Successful Seals

Welcome to the Successful Seals!


Our Long Row Hero of the week is:

Esmee Hennessey 

For always enjoying her learning and being so engaged and enthusiastic! A great start to Year 5 Esmee!

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!

We are learning all about place value. The children are learning the value of each digit in a 7 digit number.



Our current focus: Writing a biography 



We have been researching a very famous Victorian man, who changed the lives of children in London. Doctor Barnardo was an incredibly important man, and his charity 'Barnardos' still continues today!



We are learning all about Revolution!


We are not planning our own school revolution, don't worry! We have started to look at life during Queen Victoria's reign. This week, we have been researching the lives of children, and making comparisons between rich and poor children in London. We are making a lovely collage each, watch this space!



We are currently learning all about electricity. 




We have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday, we are currently learning lots about athletics and paceball! 


Please ensure you have full kit in school on these days.
