Golden Eagles (Y5)

We Escaped The Room (Well … some of us did!)

The Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls had a fantastic time in Sheffield this week. Each child had the opportunity to experience an exciting escape room at Escape Sheffield. The adults were so impressed with the children’s teamwork, problem solving and resilience. Some children visited the ‘Witchcraft and Wizardry’ room and others had a go at the ‘221b Baker Street’ room. We are now buzzing with ideas for our own escape room, which brave parents, carers, family and friends will have the opportunity to try towards the end of term. Watch this space …

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 13th July

2020-07-14 11:38:55 vbower

Good morning everyone!

This is your last week in Y5. Well done for working so hard during this very strange and very difficult time. I hope you all have a lovely summer.

National Oak Academy haven’t produced any lessons for this week, so I would like you to concentrate on practising your times tables on TT Rockstars and spending some time each day reading. There are some great lessons on daily lessons, BBC Bitesize. In the English lesson, there is a video where Michael Morpurgo discusses his book ‘The Elephant in the Garden,’ which was on our reading spine this year. There are other lessons including a science lesson focusing on the solar system.

 

You should have also received your Getting to Know Me form. Please fill it in and email it to Mrs Roberts – I know she is looking forward to reading them all.

Thank you for a wonderful year. Have a lovely summer and I’ll see you all in September.

Take care

Mrs Bower

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 6th July

2020-07-06 09:18:31 vbower

Good morning!

I hope that you’re all keeping well and have had a lovely weekend.

I have phoned round and managed to speak to most of you. It was lovely chatting to you and getting to know what you’ve been up to. There are a couple of people who I have tried to phone a few times and haven’t got through; please contact me if there’s anything that you’re concerned with or if you’d like to talk to me.

On National Oak Academy this week, the focus in English is on short stories. At the end of the week, you will be asked to write a short story based on the myth of Hercules, involving a mythical creature.

In maths, the focus is on solving a range of problems; these lessons would be very useful in showing how you can apply your maths knowledge to problem solving. There are many other lessons for you to access, including Spanish, electrical circuits and music. Let me know which ones you have a go at.

Well done again to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week and please continue to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

Take care and I’m looking forward to reading your short stories.

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 29th June

2020-06-29 09:03:40 vbower

Hello everyone!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend, although I am not impressed with the weather this morning – I’ve got used to having blue skies and beautiful weather.

Again, this week I would like you to continue to use the lessons on the Oak National Academy website. In maths, quadrilaterals is the focus and then the focus moves onto investigating properties of 3D shapes. Towards the end of the week, you will be looking at 2D nets of 3D shapes.

In English, the focus is on newspaper reports. During the week, you will be looking at features of newspaper reports and investigating how they are structured. By the end of the week, I would like you to write a newspaper report about a real event in the news or an event that you have made up.

There are also other lessons you could try. In science, there continues to be a focus on electricity looking at electrical conductors and insulators. There is also an interesting lesson about a city in Brazil, which is has become a ‘green’ city that includes innovative design and holds sustainability at its heart.

Well done again to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week and please continue to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and I’m looking forward to read your newspaper reports.

Take care,

Mrs Bower

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 22nd June

2020-06-22 09:28:33 vbower

Hello everyone!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.

Last week, I received some fantastic pieces of writing discussing whether school uniform should be banned and some interesting facts about Buddhism. I loved seeing the work you produced and I’m looking forward to see what you get up to this week.

This week I would like you to continue to use the lessons on the Oak National Academy website. In maths, the focus is on 2D shape – looking at the properties of polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals.

In English, the focus is on biographies. During the week, you will be looking at examples of biographies and investigating how they are structured. By the end of the week, I would like you to write a biography about someone you are particularly interested in.

There are also other lessons you could try. In science, there continues to be a focus on electricity and drawing circuits using symbols. You could also have a look at the art lesson, which is all about the artist Henri Matisse.

Well done again to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week and please continue to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
