Athletics pictures

Athletics tournament 

 

Year 5 spent a glorious morning at Hertswood school's athletic tournament where we participated in events such as relays, sprints, long distance running, long jump, throwing events and more.
We all enjoyed the events we participated in.

Here are some quotes from the children:


"I had fun running the hurdles." Coco


"I enjoyed participating in the speed bouncing."  Molly


"We all did well even in the scorching hot sun." Samuel


"The 600m run was very challenging but we got there in the end." Max


"I doubted myself at first but ended up doing really well in the shot put." Oscar


"I aimed for the sky and my javelin went high." Mia


"I did better than I thought." Zak


"It was a fun and exciting morning." Kiara

Wow, we have had a fantastic week of learning!

 

In English, we have been focusing on letter writing. The children have completed this unit in two week and they have produced some really fantastic work that they should be really very proud of.

 

In maths, we have been focusing on perimeter and area. The children have been stretching their understanding to reasoning, including scaling.

 

In Science, we have been looking at ‘Forces’. We carried out an experiment measuring how friction changes on different surfaces.

 

I wish you all wonderful long weekend with your families. I look forward to continuing to teach your children in Year 6.

 

Shabbat Shalom,

We have had a wonderful week of learning in Y5! The children have been focused on their neat handwriting, we started a new unit of work in maths on shape and a new unit of work on letters in English. Thank you to those parents that bought the book 'There's a girl in the boys' bathroom' for their children! The children are really enjoying the book and love to follow the story.
 
In maths, we have been focusing on perimeter and area. Here, we have completed lots of different investigations, for example 'how many shapes can you make with the same perimeter? This is a great opportunity for them to apply their learning. Next week, we will be continuing with this.
 
In English, we've started our unit of work on letters. This is linked to our story and we are writing letters to different characters. We are focusing on using relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, additional punctuation and formal language. They are doing so incredibly well with this and I look forward to you seeing their work.
 
Also, many children still do not have the correct stationary in their pencil cases. Please can everyone check for these over the weekend. The children must come to school fully equipped to learn and we are currently missing many items, mainly glues, rulers and sharpeners. From next week, every child will need a protractor.
 
We have been very lucky to have different visitors this week carrying out workshops for Anti-bulling week. On Thursday, Streetwise joined us and today we had a joint discussion with Year 6. Children benefited greatly by both. Please see the attached pictures.
 
I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.
Shabbat Shalom,
Miss Fox

We were lucky enough to have some of the Year 6 children with us today, leading an Anti-Bullying workshop. The theme of the week is ‘It’s good to be different’.

 

We watched a video about a race where all the people taking part were the same. Then, one of them knits a new sweater. At first, the people at the race don’t like that the person is wearing something different however soon everyone starts to wear something different too. The message of the story was“It is good to be different”.

 

The children spoke about why it is good to be different and they had exceptionally thoughtful ideas including:

“Being different is being you in your own way,” Darcey.

“If everyone had the same opinions there would be no individuality,” Jasmine C.

“It’s good to be different because you don’t want to be the same as everyone else,” Benji.

 

Following this, they wrote one word about their personality and spoke about what makes them who they are. Some fantastic responses were:

“Quirky” Ella

“Active” Freddie

“Kind” Zara

“Love and care for animals” Maya and Molly

“Sporty” Harry

“Adventurous” Samuel

“Gamer” Benjamin

 

The children then wrote about the benefits of being different and what it would be like if everyone was the same. A fantastic session enjoyed by all - thank you Year 6!

 

26.5.2017

 

We have had a fantastic week of learning in Year 5. The children have thoroughly enjoyed Art Week and produced some work to be truly proud of. Look out for pictures of their work after half term!

 

In English, we have been looking at balanced arguments and picking out their key features. We have written our own on issues that the children felt passionately about for example 'Should animals be free in the wild?' and 'Should children remain being taught in school or at home?' The writing that the children have produced has been very thoughtful with many children using paragraphs to separate ideas as well as using relative clauses and expanded noun phrases.

 

In maths, we have been looking at position and direction. The children have looked at congruent shapes and coordinates as well as lines of symmetry, reflection and translation.

 

You will notice that the children have a new style of homework in their homework books. They are to complete one task each week from the grid with the expectation that they will also read, practise their spellings and complete some maths activities. These could be speedy sums or online games. 

 

After half term, we will be starting a new book which will be linked to our English unit. The book is 'There's a boy in the girls' bathroom' and it's written by Louis Sachar. Please feel free to buy a copy of this book and send your child in with it so that they can follow the story sessions in the classroom. Please ensure that your child does not read it before we start back!

 

I want to thank you for your continued support over the last half term. We have certainly had a busy but exciting few weeks! I hope that you have a wonderful half term break with your families. 

 

Shabbat Shalom,

Miss Fox

 

This week, we started a new unit of work in Science called 'Life Cycles'. The children have learnt about plants, animals and compared different animals based on their habitats. The children have thrived in this and have produced some work to be really proud of. 

In maths, we have continued to apply our understanding of place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. As well as this, the children have worked hard on understanding cubed and squared numbers and carried out investigations using these numbers. 

In English, we finished writing our reports with an independent write on school life at Clore Shalom. It was really interesting to see what the children wrote, many of them commenting on the positive changes that have been implemented since January. 

As I was not at school today, homework was not given out. Please go over the spellings that were sent out last half term as we will be having another test of the age expected spellings. This is because the children are expected to use these words in their daily writing. 

I wish you all a fantastic weekend with your families. 
Shabbat Shalom,

Miss Fox

Dear Parents,

It was so fantastic to see the children talking about Kingswood this week and reflecting on the amazing time that they had there. It was the most wonderful trip and over the next week, we will be putting up more pictures and videos from our time there!

We have had a fantastic week in Year 5 as we have started to write reports in English, ranging from one on Kingswood, to ones about our school to ones about the country. Initially, the children found this style of writing difficult but as the week has gone on we have become more confident.

In maths, we have been looking at the relationship between decimals, percentages and fractions as well as applying our understanding of fractions and percentages to word problems. The children have been tackling some very hard questions but I am pleased to tell you that they are making great progress daily.

If you haven’t already seen, the Golden Quills that have been given out in assembly are now typed up. Please read through them! We look forward to more pieces of work being displayed for you all to see.

 

I wish you all wonderful weekend with your families.

Shabbat Shalom,

Miss K Fox

Golden Quill Alert! Congratulations to Freddie, Oliver and Molly who wrote the most fantastic pieces of English work. We hope that you enjoy reading them!

Day 4

 

So here we are... finished lunch and waiting to load the coach. 

 

After breakfast, we read the notes that our classmates wrote to us on the first night and guessed who wrote our notes. This provided many smiles. 

 

Following that, we split into groups but both  completed Frisbee Golf or Equilibrium. Children challenged themselves, supported and motivated each other. 

 

We have had the most memorable week spending time with the most fantastic group of children.

 

"I loved the seesaw even though it was scary getting up there" Amy 
"I have had the most amazing time spending time with my friends and enjoying the wonderful activities" Darcey 
"I really loved the 3G swing.. although I left my tummy at the top" Elijah
"I keep thinking about how amazing and high the Leap of Faith was. I wish I could do it again!" Maxi 
"I loved celebrating my birthday with all my friends. The cake, balloons, cards and singing made me incredibly happy." Birthday boy Benjamin 

 

We hope that you have all loved the pictures and videos this week and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Day 3

 

First of all today we said "Goodbye" to Mrs Cohenwink, who returned to school but we were delighted to say "Hello" to Mrs Globe, who has joined ussmiley

 

Good evening from another great day at our residential! 

 

Breakfast again was a popular choice with all children enjoying seconds and thirds of the various cereals, toast (brown and white ), yoghurts, fruits and juices. 

 

After breakfast, we were split into our two groups and either did nightline or indoor laser. For nightline, the children completed an obstacle course blindfolded. This was great fun and engaged their teamwork skills. 

 

Our next activity was either team tech or problem solving. In team tech, the children made a robot and had to sell their robot to the instructor. In problem solving, the children were on a bench and had to complete different activities for example getting from tallest to smallest without falling off the bench. 

 

Lunch was delicious and consisted of mac and cheese or plain pasta with lots of vegetables and fillings including tuna, egg mayo or vegetarian salami. Flapjacks were a popular dessert choice. 

 

After lunch, we went to the sports centre and played different ball games. 

 

Following that, we were split into our groups but both completed a team challenge. This was a different obstacle course which tested us by holding hands and all going through a tunnel of rubber wheels, swinging on a rope from one platform to another,walking on a thin piece of wood, crossing the monkey bars with  rotating bars, over and under ropes and a spider web.

 

Dinner consisted of salt beef and latkes. Mmmmm. 

 

As usual, we had two evening activities, we completed both as a whole group. The first was the leap of faith, which really tested the children in many different ways. The second was a cinema night in the blue ray cinema. The children had a wonderful time. 

 

We feel blessed to have taken such a fantastic group of children to represent our school. 

 

Here are some quotes from children from today:

"Starting the day off chanting was the best!" Asher 
"I enjoyed fencing and learning how to use the right technique" Ella 
"I enjoyed the obstacle course" Samuel 
"I loved fencing as I've done it before so I knew what to do" Mia 
"I loved Laser as it was a fascinating experience" Jasmine C 
"As I began to pick up the Sword for fencing I knew that the fun was just starting" Benji

 

We will check in tomorrow...before we leave! We hope that you love the pictures and videos today and get a small taste of the fun that we've had.

Day 2

 

Good evening from another fabulous day at our residential! 

 

Yesterday, we put rewards in place for those rooms that fell asleep straight away. Another reward that we put in place was the tidiest room. This proved a great success!

 

Breakfast was popular today with all children enjoying seconds and thirds of the various cereals, toast (brown and white ), yoghurts, fruits and juices. They were polite, consistently remembering to say please and thank you. 

 

After breakfast, we completed a secret activity. Each child was given a piece of paper with a name on it. Their job was to write as many different nice things about that person as possible. We folded it up and put it into a cup and on Thursday night we will all read out what people wrote about us. 

 

Our next activity of the day was Bushcraft and this was completed as a whole class. Children got into groups, with a mixture of boys and girls, and built their own shelter from sticks, twigs, leaves and branches. They were taught different ways to build different types of shelters, and as a team worked together to build it. 

After this, we split into our two separate groups. One group loved the 3G swing while the other group had fun at abseiling. 

 

As the weather hasn't been kind to us, the children were excited for their hot lunch (as were we!) This was fish fingers and chips with sweetcorn, Israeli salad and coleslaw. We all particularly enjoyed the marble cake with chocolate custard. After lunch, we chilled in our rooms and changed any wet clothes before going back out to our next activities: 3G swing or archery followed by abseiling or archery. 

 

After a quick snack we were off to complete another fantastic activity. The organisation here is truly amazing. We meet our skilled instructors in the same place at the start of each activity. They then take us to where we need to be. For us, this was the Aerial Runway - an incredibly popular choice by all. 

 

Dinner consisted of hot pot or pasta with apple crumble for dessert. Mmmmm. 

We had two evening activities, the first was either Areoball or Tech Team followed by 'Mini Olympics' and here we played against another school. The children had a wonderful time. 

As a treat for being so well behaved, we organised a hot chocolate before bed.  I must say, your children are a credit to you and we are all having such a joyful time with them. 

 

Here are some quotes from children from today:

"The secret activity was lovely as it will be a surprise to find out what other people think about us" Molly 

"I have had lots of fun doing archery" Brandon 

"I got a Bullseye in archery!" Oliver 

"It has been really nice to bond as a class" Kiara 

"As we were rising up to where we would stop (3G Swing) I felt a bit worried and unsure but as I started dropping I realised the fun was just beginning" Evie

"The 3G swing amazing! At first, I was scared to go up high but when I got to the place I wanted to be I was ready. "Zara 

"On the zip wire, as you first jumped off, I couldn't believe the speed! I loved it!" Louis 

"My legs began to shake with excitement as I joyfully swung on the zip wire"

 

We will check in tomorrow... stay tuned! We hope that you love the pictures and videos and get a small taste of the fun that we are having here. 

 

The Year 5 Residential Team

Day 1

 

Good evening!

 

We have had a fabulous first  day on our residential. After a two hour journey, we settled in nicely to our rooms and spent some time wandering around the 52 acre campus. 

 

Before dinner, we played different team games outside. Dinner was delicious with many children enjoying seconds! 

Dinner consisted of turkey goujons, chips, Israeli salad and coleslaw and chocolate brownies for dessert.

 

The real fun began after dinner. We were split into two different teams and we either did a Laser tag or Aero Ball activity, both which were enjoyed by all. Following this, we had a camp fire to celebrate Yom Ha'azmaut. We toasted marshmallows, sung Israeli songs and had a special camp fire story told to us by Mrs Cohen.

 

Some comments from the children today have been:

"I enjoyed the Laser activity, especially hiding from each other while trying to shoot." Amy 

"I like my room and how it's set out!" Darcey

"I've loved spending time with different people." Freddie 

"I've been inspired to take part in new and different experiences!" Benji 

"The Areo Ball was like playing netball on a trampoline!" Maya 

"I was impressed with how high I went on the trampoline. It was like I could touch the sky" Jasmine C

 

We hope that the pictures make you smile! We will check in tomorrow.

 

The Year 5 Residential Team

Wow, we have had a fantastic first week of the Summer term! Thank you all for sending the children in with a fully stocked pencil case.
 
In maths, we have been focusing on fractions and decimals. The children have been stretching their understanding to rounding decimals and explaining their reasoning.
 
In English, we have been focusing on recount writing. As a school, we used the book 'Chalk' and produced different pieces of writing from it. We began with predicting what the story would be about; drawing chalk pictures on the playground floor to get our emotive language juices flowing; focusing on describing the action in the story; describing the characters and planning our own recount to finally writing one. Throughout the unit of work, we have been focusing on editing and improving our work continually. The children have completed this unit in one week and they have produced some really fantastic work that they should be really very proud of. You will see this in the corridor when we are back from our residential.
 
Please see below some of our chalk designs that help to inspire our writing!
 
I wish you all a restful weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday!
Shabbat Shalom,
 
Miss Fox
