This week in Norfolk 5

Week Beginning Monday 15th July 2024

Our science lesson, finding out about irreversible changes, was lots of fun.  the children enjoyed thinking about the effects of burning, boiling, banging, and eating popping candy was probably the highlight!  We all have a much better understanding of reversible and irreversible changes.

 

We have completed our White Rose scheme of learning for Year 5!  Just in time.  We will spend our last few days of Year 5 consolidating and practicing our knowledge to ensure we're ready for Year 6 learning.

 

We have almost reached the end of Pax, our class novel.  We are just predicting what will happen at the end of the book and writing our own endings, before we hear the last few chapters next week.

 

We have piles of books and work that the children are bringing home before the end of term.  Please ensure your child has a plastic bag or tote bag in their rucksack to help them carry their books home.  Thank you

 

Art exhibition

Home learning and spellings will be set each week on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday. We will be testing mixed x table in multiples of 10 and 100 times tables on Wednesday 3rd July.  For example 80 x 40 =

Times Tables Rockstars! 

To keep practising the multiplication taught in class, and challenging yourself to keep the ones you already know fresh, don’t forget to log into your Times Tables Rockstars account.

Rapid recall of multiplication is essential for success in maths and Times Tables Rockstars gives children self-confidence, recognition and motivation to improve.  Challenge yourself to beat your score, build your knowledge and watch your confidence sore, as you become a Rockstar!

Please ask your class teacher if you need replacement log in details.

Reading

All children have been given a new AR bookmark and know their AR bands.  They have selected a book to read at home and school.  Please ensure you hear your child read regularly and record on Boom Reader.  I have log in reminders for the children to bring home.

 

Please note: pupil login details have changed slightly due to an upgrade that has taken place on the Accelerated Reader platform. Pupil login details (user name and password) should now be enter in all lower case (no capital letters at all). These login details are used each time your child quizzes a school reading book which carries an accelerated reading quiz code.

 

Music Knowledge Organiser

Below is the music knowledge organiser for this term's music topic. To help with their in-class learning, please can the children read over this each week.
