Hi from Mrs Berger & Mrs Goldsmith

Hi everyone!!

We hope you have had a good weekend. We will now be communicating with you on here for a while... Remember, you can send us an email anytime and we will get back to you during school hours :-) year5@cloreshalom.herts.sch.uk. Please remember that any one of us will reply to your email so don't write to one of us in particular :-)

Let us know what you have been up to, are you making any videos? Cooking delicious meals? Creating masterpieces of art or online games on purple mash...? We want to hear from you.

We are having a few technical issues with the grid and resources which we hope will be emailed to you some time tomorrow...please bare with us! We will also upload it to the blog.

In the meantime, check out the video below of Mrs Woolstone reading some more of 'Holes' so you can sit back, relax, and listen to our class book.

We miss you lots!

Mrs Simon came to visit us today to talk about people who are deaf or deaf blind As she works for JDA. The children have been learning about Diversity Awareness Month and how everyone is different. They learnt how to sign their names using finger spelling and were taught some simple greetings. It was a very interesting and informative talk which the children greatly benefitted from.

We have been learning some techniques which will help us to solve tricky questions in Maths. We have looked at doubling and halving to help solve tricky multiplication questions and learning the rules of divisibility so that we can quickly identify which numbers can be divided.

In English this week, we have been learning about recount writing. We have given the children wide experiences of different recounts to familiarise themselves with what is expected when they write their own next week.

During computing, we have been developing our spread sheet skills using the 'how many' tool to calculate the number of vowels in words.

Maths manipulatives

Today we used manipulatives in maths to help us solve problems involving negative numbers. 

We had a very interesting discussion around rights and responsibilities during PSHE and whether or not everyone should have equal rights. What would it be like if we did not have any rules?

 

We had great fun in a dance workshop today.

We have had a great start to year five and would like to thank all the parents for the individual copies of the BFG which has made guiding reading much more accessible and the children are able to engage in the text much more.  We are looking forward to seeing you at the curriculum evening tomorrow night (Tuesday 10th September).  In maths we have been looking at place value of numbers up to 1,000,000 and the children have been using the manipulatives to help them to achieve this.  In PSHE the children began looking into knowing some of the things that help them in school to learn and play well together. Today we began our science topic on materials with an experiment all about dissolving. Please see pictures below.
