Week beginning 31.10.22

Week 8 and Morpurgo class are mesmerised by the Maya!


Year 5 had a supply teacher in on Wednesday, and I was so pleased to hear  Morpurgo class being described as “delightful, wonderful and hard-working”!


In English year 5 started the week with an explanation cold write. The children imagined inventions which would improve daily life. I enjoyed reading about helpful robots, cleaning robots, food machines and more! We looked at our model text and they wrote creatively on the topic of how to look after a mythical animal. They explained clearly how to care, feed and protect fairies, trolls, unicorns and even mermaids! They re-wrote their “and Tango Makes Three” stories ready to go up on display, and they even considered how to survive in a rainforest. I was impressed with their use of modal verbs and rich, descriptive vocabulary.


In maths we have been looking at rounding to estimate. The children used their understanding of place value to add and subtract. Impressive maths all around!


In Guided Reading Year 5 enjoyed a Film Viper about monkeys playing piano! Lots of great answers to explain action questions.


In History Morpurgo class were enthralled by the Maya! They used their locational understanding and geographical language to place Maya civilisation on a map.


The children loved learning a variety of simple songs to play on glockenspiels (they sounded amazing)! We created our own unique games in our computing lesson by choosing backgrounds, the size and design of the characters and the amount, sound effects and reactions of the targets.


In PE the children thoroughly enjoyed their Gaelic football lesson! 


Week 8 is complete and there’s so much more to look forward to in Year 5!



Stay safe.
