May Half Term

As it is half term from Monday, there will be no work set for the week.

Instead, enjoy the sunshine, read some books, play with your forgotten toys and spend time together doing nothing in particular.

If you do need some inspiration for things to do I have attached some documents with some outdoor activity ideas, a life experiences menu and some STEM challenges. There is no expectation for you to upload anything, however, if you would like to share what you have been doing, I would love to see πŸ™‚

Hope you’re all staying safe and well.

Keep smiling you awesome bunch!

Happy half term

5th May Life Experiences Menu

Here are a selection of life experiences that you may wish to try alongside the work that you are doing on Google Classrooms. Maybe you could create your own Life Experience Menu with you family. What would you include on yours?

Stay safe and well. Keep smiling and being awesome!

27th April Google Classrooms

I have been so impressed with all of the hard work and engagement with using Google Classrooms these last couple of weeks. Here is a selection of your work in History, Art, PE, PSHE, Music, English and Maths.

Thank you to all of the parents for your amazing support.

Keep up the good work Thames class!

Hi Year 5

Hope you’re getting ready for a splendid Easter with your family. Next week’s home learning tasks have been added to Google Classrooms and will appear on Monday morning. Remember to try to do what you can and be kind to yourself. I have set a deadline of Friday 17th and would love to see how you have been getting on. Thank you to those of you that have been sharing their learning and activities, it’s been great to see.

All the very best, Miss Battishill

Easter Holidays

Hi Year 5 children and parents, I hope you have had a lovely first week and have managed to complete some tasks from your knowledge organisers. Did you know that you can upload photos or documents to show me on Google Classrooms? It would be great to see what you have been doing.

After the Easter holidays, I will be setting 5 x English, 5 x maths and 5 x topic activities. But for the Easter Holidays, I thought I would give you some suggested activities that you may wish to do with your family. I will be trying many of these with my 3 children, aged 7, 4 and 10 months! Wish me luck!

Most of all guys stay safe, keep active, make memories and smile. We will get through this.

Have a fantastic Easter.

Miss you all.

Speak soon, Miss Battishill

A hello from Miss Battishill

Hi Year 5, I hope you are all really well. I was so looking forward to returning from maternity leave to work with you. Doing it virtually is new to us all! Stay safe and keep active. From Miss Battishill

Class of 2018/2019 below….

What a busy Spring term we’ve all had! The children have done some really exciting things, including our residential in London, lots of sporting activities and began our new topic – Infinity and Beyond!

The children will be practising their spellings this week.

For Maths, it would be really positive to see children measuring different objects around the house, converting them between metres, centimetres and millimetres.

Our New Topic!

We have started our new topic recently and are all really enjoying it! So far, we have learned about the solar system, the planets, day and night and Neil Armstrong (ask us, we’ll tell you!). The children have enjoyed creating their fact files on their chosen planet, keen to create a museum-esque display, similar to the one that we saw in London! Our next steps are to think more about the ethics of going into Space… thinking about how Neil Armstrong would have felt going to space, and whether or not it is ethically feasible to send animals to space.
