Year 5 Class - 5JE - Autumn - 2018 - 2019

Welcome to Class 5B's class page.  The class teacher this year is Mr Blackburn and the teaching assistant is Miss L Bligh.  We hope you really enjoy reading our pages.
Things to remember;
Our dance day is Tuesday.
Our PE day is Wednesday.
Please make sure P.E kits stay in school all week. Tracksuits will be needed shortly as the weather starts to get a bit colder!
Homework is given out on Monday and should be returned completed on a Friday. Each week there will be a Maths and an English task connected to the work we will be doing in class that week. 
Spellings can be practised every night using the look, say, cover, write, check method. And times tables can be practised with speed and accuracy sheets.
These skills are very important as we prepare for Year 6! 
Please also try to read every night! Children who read every night and bring their reading records in every day will be rewarded with certificates and book marks as they progress up our reading ladder. 
We appreciate all of your time and help and hope to make lots of progress and have lots of fun this year!
Mr Blackburn.
Science Week - Forces
In science we were looking at how friction affected the movement of a shoe on a range of surfaces.  
Water Resistance
In science today we looked at how water resistance can affect how quickly or how slowly an object sinks.  In our groups we tested a sphere, a cube and and a cone.  We then had to try and get a 10g ball of plasticine to float.
In Mandarin we were learning how to form pinyin characters.
