Whittle Cup!

Date: 13th Jun 2018 @ 4:14pm

The Whittle Cup is a touch-rugby tournament that has been running for over 10 years now and is held at Newton Storm Cricket Club. 

Today, we sent a team to compete with some of the best young players in St Helens. After winning our first game and  losing our second in a closely fought contest, the team were full of optimism. We went on to win 3 more games after that and narrowly missed qualifying for the knockout stages. 

The team behaved superbly and even got to meet and play with some of the Saints players. We all had a great day!

Thank you to the parents who came and supported the team as well!

A select number of boys from year 5 and year 4 participated in a football tournament today. The standard of play was fantastic. The boys did really well finishing 3rd in our group. 

Afterwards, we played a couple of friendlies against other schools and managed to keep two clean sheets. Well done!

 

World Book Day!

Today, we celebrated World Book Day! 

We read the story 'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore' which the children loved!

Well done to everyone who came dressed up. There were some fantastic characters in class today.

Chef Academy

Date: 25th Jan 2018 @ 4:57pm

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!

The children have been preparing, chopping, slicing, dicing and mixing with the help of 'The Junior Chef Academy' this afternoon. They made szechuan noodles as part of the 'A taste of China' lesson. The children were instructed step by step through the recipe by our Chef and given the opportunity to show off their cooking skills!

They had a great time and didnt stop smiling and laughing throughout the lesson. We definitely have a few future Jamie Olivers on our hands in Y5!

 

The HighwayMan Hot Seating!

THE HIGHWAYMAN

This week we have focussed on the traditional poem 'The HighwayMan'.

We have explored the different themes and discovered what story is being told. Today, we looked at how the main characters felt during the story and how these feelings effected their thoughts and actions.

We used props and costumes to change into the main characters.  Once we had 'The HighwayMan' and the other characters in the room, we asked lots of questions about how they were feeling in different situations!

 

 

Y5 Class WW2 assembly

Date: 19th Dec 2017 @ 4:15pm

This half term, we have worked very hard learning all about World War 2. We decided as a class that we would like to focus on the evacuation of children from city areas in our assembly. Y5 thought that this was the most relatable part of our learning and became one of the most interesting aspects of our WW2 topic.

The assembly was about two young children and their journey from a city to the countryside. It helped the other children understand what these children went through and sacrifices parents had to make. We loved performing, singing and educating everyone on this very important section of our history!

Diary Entries!

Date: 28th Nov 2017 @ 12:19pm

As part of our World War 2 topic, we have been looking at the lives of evacuees. We have found out that a lot of evacuees used to write in journals or diaries so we have decided to write some diary extracts as if WE were evacuees. 

Today's lesson involved researching the different features of a diary exctract and talking about how emotive language would have been used in a diary.

Suspense Story!

Date: 17th Nov 2017 @ 3:43pm

In English, Y5 have been learning about how to build suspense in their writing. We have explored a story called 'Francis' which is about a girl who rows her boat into the middle of a lake and hears knocks on the bottom of the boat. We have listened to how the narrator reads the story and found where the author has built tension. 

The first time we heard the story we turned the lights off and made the room really spooky. We turned our tables upside down and pretended that we were in the boat instead of Francis!

 

 

Maths Board Games 2

Date: 19th Jul 2017 @ 11:32am

Y5 children have been busy making Maths Board Games for the Y3 children in the past week. 

Keibhy Powell in Y5 said, " First we looked at different types of board games which gave us inspiration and ideas for our own. We then planned our board games in our books and wrote down the instructions. After that, we looked at the Y3 maths curriculum and this was how we found out questions to ask the children. We then made it in real-life and made 3d touches to them to make them look more appealing."

Joel Thompson in Y3 said, "I really enjoyed the board games. They are really fun and no one is playing unfairly. I've been learning a lot of things like 6 X 50 is 300 and it was easy to work out!"

 

The children have all worked very hard and had a great time this morning.

Maths Board Games

Date: 19th May 2017 @ 2:24pm

As a treat at the end of assessment week, the children played maths board games. These board games challenge the childrens' timestable knowledge. The majority are strategy games which makes the children think about other players answers and not only their own. They involve working out multiple sums at once and making connections using the inverse operation.

Anglo-Saxon Day

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 10:30am

We has an Anglo-Saxon expert came to our class and taught us how to make Anglo-Saxon shields and brooches.The children had a great day and all learnt a lot about the Anglo-Saxons.

The Elves and the Shoemaker

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 10:00am

As a whole school project, each class read the Elves and the Shoemaker and used this as a focus for their writing. In Y5, we decided to have a look at whether it was unfair or not that the Elves were working for the shoemaker. We had a discussion using P4C (Philosophy for Children) and came to the conclusion that the elves had poor working conditions, no pay, unsocialble hours and many more. A lot of the children noticed that this related to some of the articles that we have been looking at in our Values lessons. We produced news reports, newspaper articles and diary entries from the elves. 

Beowulf (Talk for Writing)

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 9:09am

We read the story of Beowulf as part of our Anglo-Saxon topic. We retold the story using actions and story maps which helped us to remember it. This meant we could concentrate on the quality of our writing rather than trying to remember the story.
