Class 5P

Week Three. w/e: Friday 22nd September 2017

What a busy, fantastic third week of year five! I am really impressed and proud of all your hard work and effort so far this year ~ well done!

Well done for raising nearly £500 on Jeans for Genes day. A great cause!

Good Luck to all those running in the marathon on Sunday... You can do it!!

Science homework: please bring in (or email me and I can print) a baby photo for next Friday (29th September)!


This week we have continued to look at the book 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret'. We have looked at verbs, adverbs and powerful adjectives. We have also looked at auxiliary verbs and within that: modal verbs. You have created some fantastic posters for your own information. Can you remember an example of an auxiliary/modal verb?  Next week, we will be delving deeper into the message that the invention might be writing...


This week we have been investigating square numbers, before moving on to place value of digits up to the millions. If you want to play the nice or nasty number game, all you need is a dice, 4-7 squares each and you're away! Here are the instructions if you need them: 

Next week, we will be looking at how we can use the bar model/method to solve problems.

Ancient Greece:

In our first topic lesson of the year, we have done a 'market place' activity; becoming experts in one aspect of Ancient Greece and then moving round to teach/learn to/from other people. Well done! Next week, we will be looking at democracy and the Ancient Greek voting system...


On Friday, we started our Science topic which is living things & life cycles. We looked in detail at the human life cycle, creating a range of wonderfully presented posters!

Week Two. w/e: Friday 15th September 2017

Parents/Carers, three key documents were sent home this evening: Autumn Term curriculum map, homework letter and Autumn Term key dates. The three documents are also attached to the foot of this page. 

Ancient Greece

Wow! What a fantastic hook we've had today (Friday)! We've discovered our topic for this term will be Ancient Greece. We have competed in Olympic sports, created the latest Ancient Greek fashion, tasted Greek food, created an Ancient Greek musical instrument, and performed a Greek dance. I can tell from all of the conversations, you have had a fantastic day, class 5P. I can't wait to get stuck into our Topic! What is something you want to find out about the Ancient Greeks?


This week we have started to look at the book 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret'. This graphic novel/written story has a range of media to portray the events. We have looked at expanded noun phrases, detailed description and how to edit our own work. A fantastic first week of English! Next week, we will be delving deeper into the invention that Hugo is creating...

My apologies, in the rush of the Topic launch, we didn't get chance to hand out spellings. They will now be sent out on Monday 18th September.


This week, we have been looking at the number system: multiples, factors and prime numbers. You completed a fantastic investigation into prime numbers! Next week, we will be at prime factors and place value in more detail.

Welcome to year five, class 5P!

It has been fantastic to have spent the past three days getting to know you all better! You should all be proud of the hardworking attitude you have returned to JG with. 

You have created a fantastic range of hat inspired artwork, filled with objects or ideas which are special to you. It's been great to see your interests!

Next week, we will begin our year five work. In English, we will be looking at what it means to be a year five writer, and how you can extract details from pictures. In Maths, we will be investigating factors, multiples and prime numbers...exciting stuff!

From next week:

  • Mathletics will be set on a Tuesday, due in the following Tuesday. 
  • Spellings will be set and checked on a Friday.
  • I will be looking at your planners/reading records on Tuesday.
  • PE will be on a Tuesday and Thursday, so please remember your PE kit.

I will be giving you all a copy of the timetable, once we've had a week or two to iron out any mistakes.

Parents and carers, the meet and greet will be on Monday 11th September at 2:45. If you are unable to make it, don't worry, the PowerPoint will be on this class page next week. Feel free to catch me on the playground, or send me an email.

Have a great weekend, stay safe and happy!
