Legends

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

In English, we have been learning about legends. Most of the legends had heroes and shocking endings. Here are some examples: Whistledown, Randwick, St. George and the dragon and Finn Maccool. We have written recounts from the characters point of view. We have also created our own legend called Shoutdown. Whistledown inspired us to do this.

Year 5 have been doing an experiment using hot chocolate we all went in groups of four and we filled in a sheet so we knew lots of information about different materials . There was a box full of materials such as paper,wool,wood and plastic. Each person picked a different material and we wrapped it around plastic cups . Every hour we checked the hot chocolate . And we plotted our results on a sheet of paper.

5M - About forest school!

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

On Friday the 22nd September 5M went to Forest School. We had lots of fun playing different games in a huge hall. We all learnt the boundaries which were probably triple the size of our school's amount of space. When we set off doing our work we used compasses and wrote down the directions of the places we had to find. One of them was called a wishing gate . We all had such a fantastic time!

5S FOREST SCHOOL

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

Last week we went to forest school and we searched for hidden items.  There were letters and numbers that we had to unscramble too! Those letters and numbers spelled out 'MARSDEN YR5'. At the end, we played a fun game of cooking pot! Then we went back on the minibus.

BACK TO CHAOS.....

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

Lots has happened since we came back to school. We have our own learning partners with an agreement, and we have new groups with crazy names. Yesterday, after lunch, we all got a shock when we came back into class because the classroom was in chaos. We then began to sort out the mess looking at various properties of materials.

School values

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

How we use the school values in class

In English and PSHE, 5M use tolerance. I know this because we accept each others ideas. Also I have a little group that help me come up with some ideas for the blog. The school value we use is motivated because they are all really motivated to help out with the school blog.

What learning looks like in our class

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 5 Blog

5m work well together as a class.We try making learning fun in class eg. we were pretending to be detectives. Around the class we had facts about the Abbasid royal family and the British royal family. We had torches and went around the classroom finding the facts. We also turned the lights off and put spy music on.

If we get stuck we use other strategies (that we have already learnt) to help. The focus of the week makes us more motivated to try our best. Also we use our learning boards which we put a new topic each term. In spelling, we use our cards and word codes.
