|Netball Club - Year 5 In Action|
The children have worked individually to practice these skills, then worked in pairs or groups of 3 to create a short movement sequence which had to include a push into a shoulder stand and pushing & swinging movements. The perseverance of the children was great to see. A shoulder stand without wobbling is not easy, working in time in a group is even harder!
The children have also been learning the under-arm and over-arms serve in tennis. Some of the children have quite accurate tennis serves already. This is something we will be continuing to develop and refine next week. The children could also practise their serves at home too!
|Musical Theatre Club - Year 5 In Even More Action|
In Maths, Mrs Pond-Barrett’s groups have investigated and calculated the areas and perimeters of rectangles, squares and other shapes. The children found it quite surprising that even though the area of a selection of shapes might be the same, the perimeter can be different!
|Year 5 Has Members In Rounders' Club|
Mr Westmoreland’s group have further developed their multiplication skills using 2-digit numbers and dividing 3-digit numbers by single-digit numbers. They have also been investigating number rules.
Homework: The children have some topic related homework this week. They have some research to complete about a particular mountain range. The research will form part of a small group project, so it is important that the children answer their set of questions in as much detail as possible. The children can also add photographs/ images of their particular mountain range to support their projects.
Thank you for your continued support. Have a lovely weekend! Mrs Pond-Barrett
