Design and Technology

In Design and Technology this term, Year 5 have been learning about the importance of a healthy diet.  As part of our learning, we have made bread – this drew on a lot of our skills and learning, including reading and maths, and the end result was very tasty indeed!

Peppermint Delights

As part of our Literacy, we have been learning about instruction texts – and what better way than by making Peppermint Creams!  Here are some pictures of us using our culinary skills to make the perfect peppermint paste. 

Now that we have made them, we will be writing a set of instructions for others to do the same – but will theirs taste as good as ours?...

Y5 Victorian Classroom Visit

Y5 have been lucky enough to time-travel back to the Victorian Era and visited the Victorian Classroom at Springfield School. Children experienced life as Victorian scholars, wearing Victorian school clothes, experiencing Victorian lessons and Victorian playtimes. All the children took on Victorian names, and everyone had a role to play with the acting. Some children even had the misfortune of discovering some of the Victorian punishments, including the finger stocks and the cane. Luckily, modern schools don’t use those punishments!

Welcome to Y5

Welcome back!  We hope you and your family have enjoyed a restful summer break.  We have a very exciting year ahead of us in Year 5 and we will just describe here a little of what we will be doing this half-term.  Our theme until Christmas is Victorian Sheffield and much of our learning will be linked to this.

Thornbridge 2016

At the beginning of March, both of the Year 5 classes went on a residential trip to Thornbridge Outdoors in the Peak District.  Children had a really action packed (and often muddy!) time taking part in a variety of activities.  Here are some photos which give a taster of what they did.

Inter-class Gymnastics competition

Over the course of this term, during our indoor P.E. sessions, we have been learning a variety of gymnastic skills.  We combined these into short routines and held an inter-class competition.  Look out for some of our rising stars at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games!

Autumn 2

Classic Nonsense Poetry

In Year 5, we have been reading the classic poem ‘The Mad Gardener’s Song’ by Lewis Carroll.  This has inspired us to write our own nonsense poems, which are on display outside the Y5 classrooms.  The poems have a pattern of syllables and rhymes – can you spot what it is?

Victorians

Y5 have begun their topic on The Victorians with a focus on a Victorian Story: Street Child. It is about a young boy, Jim Jarvis who has a very challenging life and experiences some of the worst things of the Victorian times: child labour, the workhouse, losing his family and a lack of education.

We have written our own versions of chapter one and researched the Victorian times using our new laptops.

See photographs of our trip in the Year 5 gallery.

Autumn 1 2015

Miss Apsa, Mr Dowson, Mrs Bennett and Miss Booth would like to welcome all of our new Year 5 pupils to their classes.  We think it is going to be a very exciting year!  Below is an outline of what we will be learning about this half term.  We also wanted to mention some of the other interesting things we will be doing over the year, for example learning to play the cornet, as well as visiting a real Vistorian classroom!

PE Skills with SUFC

Last half term Y5, had the great opportunity to work with SUFC to develop their PE games skills.
They had the opportunity to play dodge ball, handball, and football and receive coaching on these sports.
In addition to this, we spent time after the session learning about healthy eating and the different food groups

Spring 1 Parent Information

In Year 5 we have been learning to play the cornet (which is a musical instrument) and learning to play different rhythms.  Outstandingly, our music teacher, who is called Becca, comes on a Tuesday and teaches us how to play the different notes using the valves.  When we are playing our cornet, we warm up our lips by doing buzzes and we sing songs.  Also we play different notes (which are the notes C, D, E) and we play tunes such as Eadie's got the blues.  Gratefully, Becca (the amazing musician) is getting us ready for a concert -would you like to come?

 

Y5 made gruel.

Y5 were busy experiencing the Victorian work house life style and make gruel.

We thought it didn’t taste very nice at all.

We also made and compared the gruel to porridge which we like lots more!

We made the gruel using oats and water and then heated it on a stove. We made the porridge with milk which made it taste lots better!

Hello! Welcome to Y5!
We are very excited about our Victorian topic which we shall be exploring this term. Amazingly, we shall be looking at and making Victorian houses, and even experiencing a real life Victorian school! 
Of course, we will still be developing our reading, writing and maths skills further to make sure we are superstars and achieve our potential this year. 
We are looking forward to choosing our first Always children of the year, and can’t wait to see who impresses us.
Your Y5 team – Miss Apsa, Miss Rudd, Mrs Bennett.
