Year 5

 Update for Week beginning 10.7.17

What an exciting week we have had in school.  We had a soggy but enjoyable beach trip on Tuesday. The children were great ambassadors for St James, being respectful when approaching people to ask their survey questions to and creating artistic sand sculptures.

On Thursday, the children had a very exciting afternoon meeting their new teachers!

We are also looking forward to our Languages Day on Friday, when the children will be able to learn different languages throughout the morning.

English and Maths information:

In Maths : we have been collating and presenting the data from the children’s beach survey in variety of ways e.g line graphs, bar charts and pie charts.

In English: The children wrote an excellent recount of their beach trip – the walk back to school with wet feet featured greatly within their recounts.

They have also been writing letters of application for their new roles in Year 6.

Other curriculum news:

In project we are continuing with our learning about coasts.  The children have created excellent coastal features out of clay and labelled how they are formed.

They have also been using their artistic techniques to create field sketches of coastal features.
