Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 class blog.

We have had a great first couple of weeks back in Year 5 and have wasted no time in getting stuck into our topics. The children have really impressed me with their attitude towards their learning and their knowledge of rainforest animals!

Today we learnt about the layers of the rainforest and about which animals could be found in each. The children blew me away with the accuracy of their fantastic drawings!

Today we have been busy creating our own mythical rainforest animals. We made some funny looking creatures...

We then wrote about what they look like and their habitat, before introducing them to each other.

We have loved getting stuck into our new class text, 'The Rainforest.' We are only a couple of chapters in and there have been so many twists and turns already!

I have been so impressed with how well the class are engaging with home reading. Each time a child reads at home they earn credit that they can pay into the class bank. Credit can be exchanged for rewards. Once a week children count their credits and record them on their paying slips.

We have been reading the book, 'The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.' This book talks lots about feelings and we discussed, as a class, the mixture of feelings we have felt over the last few months. We created some art work in the same style as the illustrator and added our own motivational quotes too.

On our first day back in school, we painted birthday cards using watercolours. When it is someone's birthday they will be able to pick a card from the class. Here we are in action...

  

and here are some of our creations...

Our rainforest display is looking fantastic! Thank you to all of those children who have already got their rainforest animal to me.

I wonder if you can spot the latest editions... It seems as if a family of sloths have moved in...

This is our class recognition board. This board is a celebration of how fantastic you all are and of all the wonderful things that you do. Teachers, Teaching Assistant, Play-Leaders and your friends can all pop things on your clip board to thank you and recognise you for going above and beyond. There are welcome messages waiting for you... I have turned them around for now because all will be revealed in September!

And now we have a beautiful bird hanging from the tree... Thank you Chloe and well done. I love it!

Wow - I was very impressed when Florence brought into school the amazing snake that she has made for our rainforest display! It is super Florence! I can't wait to see what other animals come my way.
