Our learning this week - 26.11.18 to 30.11.18


We have another TT Rockstars battle that is due to end today - the children have shown great enthusiasm in our latest battle.  Well done to all those that took part!


In our RE lessons this week, we have started to think of all the different ways in which we can wait in hope for the coming of the Messiah.  We have created our very own advent calendar in class - please see the photographs below.  The children have been thinking of things they can do throughout the season of advent as we wait for the birth of Jesus Christ.


We had our final session with the South Ribble tag rugby coach.  Andy was impressed with the progress the children had made with their passing and rugby skills over the 5 week course.

This week in RE we have been learning about Islam.  We have learnt about Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr and the Hajj.  We have enjoyed exploring some of the different traditions of the islamic faith.  


In maths this week, we have finished our unit on statistics and next week we will be learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers.  


We also finished our English unit based on the book, Kensuke's Kingdom.  We have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the audio book version and the children have produced some fabulous pieces of writing linked to the topic.


On Tuesday and Thursday, the children completed a variety of activities linked to anti-bullying week.  


Have a look at some of our work in the photographs below.

5H meet our class governor - 18th October 2018

Today we had a meet and greet session with our class governor: Mrs Katherine Griffiths.  She came into 5H to tell us all about her role as a governor.  The children had lots of questions for Mrs Griffiths, especially related to her day job as a podiatrist.  We look forward to welcoming Mrs Griffiths into our classroom throughout the school year.

What have we been learning this week?  15th October 2018


We are into our second week of addition and subtraction in our maths lessons.  The children have been rounding to find approximate answers and have been using inverses to problem solve.  All of the children in 5H have shown a great understanding of column addition and subtraction.


Our science topic this half term has been 'Forces'. The children have really enjoyed investigating a variety of forces such as: gravity, air resistance, friction and water resistance. They also had fun making their own pulley system.  Have a look at our photographs below:
