Successful Seals

Welcome to the Successful Seals!

 

Our Long Row Hero of the week is:

George Matkin!

For being enthusiastic, hard-working, a good friend to others and resilient in everything he does and has done since September.

Our current whole class aims:

 

Reading:  We love reading in Year 5/6. We are 'Reading to Red' to achieve a sticker at the end of every week, but we must read at least three times, although the more times, the better! We are doing very well at the moment, lots of people achieved their ten stickers this week!

 

We are developing shared reading strategies.

 

We are focusing on the following strategies (try these at home too!) 

  • making pictures in our heads
  • listening to someone read 
  • asking questions when we don't understand (clarify)
  • summarising (first, next, then)
  • predicting using the text
  • inferring using the text 

 

We are becoming more confident every day!

 

Maths

 

We are learning all about multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.

 

Last half term, the children learnt all about fractions, they were adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions, mixed numbers and integers. They found it tricky at first, but are now superstars!

 

The children also found out that 'percentage' means 'out of 100'

 

 It is so important for children to know their timestables, all children have a TT Rockstars login. TT Rockstars is the key to success for multiplication, division and fractions!

English

 

Our current focus: Writing a persuasive text


We are currently reading 'Pig Heart Boy', we have been looking at the choice Cameron has to make about using a pig heart to keep him alive. This is leading towards persuasive writing, where the children will decide whether they are for or against the idea. 

 

Our last topic was writing an information text about the heart! The children used 'The Snoozatron' to help them understand information texts and causal connectives.

Praise from Ms Lodge for wonderful work!

Topic:

We are learning all about the heart and the body!

 

We have dissected hearts, been the blood in the human circulatory system and painted images of the heart so far.

 

The children are thoroughly enjoying their new topic, we have plenty of new biologists in the making!

Science:

 

We are currently learning all about the human body with a focus on the heart. 

 

 

 

Last half term we learnt all about forces,

 

We have had lots of fun last  half term. We made parachutes to test air resistance, boats to test water resistance and looked at how a bump on the head helped everyone learn about gravity.

We tried to pump as much blood as the heart in a minute.... 1.3 gallons, with each beat we could move 1/4 of a cup! We couldn't pump as much as the heart.
