Hello Year 5, I hope that you are all enjoying the jubilee celebrations that have been going on all around London since Saturday. I went to Putney on Saturday to see the flotilla, I had a brilliant view of all the boats as they passed under the bridge and gave them all a big wave! I watched some of the concert on TV last night. My favourite act was Kylie Minogue and Flawless. Did you enjoy it? Who was your favourite? I hope you enjoy the rest of your half term holiday and let’s hope this rain doesn’t last. See you all next week, Miss Jackson Hello Year 5, don’t forget to vote for our school blog! See you tomorrow. Miss J Hi Breana, Tami, Sheri and Ilham. I miss you very much and I hope you are doing well. My favourite activities have been rock climbing and archery. From Christelle Hello 5J, I hope you’re having a great time. My favourite activities have been rock climbing and going to the beach. From Chloe Hi 5J, I hope you’re having a good time like we are here in France. I really enjoyed archery and rock climbing. From Jireh Hi 5C, I really liked going to the boulangerie to buy cakes and I liked archery as well. I really miss you all, especially Tia. From Teyamo Bonjour 5J, I really miss you all and hope that you are having a good time with Mr R. I have taken part in many wonderful activities like, going to the beach, visiting the cider farm and going to Rouen. From Kyra Hello Year 5, We have received all of your emails, thank you very much! So far we have been to the aquarium, climbed an indoor wall, been to the beach & cider farm and visited a boulangerie where we purchased some wonderful cakes! We hope that you are enjoying your week so far & look forward to seeing you next week! Miss Jackson, Muse, Jireh, Kyra, Chloe & Christelle Some budding architects building their own chinampas… We have started learning all about the Aztecs (or Mexica as they were known). We found out that they settled on Lake Texcoco and built their city Tenochititlan on it’s marshy island. They created floating gardens to grow their crops. They were great space savers! We designed our own floating gardens called ‘chinampas’ in class this week. Check out our pictures! Hello Year 5, it’s been a while since I last updated the blog so here goes… Since returning to school after the Easter holidays we have been exploring poems written by significant authors. This week we will be focusing on writing and performing our own poems. Hopefully we will be able to upload some of our performances for you all to see. If you visit the poetry archive website at http://www.poetryarchive.org you can listen to poems being read aloud and watch interviews with some famous authors! Our new topic for this term is ‘Mexico and the Awesome Aztecs’ and in 5J we have been using Prezi to create a multimedia presentation. Remember to log onto our MLE online classroom for information and activities. Enjoy, Miss J Well done to those of you who have completed part of your homework and posted it on here, I am so far very impressed! I hope that you have all had a wonderful break and am looking forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow. Miss Jackson Good evening year 5, I hope you have all had fun this week completing tricky maths challenges. In 5J we tried to solve a problem called ‘sail away’, which was about getting people across a sea to an island. We used paper clips and ourselves to solve it. Have a go at this similar problem (you could even get your family to be the characters): A man has to take a hen, a fox, and some corn across a river. He can only take one thing across at a time. Unless the man is present the fox will eat the hen and the hen eat the corn. How is it done? post your answers on here. I know 6F completed this challenge last year so anyone with brothers or sisters in that class will have an extra advantage! Happy weekend, Miss Jackson Hello Year 5, here is the link to a fun addition/subtraction game. Try it out! Miss Jackson Maths Game Hello Year 5, Check out the link below for a great website to fun out a little bit more about our topic ‘Victorians’. Parkfield ICT Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Miss Jackson This week in 5j we have been writing instructions for a silly sandwich. We were focussing on using imperative verbs and connectives to make our instructions clear and easy to follow. We are now typing up our instructions to display in the classroom! Last week was ‘science week’ at SJL. Each day the science fairy sent us a mini investigation and on Wednesday we had lots of fun completing the ‘spiky potatoes’ investigation. Check out the pictures of our milk investigation and the bread we made in class. Can anyone from 5J answer the following questions: 1. Why are there small holes in the bread? 2. What is yeast? 3. Why does yeast make bread rise? 4. Baking bread is an irreversible change. Can you name any other irreversible changes? 5. Can you describe the changes made from the bread mix to the bread we tasted in class? Remember to use scientific language! DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE UPPER ROOM CHARITY INTO SCHOOL TOMORROW. In 5J this week we were so lucky to have author and poet, Alan Durant, with us to do a writing workshop. He shared lots about his own life and how and why he became interested in writing books and poetry. He read his book ‘Unfortunately’ to us and then the class had the opportunity to make up their own story using the same idea. There were some very humorous and interesting results! Can anyone from 5J post their own fortunately-unfortunately story on the blog? Wow Miss Davys was quick with her reply year 5! I totally agree that I am very lucky to have such a wonderful class. I hope that we will be able to blog with Culvers House Primary more often. Just a few reminders for you: Your spelling sentences are due on Tuesday. All of your spellings this week are based on shapes and their properties. As we have been studying 2d and 3d shapes in class this week, this should be easy to do. You can use spelling city to help you to learn them. Those lucky children with individual homework, that is also due on Tuesday. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and look forward to seeing you all bright and early on Monday for our last week of this half term. Hello 5J, This week has been so much fun. We have been planning and writing modern day versions of Robin Hood, adding and subtracting decimal numbers and investigating the fat content of different types of milk.

Happy weekend year 5. Taryn Yesterday in Year 5 we started to learn about the Water Cycle. We did an investigation into evaporation and condensation. Can someone in 5J explain what we did and what we found out? Tomorrow the girls from Year 5 are visiting Fulham Cross Secondary school for a language course, don’t worry boys you will be at school with me brushing up on our French too! Today we completed one of the investigations that the science fairy left for us. We investigated if a pendulum would change direction as it swings. We used salt to trace the pattern that it made. The children in 5J made some excellent predictions using scientific vocabulary. We thought that the pattern looked a little Saturn! What do you think? We won the teddy AGAIN!

I hope you are all enjoying your half term…I have been working hard writing your reports! See you next week Tuesday. Taryn This week in Year 5 we haver been thinking about writing from different points of view. We read parts of the story of ‘Matilda’ and then explored the character of Miss Trunchball. We read the story of the ‘Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig’ which we really enjoyed. My favourite part is when the Pig goes to get the pneumatic drill! We imagined we were ‘The Trunchball’ and wrote persuasive letters to a pretend board of governors trying to convince them that we were innocent and that it is the evil Miss Honey framing us. Year 5 came up with some brilliant ideas. In maths we have been thinking about factors and multiples of numbers. Can anyone tell me how we remember the difference between a multiple and a factor? Brainteaser: My age is a multiple of 8. Next year my age will be a multiple of 7. How old am I? I hope you all have a wonderful and safe half term. Taryn J We had a package from the science fairy. Inside were small blue stones. When we put them in water they expanded to 200 times their size. This week in 5J we made umbragraphs to see how shadows change with the position of the sun in the sky. Do you like the patchwork quilt that 5J made to remember the Royal Wedding? We spent lots of time designing our patches. We then used fabric paints, sequins and pens to decorate them. A fantastic piece of homework by Chyna in 5J! Hello 5J. This week your homework is to do some independent research about our new topic ‘Earth, Sun and Moon’. Please do not give me print outs from the Internet or anything that has been copy and pasted. I would like the information in your own words and presented over a double page in your homework books, just like the ‘Sound’ projects! I found the best ones were those that had pictures and did you know boxes. For maths I would like you to practice using the chunking method for division. Make 10 sums of your own in your books!

Each mouse was guarding a different door. “Get out of my way!” Mr H said to the mice. “You’re only allowed to go through one of the doors,” said Mrs Leggett, the goose, who was passing by. “Behind one door is a bucket full of juicy carrots and a pail of cold water. There’s nothing to eat or drink at all behind the other door.” “But how do I know which door leads to the carrots and water?” asked Mr H. “Just ask one of the mice,” answered Mrs Leggett. “But, you can only ask one mouse one question. One mouse always lies and the other always tells the truth.” Mr H thought hard, but he didn’t know what to do. Do you know what question Mr H should ask one of the mice to help him choose the right door?|

Brainteaser Brain teaser The teachers (Ms L, Ms B, Mr M and Mr H) all went to a fancy dress party (fairy, pirate, skeleton, ninja), and each took a delicious pudding (Pavlova, fruit salad, lolly cake, lamington). Neither Mr H nor the Ninja bought the Lamingtons. Ms L, who is allergic to Lolly Cake, got her favourite Skeleton costume out of her closet for the party. Ms B bought her world famous Fruit Salad, which she shared with the Fairy. It is an ancient and sacred rule that Pirates only ever take Pavlova to parties. Despite all expectations, Mr H did not wear the frilly, fluffy, pink Fairy costume. Who dressed up as what and which pudding did each teacher take?

Ok, here is the video that I promised I would upload to help you with the grid method for multiplication.
Remember your homework is to learn your spellings, write ten sentences using those, then write a speech explaining why we should all maintain a healthy lifestyle. Finally after all that you then can complete the six multiplication questions, using the video to help you, if needed. Here are some links to help you with persuasive writing and mutliplication and some games too.
This week in Year 5 we have welcomed Mr Bawtree, who will be working with us for 6 weeks. Within our maths sessions we have been learning how to find percentages of an amount. Can you remember how to find 50%, 25%, 10% and 1%. Remember for percentages, relate it to fractions which may help. While in our English lesson, Mr Bawtree taught use about persuasive writing, focusing on advertising. Can you remember the features of persuasion which may have been included in an advert?
Watch this video to recap the life cycle of a plant.

Friday 12th March
Firstly, Congratulations to Tashaine for being awarded the Star of the Week certificate, he has been working ever so hard on his fractions and really impressed me with his efforts. Keep it up!!
This week we have been extremely busy working on Myths and Legends. We have read and studied various Myths from around the world (creational myths, myths from Poland and China and many more) Can you remember some of the details of the myths you have read or the features all of them include? Post your answers below as a comment.
In maths, we have been working on fractions, being able to read various fractions, know how many of each fraction is in a whole one, a fraction of a number and changing improper fractions to proper fractions.
So, 5D, your homework is as follows, to learn your spelling given to you (the links to spelling city are below) to write a sentence for each word you are learning and also to revise fractions from your CGP maths books starting at page 33 – 37!
Have a great weekend and if you have any spare time, why not show your parent the build yourself wild website. . .
Enjoy, Mr Duffy (Dr Dolittle)
Year 5 – Currently in maths we are learning about fractions.
Can you remember how to change a fraction from a proper fraction to an improper fraction. Remember, an improper fraction has a numerator that is larger than the denominator.
In our English work, we have been studying Myths and Legends. Do you know of any famous myths and legends. Click on the link here and say which Legend do you think this picture is portraying?
