Science Dome Excitement!

 

This week Year 5 kick-started their Spring 'Volcanoes and Earthquakes' topic in style with a memorable trip inside the Science Dome that came to visit our school. We learnt about different types of rock and how super volcanoes are formed and the devastation they can cause.

National Space Centre Trip - Wednesday 29th November 2017

 

This week Year 5 visited the National Space Centre in Leicester as a way of concluding our Earth and Space topic. We left school bright and early and managed to survive the two hour coach journey without a single toilet break!

First we began with a Mars Explorer workshop which involved programming robots to make turns and avoid rocks as they would have to do on Mars. We also had a competition to see how close teams could get to an obstruction without hitting it.

After a general tour of the Space Centre we ate our packed lunches and then visited the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium where we took a closer look at star constellations and planets in our solar system.

 

All in all we had a great day and even got home in time!

Year 5 Home Learning

 

Learning Logs

 

Learning Log tasks will  appear on the Year 5 Class Page on a Monday and then come home stuck into your Learning Log on a Wednesday as they always have. This home learning will need to be handed in on the following Monday. Be creative and have fun!

 

 

Reading

 

It is really important that you read a range of texts (from novels to newspaper reports). You do not have to read to an adult but it is great if an adult can ask you questions about what you have read. We expect you to read a minimum of five times a week and record this in your home/school communication books. These will be looked at on a Monday (5K) and a Tuesday (5C).

 

Maths

 

Your Maths home learning will come home on a Wednesday and be due in on the following Monday to your class teacher. Each week, along with your Maths home learning, you will get some times table work that you need to complete. It is really important that you develop instant recall of times tables up to 12 x 12 so please be practising!

 

Spellings

 

Our spelling procedure has changed this year! This term a spelling rule and words including this rule will come home on a Monday (following a spelling lesson based on the rule) and words will be tested on the following Monday. We recommend that you practise your spellings for 5 minutes or so each day rather than a longer period all at once.
