Year 5Mr Oliver, Mr Plant, Mrs Plant and Mrs Sawyers.
Welcome to Year 5!
Hello and welcome to class 5RO!
Spring term is here and we eagerly look forward to the many activities we are going to take part in. Some of the highlights of the upcoming term are: skiing at Silksworth dry slope, streetdance in P.E. and a visit to the new Sunderland landmark – the Northern Spire.
View the website weekly to find out more and see the photographs!
In our first lesson looking at magnets and forces, we carried out an investigation around school to see which types of metals would attract magnets and which would repel them.
We used paints to create winter scenes and decided on the perspective we wanted our picture to be seen from. Look at the end results!
To complete our topic on the ‘Groovy Greeks’, Year 4 took part in a food tasting session. We tried different culinary delights such as calamari, halloumi, feta cheese, yoghurt, olives and tzatziki. Our facial expressions will tell you whether we liked the food…
Once again, our Christmas Fair was a huge success. Thank you for your continued support. Have a lovely Christmas!
Class 5 love our weekly visit to the school library where we become totally engrossed in our books.
A huge thank you to you all for your fabulous contributions to our Macmillan Coffee Morning. We raised a staggering £434.41. It was a great success and we all enjoyed eating lots of cake.
Some of Year 4 worked together to solve a roman numeral crossword. We were so proud of each other when we completed it! For some of us, it was our first time trying to do a crossword of any kind and Mrs Wardle made it even harder by making us solve calculations in roman numerals!
The Sunderland LAF Team have been working alongside Year 4 around leading a healthy lifestyle. We discussed the different food groups and what makes up a balanced meal and we were shocked when we found out how many teaspoons of sugar there are in a mars bar and a can of coke!
We have been completed puzzles in Maths – some us completed paper jigsaws and some of us created our own addition fortune tellers. It was great fun making our own questions to test our friends on and we had fun playing against each other. Some of us even included decimal addition! We are now addition superstars!
Kassidy and Charlie worked together to complete a rounding puzzle. They completed the puzzle, even rounding to the nearest tenth and hundredth! Well done!
We have been working on our hockey skills in Year 4. We have a quick sticks hockey tournament coming up in November and are improving our dribbling, passing and shooting skills.
This week we have been working on our team building and communication skills. Mrs Wardle and Mrs Rutherford set us group challenges – they were very impressed with us!
