Year 5 and Year 6

Home Learning 2020

Hi all, I hope you are staying safe and all is well! 

Today marks the start of the Summer Term!

This term our theme is ‘Feel the Beat’. 

As you know, usually we get a chance to chat about some of the things we would like to learn and plan activities from there. As we are not together at this present time, we need to discuss what we would like to learn and plan our activities. 

I have set up a Teams account and can see that some of you are using it. If we can all use teams to chat and share ideas please we can go from there. To access it, log into HWB. Go into Microsoft 365 and click on Teams. You will see our classroom on there and all assignments and posts. 

Here are some ideas I came up with to do with ‘Feel the Beat’:

-Research how sound travels

-Find out about rhythm and pitch – How does different music styles make you feel?

-Research music artists / songs

-Find music in different countries & how used in their celebrations. Compare and contrast.

-Design album cover for your favourite song/artist

-Create music to accompany a short film.

-Make musical instruments using resources available

-How are musical instruments are made/played? – write a set of instructions.

-Learn about how the heart works- why does it ‘beat’?

-Why are Police known as being ‘On the Beat’? Find out about where this term came from and what it means. Pay tribute to our police (make a poster etc) 

If you can get your ideas onto Teams by Friday 24th April please we will create our new termly planning.

See you soon! 

Stay safe.

Renewable rollercoaster workshop

Last Friday, we had an awesome treat. A man called Martin, from Architecture Workshops, came in to our school do a rollercoaster workshop which was amazing ! (It took about 2 hours to make the rollercoaster ) 

First we made 3D triangles, next we put 4 together with elastic bands.

After that we connected more and more together. When it was all connected and we had a big structure with loads of triangles, we made stands to hold it. We twisted some of it and it went over the apparatus. We had to use different sizesstands up to hold it up and keep it stable.

Finally we sat under the rollercoaster whilst Martin ran around filming it and we were pretending that we were on it and we were screaming .

The most amazing part (for some people) is the that at the end we destroyed it !!!! It was great fun and here’s a few pictures to show how fun it was! 

Y5 – Wednesday 19th September

19th of September 2018

Walk a mile Wednesday: We walked 25 laps.  It was amazing and fun! It was also a little tiring! Then, we voted for committees like Eco Committee, Criw Cymraeg, Digital Leaders and School Council! After that, we did a cold write of a non-chronological report. In maths, we compared numbers using greater than or less than Symbols.

After lunch, we did the register! Then,we did Guided Reading! After that we re-searched about Roller coasters names and when they were opened. Finally we brushed our teeth!

At the end of the day we read a story called ‘Billionaire Boy’.

The end.

Our New Class – Monday 17th September

                                                   Monday 17th of September 2018


English: Today we did a very amazing project called Non-Chronological Reports. A Non-Chronological Report can be about anything as long as it is factual. Some children decided on themes such; Christmas, Easter, Halloween, School life, Animals and World War.

Maths: In Math, we continued to look at whole numbers. We found the value of certain digits in a number. e,g, 24,567 the value of 5 = 500.

Guided Reading: In Guided Reading, we did Handwriting, Pre-Reading Task, Reading, Reading Journals and Spelling Targets. There are groups up to A,B,C, D and last but not least E.

Roller Coasters: For our topic this term, we are looking at Roller Coasters. We started researching different rollercoasters ready to make a timeline from the Newest Roller Coaster to the Oldest Roller Coaster. We found out the oldest Roller Coaster  was made in 1920, and the newest was made in 2016.

Brushing Teeth: Today we just started brushing teeth! Mrs.Fielding announced we were going to start brushing teeth! The bus colours were: Blue, Green and Yellow. Isla and I are in the Yellow Bus.

Billionaire Boy: Today we read a book called ‘Billionaire Boy’ it’s about a boy who is a Billionaire, who is a very spoilt boy. In the chapter we read today, he went disguised for his new School to make sure no-one would know that he is a billionaire.

Year 5 First day in Mrs Fielding’s class

First we met our teacher, did the register and went to assembly.

We met our friends in class and made some new ones. Logan and Tyler joined us today. They really enjoyed.

We watched a minion video about class rules which was super funny. After that, we made our own class rules and decided on some after school clubs that we would like to do.

We then thought about our goals for Year 5 and wrote them on stars to be put up in class. We will look back at them at Christmas time to see if we have achieved them or are working towards them.

Mrs Fielding then showed us the Dojo’s point system. We liked earning points. We get points for winning line up legends, being on task and being really helpful.

Some children had school dinners today which was a sausage dinner and some people brought their own pack lunch.

We found out about our daily routines and are having our very own timetable to take home.


We have had a lovely first day!
