Project 

Chemical Chaos

The children are nearing the end of our ‘Back in Time’ project based around the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. Next week, we will be holding our Year 5 museum to share everything we have learnt. We will put lots of pictures and videos of this work onto the website year group page, so you are able to see all the brilliant work Year 5 have done.

Our new project that we will be studying is ‘Chemical Chaos’. The children will be amazed by the colours and explosions created and will become ‘Mad Scientists’ for the day to experience first-hand chemical reactions when a local secondary school science laboratory will be demonstrating some fabulous experiments. Back in the Year 5 classroom’s they will continue in their quest of discovery as they explore thermal conductors and insulators, separating solutions and irreversible chemical changes. By conducting investigations and experiments the children with then be able to write scientific reports on their findings. Alongside this, the children with enjoy exploring a short animation, The Alchemist Letter, before writing the ending.

 

Home Learning

For our Chemical Chaos project, you can choose one home learning activity to complete below. Your home learning is due: Monday 14th December 2020.

· Computing/Science —On Purple Mash under your 2Dos, there is an activity to be completed based on properties of materials. Choose 3 different materials and describe their properties. Are they hard or soft? Natural or man-made? Strong or weak? Heavy or light? Rough or smooth? Shiny or dull? Etc.

 

We also ask that you please read with your child at least 4 times a week and sign your child’s home school diary.

PE

This half term our PE session will be held on a Friday.  PE will be lead by your child’s class teacher. The sport we will be studying this term is Dance . We recommend children keep their PE kit in school all week in case of any last minute changes and take them home at the end of the week to be washed. As it is coming into winter, please can children bring in warm sports wear as we could be going outside.

 

Forest School

Forest School sessions will start the week beginning  2nd November 2020 with our specialist Mrs Fisher and Mrs Arnold.  Forest School sessions at King Campus will be every Wednesday morning and at Kirk Campus every Thursday morning. As Forest School will be taught in the morning, children are allowed to arrive at school in forest school kit but must get changed back into school uniform after their lesson. Please also bring your own wellies and spare socks.

 

Other information

Just a reminder the reading challenge is underway and your child has been given a reading challenge sheet to complete. If children complete the challenge at the end of the academic year they will receive a certificate and be entered into a prize draw. So lets get reading!

 

Also, there are log in details in your child’s school diary for Oxford Reading Buddy, Times Table Rock Stars and Purple Mash. These are online resources your child is using at school to support reading, times tables and computing. Your child can use their log in details at home so they can continue practicing.

There is also regular updated remote learning that can be found on the school website year group page if you are having to self isolate.

 

Lastly, Parents and Guardians, please if you have any concerns or questions your first port of call is your child’s class teacher. If the class teacher is unable to help then you must speak to the Year Lead. After that, this could be passed to a member of SLT and then the Head of Campus or Head Teacher.

Anglo-Saxon Warrior Workshop

Year 5's really enjoyed Paul Nolan's visit on Friday, where they took part in an Anglo-Saxon warrior workshop to introduce our new project, Back in Time.

The children got the opportunity to dress up, have a go at archery and explore lots of different Saxon artefacts. This was a great way to start our new project and has got all Year 5's extremely excited to learn more about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.

Forest School

Local Study Research and Presentations

Local Study

The children have really enjoy researching about our local area and what it would have been like in the Anglo-Saxon era. We used ancient maps, iPad and computers and different photographs. After they collected all their research, the children shared and presented their work in groups to the rest of the class.

Their presentations were brilliant. Well done Year 5!

Back in Time Outcome

 

Well done to all the children in Year 5, who prepared and performed their Anglo-Saxon and Viking exhibition. It is amazing to see how much you have learnt through the course of our project!

Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and putting on this exhibition has really show cased all the wonderful work we have produced over the last 7 weeks.
