We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to Year 5. The children have settled in well and there behaviour for learning is outstanding. We will be working on our school value of Respect through
out this half term, so we will be particularly looking out for children showing this value around the school.
It was lovely to see so many of you at the curriculum meeting on Monday, and the curriculum booklet will be sent home within the next few days.
Marvellous Me will have the classes transferred within the next week, so make sure you are looking out for stickers sent on this app! If you haven't got this already, please contact the office for more information.
Thank you for your continued support
Mrs Clifford, Mr Burt and Mr Dickson
Welcome to Year 5.
Your teachers for this year are: Miss Boulain, Mr Burt and Mrs Clifford.
The boys’ football team went to Goals for a competition last Wednesday. There were two teams representing Foundry Lane. They played 6-8 games. Ollie explained, “It was a tough competition but it was fun!” The striped team won all matches except for the semi-final. What an achievement! Unfortunately, the black team lost all their matches but showed fantastic support and sportsmanship.
Reported by Ollie, Archie R, Arjun, Eddie and Miss Boulain
In Science we have been exploring states of matter.
Dear Professor loone,
I am sorry to inform you of this but your findings on gas not existing is faulty.I have done experiments to prove you were wrong.
You said that you can not see gas.In one of the experiments we soaked a sponge in water and squeezed it .As the sponge has thousands of tiny holes the sponge is full of air.There for when we squeezed it air bubbles shot to the surface.
you claimed that air does not weigh anything.In one of the experiments we weighed a balloons one with air and one without.When we weighed the balloon without air it weighed 1g.But when we weighed the balloon with air it weighed 2g. The extra gram must be air.
Dear Professor Loone,
I am writing to you to say that your theories are incorrect.
Your theories are incorrect because air rises to the top of the water surface if it was trapped before. For example, when you squeeze a sponge the trapped air (that were in the corners) rises to the top of the water surface.
Year 5 enjoyed making their stirfry. There has even been requests for the recipe!
Lots of children used gluten free soy sauce to make the sauce.
The sweet sauce was 1tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tbsp honey.
We added 2tbsp of tomato ketchup to make a sweet and sour sauce.
If you wanted it less sweet you could reduce the amount of honey or lemon.
Welcome to the Year 5 page!
Your teachers this year are Miss Boulain, Mrs Clifford and Mr Burt. We hope you have enjoyed your first week back at school. Well done to everyone who remembered their PE kits. Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Homework is given out on a Friday to be returned by the next Wednesday. There is a curriculum meeting on Wednesday 13th September. If you want to know more about the curriculum in year 5 or have any questions, come along.
As part of our Science topic – children will have the chance to sew a planet from the Solar System.
If you would like to help with this we will be having a ‘DT Day’ on Thursday 11th May.
All children have been provided with their log in details for MyMaths - this is an online Maths resource that children use frequently at school and it's something they can access at home with their individual log in details!

Welcome back and Welcome to Year 5!
Firstly, we would like to say a huge well done to all the children for their fantastic efforts during their first week in Year 5 – all children have demonstrated a love of learning and a positive attitude to all tasks set! Keep up the good work!
As we are FAST approaching the end of term, could we ask for everyone to have a good look at home for any library books and any reading homework books (these were given out in the Autumn term) so we can complete an audit for the year.
Thank you in advance!
Mr Morgan & Mrs Gates
Just a quick note to say that there will not be any homework set for Year 5 for the remainder of the term due to the Key Stage 2 Production, Rio Olympics project, upcoming inset/strike day as well as transition days that are happening over the next couple of weeks - this has resulted in some changes to the timetable.
We would just like to thank all the children who have regularly completed their homework this year to a high standard and throughout the year they have produced some fantastic pieces of work of which have often been displayed in and around the classrooms!
Mr Morgan & Mrs Gates
As part of our indoor PE this term, we will be assessing the children in gymnastics whereby they will be using the large apparatus. In order for the children to be able to use this apparatus safely and correctly it is advised that they wear shorts to help firstly keep them safe and secondly for more grip when using the apparatus. If your child is unable to wear shorts, either for a medical reason or religious reason then can you please make the class teacher aware of this.
Mr Morgan & Mrs Gates
This website provides lots of links to online games and activities across the curriculum. It is especially useful for links to fun ways to practise their times tables.
Marwell Zoo Trip - Thursday 14th April
Just a reminder that Year 5 are going to Marwell Zoo this coming Thursday (14th) April to learn all about animals from the Amazon Rainforest. Please can you ensure that you've returned the permission slip for your child in order for them to come.
Also, children will need to wear their school jumper and they are encouraged to wear comfortable tracksuit bottoms/trousers along with suitable footwear for the day.
Mr Morgan & Mrs Gates
Children have been asked to bring in a favourite toy from when they were a baby to look at why the toy appeals to babies. If you no longer have this particular toy then a photograph will be okay to bring in!

Mr Morgan & Mrs Gates'
On Thursday 17th March, we will be walking to Regents Park school to take part in a P.E session that has been organised by their Year 10 & 11 students. Can we please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school in order for them to take part in this.

5J have had an amazing morning with Jonathan and his collection of interesting animals.
Here is what some of the class thought:
Outstanding! Awesome! Incredible! Scary! Petrifying! Tremendous! A wonderful experience! Fascinating! Exciting!
I had to let the gecko jump onto my shoulder and I had to stay calm when he did it . It felt ticklish when he was on my shoulder. Harjeet
Because I was the first one to hold the snake I felt worried because I never held a snake before! After I held the snake, Bourbon, I had overcome my fear of snakes. By Ben J
When Milly the millipede was held in my hands, I felt its rough legs run across my palm. It felt spiky, but actually no harm was caused. Now I can see how gentle millipedes are! J -Ryan
Tinsel, the cute small tarantula, was so tiny and adorable. She was a blue Caribbean tree spider. Her body is miniature sized for how fast she moves! J By Dante Texeira
Shaking with fright, I looked at the enormous tarantula. Ruby was scary but very fragile if you drop it it’s bottom would explode! We didn’t hold it but we looked at it through a camera that was on the computer screen - she was very hairy! Morgan.
I didn’t know what I was going to see when he said a snake - a small snake or a large snake? so when I met Bourbon I was scared but now I really like snakes. Natasha

Maths for Life in Year 5
In maths this week Year 5 had to design five offices for ten employees. We had a number of objects to put in them such as tables, lamps, bins, computer desks and drawers. We had to think about how many employees could be put in each room and the reception. We couldn't place furniture in the way of doors otherwise the people couldn't get in. We had to glue the objects on to the piece of paper to make a bank.
It was the most fun maths lesson ever!
By Ben Fyvie-Rae
This week we have been pretending to design a garden with every 1cm = 1m. We can have as many vegetable patches, grass and flowerbeds as we like but they have to be the right perimeter. We can only have one pond and one shed. A paving slab measures 1 square and we used these to make paths and patios for the client’s BBQ.
On Wednesday we had maths with a twist!
We were pretending that we were in jobs that use measure such as tailor, builder, shoe designer and carpenter. For my job I chose to be a carpet fitter with Daisy Lydia and Tomas. We had to measure the perimeter of the classroom (without the wet area) to work out how much carpet we needed. We then tried to calculate the area.
It was the best maths lesson ever!

Research information using the website www.water.org/
or the website www.wateraid .org about how water is used in less economically developed countries. You could look at these countries; India, Nepal, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Papua New Guinea and Cambodia or look at Nicaragua in South America.
Think about whether they have taps, bathrooms, toilets etc…
Think about how they do their washing or have drinking water etc…
You will need to use this in your Geography lessons this week, please do bring it back on time!

Welcome to Year 5 2013 -14.
We have had a busy start to the term with a Victorian school day and a visit to the Titanic exhibition at the Sea City Museum. Both activities were enjoyed by the children and supported their understanding of our local history. We are writing poems, diaries and researching the survivors of the Titanic in History and Literacy.
Below are some pictures of our Victorian day. We are glad we don't wear a dunce's hat or an 'I am stupid' sign today, but it was fun as part of our role play.
