It's not boring at all because we get the SPaG crown, the Maths medal and the listening ears. You get to play games like Articulate!, Invisible Man (a spelling game) and the times-table challenge. Mrs Lohoar, who is my teacher, taught us how to do relative clauses. She also taught us how to write news … Continue reading Thoughts on Year 5…
Here we have our Mathematician of the Week (left) and our Star of the Week (right). Our Mathematician just keeps getting better and better with his times tables, and is also really impressing Mrs Lohoar and Mrs Kirk with his mental maths and problem solving. Our Star, meanwhile, has been absolutely amazing in reading, writing … Continue reading Last Week’s Superstars
Today we consolidated our perimeter learning with a bit of fun:
SPaG crown, for knowledge of prefixes, and Maths medal, for division skills, in one day!
The Women in Engineering group from the University of Sheffield was back today to teach some lucky Year 5s a bit about rockets. (Last time the engineers were here, if you remember, we participated in a bridge-building challenge.) Here we are finding out about what an aerospace engineer does. Do you know what force a … Continue reading It Really IS Rocket Science!
Here are this week's Mathematician (left) and Star (right). Our Mathematician has worked really hard on exchanging, using place-value counters to help, and he has absolultely flown with it. Our Star, meanwhile, has been so determined in Literacy and Maths. Well done, you two! Then we have this week's special mentions. First we have the … Continue reading This Week’s Superstars

We had to use lots of different types of skills: maths, teamwork, communication, reasoning and problem-solving. Obviously, we also had to employ some engineering skills: Which … Continue reading Bridge-Building Challenge
