  • Years 5 and 6 Sports Morning    

Wednesday 11 May (8.45am – 12.50pm)                Secondary Sports Field

The students have been busy in their houses organising and choosing their events. All students will have the opportunity to participate in a minimum of 2 events .There is also an option to take part in a fun tug-of-war and house team skipping. After registration, the students will assemble on the Secondary Sports Field. The day will begin with a warm up and stretches. The events have been designed around the FOBISIA designated athletic events. Years 5 and 6 students have been using curricular PE lessons to practice their events. Certain events (track, high jump, skipping and tug of war) will be timetabled events. The remaining events of; long, triple, or three springs jump; quoit throw; shot putt and basketball push are non- timetabled events. This means that competitors can freely move around these events and perform when they have the chance.

LITERACY   

In Literacy this week we will be beginning continuing to look at the book ‘Millions’ to co-incide with the launch of our new topic ‘If I Ruled the World’. We will move further into the book and get to know our protagonist, Damien, a little better. We will use his enthusiasm for collecting information as a springboard to write our own information texts: looking at how and why  he collects information and presents it to the reader.

MATHS 

In Maths this week we will be looking at  recalling and using equivalence between simple fractions, decimals and percentages including in different contexts. We will also look to solve problems involving the relative size of two quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts.

THEMED LEARNING

This week is the second week of our exciting new topic ‘If I Ruled the World’. We will be continuing to look at the profound questions that we considered in our Entry Point last week. We will continue to look at issues that have no clear answers and discuss how to weigh up evidence to come up with our own opinions. We will also use our deep thinking to inspire our artwork based on using digital media to create a collage.

Spelling en woordbeeld

We herhalen met spelling in elke groep de klankengroepen (letterdief, letterzetter, 2-tekenklanken en poortwachter).
