Owls - Y4 & Y5


Welcome to Owls (Year 4 & Year 5)

  

Miss Whiteside is our teacher.

Mr Briggs and Mrs Wood are our teaching assistants.

 


 

Welcome back for our final term!

We are very excited to begin our new whole school topic, Through the Telescope! 

Owls have already been truly inspired by this topic and their enthusiasm is shining through.

   

Miss Whiteside was very lucky to go to Disneyland Paris over the weekend and was thrilled to capture a photograph with our Pirate topic!

Decimals

We have began learning decimal numbers in tenths and hundreths thinking closely about the value of each digit. We also know the decimal equivalents to the fractions we were learning last term.

In History, we have been learning all about the Anglo-Saxon period. We have looked at villages and houses and how they differ from life today. We loved making an Anglo-Saxon village out of lego!

Spring Term

Here is our wonderful ZOOM display!

The children thoroughly enjoyed creating 3D solar systems and discussing the planets and stars. 

 

It is Children's Mental Health Week this week. We have had lots of discussions about how to keep our bodies healthy, including our minds. Owls thought of some super ideas of how to keep calm and relax, such as reading a book, listening to music, yoga, chilling with friends and watching youtube. In class this week, we have watched a clip from 'Inside Out', which focusses on mixed emotions. We have also listened to some music, done our weekly yoga session and started our mile a day.

Multiplication and Division

Lots of learning about multiplying and dividing in Owls this term. We have been focusing on written methods to help us solve problems more efficiently. We have also been focusing on learning our times tables because we understand this will help us. I am so pleased with the progress that has been made in the start of Spring!

Explanation Texts

In English, we have linked our learning with our whole school topic, Zoom. We have designed our own food machine, which can be sent to Tim Peake on the ISS. Have you ever wondered how a 'Fish and Chips Machine' works or a 'Pizza Machine' works? In Owls, we have been writing explanation texts of how these machines work.

Earth and Space

Mr Scholz is continuing to teach Science this term. He has already enthused Owls by encouraging them to create a video explaining how we get day and night. The best one will be chosen to be on NASA's website! How cool is that?

Place Value, Addition and Subtraction

We have already begun looking at place value and developing our understanding of the value of digits, reading and writing numbers and finding 1000 more and less than a given number. We have been ordering and comparing numbers and just started rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. Year 5 have even been exploring super large numbers into the millions! 

We have also completed lots of addition and subtraction calculations and solving problems. We are now super mathematicians at this!

Problem Solving

Welcome to Owls shop. 

The children all had the opportunity to enter Owls shop wih £10.00 and the chance to purchase two items. They were required to add the prices of the two items together to find the total of how much they had spent. Then, they needed to work out how much change they would receive.

Firebird

We are currently reading a magnificent text, the Firebird. We have completed comprehension questions about the text and role played lots of scenes in the text. At the moment, we are writing our own versions of the Firebird, where we have innovated the characters. We have an ice monkey, glittery dragon, orange snake, colourful chicken to name a few! So far, the children's stories are brilliant! I can't wait to continue reading them.

Gran, can you rap?

We have learnt the poem, 'Gran, can you rap?' and performed it and made a video of our poem. It was so cool :)

Mystery Stories

Oh no! What has happened to our classroom?

Today, we acted as police detectives to solve the crime using the clues and evidence to make inferences to find out who was the culprit. Look through the photos to find out who it was!

Art

In Art, we have combined our learning in History to exploring the artwork of Hans Holbein. We have noticed how realistic his paintings are and have been inspired by this for our own drawings. Keep checking for an update of our amazing artwork!
