden from my digging!
