Class 9

Welcome to Class 9’s page. We are year 5 and are taught by Miss Hutchings with Mrs Goulding as our teaching assistant and Mrs Blackey in to support us too!

We hope you enjoy looking at our page and finding out what we have been learning about this term. Please remember we have PE on Mondays, homework is due on Wednesday and reads for the week are checked on Friday.

Any other questions, feel free to ask Miss Hutchings!

Our topic for terms 5 and 6 will be 'Food for Thought'. Come back to our page soon to see more of the learning we will be doing!

 

Over the Easter holidays, we have asked that the children take part in cooking at home to prepare for this. It would be brilliant to see any menus of the food they produce or photos of them cooking. 

 

Our theme for terms 3 and 4 is Inventors and Inventions. We will be focusing on the life and work of Brunel before coming up with our own bridges and inventions in term 4! Scroll down to have a look at what we've been up to...

In term 4, we have been writing our own story inspired by Bridge to Terabithia. We started by thinking of a character for our story and used hot-seating to get into their mindset.

Every child has the Linguascope login stuck into the front of their homework book so they can use it at home. If your child's book is missing a sticker, let Miss Hutchings know and she can put one in for you!

We used online research to work out how much it would cost to build a bridge whilst sticking within a reasonable budget. 

Online safety

 

The children have shown a great awareness of e-safety this year, understanding the potential risks of being online and knowing how they can solve these. If you or your child would like any extra information, Thinkuknow has lots of games and other info which can hopefully answer any questions.

The Bath Rugby Foundation are spending Wednesday afternoons with us in Term 3 working on our 'Stickability', developing our learning skills, confidence and resilience. The children are having a great time learning some tag rugby but also showing fantastic focus and teamwork. 

Maths

Our maths lessons follow a similar pattern every week to make sure we are carrying out a range of activities!

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, all of our lessons are based around number. This includes the four operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing), fractions and place value.

We alternate our Thursday and Friday lessons between shape, space, measure and statistics and practise problem solving using ‘STOPS’.

English

 

Our writing this term is going to be non-fiction and focused around our topic of Inventors and Inventions. We will be looking at Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the bridges he created, as well as bridges in the present day. We will be writing biographies, newspaper reports and magazine articles, making sure our writing includes the features of these texts, as well as ensuring our writing is always clear!
