Year 5 have worked incredibly hard today planning, designing, making and, of course, tasting their pizzas. They have shown amazing perseverance and collaboration and, as a result, have produced delicious Christmas party treats.
Welcome to Cookie and Caramel who have arrived this week to year 5 Dolphins class.
We’ve been feeling Christmassy in year 5. Our Christmas tree is up and ready for baubles on Monday.
Get into the festive spirit by donating to our year 5 Mexican hamper (see flyer below). All of the hampers will be part of the raffle at the Christmas fair (Wednesday 19th December). Raffle tickets can be bought before school at £1 a ticket or £3 a strip.
This week in year 5 we’ve been investigating prime numbers. We used counters and multi link cubes to see which numbers had more than 2 factors in them.
We have also been investigating reversible and irreversible changes. We tried microwaving popcorn, burning paper, mixing vinegar with bicarbonate of soda and melting ice all to see whether the changes were reversible or irreversible.
Welcome back! It’s been lovely to see new faces and begin to get to know each other. This week, the children have begun to create mythical creature masks in order to explore our new topic – the Ancient Greeks. So far, we’ve been incredibly impressed by the positive attitudes the children have shown towards their learning and we’re looking forward to the rest of our year 5 journey.
The children have come home this week with letters about future trips this half term linked to our topic. There will also be an opportunity to meet the teachers next week (Tuesday 11th September) after school.
Thank you for all of your support in these first few weeks.
Year 5 Team
