Spellings and Homework

Last week in Year 5 we started our next unit of English on narrative writing. We were intrigued by a picture which was revelled to us on Monday. We wrote descriptive phrases for it and decided what the four children in the picture may have been saying. We made sure our speech was correctly punctuated when we wrote what the children were saying.


Mrs Rorke & Mrs White’s groups: shield, science, patient, perceive, receive

Mrs Davies & Miss Cole’s groups: therefore, though, although, thought, through.

The children will also have their personal spellings to learn.


DT: research a famous chef who uses seasonal locally grown produce. Due Friday 31st March 2017.

Education City: Maths activities, Due Wednesday 29th March 2017.

Maths homework tasks on time will be set tomorrow, to be completed by Monday 3rd April 2017.

Year 5 Science Week

This week was Science week and Y5 did two experiments on ‘Colour in the natural environment’ and ‘Wind speed and direction’.

We used bubbles to find the wind direction. We followed the bubbles and used a compass to find the average wind direction. Then we timed how long the bubbles took to travel ten metres and used this to work out the speed of the wind.

Unfortunately, due to problems with the blog I am unable to upload pictures at the moment, please visit the Birch Class blog to see pictures of Science week.


Mrs Rorke/ Mrs White’s group: belief, thief, grief, friend, obedient

Mrs Davies/Miss Cole’s group: straight, strange, strength, suppose, surprise.


English: determiners Due Friday 24th March 2017

Education City Due Wednesday 29th March 2017 (This will be set on Wednesday 22nd March, so giving the children a week to complete the games).
