Lime Class - Year 5 Key information
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Fridays (Friday will be swimming this term) and children are expected to take part in all PE lessons. They should come to school in the correct PE kit on these days.
Please make sure your child comes to school with a named water bottle.
Homework will be set via Seesaw on a Thursday and unless specified, will be due in the following Wednesday. Your child should upload their homework to Seesaw by this day.
Additionally, Children are expected to read either to an adult at home or to themselves for at least 15 minutes a day. Their reading record should be signed every time they read so that we can keep track at school. If your child reads competently to themselves, ask them some questions about the book so that you can see if they have understood what they have read. Discussing different texts with your children will help them to develop their own love of reading.
For Maths Investigation Day this year, Lime Class took part in a variety of different investigations. We focused on developing our problem solving skills both independently and working as part of a team.
As well as the different investigations that the children participated in, we also had lots of fun as a class when we learned how to play a Maths-based strategy game that originated in Ancient Egypt (which links to our current class topic).
Below you can find some pictures of our class carrying out their activities from throughout the day.
Our day began with the chance to explore the space exhibits. Everybody was given the opportunity to become an astronaut and we found out lots of interesting information about the planets in our Solar System, gravity, light in space and lots more.
We were then fortunate enough to spend some time in the other Science exhibits. Lime Class had the opportunity to learn sign language, build earthquake-resistant structures and discover lots of new information about sound.
Lime Class then participated in an extremely informative workshop, where we were given the opportunity to conduct some of our own Science experiments. We looked at both light and heat with a specific focus on space and space travel.
Our day concluded with a show at the planetarium. This was a truly breathtaking experience for all of us and it inspired lots of fantastic scientific questioning. WHAT A FANTASTIC DAY!
