This week in Year 5, we have continued with the exciting new topics we started last week. The children have worked really hard on consolidating their learning of how to read both digital and analogue clocks and how to work out the duration of an event. Children struggled at first but showed excellent resilience and their hard work has definitely paid off!
We have also continued to look at the features we need to include in our writing of a set of instructions. Our writing is linked to our exciting design and technology topic at the moment whereby we are looking at different types of food, healthy and seasonal foods and different cooking techniques. During the afternoon sessions, children have been given the opportunity to cook and evaluate different recipes and cooking techniques at home, and they have created some delicious looking food and smoothies! Children also got the chance to show off their amazing snowman building skills too on Monday.
Year 5 have also been extremely lucky to take part in Learning by Questions online with Miss Jones, Miss Hughes and Mr Watters, and it has been a great way of engaging learning and allowing children the chance to show off all they have learnt since the start of Year 5. Each child joins in a quiz using a unique quiz code and answers a series of questions. Their teachers are then able to see how well they are doing while the quiz is happening and are also able to offer some guidance on some tricky questions. We hope to continue to use this during our remote learning sessions to check that we have understood the topics that we have been learning.
We encourage children to be completing extra-curricular activities at home and share them on their Class Notebook in the ‘Other’ section – please tell us when this has been completed so we can share this amazing work with everyone!
