We began Fifth Class in Room 17, just over a month ago, after a lovely Summer Break. We have been working really hard and have enjoyed our first month!
We really enjoyed Art, we explored different patterns and we painted some Autumnal Scenes. For PE, we started swimming and we will keep this up during October. For Science, we did two experiments exploring sound travel and insulation. We learned about the mountains, rivers and deserts of the world in Geography and mixed it with Art to make maps of the world. In English, we wrote Recounts of our Summer holidays and we are reading Charlotte’s Web. In History, we learned all about St. Louis in the past, we were shocked to find out that there was a fire before it was a school and that the old caretaker, Mr Cullen, lived up by the offices! We collected data in Maths to make bar charts and found out some interesting things about pupils in our school. We also began using Spellings for Me and enjoyed going to the computer room for testing.
This is some of our favourite work from the month, we hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. We are really looking forward to October, which begins with Friendship Fortnight!
Thanks for reading,
Here in St. Louis we are using the new online spelling programme called ‘Spellings For Me’.
It is an individualised spelling programme for each pupil based on the pupil’s ability.
We are already learning so much!
We were learning about narrative writing in Room 15 and decided to write fractured fairy tales for our friends in 2nd class.
It was great fun to come up with the ideas and to write our stories but we really enjoyed sharing them with our friends in 2nd class.
Room 11 have been learning so much about recount writing. We decided to type up our best recount that we have written. Come down to room 11 and have a read of some!
Room 15 were working on their learning words by playing Bananagrams!
Room 12 made ‘Chocolate Mug Cakes’ as part of an oral language class! We had lots of fun working in pairs to follow a recipe and eating our tasty treats.
The 5th class children in Room 1 and the 2nd class children in Room 8 joined together for paired reading. They had lots of fun reading to each other and being read to!
Room 11 have been discovering the different properties of various materials to decide which ones would suit our dream houses! We designed our dream houses before adding some materials to it. There were some whacky houses- would you like to live in an upside down house?
5th class children in Room 1 love playing Bananagrams. Over the year, it has helped to improve spellings and our vocabulary!
Room 11 + room 12 were lucky enough to have Mr Bermingham tell us a story about Jack and his three wishes. He was very funny and we enjoyed it so much! Thanks Mr Bermingham!
