A reminder to all Year 5 children - please bring in an old pair of trainers/wellies TOMORROW (13/11) so that you can take part in the tree planting.
What a start to the half term! Monday was spent on the WOW starter for our new topic 'Home and Away'. We walked down to the Green where we completed a traffic survey and looked at the building use. We were then invited into St. Nicolas' church where we had a look at an exhibition that looked at the history of Druids Heath. We had a walk around Kings Norton park and then walked back up Parson's Hill on our return to school.
Thursday saw us make a return journey back down Parson's Hill when we visited Kings Norton library. The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit and they were very enthusiastic about visiting the library later in the year. We have begun looking at fractions in maths and the children have worked hard when trying to understand difficult concepts.
Have a great weekend!
Wow, what a half term! It seems like yesterday that we had our first day together in 5M and the last 8 weeks have just flown by. This week we have been focusing on division in maths and using modal verbs (could, would, should) in our English lessons. We had great fun thinking about what our lives could be like when we're 30 - particularly those huge houses and expensive cars!
The week ended on a wave of excitement with the Halloween disco on Thursday evening. Well done to those who won a prize in the competitions but a huge well done to all of you who attended and dressed up. You all looked amazing and I'm sure that you'll enjoy celebrating over half term!
Thank you for all of your hard work this half term, have a wonderful week off.
The children have had an excellent week! We have enjoyed reading our new text 'The Mysterious Traveller', which has taken us to the story of Mariama and her grandfather deep in the deserts of Mali. Today we have been working on a book review and hope to add the finishing touches on Monday! In maths we have been looking at multiplication and division this week and it has been great to see the children growing in confidence as they become more familiar with the methods used to solve these problems.
We had a great time on Tuesday afternoon when we made our jewellery pieces out of clay. The children thoroughly enjoyed designing and making their pieces and they are looking forward to painting them next week before taking them home.
Have a great weekend!
Another exciting week in 5M! We have been focusing on column subtraction in maths this week and the children have been doing fantastically. We have been writing a set of instructions in English and the children have produced some excellent work detailing how to keep their mean, horrible Overseer happy. We have studied the character of the Overseer in our class text 'Cloud Tea Monkeys'.
It has been brilliant to see lots of children bring in lots of homework this week. So much so, our homework display is now full and I have had to stick some in the cloakroom! I would be thrilled if everyone had a piece of homework on display by half term!
Have a lovely weekend.
We've had an excellent week in 5M, the children have really applied themselves and produced excellent work in Maths and English in particular. We have been focusing on column addition of 5 & 6 digit numbers and the children have been extremely enthusiastic in wanting to tackle hugely challenging questions.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed reading 'Cloud Tea Monkeys' this week and have written some amusing and detailed accounts on how the noble art of 'tea-tasting' should be performed.
We also had a special treat on Friday - we tried lots of different types of tea! The children sampled teas infused with peppermint, berries and superfruits but the clear favourite was Mrs. Cheema's Masala Chai tea - this had flavours of cinnamon, cardamon and ginger! Thank you to Mrs Cheema for taking the time to make it for us.
Have a great weekend!
Firstly, I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!
Last week the children were learning to write descriptively. The children planned, drafted and wrote their own piece of descriptive writing, using a wide vocabulary and relative clauses to make their descriptions as detailed as possible. We started a new class text today - it is called Cloud Tea Monkeys and follows the story of a young girl who lives near to a tea plantation in the Himalayas.
In maths we have been learning about rounding 5 and 6 digit numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10,000 and 100,000. We will now focus on negative numbers, addition and subtraction this week.
Another fun week in 5M! The children have been ordering 4, 5 and 6 digit numbers (and doing it excellently!) and developing their knowledge of the Mayans. We've been writing detailed descriptions, developing our language and studying the author's choice of language
within an extract.
We also had our WOW starter this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed making their own Mayan hot chocolate, adding some cinnamonand even a sprinkling of chilli powder. We then compared it to the hot chocolate that we're familiar with - this went down slightly better than the Mayans version!
Spellings will be handed out on Monday, please remember your PE kit if you have not brought it in already.
Have a great weekend!
Hello and welcome to Class 5M!
As you know, I am a new teacher at Broadmeadow and I have had a great first week getting to know the school, staff and the children. I will try and keep this blog as up to date as possible during the school year!
Monday is our PE day so the children will need to bring their PE kits with them on Monday.
Homework grids were sent out today (Friday 6th) and the children have a range of activities to choose from. I am looking forward to seeing the work that the children produce so that I can put it up on our homework display board. Home readers have also been sent out this week - please spend some time reading together, even if it is just for 10 minutes a day!
Thank you to all of the children for their hard work this week, I hope you all have a wonderful and restful weekend!
