Year 5 Week 24 2014

Big Maths, This Morning
This week in Maths, the children have been working together in pairs and small groups to complete some investigations and problem solving activities.  We have also been completing some assessments.  The children have all done very well and should be very proud of their achievements.

We have continued to study the legend of Robin Hood in Literacy.  The children explored different versions of the story and made comparisons between them.  We have then focussed on the beginning part of the story, retelling the opening scenes as a ‘whoosh’ and ‘talk for writing’ the part when Robin Hood meets Little John for the first time.

Mrs Hood used her Drama session this week to begin to explore the character of Robin Hood.  The children used difference sources that described Robin Hood

We have begun our rounders ‘season’ this week with our first session focussing on throwing for accuracy as well as distance, and then developing our catching skills.  Then incorporating these skills during a rounders match.  We have also continued with our tennis sessions and the children were working on developing their racket and ball skills to play simple rally games.

Homework
  • The children have brought home some homework from Drama this week, looking at the character of Robin Hood using different sources.
  • Continue to read daily.
  • Children can continue to work on their times table challenge.
  • Don’t forget Creative Homework projects need to be completed by 27th June.
Thank you for your continued support! Have a lovely weekend. Mrs Pond-Barrett
